“Heaven by the beach!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

My family have been here 3 times already and I decided to check this place out for myself. It's even more amazing then words can describe. I had the most wonderful time and ended up spending most of my time at Barrier beach. Everything you need is there and it is so relaxing.
>food: AMAZING
>staff: super friendly and welcoming. nothing was too much trouble and they were always smiling.
>facilities: clean, beautiful, comfy, relaxing and well done
>the beach right at your door step is perfect and the fish! wow the most amazing snorkeling!
best holiday ever. Thank you so much!! See you next year :)

Room Tip: Villa 1 and 3 are the best - they are private and you can see the beach. Villa 2 gets some noise fro...

I will begin by saying that Shendel and Shane our hosts were two of the most down to earth people you would ever meet They made us feel at home from the start and this continued for the duration of our stay. The staff, Flavia and Sophie were delightful with nothing being too much trouble. The meals provided in the evening were nothing short of amazing and at reasonable prices. Shane and Shendel made a point of talking to each guest at breakfast, lunch and dinner to see how our adventures turned out and to help organise new ones. The waterfront lodgings were comfortable and spacious with the soothing sounds of the water to lull you to sleep. There was plenty of nice snorkelling spots and dugongs and turtles to see if you are quick enough.
All in all just a perfect holiday and we will definitely returning for a second helping.

Room Tip: We stayed in fare 1 and loved the closeness to the water.

We had an absoloute ball on our honeymoon. Couldn't have asked to stay at a better place. Shane, Shendell and the staff were extremely accommodating and always had an idea of what to do and see. Food was great, snorkeling on the reef at your doorstep, friendly community, awesome fishing and just a beautiful island. Highly recommend!

What a supreme gem, where do you start, an absolutely fantastic resort incredible service on every level. My wife and I stayed at the Barrier Beach House for four nights (not long enough) in March. In all our extensive travels this has to be the best kick back place ever. Such a wonderful outlook located on a beautiful beach overlooking a stunning lagoon. Shendel was the perfect hostess (Shane was away in Australia) admirably supported by Flavia and Ivana. The meals were scrumptious and we loved the menu style set up. Lovely comfortable Fare attractively situated and camouflaged by threes with beautiful lagoon views and very well kept landscaped stunning grounds maintained by John and the boys. The dedicated staff make the place feel like 'home away from home'. No request seems to be too difficult to fulfill; we were never disappointed. A special thanks to Rob and Anita for their informative and great travel discussions. We thank the whole staff for once again making our stay unforgettable.

We stayed at Barrier Beach House with our best friends. Shendel and
Shane are the ultimate hosts and their latest Tripadvisor gong is extremely well deserved. Flavia mixes the best caprioska I have ever had and she and Sophi cook lovely meals with the widest smiles. To lie in bed with the shutters on the fare open looking at the turquoise sea and listening to the quite shuffle of the waves is absolute bliss. The water is so warm and crystal clear on your doorstep, it beckons you in. We can't wait to return and are already planning on the next visit. It truly is a paradise - we couldn't think of any way to improve on the experience.

Room Tip: Fares 1 and 2 have the best view. Three new fares being built will have a plunge pool.

Hi Wendyj157,

So pleased to hear that you had such a great time. It was an absolute pleasure having you all stay with us. It was a fun week and yes, I agree, Flavia is definitely the best cocktail maker around. Although it did almost kill me watching you all partake whilst I drank my Soda Water....CRUEL!!

Hopefully we'll see you back here sooner rather than later.

Cheers,
Shendel
