The bed had side tables for both sides. There was a place to hang your towel near the shower. Steve and Janet were the best of hosts. Right on the beach.

A little slice of paradise
The motel is in a beautiful location and very well maintained. The double room was a little small, but was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this motel for a peaceful short stay and i would like to stay here again to enjoy the beautiful Cardwell beach walk.

This is a great little family motel in a fabulous location. The hosts Janet and Steve are jovial and extremely keen to please. We only stayed one night as a stopover but plan to return and enjoy this beautiful location for a few days.
