Travel to South Stradbroke Island is by water. If you have your own vessel, there is a berth nearby that is a 1st in best dressed basis, or there is an extra cost for a marina berth, and your vessel can be viewed from the apartment deck (cost depends on length of vessel, per day) The resort gives vouchers that can be used for food and beverage. For example up to a 4 metre vessel cost is $20 per day, Mon to Thurs, and you receive a $20 voucher that can be used at all food and beverage outlets at the resort.Fridays to Sundays the fee is $40 per day (with a $40 voucher that can be spent at all food and beverage outlets) The marina berth must be booked through Couran Cove.

Ramada Couran Cove Resort water taxis depart regularly daily, and must be booked prior to travel. Cost is $30 return per adult, $15 return per child (extra luggage & large eskys additional cost). This item must be booked through Couran Cove.

There are also private water taxis, for example the Broadwater Taxi. Price on application, but usually approx. $150 return (4 to 5 passengers including luggage and eskys) We highly recommend this service for families or those who wish to travel when it suits them and not be dictated by a timetable. Guests deal directly with the owner/skipper of the service. Contact numbers can be provided if required.

Excellent property - great position

  • 5 of 5

Starfish at Couran Cove was perfect for our holiday. The condition and presentation of the property was lovely. The decor is made to match the atmosphere, with sea marine life and complements the apartment. Very comfortable bed and lounges. Good size and layout, huge bright bathroom. Relaxing nights on the balcony overlooking the boats, watching the sun set. Great fun cycling around the resort and to the surf beach, and also having the use of the resort facilities. Excellent for us with boat facilities available through the resort.

Stayed 2 weeks 2017/2018 - Nice to deal with Carolyn and Mal

Beautiful view over the marina

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place with great view over marina. Loved the balcony and the comfy outdoor setting. Very clean and modern. Had everything you need in the kitchen and a really cozy lounge. Close to the resort facilities but bit of a walk (30min) to the surf beach. It's a nice walk though so perfectly fine if you have enough time on the island to explore.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review Anne, much appreciated. We are happy that you agree the apartment has terrific views and a comfy outdoor setting, perfect for relaxing with a beverage. Yes, the beach is a fair way from the resort it's true. We will aim to have 4 bicycles there asap, as cycling is the way to go, only taking about 10 minutes. There is the resort 'train' available out to the beach, and the restaurant also, at selected times. Apologies that we didn't have bicycles available for your stay though. They will be available as soon as possible. Many thanks for choosing Starfish@Couran, and we hope you are able to stay again some time.
