We stayed for 5 nights. The accommodation is excellent. Very clean with lovely grounds. The management are so friendly. The place is close to the marina and ferries. Also close to bus stop and the staff arranged bus tours and rental motes. There is a small shop and close to mini supermarket.

Eileen, who is the owner, offered us a warm welcome when we arrived on a rainy Friday night. The room was clean and had all basic amenities including a kitchen area. The resort has a pool, games room, tennis court, and bbq area. Easy to get to by bus (to picnic bay) from ferry terminal. Highly recommend as a base... More

The perfect place to wind down and enjoy the sunshine. The most beautiful gardens surround the villas which are very comfortable. Wonderful hosts who are always willing to help and advise you on the best deals on the island. An enjoyable stay.

Came on a relaxing family holiday so that we could relax by a lagoon style pool and if we want to go out in adventures we could. We have found the staff friendly and helpful and it's great to sit by the pool and sip wine and have a BBQ. The free wii Fii is ok but can't access everything... More

Lovely resort run by friendly helpful people. The room was clean and spacious. Bathroom very big. Loved the pool area - lagoon style complete with a very lifelike croc at water's edge!! Games room with pool table and table tennis. 5 minutes drive from the ferry at Nelly Bay.

Great location near shops, cafes with bus stop nearby for travel to ferry terminal and various bays around the island. The self contained bure accommodation is top class with outlook to attractive gardens. No stairs to climb an advantage. The pool and surrounds were marvellous for cooling off and relaxing between trips out. We will definitely stay here on our... More

Just a 10-15 minute walk from the ferry terminal (or short bus ride) plus several shops and restaurants nearby this is a great location on this lovely island. We arrived on the 11am ferry and were pleasantly surprised when we were given the keys to our room straight away, much appreciated after walking in the hot sun! We sunbathed and... More

Best place in magnetic island. I stayed there with my family and had a really good time. Definitely coming back next time I visit Townsville. The island itself is Magic. I really enjoyed the swimming pool. It is week located next to the Nelly beach!
