We arrived after walking along the beach with our backpacks from the greyhound stop and were ecstatic to see a pool! Lovely and warm. The room was comfortable and nicely designed. Free wifi, a fridge in the room with a jug of cold water inside and tea and coffee! Would highly recommend staying here.

We're into our fourth day here and not anxious to leave. It's a clean and comfortable older style little motel in a tropical setting. The hosts are generous and most helpful. We have everything we need here at a very affordable rate. The beach is a short walk away as is a number of great eating houses.

Loved this motel - it was just a bit different to your usual motel. Danni was very friendly and accommodating. Nice area to cook and be social. Just across the road from the beach and nice and private.

This place was a tropical rainforest of paths leading to the rooms through lush trees and plants. It was a very reasonable 3 star oasis. At $95 for the night we couldn't have driven past. Yes its 3 star and older style, but that's what we liked. It may not suit everyone's taste. The rooms were dated but clean, tidy... More
