Cheap but nice, great bed and quite large unit with great views of the beach through the coconut palms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again. The beach was only 20 meters away and parking was easy.

After a very long drive, we arrived at this place we had booked over the internet, late in the afternoon. We were very tired and willing to sleep almost anywhere. Even so, we couldn't stay there. The unit on the ground floor was very run down and had a dank musty smell. The small kitchenette was awful and the tea... More

The location of this place right in the beach is stunning. Early morning paddle with my girls started the day off beautifully! The room was average. It was quite cheap, clean, had hot water. However it was quite run down and the ceiling is super thin, we woke at 4am while someone was stomping about upstairs. Toilet took ages to... More

Management - It was hard to write this review, because the manager was a really nice person and had a friendly laid back attitude, which is wonderfully typical of Nth Queenslanders. A tip, management are not always on site to greet guests, but they have a system that works and it won't stop you from settling in for the evening.... More

Fantastic location, rooms were clean and tidy and comfortable. Beautiful view and above ground pool was alot of fun with kids (making whirl pools, which you simply cant do in a big pool). Staff were super friendly and made to feel like home.

This is the only time I have booked somwhere without seeing it first and I will never do it again! 10 cockroach baits in the wardrobe, dirty floors and kitchen, mould all over bathroom. Once I saw the state of the room I walked out, and checked into another hotel... Guy was understanding, but being last minute I still had... More

Stayed two nights in a 2 bedroom ocean view unit. Shame there was no supervisor or owner on property. Guests parked their cars in garden not carpark. This place just needs a little extra attention to make it top notch. I would stay again. Second bedroom just a long narrow room, two single beds end to end with no fittings,... More

We stayed here for a week. My husband, myself and 14 year old son. The beach is lovely relaxing entertainment. On the right tide you can see amazing beach side creatures. Walk to the local Chinese restaurant. Is on the local town bus service route. Fishing was also easy to do off the rocks near by and some great walking... More

I have recently stayed at this establishment. The only advise I can offer is that if you are looking for a bare minimum basic accommodation, then you can’t go wrong. Honestly I was surprised at how basic this room was, considering it being such a tourist location. It is functional, but do not expect any creature comforts. I would look... More
