Great little spot with friendly staff. Mossie coils and repellant a much needed bonus. Thankyou. Tin Can Bay is a very relaxed place so if you need to chill out this is the place for you. The children really enjoyed the dolphin visit which was extremely popular as it was Easter.

We had a great little stay. The place was simple and spotlessly clean. The guys running it were fabulous. In a handy little spot not far from anything. If visiting Tin Can Bay I would would highly recommend it.

From the moment we arrived we felt so welcomed. Such a lovely little place where the staff are so friendly and helpful. Rolo the resident Border Collie and Boss was a real highlight. Very clean rooms and comfortable bed. The pool and BBQ area amongst the beautiful nature setting was just so relaxing. Would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay! Although it was only overnight. Owner was very welcoming and nothing was a problem, even getting a room ready for us before checkin time. Rollo made us feel at home. Highly recommended stay, close to water and boat ramps. Lovely pool and BBQ area.

My son and I spent one night here on a trip to feed the dolphins and check out the area. We stayed in a family room which was very clean and had a well supplied small kitchen. An added bonus was an area to wash our jetski. The new owner is obviously making improvements and we felt we had good...
