I would have to agree with the previous reviewers of Modras it is a great place to stay and the owner is very friendly and easy going.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. Love to have you back for an extended stay to really appreciate what the region has to offer.

We pulled up with our caravan and got a great spot next to the house. Two minutes to the beach and a 1km walk to town. We walked along the beach to get an ice cream. Damien is a great ambassador for this awesome coastal town and can get you excited about visiting any where in Tumby.

The apartments are in a quiet area of town with not much traffic around. The rooms are good and the kitchen area has everything you might want, although it is only a short walk into town with lots of facilities.

We have returned several times to these apartments over the past ten years, finding them to be the best we have encountered in Australia for privacy, quietness, amenities and facilities..... and only 100 metres from one of the most delightful fishing spots on the Eyre Peninsula.

We have holidaying for 42 years at Tumby Bay and have always stayed at Modra's apartments because the units contain everything we need. They are very spacious, beautiful bathrooms and fish cleaning facilities.

We could not have wished for a cleaner, better equipped unit. Washing machine, Dryer, Microwave, Stove, Hairdryer, Bedding, Towels etc all supplied. The beds were very good. We would highly recommend these apartments. The location is virtually on the sea (within 100 metres) The service presented was top class.
