I would have to agree with the previous reviewers of Modras it is a great place to stay and the owner is very friendly and easy going.

We pulled up with our caravan and got a great spot next to the house. Two minutes to the beach and a 1km walk to town. We walked along the beach to get an ice cream. Damien is a great ambassador for this awesome coastal town and can get you excited about visiting any where in Tumby.

Great place to stay. Everything that we need is provided. The units are clean and the bed is very comfortable. I love the bathroom/laundry. The surrounding garden is beautiful. Two minutes walk to the beach. Love it.

The apartments are in a quiet area of town with not much traffic around. The rooms are good and the kitchen area has everything you might want, although it is only a short walk into town with lots of facilities.

We have returned several times to these apartments over the past ten years, finding them to be the best we have encountered in Australia for privacy, quietness, amenities and facilities..... and only 100 metres from one of the most delightful fishing spots on the Eyre Peninsula.
