We couldn't have hoped for a more hospitable and friendly place to stay for our week exploring Magnetic island. The resort is kept in perfect condition, and the pool area is perfect for a dip after a game of tennis, or for cooking a bbq with family in the evenings.

Island Leisure Resort is a beautifully maintained property in a handy location on Magnetic Island. The bures are spacious and have just about everything you would expect.The owner/lady at the reception was very helpful even telling me where to find the Rock Wallabies. While generally quiet, there is some noise from the outside as the windows are louvres. One night... More

My sister and I recently stayed at Island Leisure Resort for seven days. As noted previously Eileen and her staff were very welcoming and helpful. The resort consists of 16 bures which have recently been updated, including making two bures and the whole site wheelchair accessible. Everything on the site is to the disability codes so there were no worries... More

We stayed for 5 nights. The accommodation is excellent. Very clean with lovely grounds. The management are so friendly. The place is close to the marina and ferries. Also close to bus stop and the staff arranged bus tours and rental motes. There is a small shop and close to mini supermarket.

The perfect place to wind down and enjoy the sunshine. The most beautiful gardens surround the villas which are very comfortable. Wonderful hosts who are always willing to help and advise you on the best deals on the island. An enjoyable stay.
