It was our first trip to Fraser Island and we were so lucky to have Manager Christine look after us for our 4 days at Sailfish on Fraser. The apartment was large and was to be honest more than we were expecting. We were able to base ourselves here and explore the island quite comfortably. Christine looked after us and... More

First time on Fraser and we are all glad we came to Sailfish. When you walk into the apartment you go wow I wasn't expecting it to be so big. They have everything you need and are situated in a good location. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return if we come again.

My partner and I had an amazing 4 day stay at Sailfish. We wish we had stayed longer. We were extremely happy with our 2 bedroom apartment which was larger than expected and a home away from home for us. Julie and Phil had such extensive knowledge of the island which made our days so enjoyable. We loved the friendly... More

Great family friendly location. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Large living room, full kitchen, washing machine, two bathrooms(one has a bath), two bedroom and outdoor covered entertaining area, pool, communal bbq area. Best part of Happy Valley has a dingo fence around the perimeter. Activities on school holidays. Fabulous place to stay.

We stayed at Sailfish for 7 nights and it was fantastic. Our apartment was huge and very comfortable. It was so lovely to have days out at the lakes and creeks and then come back to the comfort of our Sailfish apartment. The managers were very friendly, hospitable and helpful. We will be back!
