Cozy Cabin with everything available

Harbourside was a great holiday park. It had everything we needed and access to more! We cooled off in the pool then enjoyed dinner in the bbq area. Staff were accommodating upon arrival and were constantly maintaining the cleanliness of the property. This is a fantastic place to stay.

Great value for money

We had an awesome time in our 1 bedroom self contained unit, although a little dated it is a peaceful and delightful haven to come back to. I wanted to make my partners favourite breakfast which required a frypan so the lovely camp owners kindly made sure there was one in the cupboard. I would love to stay there again and it is definitely Harbourside!

Dear anonymous guest, our advertisements do specify what we provide, and if you have not paid for a self-contained unit, then you do share the holiday park showers and toilets with other guests. All our furniture and beds for the units were bought new in December 2012. Our cleaners check the furniture and TV ( if the unit has one) and we have a notice in each unit asking you to report if anything is not working so that we can make it right. We have been getting many compliments on our grounds. I am sorry you were disappointed in your stay.

Nice place to stay

Pros: Good location and people friendly.
Cons: Possibly have a fan in the rooms as hot days and nights.
Location: Close to town, able to rent canoes on site. Walking distance to do cruises and other tourist activities( these were able to be booked at the office).
We stayed for two nights and found the kitchen cabin well equipped and spacious. It was within walking distance to town and right across from the water. The facilities were clean and well maintained and had a friendly atmosphere and was a quiet place to stay and great for children. Would recommend to others for a good break.
