Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Was very happy with the standard of cleanliness, it was nice and quiet and not far from beach, town/shops or airport. Had everything that you needed to make the stay comfortable. Tamara (owner) was very accommodating with my requests (needed extra pillows and my daughters bedside lamp had blown the globe, and these were promptly attended to:). I stayed there with my husband and daughter (over from WA), for a 40th birthday party, and went up to Airlie for a night....fantastic, and toured through some lovely areas including rainforests and platypus pools!
Will definitely stay here again!
