Short drive to Tuncurry Bowling Club where we were playing. Property easy to find. We stayed in the Villa (3 bedrooms) and all very clean and comfortable. Would be happy to stay again. Liked the text messages re special deals for meals at the cafe.

Quietness and the overview of the water, seeing the birdlife on the doorstep morning and afternoons. Very good place to stay, will stay longer next time so I can enjoy it even more.

From the moment I arrived, I received nothing but professional staff who could only be described as genuinely warm and helpful. The room and accomodation was spotless and great value for money. Situated right in the middle of everything and plenty of ammenities within easy reach.

Excellent Location. A few minutes walk to the wate

Pros: Stand alone cabins with all the necessary facilities if you are the BYO kind of guy within walking distance to the shops and the waters
Location: Great location by the waters. You could fish in the lakes or take a walk towards the main entrance of the harbour and watch the dolphins... perfect
Friendly staff assistance on arrival. We stayed only for a night and the cabin with all the facilities was great. We will definitely recommend this to all and will come back in the summer holidays for a longer stay. Thanks to the lovely staff members.
