Damian & Kristy, Norm & Jenny, are amazing hosts at the Modra's Apartments, with nothing too much for them. The units are meticulously clean with amenities that are unbelievable. Imagine having your own clothes washer & tumble dryer & not having to pay extra. The units are superbly equipped & the grounds are almost tropical with a wonderful array of... More

We stayed at Modra's apartment some years ago and found it to be the same excellent place again. Our apartment was very spacious and the upgraded bathroom was great with lots of room. The surrounding gardens are well kept with excellent fish cleaning facilities. We received a very warm welcome from the owners and tried everything to make our stay... More

Always love staying here, although dated the apartments are always clean and comfortable. The beds have great mattresses and the electric blanket is perfect for those cold winter nights. If you don't feel like cooking for yourself The Tumby Bay hotel is just up the road and as usual high quality food, my wife loves the seafood platter. Note there... More

Thanks Andy. I appreciate you taking the time to give a review. I am biased of course but we certainly try hard to make them the most comfortable, cleanest "retro" apartments available. More

Another great trip to Tumby Bay. We stayed at Modra's Apartments like we always do. The Modra family always welcome us as friends each time & yes Damion helped clean the fish again. Their units are always clean & tidy with every think in them you would need. The units are like a home away from home. Modra's location is... More

My wife and I have stayed here on our annual holiday for the last four years. We have extended our stay each time as Tumby bay is a fantastic spot and the accomodation at Modras is fantastic. They are clean, roomy and within walking distance to both the beach and services in town. Have already booked for 2017! Can't wait..

A nice clean spacious room with full size fridge, bathroom with washer dryer in a quiet location - what more could you want? Although the owner has earmarked the site for a retirement village (lucky folks!) it's business as usual for 2016 as I understand. The appartments are in easy walking distance to the township pubs and jetty. A lovely... More

On a work visit to Eyre Peninsula based myself at Tumby Bay, staying in a studio at Modra's Apartments. Simple, clean, well appointed and close to the beach for evening walks, and no shared walls with other units!

These apartments are very clean and tidy. If you have a boat, the marina is right next to the apartments. I have been to every town on the Peninsula and in my opinion Tumby is the pick of them all. Cant wait yo go back there early next year before it is turned into a Retirement Village.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment which had absolutely everything you could ask for. The beds were comfy and had extra pillows and rugs. The bathroom had a washing machine and dryer with your own clothes line out back. All linen was included so no need to bring, towels, sheets, etc. all cleaning products and tea towels are also included.... More

What a great place to stay for a week. The owners are fantastic people, typical friendly, grateful, and happy country people and nothing is a worry to them. The apartments are spotlessly clean inside and out with all the gear you need for a great spot to stay when in "Tumby" The grounds are also spotlessly clean, I don't think... More
