A very brief over night stay sadly as we were running out of time on a road trip in Queensland. So sorry not to have been staying longer! Facilities great. Room really spacious and clean with everything that we needed. Owner very helpful and informative. Would definitely recommend.

We booked a fraser island package with on in the Emeraldene. Rob was excellent! he was so helpful & arranged everything for us. He even arranged for a car service to get us to the 4WD briefing in time when our plane only landed 20 mins before the briefing started. I would definately recommend Emeraldene & the setting is lovely.... More

We stayed a couple of nights and had a pleasant experience. Rob is a knowledgable host and can give a lot of suggestions. The apartment can be a bit dark (in winter) and the WiFi did not work for four days when we were there. The kids liked the bunk beds; our mattress was not so great. But overall it... More

We booked a room with Rob, the owner, in the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. He was efficient with our booking and arranged all transfers for us. Rob greeted us and took time to show us around and gave us all the information we needed even though we were only staying for the night. He was extremely friendly and... More

We decided to use Rob and the Emeraldene lodge as our base for side trips to Lady Elliott and Fraser Island. Rob was able to set up everything for us, and even allowed us to keep our luggage in the room when we stayed overnight at Lady Elliott and Fraser Island. Rob also gave us the names of great places...

We were arriving very late as we flew from Tasmania to Brisbane and drove to Hervey Bay. The package was all ready for us as we checked in at 10:30 pm or so. The units are spotless, the view is great and for Australia it is practically a bargain. You can see that the owners really care as to how... More

My elderly mother and I stayed for one night a couple of weeks ago. We were greeted by a delightful host who promptly upgraded us. This was much appreciated. The room we were given (no. 7) had a lovely outside area where my mother enjoyed having her coffee. The room had a queen bed and a single bed which was... More

A one night stay here, arrived late and left early, but it was clean and comfortable with nice vegetation outside. It is about 3km to the waterfront. The owner was very helpful when we arrived, pointing us towards the shopping mall to find some food, but his best tip was Enzo's for breakfast (which I will review separately).

Hi Nick, Thanks for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Not only do we have 3 of the best natural attractions on the east coast here in Hervey Bay, but we also have some amazing little eateries to enjoy, so I hope you get the opportunity to spend a little longer with us next time!...

You can't go wrong with a stay here. Such a unique property surrounded by beautiful lush greenery and gardens. The owner was first class really taking his time to show us places to go in the area and you could tell he takes great pride living here. Skip the $$$$ resorts and stay here. You won't regret it.
