Great Little House!

5 of 5
My family had a very enjoyable time at this home. Close to a great Italian restaurant we went to twice along with the Australian cuisine restaurant with massive portion sizes. A nice beach for the kids and local shops for everyday items or just down the road and the tourist shops are just within 5 minutes. If Hervey Bay becomes our go to holiday destination I hope to stay here again.
