This Park is fantastic for a number of reasons. It is located close to both the beach and the main shops/restaurants. Once you have parked your car and unpacked, you can relax and walk everywhere. The accommodation is clean and modern, the park is immaculate and has great facilities. The staff are brilliant. They are both approachable and friendly. We... More

We love that you enjoy the location, that our park is clean, and friendly. All of these things are very important to us. But what we love most is the wonderful guests who stay with us. Short stays or annual holidays, we are attracting such a nice group of repeat guests. And we are proud as punch. Thank you. More

Thank you so much for your kind review. You are one of our first guests since our renovations. We closed for the month of August, to renovate, paint, and revitalise our little unique place on the island. All our rooms now have split systems, new painting, flooring. New furniture in the family villas, and bigger decks. Our new outdoor kitchen... More

We stayed in one of the Villas overnight (7/7-8/7/2014) and couldn't be happier with the accommodation. The units were extremely clean, spacious, very warm and cosy. Loved how close we were to main street. Well within walking distance. The staff were very welcoming, pleasant and friendly and approachable if extra blankets etc. were required. This was our first stay at... More

A Bit Small We recently stayed here in a Villa for 4 people at a cost of $100- per night. The location was great and the staff were welcoming and helpful. The villa was clean and tidy. Unfortunately, we found the villa quite small in some aspects. I am not sure how four people would use this space comfortably. There... More

Thank you very much for your constructive criticism. The villa for 4 is small but competitive for $100 per night. I am so glad you found the villa clean, and the staff friendly. We are currently doing upgrades to the villas, closing in august for 4 weeks. And we hear what you are saying, and hope to address most of... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights. We were most impressed by the excellent customer service of the staff and the close proximity to restaurants, shops and the beach. The rooms are comfortable, warm and inviting. There is free wifi and cooking facilities. Everything was perfect. We will definitely be back! Thanks for an awesome stay.

The hosts are extremely nice and the place has great hospitality. Traveling all day and visiting the island this was a very convenient location and they were very accommodating. Over the Easter weekend they had nice events to keep the people staying very comfortable. The price is not bad for what you get either.

my wife and I have been travelling around Australia for many years now, this is the best park we have ever stayed in in terms of service, locality, price and amenities.

Stayed here with husband, our two kids, my sister and nephew. The cabin accommodation was a little squashed with so many, but it was clean and reasonably priced and really, the kids were outside riding their bikes around the quiet park the whole time (we could let even the 3-year-old roam as it is such a lovely little park) so...
