This is a great find! The bed was comfortable, the shower hot, the location fantastic, and the decor was bright and colorful! What a nice change from sterile hotel rooms. It was within walking distance to the Reef Marina for our diving/snorkeling trips and restaurants, as well as seeing the bats fly over the harbor at sunset.

We have stayed here before, and plan on making it our regular accommodation when we travel up from Cairns. Its just off Macrossan Street, rooms are spacious, refurbished and spotlessly clean. Maria, Lillian and John are lovely hosts who make you feel right at home.

It has been a few years since we stayed here and what a great change. The rooms were clean, and tidy, everything looked fresh. Everything we needed was either in the room or in the communal kitchen close by. The pool was fantastic especially for the kids who spent hours in there. We would highly recommend to families travelling to...

The delightful hosts and staff made us welcome from the first contact. We were in a situation of suddenly needing to find a suitable place to have a small child visit form time to time, and they obliged instantly. They helped to turn an awful experience from another villa, into a very pleasant one. The outdoor kitchen is amazingly well...
