Great location, walking distance to gorge walk and shops. As per other comments, the internals of the units need a bit of a face lift. Everything worked and was clean, just a bit old and dated.

Great ocean view from the balcony and short stroll to the shops, beach and the Gorge Walk. Interior of the unit would benefit from an update and refresh.

Great location and great view of the ocean

Pros: Gardens, pool, location
Cons: It looks like it could get a little upgrade with new fly wire screens and touch up here and there in the unit
Location: Beautiful beach, nice cafes, and great walks
My partner and I were very comfortable at Samarinda. The unit was very nice, and the kitchen was well set up, which we used for 2 night meals. Enjoyed sitting out on the balcony for breakfast, and enjoyed swimming in the pool. The unit is in a good location with a short walk to the headland walk, which is lovely and to the shops and cafes. Friendly managers - and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Stradbroke.

Home away from home

Friendly staff, felt very welcome from the start. Srunning views, located only a short walk to the beach, and shops. Clean and tidy room, very comfortable, with everything you need to feel at home.

Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately due to the location you will find that all accommodation on North Stradbroke Island is generally more expensive than the mainland.
