I stayed at Great Keppel in January 2014. This was after several weeks travelling through Cambodia and then Australia. Everything had been very busy, so staying there was really relaxing down time. The tent was great, the bed comfortable, the communal kitchen well equipped the staff very helpful. You could always find a beach with absolutely no-one on. The wild... More

We stayed at great keppel holliday village for 3 nights in a decked tent. Geoffs accommodation is really clean and relaxed, we almost had the hole place for our selfs! Even though we never met Geoff, only talked to him over the phone. We thought he sounded like a really nice guy and a great host! Cheers from Sweden

Great service! Great island for snorkelling, Jeffery the man that runs the show is the sweetest owner i've ever met. Very wise and kind man he even took us out on his boat and dropped us/picked us up on the other side of the island.

The Holiday Village is fantastic, stayed both in the cabins which are clean and roomy and in the tent which was tidy and comfortable also. It's a very safe environment for children with everything they need to play with provided free of charge, toys to take to the beach, snorkelling gear, paddle boards etc. The communal kitchen is very clean...

I went to Great Keppel Island two times this year. Everytime it was just beautiful: hot in summer and still nice in winter. You can swim, snorkel, use one of the stand-up-puddle boards, hike, relax on the beach etc.

My sister and I spent 6 days on this fabulous island...we could have stayed forever.! The turquoise ocean, white sand, colorful fish, birdsong and sunsets were magnificent, as were the deserted beaches and hiking trails! Holiday Village is a clean, comfortable, friendly and peaceful oasis.The gracious host and owner, Geoff Mercer is a gem. He topped our list of Australia's... More

Great Keppel Island is amazing! I had a wonderful stay at the Holiday Village and Geoff was a great host! The accomodation is very affordable, simple, and comfortable with added perks like free paddle boards and snorkle equipment. Do yourself a favor a visit the Island!

Great Keppel island seems to be over looked by so many people. It is stunning. White sandy beaches and turquoise water. You can have any beach to yourself. The holiday village is very clean. We stayed in the double tent for $90 p night which seems exp for a tent but you get to use the stand up paddle boards... More

If you want to escape and just totally relax, this is the place to be. Everyone was really friendly and the people who stay here are all like minded travelers, not a typical tourist place. So if you want luxury probably best not to stay here.

I loved staying here. The tent was great. The village is simple but spotlessly clean with a shared kitchen...however you can eat at the restaurant next door if need be...also Geoff made the most delicious Boston Bread for breakfast which everyone shared...he was the perfect host..there if you needed him but happy to leave you be too....the gardens were lovely...
