We spent 4 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment at the resort. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable with great Ocean Views. Peter the manager and his wife are a lovely couple, very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed walking to the local restaurants and shops. Its an easy jog down to the beach where a beautiful board walk offers...

Recently took a large group to Stradbroke Island and stayed in 2 of the larger units. Very clean, well appointed, and lacked for nothing. Perfectly positioned with gorgeous view of main beach. Comfy beds & loads of room. Definitely recommend. Like most places on Straddie, the mosquitoes come out at night, so take repellent.

Stayed for 4 nights in a high level 3 bedroom apartment. There were only 2 of us but they just closed off the other bedrooms. That meant that we had an amazing view over the water. Even saw humpback whales offshore! The apartment was just great with a full kitchen, lounge and a great balcony to sit and enjoy the...

Took family from Melbourne to North Straddie with a 1 year old. Sharon at Samarinda was very helpful, and provided cot and high chair (for fee). Apartment was beautiful, clean, large, well equipped. Amazing views of the Point Lookout life saving club and ocean. Short walk to coffee shop. Loved our time away.

As soon as we got off the ferry we were in holiday mode. Staff at Samarinda were very welcoming. Our apartment opened onto a balcony that overlooked the surf-club and main beach. Ideal location, a 5 minute walk to the shops and restaurants and, more importantly, the gelati shop. I'd definitely stay here again

We booked a 2 bedroom for 2 couples. Each bedroom had a nice outlook to the sea and the beds were very comfortable. The lounge room was well furnished and with lots of books, puzzles and games it would be great for the family. The kitchen was also well laid out with lots of plates and cutlery too. It did...

We were invited as a group for a Straddie weekend. The chosen accommodation was Samarinda. We arrived after hours but the keys and relevant info was all well organized for each family. The rooms were quite clean and pleasant. We had a double storey 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. Fully equipped with all that you need. We had some trouble...
