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!

Thank you so much 'Karen M' for your great review! We do love where we live and are happy when our visitors appreciate the property, the views and our hospitality too. "A change is as good as a holiday" is the saying, and, there couldn't be a more diverse contrast between the noise and bustle of life in highly populated areas, compared with our tranquillity, the natural environment and birdlife. People comment that they can't believe that Brisbane is so close - only an hour away. It's our privilege to host people who choose to stay here....thanks again. Wishing you both well. Trevor and Yvonne

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!

Thank you Jiajia1013, for taking the time to write your Review of your stay in our Writers' Cottage, adjacent to the B&B. Comparing where you live, to here on our friendly and peaceful little island, we imagine would be a shock to those who haven't experienced 'natural Island' living. The birdlife is amazing and almost unafraid, the views and marine activities appealing....apologies 'tho that the crabs didn't jump into the pots you laid. Next time you come we'll take you out in our 2 person canoe to view the large numbers of different turtle species in our picturesque bay, and, hopefully the endangered Dugong too. We look forward to welcoming you and your wife another time and wish you much prosperity in your life together! Trevor and Yvonne

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.

Happy Greetings RidgeeDidge59, We read with delight your wonderful review for which we sincerely thank you.... knowing that you travel so frequently your words are much appreciated! Our life is full of unexpected pleasures - conversations with people like you and from all over the world, learning about their interests, activities and lives, provides us with entertainment in our otherwise quiet neighbourhood. Yes, we do love people and doing what we do is rewarding. Macleay Island is little known or appreciated by even Brisbane locals who are only an hour's easy travelling away. Yes, we enjoy a close supporting community, good sporting and social clubs and many artists, writers and creative people live and retire here. Yarrandabbi is a safe and comfortable island destination which to many is unique - so peaceful, safe, great seascapes and with so much colourful almost friendly birdlife. Wishing you both a healthy and prosperous future... Sincerely, Trevor and Yvonne Trevor and Yvonne
