Perfectly clean, great facilities and best hairdryer EVER. Knock out kitchen, and back deck is great spot for morning coffee and afternoon drinks. Lovely pool, will spend more time in it next visit! Highly recommend Gilligan's Cafe & Bar nearby, we wound up having breakfast, lunch and dinner there during out stay.

It would suit a single/couple as it is fully self-contained and has everything you need. It is close to the Picnic Bay hotel (excellent meals), the jetty (good fishing) and the local bus stop. The local people were very informative with anything that was asked of them and the hotel staff went out of there way for us without being asked. The property was clean, tidy and well set out. They are very private A-frames due to the palms at the front and sides. The fan and air-conditioning is a welcome asset, although we enjoy the warmer weather. The animals surrounding the property seem to add to its appeal. We saw a baby echidna, several Stone-Bush Curley's, a small wallaby, three Brush tail Possums and a pair of Brown Honey-eaters nesting in front along with the varied species calling and residing all around. The reef surrounding Picnic Bay was absolutely fantastic for snorkelling, especially at low tide. The water was 'Murky' due to an Algal Bloom that happens every year at this time for approximately six weeks, but we still enjoyed its brilliant colours and life. We took a trip with 'Aquascene' snorkelling and fishing tours. The professional service offered from Adam was excellent and I would quite happily take another tour without hesitation. All in all, I would quite happily recommend this property to anyone without hesitation. Our stay there was wonderful and we will return again. The property managers were brilliant and I am very happy with their service. Nature Pete.
