OkFirst off, most accommodation on Magnetic Island is completely overpriced for the quality you get. So JR's is probably just about in line with everything else on "Maggie" and just about basic accommodation. With only the basics available, I would not suggest JR's for a family. The garden is too small for kids and with the busy road makes it more suitable for adult travellers. To some people the bus stop in front of the property might be a plus, but not if it comes roaring past at 6am and every hour after. Also being on the bottom floor, you have all the noise from above to contend with. There is nothing else close and the nearest beach is a 20min walk away. Basics such as sugar, coffee, tea, salt&pepper and soap is not provided either, and I would suggest the owners invest in a dishwasher. For $100/day I would have expected a bit more.

Lovely place to stay! Very relaxing and accommodated our dog which was great! Really handy to have had the bus stop right outside too. Highly recommend to others.

JR���s on MangoWe are enjoying a lovely time on Magnetic Island. My friend is up visiting from Sydney. JR's on Mango is a great base from which to enjoy the island. It is a lovely, garden corner retreat in a lush rainforest environment. The unit is older, but spacious, comfortable, and clean with a big yard and beautiful garden outlook. There is lots of room for the two of us, as we each have our own room, a large shower with plenty of hot water. It is nicely appointed and the owner graciously gave us a discount, which I really appreciated. The owners live just upstairs so it is helpful if you need something. They have just given us a loan of their hairdryer. Judy has been very responsive to all my emails and phone call enquiries. The only issue I brought to her attention was that the fan in the room I stayed in rattled and was too noisy to use. Fortunately it wasn���t too hot at night. They are doing some road works nearby and we found that there was a lot of early morning traffic starting around 6am with buses and trucks going by. This might not be a problem once the work is completed. There is no internet or DVD player, but not an issue for us as we brought our own wireless device and hard drive with movies. It is a wonderful home away from home and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to others.
