Not what we expected
It was very disappointing, great remote location but the property was in bad shape. The oven was dirty and there were spiders in all corner of the house. There were so many mosquitoes and sand flies that we couldn’t go outside which was no fault of the owner but there was no internet which left nothing for us to do. The furniture was so uncomfortable we could even watch TV without getting a back ache. We couldn’t take the dogs for a walk, kayak, cycle or swim, we were confined to a tiny little house with nothing to do. We were travelling with young children and dogs - what a nightmare. We left after 3 days and the owner did offer a partial refund and to come back when there were less bugs which was appreciated.
The weather and insects are totally out of our control and are not always here . We use coils or personal repellant when we need to
Our house as per photo's is a typical modest open plan and not a mansion and is priced accordingly .
We do our utmost to keep our guests happy with plenty to do
Inside we have Bluetooth sound system , tv , dvds , books of non-fiction and fiction of all types , multiple games , cds and jig saws .
Outside we supply fishing rods , bikes , kayaks , crab pots dart board , table tennis table and a fire pit with timber for those cozy marsh mallow fires
We also supply all toiletries and basic cooking needs , flour , rice , oil ,herbs sauces and some tinned food .
Our furniture is not new but in very good condition
There were a few daddy long legs in the corner of the main area which are difficult for our cleaner to keep track of as the ceilings are high raked exposed beam , but I have addressed them
I did not have to refund any money but gave a full refund except for the 3 days that were stayed , could not be any fairer than that
Most guests have children and pets
We are very sorry about your experience as we have had a majority 5 star experience from guests and we do wish you well for the future
We stayed for 3nites and first impressions were it was a impeccably presented property very clean
We loved our stay ,the property was super clean and very well appointed and stocked eqipment wise.We managed to catch 2good mudcrabs the first evening and most of our time was spent relaxing on the veranda watching the world go by and in a blink of an eye our visit was over. The only negative was the abundance of mosquitoes while we came prepared it still surprised us and became a ritual to keep 6 coils going at all times!!!
Overall a fantastic intimate getaway that im sure we will do again we genuinely enjoyed our time and reccomend it to others.
Thanks Dwaine for staying in our holiday house
Mosquitoes run in cycles and unfortunately you had the cycle of big tides no wind , little rain and high humidity .
Our cooler days and any wind they dissapear
Glad you had a great time and yes there aren't many places you can catch fish and mudcrabs without a boat
Stay well and safe travels

Nice quiet location with everything you need
All essentials were covered, easy access to transport etc.
Great little Island Home
Stayed for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to get away from the hustle and bustle of all the tourists on the Sunshine Coast. It was really lovely. Nice and clean with enough room for everybody.
Everything was self contained. I brought along things that were already supplied, like salad bowls, glad wrap etc. So that was great.
Six of us stayed and really enjoyed a few drinks and bbq's out on the deck.
We all went for a kayak and through out a couple of crab pots (no luck unfortunately). The dogs loved it there too. Plenty of room for them to run around and even have a swim on high tide.
A lovely little surprise was that Kevin and Tina left us Bubbles and Chocolates to enjoy. Thank you :)
Only complaint was that the dishwasher wasn't working and we had so many dishes after a Christmas Day Feast :(
Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it anyone.
Thanks for staying in our holiday home
We are pleased you had such a great stay and thanks for letting us know about the dishwasher . Why do things like that happen at Christmas :-)
We will get the dishwasher fixed a s a p
Safe travels Kind regards Kevin and Tina
A little slice of paradise
It felt like home from the moment we walked in. We can honestly say that this has been our favourite getaway thus far! We went kayaking, bike riding, crabbing and some of the time was just spent lounging in the hammock with a good book. We are very grateful to the owners for allowing us and our fur-child to stay in their lovely home and would recommend to anyone who is looking to get away from the rat race. Our only criticism is that we couldn't stay any longer! :)
So glad you enjoyed our holiday home as much as we do
We are very lucky to have a home in a unique area away from the hustle and bustle
We strive to make the home as comfortable and enjoyable as we can and pleased you used most of the toys that we provide
Safe travels and stay well and look forward to your next stay
Truly a home away from Home!
This home really does deliver what it says, peaceful, tranquility everything away from the hustle and bustle. There is a little something there for everyone, a spot of fishing, an easy bike ride, or even a lazy book in a hammock over looking the water. Grab plenty of mozzie repellent especially if your wanting to take the Kayaks out.
It's so good waking up after a good nights sleep, enjoying breakfast out on the veranda listening to the local wild life, then packing a few supplies to explore this little island.
Wish we could have planned to stay longer, Karragarra is a great base location to ferry hop the surrounding Islands.
I invite you to try the "Karralytic House" Kevin & Tina's home away from home, it truly is wonderful!
Liston & Joilene
So glad you enjoyed your stay
We strive to make our house as enjoyable as we can
Especially using the kayaks and bikes and exploring the other islands
You were certainly busy little bees :-)
Safe travels Kind regards Kevin and Tina
You have 3 other islands to explore by catching the free interisland passenger ferry
Karragarra is the smallest of the Bay Island group and has the best beach of any of the local islands
You can explore the island with the pushbikes supplied
