“Great place to stay on Magnetic Island!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Very nice condo equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed having the well equipped kitchen and the the outdoor grilling area to prepare our own meals of local produce and fish. Horseshoe Bay is a great place to stay on the island and Sails on Horseshoe was perfect for our needs. Lorakeets visited our balcony every morning and the quiet beach was a stroll across the street.

Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

After a challenging process to checkin with a slightly confusing website and a false start when we arrived having being placed in the wrong room, everything went up from there.

The room itself we stayed in with my wife, our one year old and parents in law was probably the flagship room of the premises. It was a two bedroom apartment on the second floor directly opposite the beach. Amenities were basic but well maintained, only draw back being soap from the last guest still in the bath, underpants in the dryer and many trails of ants in the kitchen.

The one thing we could not get enough of was relaxing on the balcony overlooking that cracking beach. Blue sky every morning for 4 mornings didn't grow old at all!

The pool did the job. It was warm and maintained and the jets you can turn on helped the aching muscles.

Would definitely rate the place to go back. The property could do with some updating soon but I think that's part of the charm compared to the apparent 5 star properties at Nelly.

My one call out would be crank up the cleaning and spend a couple of $ on the website and it would make a big difference.
