Oskars is a quirky large studio bedroom as part of a larger personality filled home nestled in a well cared for and lovely rainforest garden. This is the charm of Oskars, complete with chatty birds including cockatoos, curlews, chickens and more (bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper!). The home is located in the back of the Nelly Bay...

We spent a full week at Oskar's and enjoyed every minute of it. Since it was January, it was warm and humid, but the airy set up and ceiling fan above the bed ensured that the temperature was always comfortable. (The hottest part of the day we usually spent swimming or snorkeling.) The room is beautifully furnished with an eye...

Oskars is a wonderful place to enjoy the fantastic garden view and the wonderful native birds and animals.

I am so glad we discovered this little...

Located in the leafy outskirts of Nelly Bay and on the bus route, Oskars is a great hideaway for a couple. The room, bathroom and verandah are spacious, airy, comfortably and practically furnished. Just fly screens between the room and the outside was great for September weather. Gorgeous rainforest and mountain outlook from the verandah that includes outdoor dining and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
'A B & B with a view' REFURBISHED Oskar's is the only Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Nelly Bay. Oskar's only caters for 2 people at a time , we do not cater for children. Stay in a tropical architecturally designed large wooden Queenslander. In real terms Oskar's is a very large one bedroom unit with an expansive deck and endless stunning views of the rain forest garden we have created, Gustav Creek and the hills of Nelly Bay as a back drop. Oskar's has its own private entrance, own private verandah, a large bedroom with high cathedral ceilings and its own ensuite. We have combined our love of vintage Australian furniture, historical local original art works and photographs, with a touch of serene Asian influence of beautiful Thai silks. Paintings are all by local artists and reflect the beauty of the island. We offer our guests privacy. Oskar's Rainforest Retreat has some modern appliances like Air conditioning, Fan, TV, micro wave, jug, toaster, fridge. We provide a gourmet continental breakfast of cereals, toast, a platter fresh seasonal fruits, yoghurt and fruit juice with good quality teas and coffee. Guests can make at their own leisure whether it be for breakfast or brunch. We have hotel quality bed linen and towels, Oskar's is cleaned and serviced daily. The owners have lived on Magnetic Island for 26 years and have vast local knowledge of where are the best beaches and bays to visit, how to get there, where are the best walking tracks and the best places to eat. Oskar's provides an intimate timeless setting with an abundance of bird life, the occasional koala and a couple of resident wallabies, all our guests need to do is just relax and enjoy the view. If you like something out of the ordinary and enjoy the charms of a bygone era then Oskar's is for you. Named after the family Shih Tzu, your host Debbie looks forward to welcoming you. ... more   less
