I highly recommand this place...spend four nights in total and really enjoyed my time there. Jude and Bryan are very welcoming and make you feel a part of the family. Loved the afternoon that I watched a dvd with Jude and abolutely appreciated it that Jude gave me a lift to the busstation :-)
It is a bit out of the centre but that's actually a part of it's charm. There is an amazing boardwalk to the centre and a big mall is within 10 minutes walking distance. Overall BRILLIANT!

After my wife and I had sailed for a few days we wanted to find a nice reasonably priced hotel in the area, and Bush village offered exactly that. We didn't realise but we were there during the start of summer break and were impressed at how quiet the cabins were even when facing the crocodile hotel. The hotel is in very close proximity to a Coles and a few restaurants. If you don't have a vehicle don't worry you can catch the bi-centenial walkway across the street and walk into town along the coast (about 30mins). Will definately return if we are ever in the area again.

We arrived here after searching for reasonably priced accommodation in the Airlie beach busy bustling area! We were welcomed by Brian, Judy & the dogs with open arms. We initially planned to stay here for a few days but it ended up being two weeks! Spacious bungalows with kitchens and en-suites (luxury compared to the usual ten bed dorm!) we had the bungalow to ourselves. There was a small pool for a dip on hot days and a sitting room with tables, a T.V. and a drinks fridge. The bungalows were spotless and you couldn't of wished for better hosts. Brian and Judy helped us as much as they could even taking us to the ferry port on our departure. An excellent place for backpackers and families alike! Will definitely visit again on our next trip to Oz!

Thank you. Hope you had a good flight home. Unfortunately we do not have a courtersy bus but hey we might win the lotto. Yes, it is a nice place just to hang around & chill. Everything is downtown Airlie if you want it. It is great to get reviews like yours so we see if we are moving in the right direction. As Bryan says " Rome was not built in a day " and we will keep on improving.
We meet so many wonderful people from all over the world and you guys are two of them.

The best rest stop on our road trip to Cairns. A lovely location just outside Airlie Beach, only 5 minutes walking from the local shops. We stayed in a king deluxe cabin, which was clean and bright. Loved the "queenslander' effect from the louvred walls, the rain shower and the private hammock. The communal kitchen was well supplied and we made use of the BBQ by the pool. For those seeking a break from the road, and a quiet location just to chill for a while, this place is a great choice.

My boyfriend and I (both in early 30s) stayed in the Bush Village for 4 nights in December 2012, and we really enjoyed our stay there. The cabin had a kitchen and absolutely everything needed for cooking, it was very clean, modest but bright and cozy. It also had a private little terrace with a table so we enjoyed our dinner and breakfasts outdoors. Amenities included swimming pool, hot tub, grill, laundry facilities, which we found very useful as well. Brian, the owner, was very helpful with all our questions and requests. The only negative I can think of is that its quite remote from Arlie beach center. Its about 30 min walk, so make sure you grab everything you need in the morning when heading to the Lagoon or Abel point, or you would soon start hating the scenic boardwalk along the waterfront that seems to go on forever and ever. We ended up renting a scooter in Arlie, and that was very helpful as it was only 5 min ride to all the activities. So overall, great for couples and families, quiet, clean, comfortable and budget friendly.

Thank you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It is a beautiful walk into town and you do get your exercise. It is just far enough from town to get the peace & quiet & close enough to enjoy all it has to offer.

Couldn't be better! Beautiful clean modern cabins with all modcons with lovely hosts. Only downfall is distance from town but it is a lively 30mins walk by the marina to town.

To be honest the idea of staying in a cabin in the middle of summer in a sub tropical climate was a little worrying on entering airlie beach, especially when getting the taxi to the accommodation, the taxi man tells you...you get what you pay for. However, thankfully he was wrong, you can get comfortable accommodation on a budget! I might even say that the cabins where better than some hotels we stayed in Australia.

Would definately reccommend Bush Cabins!

Thank you. We are not the most modern accommodation but we are the cleanist. and we working on improving our facilities. As Bryan says " Rome was not built in a day " The board walk into town is stunning and most people would not walk it if they stayed right in town.
