Beautiful place with a family of koalas living in the camping area. The staff were nice, the bar and happy hour is great!! Our double bed was so comfy! Not happy with the location of our "penthouse" as is was stuck between the road, swimming pool and bar so very noisy. Luckily the bar music shut down at 10pm as the music was very very LOUD. If it wasn't for Covid it would have shut at midnight. Watch out for ants, big and small, they are everywhere, don't leave your food out of fridge.

Site is fantastic, camp kitchen and facilities clean and high standard, pool was nice and bar is excellent to have. Only challenge was working out camping space - absolutely love the idea of not have defined little boxes, but having it so loose meant we were all over the place, sort of blocking access to things (including, getting your car out!). And note - it you bring a camping extension cord, it does not work on all powered sites. These are minor quibbles, overall the place is idyllic

Very nice, will definitely recommend and use again if planning a sneaky Maggie weekend. Would recommend ringing up reception if the type of accommodation you want doesn't show up as available online via the booking website, as staff were able to sort something out for us and were very accommodating!

Great . Nice cosy little bungalow for sure. Very good for a one or two night stay to devour the beauty of magnetic island.

Absolutely sensational. Resort style living at a fraction of the price. Camped on an unpowered site, which included access to all facilities. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again :D Being a combined wildlife experience, grunting koalas and the calls of birds will potentially disrupt your sleep at night. Enjoy!
