I was overwhelmed by the beauty when I first entered the Keswick Island Guest House and never lost my appreciation of the stunning vista from the balcony for my whole time there. The ambience, the warmth and grace of our hosts, the passion behind the food, my first taste of bug tails, every morsel savoured. There is so much natural... More

I can't recommend Brian & Lyn's hospitality high enough. The rooms are beautiful & the food was 5-star & delicious. Waking up to the amazing views everyday was also a highlight and we can't wait to visit again!

We arrived with simple expectations, and were incredibly happy with the location, the facilities and our hosts Brian and Lyn. The food was awesome even though we failed to mention our dislike for certain foods, Lyn still provided amazing meals out of thin air to meet our expectations. The Island is very quiet yet full of wildlife which can be... More

The spectacular location, luxurious accommodation, gourmet food or warm hospitality: anyone of these make a stay at Keswick Island Guest House a wonderful experience, but when you put them all together, you have the most fantastic holiday. We can’t wait to visit again.

We are return visitors to Keswick Island Guesthouse and we were eager to see if the place was the same as we remembered it from the last time we visited. Needless to say we were not disappointed at all. The same breathtaking views and gentle sea breezes flowing through the house made for a very relaxing weekend. Brian and Lyn... More

On a whim, decided on a getaway weekend at the Keswick Island Guest House. Took a short 12 minute flight from mainland Mackay, Qld to the stunning Keswick Island, and were greeted by our delightful hosts Brian and Lyn Kinderman. Stepping onto the island guest home deck, we were gobsmacked by uninterrupted views over islands in the Whitsundays and the... More

We've enjoyed every minute of our stay at the Keswick Island Guesthouse! Great nature, lovely, large and comfortable rooms and, most of all, great hosts. Great company, great food, great wine. Overall, a very indulging experience, well worth travelling across the world for.

We spent 4 wonderful days here in Nov 2013. Cannot speak highly enough of the way Brian and Lyn looked after us. All meals were fantastic, room was perfect and the walks and beaches were so natural and unspoilt. A truly wonderful experience.
