We just left and we want to say a big thank you to the owners. They went above and beyond to help us out with the boat and made sure we were comfortable and happy. The rooms were clean and we loved relaxing on the little balcony with the birds.

I arrived late at night in early August, staying just one night to catch a flight to Lady Elliott Island the next morning. The room and facilities are clearly for longer stays, but the couple who managed the property couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I arrived by taxi and was received by (I'm sorry to say, I have...

Stayed at boat harbour resort for a week of fishing Hervey Bay. Parking my trailer was no problem. The managers where very helpful and friendly. The rooms were well appointed with cooking facilities, verandah, bath and shower. The rooms were clean and tidy and well maintained. The grounds were excellently maintained and it looked picture perfect. Convenient to the boat...

Great hosts! Stayed in Bungalow 2 "Poppy's Little House" which is pet friendly. Being pet friendly has not been at the expense of the humans either. Very clean, self contained, two bedroom, private bathroom, dishwasher, washing m/c and dryer. Lovely deck area with outdoor setting and plenty of room to just hang out. Walk straight across the road to beach...

Me and my two boys 8 and 9 stayed here very sadly for 3 nights, it should have been much longer. Amber and Michael who own and run this resort are the friendliest and most helpful people going, once again if you get an idiot behind something your experiences won't be that great, but these guys made it for us...

The room smelt like dead fish... But at least it has 'Free Internet'... searched the room for access codes... none. When inquired about internet access at the office - was informed that the Wifi is limited as there is only a single 'Dongle' servicing the entire property. Was eventually handed the access codes (reluctantly) with the warning that I had...

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us David. The Wi-Fi is an ongoing issue we have with Telstra and we will continue to try and receive an improved service from them.

Well, what can say? The accommodation is excellent! For me, it's all about space, simplicity and service. Amber and Micheal and genuine host, warm, friendly and engaging. The kitchenette and the outside balcony perfect for me because I do like option to cook and entertain my clients while I'm in town. Although, I do talk a bit, so thank you...
