We were very pleased about the location of the units, on the beach front. The units were well maintained but the owners were rude and intrusive. They ruined the experience and we were glad to get out. The husband was noted to watch like a guard from his balcony or stand like a sentry watching us talk to friends. We...

GENERAL Beautiful beachfront location approx. 20 mins. north of central Townsville. Rates are affordable and great value for families. This is a husband and wife operation - the wife was super accommodating and friendly... the husband not so much (drinking/anger management issues??). The beach is beautiful and clean... just be cautious if you decide to go swimming... we were told...

We selected an Ocean View which was a quiet magical spot. The units were a bit tired but they were spacious and clean. Went for several walks on the beach and these holiday units are right on the beach with nothing in between you and the beach. Great overnight stay on your way to your next destination. It is a...

Fantastic value for money units in an exceptional location. We had unit two which was very nice and extremely clean, whoever does the cleaning is doing a really good job! Able to check out a little later even though there were more guests coming in, very accommodating. Beach is wonderful!

Units are old and overpriced, not to mention the owners (the husband mostly) are the rudest people I have ever met! He sits on the second floor overlooking your every move. We stayed for a few hours but felt that uncomfortable that we asked the wife to be refunded- thankfully she agreed due to the actions of her husband and...

Only about 20km from Townsville, but you could be on a deserted island. Saunders Beach is a little known gem but well worth visiting. The units are clean and basic. Self contained is a huge bonus. Only problem, you are in the middle of the tropics, and you have to pay for air-conditioning!! This is ridiculous. Yes you have a...

Could only stay 2 nights but would love to stay longer. Very clean self-contained unit and good BBQ facilities in the well-kept gardens. Great pool (heated for winter use) and the ocean almost at your doorstep. Thoughtful and friendly hosts who go out of the way to make the stay an enjoyable experience. John & Marita.

It's been nearly 2 years but we have made our way back to Saunders Beach, and all of the great memories rematerialised. We never tire of the view from the front verandah of our unit or the kitchen table for that matter. It is 25 metres from the front door to the sand and depending on tides it can be...

I proposed to my wife here. It is a cliché, but the ocean views are stunning. At this time of year, the sea is an intense, deep indigo, as if the bleaching sun had drained all the blue of the sky into it, and a scatter of green islands are, but for the stingers, within swimming distance. Pale sand, the...

We have stayed there a few times now. Nev and Lee are great people, very friendly and helpful. They look after every need you have. People who put a negative comment about this place are mad. Yes they have small kids that play but thats what makes it a family friendly place. They entertained our kids for days on end,...
