We had a wonderful week at Leith's with our three kids (aged 7 and under). The accomodation was great, the island was wonderful, and the weather treated us very well! Leith answered all my questions promptly and helped with the booking in any way possible. I would note that the shop on the island is really only stocked with limited basic items, and shouldn't be relied on for supplies, but if you plan ahead and take what you need you shouldn't have any problems! We hired bikes and spent every day riding around, exploring and taking advantage of the activities the resort offered, swimming at the beach, and enjoying the wallabies. We are already planning our return trip next year!

What a great place for peacefulness yet loads of activities to keep the kids busy. Loved the fact you went everywhere by bike or walked and with no vehicles safe for the kids. Our oldest, who is nine went out on his own to join in the daily activities with the other kids. Highly recommended to anyone.

A lovely quite homely house in a jungle like environment! Very clean, well equipped spacious home for the family to get away life's busy role. Time to kick back and enjoy a comftable place where you can relax bye the pool with a beer or enjoy a few sets of tennis and a round of golf. Well worth the stay and we wished we could stay longer! thanks to leith for providing us a great break! Will recommend and return :)

We had a fantastic stay at Leith's place on South Straddie. The location is more peaceful and secluded than we had imagined. We were also very happily surprised by the quality and extent of the amenities available through the resort. Leith has bikes, and fishing rods to borrow which really added to the stay. Our three children had a fantastic time and the whole family had a great relaxing time. Only bit of advice is to take your Aerogard and apply it liberally before heading towards the sports centre! We will definitely try to come back for another stay.

I have always loved getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life on South Stradbroke Island. Experience the sense of serenity and timelessness on this unique sand island only 1 hour from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
