I can honestly say we have never stayed in a place quite like this & I mean this in a good way ;-)
We stayed for just 2 nights & opted for a motel style room, although there are some wonderful free standing 1 & 2 bedroom fully self contained villas available. Our room had been recently renovated, new carpet, new bed with quality linen, new air conditioner, freshly painted & spotlessly clean. In our room was a microwave, toaster, jug & a small table & chairs should we have wished to dine in our room. We were also provided with free wifi.
The grounds are amazing, the owners, Helen & Dick have created lots of little private shady nooks with tables & chairs & have added some quirky little touches like a beach area with deck chairs & "Brightonesque" murals on their tin shed. There is also a swimming pool on site. There are BBQ facilities provided & a communal eating area should you wish to "throw a shrimp on the barby" & dine al fresco.
Boyne Island Motel & Villas is situated just a few steps from the Boyne River, ideal for fishing & kayaking or just exploring the area via the walking tracks or boardwalk.
Now to the important stuff - The facilities within the motel, pale into insignificance once you've experienced the hospitality of "mine hosts" Helen & Dick.
For us it all seemed to be a case of right place right time, so no guarantees that this will be your experience:
We arrived late afternoon, State of Origin night, we were driving a car with NSW number plates, we were in Qld.(gulp). We checked in, noticed blue jersey on wall in reception area (sigh of relief). Helen & Dick had originally come from NSW.
Dick had had a reasonable crab catch that day & was keen to share his culinary skills, which proved to be a little unorthodox (there was a gas ring, a wok & a half beer keg involved).
We were invited to join Helen, Dick, their friends & other guests to a wonderful dinner of delicious crab chowder. What a great night (despite our football loss)!
We have never experienced such genuine hospitality ever before during our travels, worldwide.
Well done, Helen & Dick, you've created something really special on Boyne Island.
