Paul and Susan are great hosts and were very friendly booking a couple of tours for us
I would say that the villa we had was a little disappointing in terms of size of the pool
The one advertised on the website looks a lot bigger and there was nowhere to sit and relax by the pool in the sun unless you wanted to be splashed by who ever was in the pool
The garden is literally the pool and the narrow walkway around
The two sun beds literally squeezed into the walkway round the pool
The villas itself was very clean and had all the facilities you would need - 3 toilets was a bonus
And 2 bathrooms
Maybe a foot rest for the two armchairs would have been good
Th laundry facilities were good - maybe a slightly larger clothes dryer would have been helpful
Location wise - despite being close to captain cook highway it was peaceful
Not being on the main front was not an issue
- it is a pleasant 10 minute walk at the most to the front where there was a good selection of restaurants

... the rainforest and castle ruins told the story of a Spanish pastry chef, Jose Paronella, who dreamed of building a castle similar to what he had seen in his homeland. He built his fortune trading in sugar plantations and purchased the 13 acre site. Initially he built a cottage for his family and then started work on the castle which included a ballroom/theatre, a grand staircase down to refreshment rooms, tennis court and fountain. It had its ...
... couldn't believe that people were going in that water- at night!!- but they did. They brought florescent lights with them and it caught all the phosphorus in the water and glowing creatures- I'm sorry I didn't dive at that moment. Magical. The sharks, fyi, just swim away- they are not really interested in people. Calvin actually followed one for a while. It was just a once in a lifetime kind of thing! We don't have many pics, because we didn't do the underwater thing- ...
Well, we decided to take the day trip to the Outer Barrier Reef. The weather looked perfect and we had clear blue skies all day. The sea was very rough on the way out. It is a 45 min journey from the island to the reef. I would think that at least a third of the people on the boat were sea sick. Moira was fine until just before we docked then she was sick, Shame really she felt a little tender for the rest of the day, ...
... that really stole the show - I like my food, but I've always been of the opinion that there is only so far you can take it in terms of enjoyment. I now willingly accept that I was wrong. The food here was on another level. After dinner, we wandered through town and then back up to the apartment where we chilled out for the rest of the evening. We were going to watch a film but my iTunes account glitched and left us having to stream some TV ...
... a friend from our Fraser Island trip. Yesterday (Easter Sunday) we had another early start to get picked up for our day trip to the Atherton tablelands. Our guide was Wade and he was really funny and very knowledgable about the area. He took us to some cool waterfalls even the one where Peter Andre filmed mysterious girl and Dan did a nice re-enactment of the video which I did get pictures of and will put on Facebook because they are hilarious! It was a really ...
