Trevor and Yvonne, our hosts at Yarrandabbi Dreaming, are just the best. My husband and I stayed for a month’s holiday in the Writers Cottage and it was just delightful. The cottage is very lovely and the special touches such as luxurious bed linen and designer bath towels made us feel very pampered. We often joined our hosts of the main deck for a late afternoon gin and tonic and took in the sprawling views of the bay and Stradbroke Island. We saw the best moonrise ever! I utilized the complimentary kayak and life jacket almost everyday. I got up close and personal with dugongs and large turtles. I saw manta rays, dolphins and fish jumping up out of the water - just stunning. There are serene mangrove forests to paddle through at high tide, sandy beaches to pull up on for a rest, and a fenced swimming area at Pats Point with lovely clear water for a dip. Back at Yarrandabbi Dreaming I swam in the crystal clean waters of their stunning 12 metre pool, prepared meals in the cottage’s well equipped kitchen, and then enjoyed our meals on the cottage veranda overlooking the pool area garden and the blue waters of the bay. We also ate out lots. Yarrandabbi is indeed a dream come true - the apartment is beautiful with a large spa bath and the whole property is clearly well loved, with Trevor and Yvonne doing all they can to ensure you love it too. Book in for as long as you can for a perfect relaxing holiday from the madness of city life! We’ll definitely be back. …
We spent three nights at Yarrandabbi Dreaming B&B and had a relaxing stay. Our accommodation was the cottage, it was super clean, had plenty of storage for luggage and clothing as well as a fully equipped kitchen. Our hosts Yvonne & Trevor supplied more than enough or expected food in the fridge and pantry. The property is large with beautiful gardens that lead down to the water. On our first night we wandered down and took in the views of the bay - just magic! Our hosts Yvonne and Trevor were friendly and helpful, we enjoyed a complimentary drink at their sun downer bar while having a great chat about life on Macleay Island. I would recommend visiting and staying at Yarrandabbi Dreaming to anyone wanting to stay at Macleay Island.
We have just spent 2 nights at this wonderful property. We stayed in a queen size room with spa bath and sea views. The hosts Yvonne and Trevor made us feel very welcome and couldnt do enough for us without being obtrusive. We made full use of the pool and private beach and took the canoe out for a test drive arond the mangroves (which is free of charge). Breakfast is amazing with a great choice and is premium restaurant quality. At night we were collected from the accommodation by a coutesy bus to Macleay Island bowls club where we enjoyed beautifully prepared meals. If your looking for a relaxing and pampering break away Yarrandabbi Dreaming is definitely for you. 10 out of 10!
I worked on Macleay island for 7 weeks.Trevor and Yvonne provide such a good accormadation that I have my own cottage. Trevor lend me his Kayak and took me out for beach fishing. The accommodation is very clean, quiet and in front of beach. You can have easy access to water and there are so many beautiful birds. Highly recommended!
From the moment we arrived Trev and Yvonne spoiled us completely. Warm, friendly and great conversationalists with terrific stories swapped over a wine on the top deck. A delightful experience for the discerning traveler. We highly recommend the fruit parfait at breakfast. Followed by more courses, we were thoroughly satisfied after a hearty breakfast each day. Nothing was too much trouble at all. Quiet and secure with plenty of space and privacy. Great rooms, fluffy towels, attention to detail abounds. A pleasurable stay and wonderful experience.
