We stayed here in August 2013 and where so impressed that we returned in April 2014. Gary is great and really ensures you have a great stay, if the weather is good, ask him for a ride out to Ball's Pyramid in his boat, the boat may look small but it is stable, very dry and fast! I love the polished floor boards as being on an island you do bring a bit of sand back with you at times so it is easy to keep clean, which by the way, is not the guest's problem as during our 9 night stay we were impressed by the daily sweep and clean of our apartment and even a mid stay linen change. There is also a guest lounge with heaps of DVD's to choose from to play on the provided DVD player in your own little lounge. Our room included a kitchen but with the great dining on the island it was only used for breakfast and a couple of times when we cooked some freshly caught Kingfish on the lovely BBQ facilities provided. What I like about Beachcomber lodge is how small it is, you really feel like you are just staying in a big house rather than motel style accommodation. Only downside if you like to sleep in is that the wood floors tend to echo a bit, I am an early riser so just ensured I walked out with my socks on and then put my shoes on outside at the steps to the garden
