Loved everything, great location -50m from the sea, short distance to bus stop, and to restaurants. Room was spacious, kitchen was well equipped, pool had plenty of Sun loungers. We enjoyed a very relaxing weekend. Check in and out was quick and easy, friendly helpful staff.

Stayed for a few days in this small, quiet, superbly designed resort. Excellent room, tranquil pool and easy access to Nelly Bay beach. Staff were extremely friendly with special mention to Eileen and Jen. Hired a 4x4 car for a morning and given guidance to several small isolated bays to explore - a grand adventure. Organised a dive trip to...

Really nice self contained units that were spacious and had everything you need. Chilled, close to ferry, beach, bus and supermarket. Staff were friendly and very helpful. A few ants around the sink so keep your open food in the fridge.

Hi Rochelle, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Yes here in the tropics all opened food and drinks must be kept in the fridge. Anything left out on bench tops will attract ants within minutes. Thanks again for a 5/5. Kind regards Eileen Nethercott - Manager - Island Leisure Resort

Quiet, comfortable spot close to the beach, meant for the self-catering crowd. Rooms were large, airy with a good kitchenette to meet culinary needs. We like to cook and it was fine with supermarkets and bottle store close by. Pool area was fabulous with good BBQ facilities. Whoever did their landscaping knew what they were doing, with little tongue-in-cheek touches....
