The Ponderosa is a purpose built home and pet friendly, for those wanting to relax and enjoy their holidays on this beautiful tropical Island. With scenic rural views and a working horse ranch right next door, it offers the best of Magnetic Island’s diversity between our National Parks and the entry to the Coral Sea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this house! This is our second time staying at the Ponderosa, for a good reason. The location is stunning in Horseshoe Bay, not too close that you can hear all the backpackers but close enough to walk to the beach. The house itself has everything you need for a getaway - decent kitchen (although a better stove/pans would be great!), laundry facilities, spacious bedrooms, a verandah to watch the sunrise and a clean pool area. The best part for us - they accept dogs! The yard is fully enclosed so we could take him with us with a decent amount of space for him to play, can't get much better than that for canine lovers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable property Ponderosa was a well equipped holiday home and the fact that it was pet friendly was a bonus. We all enjoyed our stay and the pool area is lovely. We will definitely seek out to book and stay at the Ponderosa again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT FAMILY HOLIDAY HOME ! Thoroughly recommend "The Ponderosa" for families, particularly families with pets. "The Ponderosa" is a very clean, comfortable and well appointed holiday home. Well equipped kitchen, beautiful clean pool, great yard for pets and only approx. 1km from Horseshoe Bay beach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely holiday It was fantastic being able to have my puppy stay with us. Great facilities and the pool was lovely! A bit of a hike to the beach in the heat but not a concern overall for fit people. Also the double bed was a bit uncomfortable but not sure about the other rooms. I would stay again all that being said.
