Oskars is a wonderful place to enjoy the fantastic garden view and the wonderful native birds and animals. We were given the best advice of where to visit on the island, the hosts were friendly but not intrusive. The comfy four poster bed, chocolates and champagne made our stay one to remember. I am so glad we discovered this little...

Every aspect of our stay was excellent from the quality of the accommodation, the welcome and care from our host, the layout of the retreat, the facilities on offer, the bottle of champagne in the fridge and the beauty of the surroundings. We really felt as if we were surrounded by nature from the birds singing in the trees off...

Just fly screens between the room and the outside was great for September weather. Gorgeous rainforest and mountain outlook from the verandah that includes outdoor dining and...

Oskar's Rainforest Retreat is a must for any overseas traveller who visits Magnetic Island, it is unique. It is beautifully furnished, intimate and secluded.

Stayed for two nights at Oskar's last week. Place to go if you like wildlife up close, on the balcony. Parrots, possums ( with baby), feeding out of your hand. Best wildlife is the rare stone chested curlew, which choruses into the night from the forest and grassland across the creek - in front of the balcony. This is my...

Beautiful place, excellent views to the rainforest, amazing sounds of the birds, even at night. Cozy room, lovely terrace, but only two warns. If you travel there in winter, must be prepared, there isn't glasses at the windows and only a thin blanket, and the second, lock the door of the terrace (it was broken) or block it with a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
'A B & B with a view' REFURBISHED Oskar's is the only Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Nelly Bay. Oskar's only caters for 2 people at a time , we do not cater for children. Stay in a tropical architecturally designed large wooden Queenslander. In real terms Oskar's is a very large one bedroom unit with an expansive deck and endless stunning views of the rain forest garden we have created, Gustav Creek and the hills of Nelly Bay as a back drop. Oskar's has its own private entrance, own private verandah, a large bedroom with high cathedral ceilings and its own ensuite. We have combined our love of vintage Australian furniture, historical local original art works and photographs, with a touch of serene Asian influence of beautiful Thai silks. Paintings are all by local artists and reflect the beauty of the island. We offer our guests privacy. Oskar's Rainforest Retreat has some modern appliances like Air conditioning, Fan, TV, micro wave, jug, toaster, fridge. We provide a gourmet continental breakfast of cereals, toast, a platter fresh seasonal fruits, yoghurt and fruit juice with good quality teas and coffee. Guests can make at their own leisure whether it be for breakfast or brunch. We have hotel quality bed linen and towels, Oskar's is cleaned and serviced daily. The owners have lived on Magnetic Island for 26 years and have vast local knowledge of where are the best beaches and bays to visit, how to get there, where are the best walking tracks and the best places to eat. Oskar's provides an intimate timeless setting with an abundance of bird life, the occasional koala and a couple of resident wallabies, all our guests need to do is just relax and enjoy the view. If you like something out of the ordinary and enjoy the charms of a bygone era then Oskar's is for you. Named after the family Shih Tzu, your host Debbie looks forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
