Stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom villa 3rd week in January. Internally, the villas are well equipped, although compact. Outdoor areas are not private as the villa decks face adjoining villa decks, and you can be unlucky with noisey neighbours as we were. The villas are very packed in, and the internal road goes past most villas in the complex.... More

Thank you for your comments I am glad you liked our Beach Houses. Though I was truly disappointed to hear of the issues you encounted which by know means reflect the experience we provide here at Mobys. Please accept my personal appology.

A little gem. The kids went across the road for a surf and we had a wine can not get much better. The villa we stayed in had just been done up 65C with new TVs, air con and furniture. We had a look around and some of the villas need new stuff. The staff were very good and the... More

Moby's was one of those amazing little places that you don't really know much about until you get there. We wanted to get away for the weekend and found the website... I believe they are in the process of revamping their site, but from the look of it we couldn't really tell what we were going to find. We could... More

So, obviously this is my experience, but here goes.... Ive just got home from Mobys and Im still buzzing! We left Central Coast about 5:30 on Firday atfernoon and got to Boomerang Beach about 7:45, a great run, nice and close to home, but far enough away to feel like were somewhere else. We stop in at Huey Blueys to... More

What a beautiful place to stay. The staff their are fantastic and the whole place is like paradise. Why go to Bali or anywhere else when you have boomerang Beach and Blueys. The beach house we stayed in was great with everything we wanted. With a 1 minute walk to the beach you cannot get much better. I have stayed... More

sorry i had to write this unfavourable review but i felt the cost of the rooms was extremely overpriced for what was on offer. First and foremost was my assumption that the room/s would be air conditioned but only some of the privately owned ones are but the staff happily changed us to an air condirioned room at no extra...

Stayed in one of the 3 bedroom apartments at the back of the complex - very nice. Only complaint was that there was no grill. Made use of the pool/spa and had breakfast at the cafe. There is also a tennis court. Good location - short walk to beach. Perfect spot for a lovely weekend, although it's a long drive... More

The rooms were very moden, clean and spacious. The service was amazing, nothing was a trouble, very friendly and professional. The location is perfect, not busy but close enough to things you may need. Child friendly and perfect for a memoriable family holiday.
