My wife and I, together with 2 other couples, stayed at the Villa Cavour for 3 nights.
What a great place to stay!!! Mara and Rocco are great hosts - Mara is the outgoing up-front hostess, and Rocco supports her with his great cooking.
You must have a meal at night cooked by Rocco- the main course is great and the desserts are to-die-for!!!
The rooms are comfortable and well appointed.
The B&B is situated in Point Vernon which is at the northern end of Hervey Bay, but it is only a short drive to many restaurants and attractions.
Mara is able to book tours to Fraser Island and whale watching - we took both her recommendations and we were not disappointed.
We can recommend both the Boat Club (south part of Hervey Bay) and the RSL Club (close to B&B) for good dinners/drinks.
Highly recommend this B&B for 1 to 3 couples.

Room Tip: All rooms upstairs are the same.

Thank you very much Richo for your review. It was great to have you and your friends around for few days. I noticed that you all are very good friends each others and I suppose this friendship is going for long time. That's a very good thing and a precious treasure to keep. All the best for all of you.

Mara and Rocco are wonderful hosts. Mara was extremely helpful in organizing some day trips for us. We went to Fraser Island and Lady elliot island and had an awesome time. The cooked breakfast was great . We really felt at home. Till now my daughter tells me she misses auntie Mara and uncle Rocco and she wants to go back. We had dinner (all 3 days) and really enjoyed the food. Rocco is indeed a great chef and we love having him share stories with us. Thank you once again for such a memorable stay.

We visited Hervey Bay for family reasons and chose Villa Cavour as it was close to our relatives. What a lovely, clean, exceptionally friendly, quiet, relaxing setting. From the time we made our booking to the minute we left Mara made us feeling very welcome. The Villa was good value for money; Mara provided a tasty continental breakfast and we slept well. Next time we visit Hervey Bay we are determined to try Rocco's cooking. Thanks

We came from a terrible time at Kingfisher Bay resort. We left there a day early as we could no longer stand it and gave Villa Cavour a call. We already had a night booked, and asking to stay the night before as well was no trouble at all for Mara. We sorted out an arrival time and we were greeted by her daughter who showed us to our amazing rooms.

We were blown away, it was so clean and so comfortable! We wanted for absolutely nothing. Chilled water in the fridge ready to drink, all kinds of tea and coffee bags, and a big beautiful bed. We were so happy we almost cried.

If you're thinking about going out for dinner, don't. Stay in, the food is wonderful. We especially recommend Rocco's seafood risotto, they also make delicious home made pasta. Also, the breakfasts are delicious.

We cannot say enough nice things about this place, it was truly a lovely experience.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Red Room, but I'm sure the others are just as lovely.

Dear Sophie and Nicholas,
thank you very much for your kind review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Cavour., especially after a not too good experience in another venue.We hope you are both feeling better now and you will remember Hervey Bay and the Fraser Coast for the good two days, at the end or your vacation, at least. All the best.
Mara & Rocco.

Probably the best B&B we have stayed in. Lovely house in a great location. Spotlessly clean with a great bed, nice en-suite too. The breakfast, both cooked and continental, were excellent. We had an evening meal on both nights which was superb and great value for money too.
