“wonderful accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

The hosts, Robyn & Phillip, take care to make sure your visit is enjoyable; Robyn picks you up at the ferry and detours for some of the wildlife (koalas, butterflies & birds - the Island is blessed with beautifully coloured birds); she also takes you back to the ferry for departure. Their home is very comfortable and relaxing with a lovely garden, pool, dog, chooks and native birds you can hand feed; they make you feel at home and they obviously enjoy having visitors; breakfast is a treat and there are no time pressures to rise early. They are a mine of information about walks, places to eat and how to get there; the island is a gem, beautiful beaches, walks, wildlife and eateries. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Robyn and Phil couldn't have been more hospitable after a bad experience staying at other accomodation on the Island. We rang early in the morning, explained our 'urgent' need for accomodation that night and from that moment on our weekend couldn't have been more perfect. The house was clean and welcoming - a home away from home. The little touches such as the cakes (made available all day for guests to help themselves), the fresh flowers in the bathroom, the generous and delicious breakfast and the kind, genuine nature of Robyn and Phil made such a difference.

There are bicycles available for guests to borrow and Robyn and Phil are a wealth of information regarding the local hotspots and are more than happy to point you in the right direction. Beautiful and quiet setting with only the birds to wake you up in the morning.

It was easy to relax and enjoy our break away from our busy lives. Robyn and Phil were the perfect hosts and we will not stay anywhere else when we return to Magnetic Island.

Robyn is a lovely lady who runs a great b&b. You get service that you just don't get anymore. Lovely location, great brekkie, kitty the dog, who could ask for more. We had a lovely relaxing time. Gina and Dan Brady, Balmain, Sydney

Magnetic Island B&B is in a perfect accommodation in a perfect location to enjoy all that Australia has to offer. We had lorakeets eating out of our hands in the morning, saw koala bears in trees a 5 minute walk away, drove a short distance to feed wallabys, even seeing one with a joey! It was just a 15 minute walk to Horseshoe Bay with a beautiful beach and shops and eateries. Our room and bathroom were immaculate and breakfast on the veranda was delightful. The hosts, Robyn and Phil, know all about the island and were there to answer any questions we may have had. You can drive a few hours from there to go snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef which we did. All in all it was a fantastic vacation.

I can see why this place won a Trip Advisor award. The place is in a great location with easy access to the various splendours of Magnetic Island. The house itself is lovely, with a beautiful garden setting, lovely area to eat breakfast, and clean and tidy rooms. The breakfast is to die for, and the cakes and other goodies that are always available are divine. But above all Phil and Robyn are the perfect hosts. If you want and need space they give you plenty, but if you want to spend time with them and have fun (as we did on occasions) they are lovely people to be with. They are accommodating, helpful and a great joy to be around. Magnetic Island is a special place and this accommodation is special. I would go back any day.

What can I say.....but what a great stay we had here this past week. Beautiful b&b, the grounds, the accommodation and of course the hosts. Such a relaxing place to use as a base to explore the island. After a day out hiking, swimming, lunching etc, it was always a pleasure to go back to Phil and Robyn's place to relax. The rooms were comfy and roomy, bathroom pristine and huge, gardens and grounds beautiful and picturesque, the pool a lovely asset, the breakfasts unbelievable, all day availability of tea, coffee and cakes.....I could go on and on.
I think the piece de resistance though was the warmth and welcoming nature of our hosts, Phil and Robyn. Very special people who made us feel very much at home in their home. That was indeed the icing on the cake.
Thank you again Phil and Robyn for a memorable stay!

My (now) fiancee and I went to stay with Robyn and Phil on my Dad's recommendation and they weren't wrong.

I'd been planning a surprise proposal over the weekend, and Robyn and Phil bent over backwards to make sure the moment went off to a tee. From secret shopping the ingredients to preparing a surprise picnic on the beach, they were keen as anything to make the moment special. The moment was more than special, it was absolutely perfect. Try finding that kind of service at the travel inn...

The house is absolutely immaculate, the rooms spacious and the surrounds serene and relaxing.

Robyn's breakfast is a sight to behold... a generous spread of fresh fruit, followed by a choice of hot breakfast or muesli. I didn't bother with the muesli but dove straight into the fresh breakfast; beautifully presented, generous portions and cooked to absolute perfection.

There are bikes available for use which is really handy; horseshoe bay is only a 5 minute cycle away (which helps burn off some of the indulgent breakfast...) so you're within easy access of the beach.

Robyn came and collected us from the ferry port and dropped us back off there at the end of our stay which was really helpful, and avoids the cost of bus or taxi transfers.

With everything that's included in the price, you could still pay $200.00 a night and feel like you'd received excellent value for money.

All in all, I really can't give this place a good enough review. Robyn & Phil helped me execute the PERFECT romantic weekend away and provided the perfect base camp from which to explore the island, all topped off with a generous helping of luxury and comfort.

Oh, and the complimentary cakes (available all day) were amazing. If www.ratemycarrotcake.com existed, I'm certain Robyn's would be winning awards!
