I was looking for a quiet place to relax for the weekend with our dog, but not too far from town. This was the perfect place, about 20 minutes drive to Hervey Bay, quiet when you got back. All amenities to cook and feel at home were provided. Our dog had full access to the outdoor area, and was free to explore the place. The owner Catherine and her family were mindful to give us our private space. Their dog Mitch was always ready to welcome us, and was a good companion for our dog Herbie. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a respite from a busy city lifestyle. Good value for money too.
As a group of four adults and six children I was worried that we'd be on top of each other, but the house has a very generous living room with plenty of comfy couches, a large kitchen area and decent-sized front deck. The spaces under the carport and on the front lawn are great for watching the sunset. We saw a kangaroo one afternoon, much to the children's delight and there's plenty of birdlife around the lake.
The location is great. Walking distance to the beach and boat ramp, as well as the local hotel and bottle shop.
The house is nicely decorated and felt homely. Huge shower and bath great for washing our tribe.
The only negative is the lack of fan in the children's room, though we were able to move the pedestal fan from the living area into the kids' room. Otherwise, a very positive experience and Belinda was great to deal with.
