The excellent service, quiet area and lovely clean well serviced rooms. Tumby Bay is very central to alot of towns on the lower Eyre Peninsula and it is nice to come back to the cabin at night to just relax in such quiet surroundings and still hear the sound of the sea.

I am happy to give a glowing recommendation. My reason for the trip was to indulge my passion of fishing, and to see family and friends. I spent most of my time at Second Creek just south of Tumby Bay. Returning to the apartment to a hot shower and cooking fresh fish made for a great day. Having a laundry... More

Second creek is such an interesting place. Great fishing and an important fish breeding habitat. Glad you had a great time. More

The room we had was smaller than we expected but that was due to a communication error. Modra's management were accommodating. The facilities were good. The fish cleaning area was very handy. Although there were other people in the apartments we were not disturbed by them. Very quiet area. The rooms were very clean when we arrived which was good.... More

Thanks for your understanding. I wish we had one of our more suitable two bedroom apartments available to upgrade you. That would have solved the space issue but not the snoring. More

The people at Modra's Apartments have really put a lot of thought into providing this quality of accomodation. The apartment was spacious, clean, quiet. Everything was provided, even filtered rain water, the same as we have at home. There was even provision for fish cleaning, and a good Bar-B-Q area. The service was excellent, even providing local T.V. guide, tide... More

Glad you noticed the small things. We think giving our guests a local TV guide, the tide times and weather for next few days is important too. More

Cleaning the fish can be such a hard task at the end of an enjoyable day. We like to help if we can. More

This place is a top place to stay. If you really want to get away from the hustle and bustle this is where to go. The owner/operators are very friendly and accomodating. We had our caravan with us to do extended travel and they happily placed our van near our unit. The apartment we had, had all the necessities for... More

we had a great time. the friendly service was exceptional. there was everything you needed (even plenty of towels), the bed was great, the room spotlessly clean. modra's have renovated well and the units give your stay a welcome feel. well done guys, we will return as soon as I drag my hubby away from work. he loved the fishing!

take lots of reading material and your fishing gear,everything else is provided, cabins were spotless with every thing you need for a great relaxing break, high lights were feeding the pelicans and just strolling around the town talking to the friendly locals, the beach would provide good safe swimming for the kids in warmer weather,. both hotels and the beach...

We first stayed in 2009 and liked it enough to return the following year by which time the already clean and well-maintained accommodation had been refurbished. Lovely big bathroom, washing machine and tumble dryer with outside sitting space in lovely Tumby Bay. Highly recommended.

The slice in the 'frig. is a nice touch. the only downside was the lounge; not very comfortable, and hard to get out of when one is getting on in years,... More
