We had our first family holiday in literally years with our two small children and couldn't have chosen a more idealic place to have it. This quirky lovely house not only had everything we needed and more but it was located centrally on the island and in the most picturesque spot imaginable. Loved sharing our fruit with the wildlife, drinking a glass of wine at dusk on the verandahs or early in the morning watching the world wake up in the bush that surrounded us. We fell in love and will be back. Thanks for the memories.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
My husband and I and our two young kids (4 and 6) loved staying at Samsara, on Magnetic Island. The house is very clean and had all we required in the way of amenities. Right near the bus-stop and the RSL which has a Friday night market in the garden. The wildlife that came for treats, were so friendly, and included lorikeets, kookaburras, currawongs, ravens, possums, we also saw an echidna one night, scrub hens, curlews...and just a short walk to Geoffrey Bay, where we fed wallabies at dusk. Only a short stroll to Alma Bay too. Highly recommend Samsara! Everyone was so friendly on Magnetic Island. Would love to go back! Only downside was - we should have stayed longer!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
