Your not here on Rottnest to spend quality time in your accomodation, you are here to explore! I had a Caroline Thompson Cabin to myself (the end of off season) and it had absolutely everything I needed and was the perfect place to lay my head.
I loved how the cabin had utilised

Me, my friend and her little son stayed here for 1 night. Not luxurious but really all you need. We didn't know that we had to bring sheets and towels but it was still fine for one night. Our cabin had 1 queen size and 2 bunk beds and was equipped with blankets and pillows. It wa

Stayed with my 4yr old daughter and we could not wait to leave these bungalows. Parties going on had to call the ranger which sorted the situation, this was at 2am. Came back to Perth feeling exhausted. Love Rotto but will be giving these bungalows a big miss for next time. These

can you drink the tap water in the Caroline thompson cabins
I purchased bottled water at the island's store. I've seen other tourists buy bottled water as well. I have not seen any warnings or signs saying not to drink the water.

Are there any vacancys between 6-8 th April in Caroline Thompson
Could you please give a price for 21-26 April 2017
I booked through Expedia (US site). I initially sent an inquiry on availabilities of the dates that I wanted and they mentioned that there were no cabins available but there were rooms available in the hotel (which was more expensive). I went to Expedia and there were cabins to the dates that I wanted. Not sure what was the disconnect between the systems that Rottnest Island authority was using. No issues when checked-in. I was given the cabin that I booked in Expedia.

"Spend more, or rent sheets/towels at booking or BYO"
"No views but nice shady trees and close to beach."
"In this set of cabins they are all much the same"
"This is not a hotel! The cabin is amongst many others."
"Chose rooms close to the road, 701 is good from what I saw."
