A slightly expensive (for us) way to stay in a tent, but the owners were welcoming and helpful, including a free transfers both ways from/to the ferry. The communal areas were well-equipped (kitchen, TV, DVD player etc.) but not as clean and sparkling as they could be, but the place had a nice atmosphere. Food is EXPENSIVE on Magnetic Island...
