We had a wonderful time staying at The Old Post Office Building. It was so nice to come to such a beautifully maintained holiday place, that we felt very at home with. It was situated in such a central place in Tin Can Bay. We had great walks, fishing and great cafes and restaurants all within walking distance! Feeding the Dolphins was a highlight for our children. Just superb!

Elspeth and John the owners are lovely people who we managed to meet on our last day.

We would highly recommend staying at The Old Post Office Building to any of our friends who were looking for a beautiful, modern spacious place to stay.

We look forward to staying here again.

Great presentation and comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely relaxed hosts, and a very laid back atmosphere in Tin Can Bay. A fishers paradise where each street is a fish species! We enjoyed finding Dory but never found Nemo.

The apartment is immaculate but simple and easy to live in . We loved the polished wooden floors, comfortable beds, and fresh herbs.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at The Old Post Office. The accommodation is newly renovated, spotlessly clean, comfortable, in a great location and had all we needed. we enjoyed eating our meals at the bar in the lovely sun room overlooking the park and water. Not a single midgie to be seen. We could have happily stayed here for a week. Fantastic bike paths and skate bowl nearby for our boys.
