We travelled from Brisbane to Cairns and return over the Christmas New Year period. Of all the accommodation we used, this property by far was the best! And we are seasoned world travellers. The hosts Diane and Bob could not have done more for us, from welcoming us and our treasured dog, to explaining everything and then leaving us alone. We were so impressed, that we stayed there again on our way home. We will definitely stay there again and in fact, now want to see more of Townsville.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tiramula Lodge. It is in a great location with a bus stop down the end of the main street which makes getting around Magnetic Island a breeze if you need to use the bus services. The property is fantastic with full air-conditioning (a nice reprieve from the hot tropical weather and days exploring in the sun), a great deck, multiple fridges and other seating areas inside and outside. The pool is lovely however one recommendation would be to put up a shade sail over the pool as it was very hot (maybe they are waiting for the trees to grow a bit more). Kitchen is well equipped and the laundry has a washing machine and dryer although there is also a washing line and things dry quick in the hot sun! Booking, check in and out was all very straight forward and easy. Lots of parking areas if taking vehicles to the island. Highly recommended.
