4x2 bedroom cabins.

About a 5 minutes drive from town. Workman's beach 10 minutes away for a swim. 2 minute walk from your cabin you get to sit on lovely island and watch the turtles surface hoping to be fed. Very cute. Great place to stay if you plan on doing day trips and coming back to sleep. Not a real lot to do at Lala land.

Interesting but different….

Pros: It was clean and quiet.
Location: Beach, fishing and lots of tourist activities.
I stayed at LaLaLand just this weekend. Unfortunately I was in the area for work reasons, not leisure so I had no time to enjoy the surroundings. This property is located in a rural setting at Agnes Water, so not within walking distance from the beach however it would only be a 5 minute drive to a local beach, shops etc. There is a "shack" which is like a house that could cater for a large group and 4 independent cabins. I stayed in the cabin on the far end. I actually quite enjoyed staying in the cabin. It was quite roomy, had very comfortable furniture, had a little verandah out the front, full size fridge, a practical kitchen (no oven though), a large bathroom with an interconnecting door to the second bedroom at the back of the cabin that had a set of bunks and another single bed. The cabin is fully air conditioned but also had plenty of windows to let the fresh air in. There is plenty of open space for kids to run around safely in and I suspect you would be allowed to park your boat on site. The thing I liked the most was it was very clean. I would recommend this property for all, especially if you wanted a different experience than a beachfront holiday, if you wanted peace and quiet or if you were travelling with children who needed lots of room to burn off energy (actually those two are contradictory statements)!

Perfect

Pros: location, cleanliness, staff
Cons: nothing
Location: Sand sea and sun
If you like all your creature comforts and the beauty and tranquillity of the great outdoors then this place is truly perfect. The cabins are a home from home and the site is idyllic. Every detail has been well thought out and the staff are helpful. The cabin was spotless. The reviews for this place are already great, I see no reason to disagree. I intend to return when time allows and hope that too many people DON'T read this review because it's one of those perfect places that i'd like to keep to myself.

Pros: Only 4 cabins on a massive property, so quiet you could only hear the birds.
Cons: Not walking distance from beach, but we appreciated the peace and quiet whilst travelling with our baby
Location: Tranquil
very neat and tidy rooms. a door to the second room may have helped block a bit more noise from the kitchen/living space.

Kent and I are glad you appreciate great service. We've installed a WiFi booster since your stay which has increased the signal (best reception is in the peaceful BBQ area). We're looking forward to seeing you next time.

You obviously have very good taste, thanks for sharing. When Kent and I designed the cottages (and gardens) we put a lot of thought into what's important when on holiday, and included some homely extras

Thanks for your review, we're glad you loved being here. Unfortunately Vodaphone does not work anywhere in Agnes Water or 1770. We're always happy to lend our phone to guests who have Vodaphone and need to make a call.
