We have just spent 2 nights at this wonderful property. We stayed in a queen size room with spa bath and sea views. The hosts Yvonne and Trevor made us feel very welcome and couldnt do enough for us without being obtrusive. We made full use of the pool and private beach and

Thank you so much 'Karen M' for your great review! We do love where we live and are happy when our visitors appreciate the property, the views and our hospitality too. "A change is as good as a holiday" is the saying, and, there couldn't be a more diverse contrast between the noise and bustle of life in highly populated areas, compared with our tranquillity, the natural environment and birdlife. People comment that they can't believe that Brisbane is so close - only an hour away. It's our privilege to host people who choose to stay here....thanks again. Wishing you both well. Trevor and Yvonne

Thank you Jiajia1013, for taking the time to write your Review of your stay in our Writers' Cottage, adjacent to the B&B. Comparing where you live, to here on our friendly and peaceful little island, we imagine would be a shock to those who haven't experienced 'natural Island' living. The birdlife is amazing and almost unafraid, the views and marine activities appealing....apologies 'tho that the crabs didn't jump into the pots you laid. Next time you come we'll take you out in our 2 person canoe to view the large numbers of different turtle species in our picturesque bay, and, hopefully the endangered Dugong too. We look forward to welcoming you and your wife another time and wish you much prosperity in your life together! Trevor and Yvonne

From the moment we arrived Trev and Yvonne spoiled us completely. Warm, friendly and great conversationalists with terrific stories swapped over a wine on the top deck. A delightful experience for the discerning traveler. We highly recommend the fruit parfait at breakfast.

Happy Greetings RidgeeDidge59, We read with delight your wonderful review for which we sincerely thank you.... knowing that you travel so frequently your words are much appreciated! Our life is full of unexpected pleasures - conversations with people like you and from all over the world, learning about their interests, activities and lives, provides us with entertainment in our otherwise quiet neighbourhood. Yes, we do love people and doing what we do is rewarding. Macleay Island is little known or appreciated by even Brisbane locals who are only an hour's easy travelling away. Yes, we enjoy a close supporting community, good sporting and social clubs and many artists, writers and creative people live and retire here. Yarrandabbi is a safe and comfortable island destination which to many is unique - so peaceful, safe, great seascapes and with so much colourful almost friendly birdlife. Wishing you both a healthy and prosperous future... Sincerely, Trevor and Yvonne Trevor and Yvonne

We loved our night away at this slice of heaven to get away from busy life and take in the quiet surroundings. Yvonne and Trevor were fantastic hosts and the 3 course breakfast was out of this world. My husband who is a chef was extremely impressed too! The rooms were very

We had the such a great experience while staying at Yarrandabbi Dreaming bed and breakfast. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. The owners Yvonne and Trevor made our one night stay (and my birthday) and the whole experience 100 percent better. I can't recommend this place

We loved hosting you both! Thank you for your nice review - we are very pleased that you enjoyed yourselves and your 'happy memory Birthday' Shoreh S. When next you visit, we'd encourage you to take out the large and stable 3 person canoe to see all the Turtle currently in our sheltered Bay...Trevor would even paddle you around if you'd prefer! Wishing you both all of the best and a great year ahead! Yvonne and Trevor
