Way over priced. Def. needs a makeover. Atmosphere was more in the realms of an aged care facility..

Good caravan park close to the water.

Enjoyable week in a comfortable en suite cabin. No shop nearby but bus at the door. Cabin suitable for one or a couple. A bit small for 2 friends. Dogs allowed in the park but not in the en suite cabins. Lovely water views over the quiet road. Nice pool but no play ground.

Our Pet Cabin is to provide a standard cabin for people travelling with a small dog and also suitable as budget accommodation. This cabin has been refurbished and recently fitted with a small A/C for some comfort for our guests during the warmer months. We also offer new self contained Studio Cabins(no dogs) which may have been a more suitable selection. We are fortunate to be in the Tweed Area and close to the Gold Coast and pleased you enjoyed the location.

Thankyou for your feedback. Sorry to hear the sofa bed was uncomfortable but these Studio Cabins are set up mainly for couples. Our new pool area has been completed and ongoing updating is taking place.

Cons: My daughter accidentally distroyed the table decorations and I felt the reaction to this went overboard. I apologised but the owner kept ranting.
Facilities: Brand new; Value: Not worth its price; Was very clean and fresh, however the location was not as I expected from the description.

We ask our guests to leave our accommodation in a clean and tidy condition. It is common practise that guests are responsible for any damages. Our park is located along the picturesque Terranora Inlet at Tweed Heads South and in close proximity to the start of the Gold Coast.
