“Comfortable - met needs”
Reviewed 16 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I stayed at this property with my sister and husband as part of our tour of Queensland. This is the last house at the end of a dirt track - rental car owners be wary. The bedrooms are fine but if you want to go to bed early the neighbours daily annoying guitar strumming will keep you awake until 10pm. There is no WiFi and the WiFi at the Information Centre is painfully slow. There are plenty of DVDs books and a large television in the eclectic decor mix lounge although views from the property are lacking any dynamics. It is ideally placed for access to the town and walks.

Thank you for staying with us.
We are sad that our views are not dynamic enough for you, but most of our guest enjoy the semi rural views. This is not a beach or lakesite property.
Sorry to hear that there was a party in the neighborhood , you should have rung us or the police to file a noise complain.It is usually a very quite neighborhood.
The access road is a council maintained town road and not a 4 WD track. Your claim about possible problems with hire cars is a bit far fetched.

What a find! Such a homely spacious house with everything you will ever need. Big verandahs both front & back. So peaceful & quiet with lovely views across the green paddocks. Within walking distance to all the lovely restaurants Yungaburra has to offer. A great place to unwind.
