Great place that easily accomodates large groups!

4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tiramula Lodge. It is in a great location with a bus stop down the end of the main street which makes getting around Magnetic Island a breeze if you need to use the bus services. The property is fantastic with full air-conditioning (a nice reprieve from the hot tropical weather and days exploring in the sun), a great deck, multiple fridges and other seating areas inside and outside. The pool is lovely however one recommendation would be to put up a shade sail over the pool as it was very hot (maybe they are waiting for the trees to grow a bit more). Kitchen is well equipped and the laundry has a washing machine and dryer although there is also a washing line and things dry quick in the hot sun! Booking, check in and out was all very straight forward and easy. Lots of parking areas if taking vehicles to the island. Highly recommended.

Great property

4 of 5
The property was a great little hideaway, perfect for 2 people. The location is perfect for accessing most parts of island by bus or car but is in a little black spot area so no phone reception or wi-fi provided, if that's important to you probably not the best fit but otherwise a great spot!
