We had the house and it is, as promoted, most comfortable, spacious, clean, and within easy distance of central Strahan. The personal touches by Megs are noteworthy and add to the experience. The promise of (free) Wi-Fi however was not met. We were told when checking in that there were "problems" and it is only available in the laundry or... More

we were greeted by Meg the owner warmly at the reception, she gave us lots of useful tips on where to go for meals and best timing for meals etc. The time of the year when we visited Strahan was not peak season or school holiday but surprisingly everywhere was really busy and most of restaurants were booked out.

The Crays has 2 sites, one waterside & the other back on the hill. Kelly Cottage is located on the hill. The 2-room cottage is quiet, clean, well equipped & comfortable. A second bathroom would be an advantage for couples sharing. Highlight of the Strahan visit was Geoff's amazing sea-plane ride up the Gordon River

We loved visiting Strahan. This accommodation is clean and comfortable but lacks the character that many of the places have created here. The kitchen is well equipped and the washing machine is free. Dryer is coin operated. Previously we've been staying at B&Bs so we missed the personal touches that they offer.

Four of us rented for three nights a soacious dwelling with three bedrooms, one bathroom and separate toilet, combined lounge dining area, small outdoor area and carport with an undercover clothes line. We found it well located - able to walk to the attractions and restaurants and comfortable enough although the decor may not have been to our taste (mainly... More

What a small world, Meg the owner came from the same town as one of us....a lovely surprise. Very clean and comfortable lodging, beautiful views from veranda. Very peaceful and you didn't notice the other guests. Laundry facitilies were a bonus and BBQ too. Reasonable rates too. Easy walking distance to town or call the local taxi service if the... More

We stayed here before going on the yacht up the Gordon River, which is run the same outfit (and is GREAT). The accommodation is clean, comfortable and close to the centre of Strahan. With so many options to choose from, it was good to find one we could trust. As we were only staying one night we didnt need the... More

The Crays are a group of about 4 or 6 "self-contained" cottages. They are clean and spacious and quaint – I think my 82 year old mum did the décore, but heh, Strahan is not downtown New York [or Melbourne]. In terms of cooking facilities and fridge, it is minimalist, but that was not a worry to my wife and... More

It's all been said before - cannot fault the location, the setup & the general ambiance. From the very 1st meeting with Meg - a lovely character, through to our departure 3 days later it was a very enjoyable & relaxing experience. The unit was cosy, very clean & the little touches were delightful. Anyone even contemplating visiting Strahan should... More
