Stayed last weekend with family visiting from the UK. The rooms were clean and spacious, and comfortably accommodated 4 adults. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, giving plenty of information about the local area. Tin Can Bay is a wonderful area and dolphin feeding on Sunday...More

Thank you for your great and constructive review. I will take on board your comments about the beds and pillows ; we are gradually replacing mattresses and pillows and when you stay next time you will notice the difference. Thank you for staying with us

If you are only there for a night or a few days, this is a great place to put your head down. The cabins are clean and tidy with air conditioning, great little kitchen so what more would you want. Parking is not near your...More

Hello😊I have had family stay with you before, and they enjoyed it very much. My son has not been well or enjoyed a break for a very long time. Your place will be just what he needs to relax for a few days. He is very tall so would require a king-size or queen bed please. It would be good to have one of your units that has a lounge seating arrangement, and good WiFi reception He would appreciate peace and quiet, so not too close to public venues. Does each room have TV? Aircon? I love the pic you have of a room with lovely white sheets, a big bed, bright blue throw over end of bed and a small lounge with blue stripe cushions. I don't know if I am able to request a room, or it would depend on availability. We have already booked our dates with you well invadvance.. 27,28,29th of April, Marc Whitehead. We are treating our son, and he is really looking forward to his time with you, many thanks, kind regards kaye whitehead👍😊
