“Feels like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

This house is wonderful, you are made to feel like you're home from the second you step onto the property. It's clean, warm and comfy, and the host would be sure to give you the shirt off his back if he needed to. Though I didn't have a chance to interact too much with Mark myself, I know my partner was very fond of him, they chatted quite a bit about surfing and since we didn't have wetsuits with us he offered some up incase we wanted to go for a surf. We only stayed a night because we had a long drive from Sydney to SA but we are definitely looking to go back and know exactly where we'll be staying when we do :)

Not only is the house really comfortable with an authentic sea-side feel, it is worth staying here just to share a good old convo over a drink with Mark!

We rocked up here late one night looking for a decently priced place to crash and you wouldn't have known we were interrupting owner Mark's dinner. He made us feel instantly at home sharing food, drinks and recommendations, His son Darcy was also very polite, engaging in conversation and changed the TV just to suit our tastes. Best of all the mattress in our room was for me one of the comfiest I've ever slept on, and Mark has great taste in decor finding just the right balance.

We couldn't have asked for more.

Room Tip: We stayed in the double/queen bedroom with private ensuite in the main house.

We stumbled across the Mark's Flash Packers and Guesthouse in January. We were travelling as a group of 4; a couple and two friends, and stayed on one of the fantastic new rooms at the front of the accommodation which had a bunk bed and a double bed in the room. The room was extremely clean and well-equipped. The beds were comfy and there were some good tea and coffee facilities. Mark offered us a glass of wine as soon as we arrived, and we sat down and had a chat with him. He recommended the best places to eat in town (advise to go to eat early, as places close early). When we got back from dinner, we joined Mark and the other guests for some drinks out on the veranda.
In the morning, a light breakfast was included, and more chatting with Mark and the other guests.
As a whole, it was an extremely friendly experience, and we were made to feel at home and very welcome. This is why we chose to return a few weeks ago, in July. It was great to see Mark again. He remembered us, and we caught up over a bottle of wine. This time we were staying for two nights, and so were some of the other guests who we got chatting to. Between us, we decided that we would have dinner at Mark's the next night. The other guests ended up cooking a delicious roast, and we had a great Christmas in July with Mark, the Guests and some of the locals. A fantastic night had by all.
I would truly recommend this as a very friendly, clean place to stay - and excellent value for money!!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms out the front for a bit more privacy.

I have been bringing people to stay at the Port Campbell guest house annually for the past 6 years. Mark has always been extremely helpful and always made our stay a pleasure. Highly recommended!!

We happened upon the Flash Packers quite by accident, but we are so glad we did. Mark, our host was a laid-back and genial character, who showed us around and gave us a choice of a motel style room at the front of the property, or a choice of rooms inside the guest house. We chose the motel room, which was fabulous - clean and fresh and simple and summery. No frills accommodation, but so beautifully done. Breakfast is part of the deal, so we joined the other guests in the guest house for breaky the next morning. We were greeted by a fresh pot of coffee and a simple breakfast, which included fresh tomtoes grown by our host! It was great to chat to the other guests and in hind sight, we probably will stay in the main guest house next time...and I am hoping there will be a next time - we loved it! Ten out of 10 for the ambience of the property, and 10 out of 10 for our friendly and informative host.

We stumbled upon this place on busy holiday weekend and got last room. Brilliant place. Owner mark or Tribey as he is known, makes you feel so welcome. Facilities are fantastic and you really feel like you are at home. Great place to stay to experience real australian hospitality.
