5/5 Excellent

Great little place for a base to see the sights
This is a small hut with basic ammenities suitable for a place to sleep and make food for day trips. Worked for us as we had friends in a house nearby and had dinner with them. Clean and tidy with an old school rustic fit out. Live like the locals have for years. This is no resort experience and be prepared to be part of the surrounds as there’s not enough room to stay home.

1/5 Terrible

Not what we expected
I was overwhelmed at the state of the fishing hut. The property was not ready on arrival we had to wait around for it to be cleaned. The laundry was absolutely disgusting. For the price you pay you expect more. We will not be staying there but booked into a nicer place this year. I think this is more a fishing hut and more suited for men on a fishing trip not families.

3/5 Okay

No problems, very basic, a bit expensive
We enjoyed our stay on Fraser in January and Bree was nice and welcoming. The listing was as described, very basic, and we had no major issues at the accommodation and enjoyed our trip. However, overall we felt it was expensive for what it was. We are regular visitors to the islands (Fraser/Moreton/Stradddie) and have paid less for nicer, also in peak seasons. Based on the information provided it was difficult to discern what to bring and what not to bring. In the end we packed our usual full camping boxes (minus the tent) and were glad we did, especially to have all of our own kitchen equipment and Webber as cooking with the provided kitchen would have been limiting for us. We couldn’t get the grill or oven working, and ‘no oven’ was not explicitly stated anywhere. The fridge was warm when we arrived which was difficult after a long day travelling with a lot of food in an esky needing to go into a cold fridge, but after a day or so cooled down. We had a great trip but will look for a change next time.

5/5 Excellent

The Cottage
A quaint cottage by the sea. A place you can just relax and enjoy nature. If you’re looking for something simple, a grade above camping, with only the sound of birds and the ocean then this is for you.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful spot on island paradise
Thanks Bree for hosting our family. Your little cottage had provided us with the perfect experience of Island life. It was all we needed after a long day out and to kick back, have a cold beer and play card games with the teens. We had the best time to check out and detox from our busy everyday life. The cottage was in the best location, had everything we needed. We enjoyed our chit chats with you, hope you keep well and we will be back again very soon!
