“Everything we needed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Very welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble. The apartment had everything we needed, well provisioned with tea coffee and other basics, clean, comfortable and free wifi. Rooms not large but perfectly adequate. Recommended.

Stayed in numerous motels and lodges during our recent 5 weeks in Australia. This was the best in terms of service, quality of accommodation and value for money. We left a book in our room after we left for Sydney and by the time we got there it had been posted to us at no cost and no fuss. Thank you!

Stayed here for one night in October to do a day trip to Fraser Island. The location isn't the best but there are a few shops ect within walking distance. The rooms were great and service excellent. Swimming pool and surrounding area lovely. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a relaxing break.

This was an excellent choice for our stay in Hervey Bay.

Well appointed roomy clean chalet with good quality furniture and fittings.
Ample cooking utensils and dishes etc.

Family run by mother and two sons who were very helpful and have a first class establishment.

Great laundry with outside line. Washing machine costs $2 per load.

close to the sea front but yet in a quiet street with off street parking close to chalet.

would highly recommend this place and would stay again.

I would happily stay here for more than a night. The accommodation was all self sufficient (own kitchen and bathroom) and really spacious. We used this place as a stop between Hervey bay and Bundaberg. Excellent decision, would highly recommend this place.

This place is just perfect. We had such a fab 2 nights stay. Location is brilliant right round the corner to the beach and all the shops and places to eat on Hervey Bay. We even had our tour booked with Fraser Explorer Tours for 2 days and it was all so well organised and just perfect! Free Wi-Fi, pool, great service and great location!

Would totally recommend this place to anyone :-)
