Saunders Beach Ocean View Holiday Units
Reviewed January 15, 2014

The highlight of this place is the views, a great sea view from your room onto the wide expanse of beach outside.
The accommodation itself is excellent value, $100 for a contained unit with everything you need inside - aircon was extra but we didn't need it the night we stayed - it was a rare cool evening.
Very friendly and welcoming hosts too.

We have just completed an 18 month run around Australia, and lucky for us we came across the Saunders Beach Ocean View Holiday Units.

We initially booked in for 2 nights and finished up staying for 16 nights. What a great place to stay. They have very clean and well appointed self contained 1 bedroom units with everything you need to have a fully self contained stay. If you do stay longer or run out of something there are major supermarkets only a 15 minute drive to Deeragun if you need to stock up on supplies.

The grounds, gardens, BBQ's and pool are well maintained and the the view is OUTSTANDING.

We are mad keen about fishing and we were not disappointed, we caught enough to feed ourselves daily and even some give aways.

The owners Neville and Lee are great hosts, nothing was a bother and they even delivered yellow passionfruit and lemons most days. They could not do enough for us, time to have a chat and a coffee but mindful of not imposing.

Their kids were great, polite and well mannered and they were happy to talk and join in with what we where doing when we invited them to join.

We could not have had a better time at Saunders Beach Ocean View Holiday Units. Great place to stay and we will be back.

Neville and Lee keep up the good work you have a very unique property and location and the service to match.

Regards
Graham & Kim Dean

Would never recommend this - they advertise air conditioning but do not say you must pay for it thru a coin slot, AND no hot water for the whole night or next day, so no showers !!!- reason hosts gave was "well we do have 15 people staying ", AND to top it off, the owners sons thought it was funny to play football right outside our unit till dark at night, it seems the goal was our wall, and next morning one was hitting a large stick into garden near our unit, while looking to to see if we were watching.

We stayed in a beachfront unit for a week whilst visiting family, the hosts Lee and Nev and their kids are really lovely and make you feel comfortable and the place very homely. The decor is quite dated but for our purposes it was fine, although a little squishy with three kids, next time we would hire two rooms. Lee did ask us if we wanted to move to the bigger unit but we decided not to as it was too much hassle. The best part is undoubtably the beautiful ocean frontage. Walking along the deserted beach and falling asleep listening to the waves was lovely. Townsville is only half an hour away and it's really nice to stay out of town where it's quiet!

Room Tip: Ask for the bigger unit if you need more space
