Spent 7 days here & Ellen was a saviour. Nothing was too much trouble for her & she had a great knowledge of the area. All her suggestions were excellent. The apartment was spotless, had everything we needed including a washer drier. As we had been travelling in Oz for a few weeks we had built up a fair bit...

My sister and I rented two bicycles at the hotel. It's good for going to the supermarket if you don't drive. Good to go around the small town leisurely. We did the laundry in our room. A small problem is there are ants in the kitchen and bathroom. There is a small barbecue stove, and we used it in the...

We spent our first night in Oz at the Half Moon Bay and I wish we'd stayed longer. Ellen and Rick, the owners, could not do enough for us. Even before we arrived they were great at providing information via email and remained just as helpful when we were there, helping to arrange transport on to our next destination. The...

Very nice apartments with lovely pool. Everything we needed for our 4 day stay. Yes, the property is on the flight path but we were not bothered at all by noise. I would advise that you need a car if staying here, as there is not very much going on in Yorkey's Knob itself and it's quite a walk to...

It has all the necessary amenites to get by (microwave, washer, dryer etc). we paid under $100aud per night which was outstanding value for money considering most motels charge around 120 so you won't find...
