Pete is awesome, great views and lovely modern houses. Well furnished, comfortable and breath taking views. Look one way and you're faced with a stunning forest, and the other direction has the beautiful blue sea.
Views are the best you can have - so quiet & away from the hustle & bustle of Main St. The setting is perfect. Great value for money & can sit & watch sunrise/ sunset with the majestic view of the fabulous Whitsundays but wouldnt want to walk to the top of the hill! Thanks Pete!
My wife an I are Brits and we had a 2 week roadtrip booked to Queensland - starting in early May 2020. We had our flights booked (since Oct 2019) and we had pre booked various accommodations in QLD - including this place for a few nights. The booking conditions were that it we cancelled after a set date in March 2020 then there would be a cancellation fee equal to the full cost of the accommodation charge. Due to COVID19 the UK warned against all non essential travel outside the UK + Australia introduced a mandatory 14 day self isolation for arrivals into Australia. Both these announcements were issued AFTER the cut off date for our cancellation charge. We duly cancelled - what else could we do???? Pete the owner has duly charged our credit card with the A$ 317 cancellation fee - TWICE. Yes, twice - so a cancellation fee of A$317 has turned into A$634. This has wiped out a refund from another accommodation in QLD that had quite rightly issued a refund to us - and leaves us with a debit balance on our credit card. My wife has spoken on the phone to Pete ( calling from the UK) TWICE explaining what has happened and urgently requesting refunds. Each time he has said he will look into and e- mail us. We have heard nothing back from him despite chasing. What an awful attitude from him - we had NO OPTION but to cancel - he has not empathy for our situation. Unbelievable attitude from him - charged a cancellation TWICE when, given the circumstances, he shouldn't have even charged it once. Due to his refusal to communicate with us we now have to contact our credit card company and the Australian authorities.…
We loved our stay at this retreat it's the perfect place to isolate at this present time. The views are breathtaking and the facilities are just right and Pete really looked after us, nothing was a problem and he was kind enough to drive us from the shopping centre. The pool, lounge and deck area were perfect for relaxing and looking at the ocean. This was the perfect getaway for us and we will be back.
Pete was a champ. Very friendly, funny & even offered to take our photos. This hidden gem is perfect for those couples wanting to get away from the kids for a night or two or just to spend quality time together. We can’t believe we weren’t aware of this place whilst living in Airlie a year ago. The view is also stunning.
