We thoroughly enjoyed our months stay at George and Pen's cosy flat in natural surroundings. Facilities were good and the shower fantastic.

George and Penelope were great hosts. They even left us fruit bread, butter and milk, so we weren't hungry after a late flight in. They were very flexible with check in and out times too. The place has everything you need and a lovely garden surrounding it. It's close to the be…

We had such a great stay at Pen and George's. 2 mins from the beach with a nice pub (happy hour 4-6 was great!). Only 20 mins to most other popular places on the island by bus. Really lovely hosts offering a great little space :)

Picnic Bay, QLD, Australia

We are a 3 minute walk to glorious Picnic Bay Beach - a really nice swimming beach. In summer the local council puts up a stinger-free enclosure.

The bus stop is on the way to the beach. The bus wi…

Getting around

We live less than a 5 minute stroll to the bus stop. Sunbuses run pretty regularly and will take you to all the populated bays. There's usually a timetable in the flat. Tickets are inexpensive and to…
