Perfect family house in an amazing location
This house was perfect for us - 2 families with 5 children. The place was clean, had absolutely everything you could need (and more), large yard for the kids to run around in, and was so close to there shop, pub and beach. Will definitely stay there again.
These were perfect guests. Everything was left just as they found it.
This property was better than we were expecting. The rooms are very quiet. There is a large table upstairs and downstairs which was great to be upstairs or down depending on how we felt. The downstairs table with a BBQ was a great size for a house full of guests. We had a fantastic time while there and we hope to come back one day. We know where we will be staying.
Lovely place for a group to holiday
This house is well set up for groups. It was a comfortable place to return to at the end of a day exploring Fraser Island. It is in a convenient location and within a dingo deterrent fence. We had all the comforts we needed but had to be careful with power useage on the solar system.
I am please this groups fully enjoyed the home. The solar power system does have a back-up generator, but it has never been required.
The house was fine however it is very close to neighbors property which turns out to be a backpacker stay for tag along tours about 25 people per night the music from next door was loud enough if you are using the main outdoor area you can't hear the tv. This is a major problem as it was not just one group 5 nights out of 7 we had different groups same thing there is an 11 o'clock noise curfew which is great except the neighbours are listening to loud music right up to 11PM.
However the house was clean and tidy and easily accommodated our two families.
Due to the neighbours I would never stay in this property again.
I am disappointed that Adam experienced noise from neighbouring guests in another holiday home. Unfortunately he did not make me aware there was an issue at the time he was our guest. I could then have taken the issue up with the tour group and with the owner of the property. Previous guest reviews comment favourably on the location.
Fantastic accommodation - highly recommend!!
This home was centrally located on the island for us to explore the east and west coast on day trips. Conveniently located near the general store and Happy Valley restaurant. The owner was easy to contact and answered any of our questions quickly. Staff at the store were friendly.. Property managers were helpful and welcoming. Perfect set up for our family of five to stay upstairs, and my parents to have privacy with their own bedroom, bathroom and breakfast making facilities downstairs. Children loved playing in the front yard. Will be highly recommending this property to all of my friends and family. Thank you!!
Perfect for our large family!
Very clean, amazing location, kids loved it!!!
Property managers were very helpful and kind.
We will be back for sure!!
