COURAN COVE ISLAND RESORT on South Stradbroke Island is an ideal location for your next family beach holiday in an unspoilt natural environment. The cabin is located in a tranquil woodland setting for you to unwind surrounded by native rainforest trees and Australian wildlife.

While the Resort has recently become part of the Ramada chain, the resort amenities are still limited during their start up phase. The Resort is fully maintained and you can still use the children's resort style pool, lap pool, tennis courts, and children's playground

There is plenty of room to stretch your legs with 22 kilometres of pristine white ocean beaches and a myriad of nature trails. Enjoy the wildlife, fantastic sunsets and unspoilt stargazing.

The resort has reopened the cafe on the marina and the Spa Island restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Comfortable accommodation

Your accommodation is a spacious Kite's Nest Nature Cabin in the Longstaff precinct which overlooks the rainforest area and is close to many of the amenities of the resort. The cabin has 2 1/2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an open living and eating area and fully equipped kitchen. A bbq on your screened verandah also provides for more casual dining. Comfortably accommodates 5 people.

The general store on Spa Island shop has a limited range of grocery items.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing getaway Great location in between the resort and surf beach. We enjoyed our stay. Recommend to bring your own food & own bikes. We hired bikes which was excellent for getting around but costly. The accomodation itself was spread over three levels. Downstairs was living and a bathroom with shower & toilet, up one set of stairs was the kitchen/ dining and an enclosed back patio (where wallabies would come up) & on the third level was two bedrooms (one queen & one with two singles) as well as a small sleepout with a single bed. Also there is a bathroom with shower & toilet. Forgot to mention a wrap around enclosed screened area downstairs. The cabin is close enough to the guest laundry if you need to use the washing machine/ dryer. We would definitely stay at Couran Cove Island resort again but if we were staying here again would bring a few more items that we forgot like laundry powder, chux, tea towels, hand towels, bath mat, toilet paper etc as the general store is quite costly. This cabin was in a row of four or five cabins. The resort itself is run down but the staff were lovely & you can see it is in a refurbishing stage. The food at the poolside cafe was yummo but again we would suggest bringing the bulk of your food and dining out a handful of times. Overall a very relaxing stay in a place that probably needs a little TLC (bbq unusable, a few things a little worn) much like the resort itself. Would definitely go back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What an amazing place! We had one of the best family holidays we've ever had. The whole place is very unspoilt and relaxing. The cabin is quite basic but clean and comfortable. It's very well positioned halfway between the resort pool/cafe and the beach. We hired bikes (best to arrange this with the resort in advance) and they were invaluable as the resort has paved tracks everywhere and is quite spread out. The owners of this cabin provided luggage transfers to and from the ferry and linen as part of the price so this was great.The fishing was good, the food at the cafe was great, the coffee was excellent! The midgees are a bit ferocious outside at dusk so bring plenty of repellent. If you are staying for a while be sure to bring lots of supplies as the range at the resort shop was very limited- though this is supposed to be improved in future.All in all, if you are looking for a very relaxing holiday in a picturesque natural setting then this is highly recommended.
