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.

Perfect place to relax.

5 of 5
I was looking for a quiet place to relax for the weekend with our dog, but not too far from town. This was the perfect place, about 20 minutes drive to Hervey Bay, quiet when you got back. All amenities to cook and feel at home were provided. Our dog had full access to the outdoor area, and was free to explore the place. The owner Catherine and her family were mindful to give us our private space. Their dog Mitch was always ready to welcome us, and was a good companion for our dog Herbie. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a respite from a busy city lifestyle. Good value for money too.
