What a beautiful setting. Sit on your own verandah eating breakfast and watch the turtles swim toward you. Also plenty of bird life in a peaceful setting. Our only disappointment was in the cleaniness of the room, but that was quickly rectified. Our hosts were friendly, easy to talk to and very accommodating. We went on a two day tour to Fraser Island and we had split our accommodation nights. As they had availability they offered our luggage and car to stay at the cabin. Greatly appreciated.
