I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Geoff bends over backwards to make customers happy. We're an American couple on a RTW tour and oddly, this was the highlight of our Australia trip, even considering we saw Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef, among other places along the coast. It's a low budget, beautiful spot on a... More

We had a group of 8. 5 of us were in Dolphin Cottage (which needs a little TLC I must admit) and the others in Cabin 1. The first night the temp dropped crazy low and we froze our butts off with no blankets. I was over it at this point. However the next day we were plied with as... More

Stayed here with my daughter for 5 days over Easter. We had an amazing time sleeping in a tent with real, comfortable beds, furniture and electric. All perfectly adequate and we really enjoyed our cosy tent with its sheltered deck and lovely outlook. The loos and kitchen were kept clean by friendly staff, who even made yummy muffins for all...

I've been visiting GKI on and off since the 1980s. It's an absolutely beautiful island. The closed resort is a sad sight but on the other hand I much prefer the tranquility of less people being around. (The remainder of the accomodation and the Hideaway is open). We stayed at the Village over 10 years ago with friends and had... More

My husband and I had a fantastic time staying at the Great Keppel Holiday Village. Geoff,the owner is a wonderful guy. He was always making sure that everyone was well taken care of. He is very accommodating and found us a different tent to stay in when we wanted to extend our stay from 2 nights to 5. We did... More

I have just returned from another idyllic trip to Holiday Village. I am a solo traveller and a local. I always stay in the tents and like the convenience of electricity , clean linens and a deck of my own to make my experience more comfortable. After all it's still camping, or so I like to tell myself. The company... More

This is a wonderful destination if you are looking for a peaceful, laid-back, idyllic island getaway. There is no TV or radio to detract from the island experience, something that I found refreshing! That being said, you still have access to internet if you feel you still need to use it. We were greeted by Geoff who was very warm... More

I get why the recomments are good, if you are a paying guest you are treated really nicely. We got here to do work for accomodation and were put in an old, dirty tent with two ants nests in it. At night it rained through the tent roof really bad and all our stuff got wet, eventhough the beds. we... More

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
