Blue Ocean View Beach House was everything we could wish for, for the perfect family holiday. The house was spacious, comfortable and clean, and the views were spectacular. Melissa made sure we were relaxed and comfortable from the moment we arrived, organising a mini bus to take our luggage, and us, up to the house. She had stocked the kitchen with all those little things you need on a holiday, such as salt and pepper, gladwrap, garbage bags etc so we really only needed to bring food and drinks to enjoy while sitting on the verandah taking in the cool breezes and the amazing view. Board games, books, Xbox, ping pong and three TVs kept us entertained, and the golf buggy was fantastic to get to the beach when you were a little too weary to take the stairs. We would love to spend another holiday in this beautiful and welcoming property, on an Island paradise that is right on our doorstep.
We stayed at the Blue Ocean View Beach House during the September school holidays with our family and could not rate it highly enough. It is located on Moreton island which is an ideal place to go during the busy season and still enjoy a variety of activities and see some amazing sites.
The beach house is spectacular in all areas. The location presents amazing views and is far away enough from the resort area to provide a peaceful stay. It is a spacious home with an excellent layout and is kept in immaculate condition. Of particular note are the hosts who go well above and beyond what I would normally expect. Communication was prompt and extremely helpful. In addition they made several accommodating changes to help make our stay as easy as possible.
Of all places we have stayed Blue Ocean View Beach House has made the top of our list.
My husband, two kids (10 and 8 years old), and I absolutely loved our stay at Blue Ocean View Beach House. The house is spacious, immaculate, light-filled, and well-equipped.
Melissa was a warm, welcoming, and friendly host. Before we even arrived, she emailed me to see if we needed any supplies brought over from Brisbane. (We were already on the island in Bulwer.) She organised our transfers to and from the resort as well. Upon arrival, Melissa showed us around the house and gave us a buggy lesson. We felt very much at home from the start.
Our kids especially enjoyed playing with the board games and table tennis. There's a great selection of DVDs, too. But really, we came to Blue Ocean View for the view, which is incredible, amazing, and inspiring. We also had fun using the golf buggy to get to and from the resort - a mini adventure in itself!
We weren't sure whether to stay at the resort or on the hilltop at Blue Ocean View, but after three days there, we know we definitely made the right choice.
Like most that live in Brisbane we have never visited Moreton. With the resort itself getting the odd mixed review we thought it would be worth trying to stay outside the resort itself. The Blue Ocean View Beach house offers the absolute best of both worlds. From the moment you walk into the main area of the house and see the panoramic views of Moreton Bay you will realise you made the right choice. everything else just tops it off. The ping pong table, golf buggy, toys, books games, bbq....did I mention the view? The ability to use the Resort tours and facilities means you can organise for the family to visit the island attractions.
One hint, for the dolphin feeding you will be behind the resort guest themselves and they limit the numbers so its worth on arriving having a chat with the Tour Desk in the resort on how best to plan your time.
Also with approx 60 P&O Cruises coming to ashore over the coming year its also worth timing your visit 'between ships'...although at worse its only one day of an influx..you could organise an excursion to the Cape if you want to get away from crowds.
Once special thumbs up for the Helicopter operation that is running at the resort. Its an amazing experience, seeing the clear waters, turtles and dugongs from the air is a great experience. Not to mention the whales that will start migrating in June.
Great experience, would definitely go again.
