5/5 Excellent

Everything you need
We stayed 3 nights as a mini getaway from our busy work and to celebrate our son’s 1st Bday. The cottage was absolutely what we needed. Sarah was so friendly and got back to us so promptly. Owners put some extra cute things (bday message on the fridge door, Sand toy for Baby and the chocolates). So thoughtful! It was very quite and tranquil. Loved how there was everything in the cottage (repellent, sunscreen, Clothes detergent, toys for kids and games for adults, etc.) We would stay here next time we visit Hervey Bay :)

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing place to stay
Beautiful area, right across the beach. Nice calm water, peaceful surroundings. Close to grocery stores, eateries, botanic garden, pier and markets on Wednesday & Saturday. The cottage had everything that we needed & was very clean, comfortable and tidy. Sarah is very friendly and helpful. We would love to come here again!
