Located in the leafy outskirts of Nelly Bay and on the bus route, Oskars is a great hideaway for a couple. The room, bathroom and verandah are spacious, airy, comfortably and practically furnished. Just fly screens between the room and the outside was great for September weather. Gorgeous rainforest and mountain outlook from the verandah that includes outdoor dining and... More

Great large room with very thing you would want supplied. Beautiful large open deck to relax and enjoy. Lovely tropical garden to enjoy all the beautiful birds. We were very well looked after and right advice given on the best spots to explore on the island. A little piece of paradise.

Best wildlife is the rare stone chested curlew, which choruses into the night from the forest and grassland across the creek - in front of the balcony. This is my... More

Beautiful place, excellent views to the rainforest, amazing sounds of the birds, even at night. Cozy room, lovely terrace, but only two warns. If you travel there in winter, must be prepared, there isn't glasses at the windows and only a thin blanket, and the second, lock the door of the terrace (it was broken) or block it with a... More

We spent such a great week in this Bed & Breakfast! You are in good hands and well advised to discover the Island! You can have a nice breakfast with the rainforest just in front while you get to see colourful birds and sometimes even wallabies! It's clean and really beautiful furnished! We can totally recommend this accommodation on Magnetic... More
