It's a sound holiday concept involving a picturesque peninsula, fun and interesting accommodation, and a prime location within a prime location - can't see any issues based on overall value for price paid, I've left some photos of my garden view unit to help show that making the property more modern and up to date was a great concept. I thought (based on my experiences as a guest) that the property was being gradually improved and new equipment and renovations are being gradually added...but I can't fully conclude that, hence the photos are numerous with this review to try to justify why I thought the property had a prime location with improving amenities.

Only providing one star as there is no option for none. I feel like I've stayed In a hotel that Gordon Ramsay has filmed, disgusting. Outdated, dirty, broken and my only regret is not staying elsewhere. The floors are chipped, sticky and dirty, the furniture was not stable and looked like they haven't been cleaned. The airconditioning wasn't working and upon inspection the filters have never been cleaned (see photo, YUCK). The flick mix on the sink was ready to fall off, gas burner didn't work, towel racks broken bad hand towels rack falling out of wall, rangehood light broken and half working. I can't believe this place is able to operate! To top it off the instructions on food waste encourages "throwing your scraps into the ocean". Anyone who is familiar with Far North Queensland is aware of crocodiles and this being far from "Eco friendly". After reading further reviews on TripAdvisor, it's apparent this has been a problem since atleast 2018 and the owners don't care for the upkeep or presentation. Safe to say, family is not impressed after what was supposed to be a nice stay. 🤢🤢

There is so much accomodation in Bowen and we had to pick the worst 🤦‍♀️. It was dirty, smelly and the mould on the walls was an absolute disgrace. Yes it is old and dated which I don’t mind, but this is no excuse for being dirty and the mould was disturbing to say the least, can’t be good for ones health. The location is all it has going for it... if I had looked at it prior to paying I wouldn’t have stayed there. Very disappointing.

We had a pleasant stay at the Beachside Holiday Units! Although the unit is older it was very clean and all of the facilities inside the unit were great! It looks over the beach which is nice and is a short stroll to the beautiful Horseshoe Bay via a beachside path. As stated in my heading, it is certainly value for money 👌

Recently spent a long weekend here and we were very happy with our stay, we had a 1 bedroom unit, quite compact but had everything you need, I would say it has recently been refurbished the bed was very comfortable and the unit spotless. The only downside was no Wi-Fi but evidently they have applied for it so that problem should soon be rectified
