Me and my siblings sent my parents to French Island for a Christmas present - what do you get people who have everything they need or want? I thought it could go either way, a shambles or a great fun trip. I was encouraged by the reviews which all said Phil was very helpful. My parents absolutely loved it, and also came back raving about Phil as being a genuine guy who was very helpful and accommodating. For example, the ferry to get there was late, and Phil rang to let my parents know that, so they weren't just standing at the end of the jetty for an hour; instead they went and had a coffee. The accommodation was not flashy obviously but importantly clean. My parents had a great time and I highly recommend you go to French Island and when you do, stay with Phil at the eco inn.
