My boyfriend and I travelled to Great Keppel Island and stayed at Svendsens Beach in January, and even before we got there we knew it was going to be a special trip! We were impressed with the speed and detail of Lyndie and Carl's response to our booking inquiry. They explained to us everything from how to get there and... More

If you are considering going here... More

Svendsens beach is an amazing hidden gem on the beautiful Keppel Island. The little bungalow we stayed in was amazing, feeling one with nature just a 30 second walk to the beach. Breathtaking sunsets and beautiful ocean views everyday! Karl and Lyndie are awesome and very accommodating! Lyndie took me on a snorkel through the blow hole to the cave,... More

Svendsens Beach is away from the other accommodation on Great Keppel, with some beautiful unspoilt beaches to walk to and snorkel on, great hikes and a hugely relaxing atmosphere. I visited in April 2013 and it was a highlight of our trip to Australia. Lyndie and Carl were really helpful and welcoming. They clearly love their home and the surrounding... More

Lyndie has created a perfect island getaway. The pristine beach with its breathtaking sunsets make for magic moments. Lyndies personal touches such as hand carved wooden signs and her artistic flair give you a sense of how well loved this island is. Each path and track has been detailed on her hand drawn map of the island. The beach kitchen... More

Quiet, lovely place. Lyndie has added lots of personal touches everywhere. The rooms are so nice and clean. The walks also have that personal touch with the paths dotted with notes and such. And, I loved the camp shower! The kitchen is fully equipped and very efficient. Loved our time there and have already scheduled a return trip in January... More

Svendsens Beach is just amazing. I visited by myself in October 13 and found exactly what I was looking for - a quiet absolutely picturesque and unspoilt part of our beautiful country (friends wanted me to go to Bali, but I resisted and chose this place instead and aren't I pleased that I did!). The retreat is so well set... More

Visited this perfect spot and stayed three days in the most idyllic camp. Carl and Lyndi couldn't have been more accommodating . Deserted beaches and crystal clear water. Self catering was the option we chose and we had the camp almost to ourselves. Lots of walks, fishing, snorkelling, and lying around! Will be coming back.

This beautiful beach retreat is remote from other developments on Great Keppel, surrounded by natural bush and forest and nestled into artistic gardens alive with birds. The safari tent accommodation is very comfortable, with a romantic bush shower along the path. The open kitchen looks straight out to the beach and bay, well equipped and most convivial. Great walking tracks... More

This was one of the best places my boyfriend and I have ever visited. We have travelled a lot all over the world and I have to say that that Svendsens was paradise. Lindie and Carl our hosts were perfect and have the most beautiful home. They live on the other side of Keppel island to anyone so we did... More
