'WOW! 'Where else but Queensland'...now I know where they get the saying from :) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mornington. The house was so comfortable, everything needed for a great stay was provided, from washing detergent to pool toys for the kids! Tim and Wendy thought of everything!

We wanted to let Tim & Wendy know how much we enjoyed our stay - the house was well equipped & spotless and only a stone's throw from the fabulous beach but what made our holiday was the attention we received from our hosts. They helped us book our trip to the reef ( a must for any visitor to... more
