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 for one night. We found it be very comfortable and clean. It wasnt the cheapest but was spacious and convenient. Its quite close to the sea shore, reastaurant across the road and just a short walk to a nice rain forest walk to a water fall.But we still didnt find any abalone:(

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

Stayed here for 3 days. Very relaxing experience. The unit was cosy, very clean and peaceful. Great touches such as flowers, good hairdryer; nice hot shower post mountain biking. Easy walk to the shops and nice scenic spot.

Spend 2 nights in a self contained studio and cannot fault it. Well equipped with a lovely verandra with glimpses of the cove through the trees. We were cosy and warm having to turn the heating off every now and end as it was so efficient. Would recommend this complex to anyone.

Stayed in 'Kelly' cottage for a couple of nights in October. We liked it as soon as we saw it; it felt like home. Spotlessly clean, very spacious, good heating (a 'must' in this area), a firm but comfortable bed (we slept well), a comfortable cloth fabric lounge suite (I don't like cold leather seats), good shower, separate toilet.
