Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved every second! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Samsara Holiday House. It was such a beautiful and secluded tranquil setting, yet still close enough to the beaches and shops. Our children loved feeding the kookaburras that would visit each morning. The house itself looked as good as the pictures which can sometimes be deceiving. There was ample room for our family of 4 and we were all very comfortable. We have stayed at a few different properties on Magnetic Island but this was by far our favourite and we look forward to visiting again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing Very relaxing and beautiful house. We loved the closeness to nature right in the yard. Peaceful sound of the river/creek was great Great facilities in the house and comfortable beds. My young children loved playing in the rockpool. Very short walk to the waterfall once we went exploring. Relatively close to alma beach
