We arrived late evening an were pleasantly surprised that the friendly owner waited up for us and offered a fully stocked kiosk to purchase from. I had assumed we would arrive to find a key left out and an empty fridge so I had carted some basic breakfast things in my suitcase - no need.
The value for money was great - well equipped bungalow, next to a massive pool, games room, tennis court, kids art club open every day. Opposite the beach. Laundry facilities. All great. It is a leisure park though and like most of these places you need to be OK about having other people's kids running around and making noise in the early hours which can wake you up. There is a fantastic mexican restaurant accross the road, also a foodworks supermraket, chemist, bottle shop and cafe 4 minute walk. The supermarket charges like a wounded bull. Go to the IGA 15 minutes walk away - it is cheaper.
I loved the curlews and lorrikeets.
Magnetic Island is such a lovely laidback place.
