We stayed here with two couples and loved it. Margaret gave us a warm welcome and is a very loving person. The rooms are spacious and spotless. The pool is nice and refreshing. There is a big kitchen or lounge area if you dont want to sit on your balcony. But having breakfast on that balcony is great! The beach...

Gorgeous old Queenslander House that has been covered to a B&B. Still has the lovely polished timber floors and a great verandah. Rooms are excellent - private ensuite, private piece of the verandah, plenty of room and a decent little kitchen setup. And if you want to spread your wings there's a great communal kitchen area, as well as a...

We were welcomed straight away by the absolutely lovely Margeret, she was so friendly and couldn't do more to make us feel at home. The room was spacious, clean and had everything you could possibly need, even a torch for your walk to the restaurants in the dark. The breakfast was fabulous and is left outside your room so you...

We just want to say thank you again to our fantastic host Margaret who every day left an amazing tray of brekkie goodies in front of our door :-) This is a 100% recommended stay. Only 5 or less mins walking distance to the beach, excellent room, bed and your own bathroom. Everything as described. Totally worth the money.

The B&B is a great place to stay for a relaxing visit on Magnetic Island. Margaret, the owner, is absolutely lovely and prepared the most delicious and filling breakfasts for us. The rooms are quiet and have a private balcony as well as a small kitchen area and separate toilet and bathroom. The location is very convenient since the busstop...

The B&B is located just a 5 minute walk from the seafront at Horseshoe Bay and a minute from the bus stop. We had a lovely quiet room at the back of the property but I'm sure all are quiet as there is little passing traffic at night. The room was huge with kettle, toaster and a microwave. Several types...

My friends and I came out from New Zealand to participate in the Groovin The Moo festival in Townsville. We stayed at Magnetic Sunsets B&B for a few nights and had the whole house to ourselves. Loved the kitchen, the backyard pool, and seating areas around the house. The wildlife surrounding the property is incredible - kangaroos, toads, kookaburras, stalks...

I loved this B&B: luxurious and quite room equipped with everything you need, great breakfast, perfect host. Margaret was very friendly and helpful, showed me the rock-wallabies, let me have a shower (after checkout, before leaving in the afternoon) and brought me back to the ferry. Very much appreciated, especially as solo-traveler.

This is our third stay at Magnetic Sunsets B&B. As always, Margaret is the perfect host for a quiet get away. The breakfasts are amazing and, being a kid free zone, the serenity is much appreciated. We will definitely be back next year.

I booked this b&b not knowing what to expect. I found it a bit dear seeing the nightly rate. However after staying here I understand why the rate is the way it is. The amount of love and care the owner is putting into each room is mind blowing. Everything is spotless and nicely decorated and cozy. The breakfast served...
