“Wonderful Relaxing Family Holiday ”
Reviewed December 25, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

I can’t say enough how much we are enjoying our stay at Blue Haven. My husband and I and two teenage girls ran away from Christmas in Melbourne and are staying here for 11 days over the Christmas period. We absolutely love the house as it has everything you could possibly need. We cooked a Christmas dinner yesterday and the kitchen had every utensil and appliance needed.

The pool is beautiful and clean and the shade cloth over it makes it possible to use at all times of the day.

The house layout is set in an “L” shape around the pool with all bedrooms, laundry and the main room leading directly outside onto a large deck. The deck has a table perfect for outside living and eating. All bedrooms and the main room have excellent working air conditioning.

The house is very clean and has been well maintained. Also the tropical garden is well cared for and a delight to sit in.

The house is about a 10 minute walk from the small shopping strip at Horseshoe Bay. This short walk can get pretty hot at this time of the year but does have shade most of the way. We felt the location was very good.

Although we had the bulk of our food delivered to us by Woolworths in Townsville (they deliver on Tuesday & Thursday), there is a small convenience store on the beachfront that has anything you might be inclined to forget.

We also love the little extra touches like Christmas decorations at this time of year and a linen delivery service a few days into our stay.

We haven’t swam at the beach much due to the risk of stingers at this time of the year (despite there being stinger nets on the beach) however have noticed that many people don’t seem to worry and swim anyway. As we have such a beautiful pool this hasn’t been a problem for us.

This has been a very relaxing family holiday and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.

We stayed in this property in early October 2015. Fabulous!!! The residence has a lovely layout with many additional touches we weren't expecting. A selection of DVDs to suit all tastes, CDs to suit all tastes, books....just little touches that made you glad to unwind. We had 2 teenage children (17 & 14) and they had plenty of personal space as well. The pool is well appointed with a sail shade overhead, and not too deep to scare anyone. Everything was modern, and there was plenty of everything. We chose to eat in and transport sandwiches and leftovers most days, and there was plenty of containers to accommodate us. The wildlife was abundant, with lorikeets, kookaburras, possums and a wallaby visiting each night. We didn't feed them except for a small bit of overripe fruit on day. (The animals were obviously used to getting scraps.) The walk to Horseshoe Bay is 10 mins, which made it a lovely time to talk and relax. There is a big dog in a neighboring property, but it was no issue. It barked a couple of times, but not enough to unsettle us.
Overall, a lovely place to stay and a well appointed home, in a great location. You won't be disappointed.
