Me and my two boys 8 and 9 stayed here very sadly for 3 nights, it should have been much longer. Amber and Michael who own and run this resort are the friendliest and most helpful people going, once again if you get an idiot behind something your experiences won't be that great, but these guys made it for us...

The room smelt like dead fish... But at least it has 'Free Internet'... searched the room for access codes... none. When inquired about internet access at the office - was informed that the Wifi is limited as there is only a single 'Dongle' servicing the entire property. Was eventually handed the access codes (reluctantly) with the warning that I had... More

Well, what can say? The accommodation is excellent! For me, it's all about space, simplicity and service. Amber and Micheal and genuine host, warm, friendly and engaging. The kitchenette and the outside balcony perfect for me because I do like option to cook and entertain my clients while I'm in town. Although, I do talk a bit, so thank you... More

Very comfortable room which was nice and clean. We only stayed one night and left early the next day to get to lady elliot island. WiFi was not working from our room.. Had to go down to the car park to use the WiFi.

The best part about staying here was Amber and Michael, the very helpful and easy to get along with resort managers. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They were always out and about and on-hand to answer queries, help with day trips and give advise. The resort was very well maintained and the units provided good value accomodation. I... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this little resort at the southern end of Hervey Bay. Perfectly positioned in a quiet leafy spot - but just down the road from some great restaurants and cafe's I can happily recommend a stay at Boat Harbour Resort. Our Villa was clean and tidy - with a well set up kitchen and full size... More
