Our family of 5 - 2 adults & 3 children (aged 13,11 & 8) spent a wonderful 3 nights at Cow Bay Homestay.
I booked directly with Marion and she provided us with accurate information before arrival. She welcomed us to her property and gave us a thorough run down of the area and made some very good recommendations, including booking us on a fantastic reef trip with Ocean Safari.
The house with two bedrooms & two bathrooms is clean, spacious open plan and surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden. There are plenty of spots to lounge around feel like you are outdoors & the kids loved the hammock. There was a TV which was important for finals football. Marion would visit each morning at the time we requested and make us a delicious breakfast. Great homemade bread. Marion is a wonderful & interesting host.
The kids also had the freedom to swim in the property’s creek, which was moments from the house.
Cow Bay beach was a 15 minute walk one way.
