Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic accommodation in beautiful location! My family stayed in the lodge for 8 nights over the Christmas New Year period. The accommodation was clean and inviting, better than I expected. Wallabies came right up to the deck which was a beautiful place to spend the afternoon with a wine while being able to watch the little one play safely in the sand. Having bikes provided was great and saved money on hire charges. The lodge was equipped with everything we needed and the beds were amazingly comfortable! Beautiful bathroom. Thank you Judy and I'm sorry its taken me so long to leave this review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location & value for money First time to Couran Cove & South Stradbroke and absolutely loved it. The lodge was very spacious with big bedrooms - more than enough room for 2 adults & 2 kids. The gas fireplace was a welcome surprise as we stayed over winter. It was great to be able to safely let our kids (10 & 4) play on the sand directly in front of the unit or kayak in the lagoon, while we watched & relaxed on the huge deck. We had wallabies constantly right next to us on the beach all the time and the kids loved it. Heaps to do - Loved the ride over to the surf beach where kids collected plenty of cool shells. This was one of the best located places to stay in the resort if you have young kids. It was close/central to everything the resort had to offer. Having the bikes also made this a whole lot more economical than hiring one everyday. We will definitely be back.
