We had an amazing experience at The Blue Ocean View Beach House! The house was clean, well stocked and the buggy was just fantastic! It really was a home away from home with a perfect view. We used the resort facilities constantly with the kids and also did a lot of for wheel driving exploring the Island. We can't wait to go back and highly recommend it to anyone wanted a real holiday. Thank you so much to Melissa and Howard for all their hospitality, great advice and helpful tips. We couldn't have had a better time.
Loved the house, the view and everything about tangalooma island was great! Can't wait to come back again!
Thank you Howard and Melissa for enabling us to have a fantastic holiday. The service we received was 100% and it was a pleasure to be in contact with you. The home was extremely well designed to maximize the views, was very functional and had everything to ensure a perfect stay. Couldn't pick a better location! Everything was fabulous and we had a wonderful time - we will be back for sure! Calvin and Eniko
Response from the owner Thanks so much for the fabulous review Eniko and Calvin. It was really great to meet you both and hopefully we can catch up in the future at one of Calvin's musical performances, he is such an amazing guitar player!
“Outstanding accommodation with amazing views”
We couldn't have stayed in a better place. From all the information and help both Howard and Melissa provided prior to our stay, to the most amazing house. The house was very modern, amazingly well equipped, and made our break all the more enjoyable. We could not recommend the Blue Ocean View Beach House any higher. Thank you and we look forward to returning in the near distant future.
Response from the owner Thanks so much for the fab review, we'd love to have you come and stay again in the future!
“Special Family Holiday”
My family has just had the most amazing relaxing holiday at the Blue Ocean Beach House at Moreton Island. We are a family of 8 adults & the house was incredible. So spacious, everything we needed was there. The owners were so friendly & obliging. They make you feel as if you are family, nothing was a problem for them. The house was extremely clean & the beds were so so comfortable. The view from the huge veranda was breathtaking. The golf buggy provided was the icing on the cake. We are planning to return again in the future.
Response from the owner Thank you very much for the great review, you guys are welcome anytime. I agree it's a great place to get together and enjoy with family and friends. Don't work too hard now!
“Blue Ocean Brilliance”
This was our 6th stay and as it has been previously the case we loved the house and location. Clean and very functional. Great value if you value rest, peace and calm.
Response from the owner Thanks Mark for the very kind words, you had such amazing weather too! See you and the family in 2014!
Great service, fabulous home, which was very well equipped and appointed. Fantastic location with breath-taking 270 degree views. Quiet and private with access to all resort amenities.
“Wonderful house with lots of activities supplied”
The house was beautiful, with plenty of room for our family of 6. Lots goodies in the garage to save us money ie snorkle gear, sand boards, golf buggy and beach towels. The view was amazing! The resort is very close and you can use all the facilities. But the resort is very expensive! Try to take all your food and drink with you. Loved the house, the view and the beach but wasnt a fan of the resort itself.
“Fantastic property with views to die for!!!”
This house totally exceeded every expectation I had. After many years of camping on moreton and having small children I decided no way was I camping again. I invited my parents along with us and we had the most fantastic holiday. The buggy was perfect for getting the kids ( along with boogie boards, float toys, eskys etc) to the pool and beach. Everything was so well set up in the house, my son loved that he could play his new x box games while we enjoyed a drink or 2 on the balcony watching the cruise ships go by. A few of us went on the quad bikes at tangalooma and it was the best fun except now my husband wants to get our son one. My only complaint was that we weren't there long enough. I will definitely be going back!!!
“Beautiful holiday house”
The view from the house is superb, as many people have noted below. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the resort, but it is only a short walk down steep stairs or a buggy ride away for an emergency ice cream! We came on foot, and the resort minibus was at the jetty to pick us up when the Tangalooma Flyer dropped us off. We got to the house easily and found it sparkling clean. The living area is very large, and suitable for a large family with plenty of seating and 2 living areas. The kitchen is large and very well equipped: Large pot to cook pasta, plenty of glasses, plates and cutlery, everything you need to cook and bake if you are so inclined. We brought all our food over and were happy to have done so: there was nothing tempting at the resort's food outlets (they don't qualify as restaurants!). Anyway, why would we have gone elsewhere than the house and its perfect outdoor seating area on the deck? The gas barbecue was also very clean and in perfect working order.All beds are very comfortable with excellent bedding (not the king of short sheets you find in so many hotels or holiday accommodation...). Dvds, Xbox and games kept the children entertained in the morning while we were lazily trying to resist the sunrise. The electric buggy is very convenient, and we were always happy to go back up the hill in comfort, especially after a long walk on the beach at the end of the day. There were 3 scooters in the garage, as well as cricket bats and trucks. All were used and kept children happily busy. Next time, we will bring a 4WD to explore the island further. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Howard called to check that we had everything we needed, and Melissa let us store some luggage at the house while we enjoyed our last day on the island.
Response from the owner Thanks so much for the lovely comments, we are really glad that you enjoyed your stay.
