We have been staying at these units for quite a few years in our way north to the Sunshine Coast. Management are always very pleasant and helpful. Units very clean and well furnished. We have recommended these Villas to friends who were equally impressed.

We found the cabins to be spacious and reasonably clean ---just a little wear n tear that comes with age. The master bed room had plenty of room and a comfy bed. The second room had 2 single beds, but was a little crowded for 2 adults --no bed side tables at all. The bathroom was a reasonable size with... More

We needed something 2 bedroom so our 21 month old could sleep in a separate room for an overnight stay. My husband had stayed here before for a work trip so we decided to return. Surprising spacious living area with kitchenette which has everything except for an oven - but has an electric frypan, microwave & hot plates if needing... More

I didn't realise it was school holidays and had a few problems finding a place to stay. Settled here and it was a comfortable 2 bedroom unit that was self contained, clean and tidy. Jeanette was friendly and helpful and freely offered suggestions to dine and also local nearby sights to see. I enjoyed my stay

Stayed here for 2 nights with 2 children. Centrally located but quiet with a short walk to the beach. Cabins are very large, beds are comfy.Good kitchen to cook in to save those extra dollars. Graham the owner is very friendly and nothing is a problem. The pool and spa looked good but a bit cold for this time of... More

We had two nights and dolphin sands villas, the villas were clean and well presented will all necessary facilities. Within walking distance of the beach and pub and an easy drive to the harbour and other facilities. If you are a drop in be aware that there is no onsite manager, staff when they arrived were friendly and helpful.

Will definately be back. Great value. Only a short stroll to the surf club, bowling club and Hoey Moey's. Relaxed spacious cottage atmosphere, with aircon, verandah, full sized kitchen and Austar. Much more than a sparce cabin. Second room would benefit from ceiling fan, but pedestal fan provided sufficed.

We stayed here with two kids for 3 nights and were wishing we'd booked a few more nights. The cabins are very clean, comfortable and have ample space. There are only 7 villas in the complex making it a quiet place to stay. The location is great - walking distance to the beach and quite a few good eating places.... More

Janette and Graham who manage this establishment couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Upon arrival Janette give us maps, tourist information with suggestions on where to go for meals and attractions to see. The cabins would have to be the most spacious and well appointed we've ever stayed in (and we've stayed in many over the years) and spotlessly clean.... More
