Lovely little place away from everything (while right next to everything) wonderful service and cheap as chips!! I have stayed here 5 times now and will not stay anywhere else in Bowen ever again. Caught some really nice fish 20m from my room.

The photos make this place look pleasant and its beachside location is good. However, the units themselves are dated, run-down, badly managed and not maintained. We arrived late and needed to wait quite a while for someone to arrive with a key. The room itself was in urgent need of a makeover and not entirely clean, although at least the... More

This is a poorly run establishment. The unit itself was in less than average condition, cracked and loose tiles on the floor, broken light shades, air con on its last legs and the rubber door seal completely came off when opening the shower door. I also had to park a fair distance from the room and drag my bag through... More

After a long drive we were excited to arrive, though very disappointed in the room, small, dark, musky smelling and very dated - a coat of paint would change the mood there quickly. First thing I requested - password for the WiFi - nope, don't have it! Then we thought we'd have dinner in the restaurant - no don't have... More

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.
