What an amazing holiday! Complete relaxation, with total privacy. Marg and Mike, the caretakers, more than helpful and very friendly at all times. Beautifully set up and decorated. A fabulous, very large deck with amazing views and variety of seating and relaxation arrangements. Amazing sunsets, which can be enjoyed on the deck, or take a short walk up to the lookout to enjoy the sunrise. The double kayak supplied is a great way to see around this beautiful island paradise. It was also great for us as we caught many and varied fish species from the kayak every day, coral trout being abundant and a great treat for lunch most days. Carefully planning helps with self catering and to make sure you have adequate supplies of food and drinks for the entire stay. Basic pantry requisites are supplied, which Marg advises well of in the lead up to the stay. We hired a boat from Mission Beach boat hire, which was a good way to spend a day seeing the surrounding islands. Our transfers with Mission Beach Charters were fuss-free, with Bec and Jase being very helpful with planning, information and advice. They looked after our hire car while we were on the island and had it waiting at the boat ramp for us on our return. Gene and Sharon, owners of East Bedarra Retreat, are also extremely helpful in planning your holiday and ensuring you have the perfect escape to paradise.
