5 Friends catching up in the most perfect surroundings. We have returned to this resort a number of times over the years and it still remains the best destination to chill out. We stayed in unit 20 and the views are amazing.Thoroughly recommend and we will definitely be back.

This was my first visit to Stradbroke Island & I really enjoyed it. The resort is located just up the hill from the magnificent beaches, The Gorge Walk, Surf Club & a little shop precinct. We stayed in one of the rooms with ocean views which was nothing short of spectacular. The 3 bedroom was very comfortable & very neat....

This was my first trip to Stradbroke Island. A group of us stayed for the weekend in one of the Garden/National Parkside apartments. We were lucky and had a partial view of the beach and ocean which was beautiful. The location is brilliant, close to The Gorge Walk at Point Lookout which is a must do for sure. We saw...

Although we were not side by side the resort is set out so none of the apartments are very far away from each other, so for us it was ideal. There was a fairly big difference between each of the apartments we had booked. Our unit...

First impression when I walked through the door: outdated. First of all, there were horrendous yellow curtains throughout the apartment, all of which were extremely dusty. So much that the dust and dirt was visible and looked like they hadn't been washed in years. The fans in our bedroom were COVERED in a thick coat of dust. So much that...
