Great family holiday spot

  • 5 of 5

The property met all our requirements - well-appointed, large enough for our extended family, clean and easy to keep that way, close to the beach, lovely grassed yard, quiet area, but best of all, an excellent pool and we were able to have our two dogs stay. We felt very comfortable at Driftwood and would like to return in the future.

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully maintained, large home great for family gathering or group of friends. The home is so inviting and plenty of room, the outdoor area is lovely. Our combined family had a lovely stay and plenty of cricket in the park next door with cheering from the balcony. Owners were lovely to deal with. Will definitely be back!

Highly recommended for a young family

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredibly lovely, we had the best time. The beach is in easy walking distance and perfect especially for young kids you don't want getting knocked over by surf. The pool was a huge hit as well. Only a 20 minute drive to Hervey Bay for activities. Thanks so much for having us, would stay again.
