This place is such a find. Debbie is amazing and makes you feel right at home while giving you your space. The place is in a great location and it is immaculate. We loved all the small details and the responsiveness of the staff. The veranda and outdoor kitchen made this place really unique. I am sure if every room has this so I would ask about this when booking if it is something you would prefer. We went to Fraser Is for the day and got stuck there (literally) and Debbie stayed in touch with us by phone until we were rescued. She was our lifeline to safety and we called her our angel. She is wonderful and obviously she takes care of her guests. This place is amazing for families like us or for a couple get away. We highly recommend this one!

We stayed for two nights and found Debbie to be very friendly and helpful. She pointed out a number of restaurants and things to see in the area. She upgraded our booking which was so nice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The verandah sitting area/kitchen was so cute and even though it was the winter season it was comfortable throughout the morning and night. Highly recommend this location!

Debbies place was the perfect choice to stay in Rainbow beach. There is not much to see, but Debbies' was worth staying there. I Had the best sleep during my whole trip. Big bed, nice furniture- everything was done very nicely. The rooms are equipped with everything you need, including towels and all that. I would definitly come back.

As soon as we walked in the owner was so sweet.
She was on the phone and was visibly busy but managed to acknowledge and let us know that she wouldn't be long. She wasn't on the phone for much longer.
When she finished, she sincerely apologised and explained that she had guests stuck on the island and that she really needed to sort this out before the last ferry left. She gave us the keys and showed us to our room and told us to come back and pay later.

While the room was nothing extravagant, it was more than I expected. It was self contained with all the cutlery and house hold items you would need.
Imagine a country home as a studio apartment and this is what we stayed in. It was really nice, clean and we felt like we were at home.
There was a nice BBQ area out the back where you could cook diner, sit there to eat and listen to the geckos sing.
There was no need to drag the cutlery and plates from your room as everything was out there too.

Across the road there was a supermarket, bottle shop, fish and chip shop and and Indian restaurant/takeaway.

It's not far, maybe a 2 minute drive (if that) to the main part of town where you could get everything you needed.

We enjoyed it here so much that we stayed an extra night.
The owner and her friend that run the place were so warm and friendly and could not do enough to help and that was evident as soon as we walked in.

We stayed in a King suite and it was quite comfortable. Debbie is a lovely host and certainly seems to go above and beyond to ensure her guests are happy. The decor is lots of baltic pine wood - very dated but some will think it is quaint. The ensuite was extremely tiny and had a very loud exhaust fan and a concertina door. No chance of a quiet wee in the middle of the night! Compared to the apartments we stayed at in other parts of our travels, this seemed very overpriced - but it may be that Rainbow Beach is more expensive (eg we stayed in a huge, luxury, modern waterfront apartment in Hervey Bay for the same price). We loved Rainbow Beach but would stay elsewhere next time.

Great, clean & spacious apartments with lovely patio, brilliant cooking facilities and just amazing host Debbie! Not only does she know all the good things to do and see around Rainbow Beach, she also helped us out when we broke down on Fraser Island with our rented 4WD...thanks again for that! Would have loved to stay longer!
Thanks again! Bridget & Simon from Germany
