Clean, quiet with huge yard

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in July school holidays. 10 minutes drive to the performing arts centre. New shopping centre 3 minutes away. Family of 5 and a furbaby. Very clean and enough room for the teenagers to spread out. Thanks Robyn for letting us stay we will be back next year. Comfortable beds. My only suggestion would be an extra couch in the family room.

Unbeatable value

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Madora Bay. The home was neat, clean, a 5 minute walk to the beach and was big enough for our family of six to stay in. We stayed for 3 weeks and our children (aged 2,4,7,9) absolutely loved it. We went fishing or swimming at the local beaches everyday. Very affordable. Highly recommended.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Homely, comfortable with plenty of room for all, just a few minutes from the beach and about 5 minutes to a large shopping centre. Have stayed a number of times and the family always enjoys the freedom this house brings. House is always clean and the linens are of a good quality.
