Kellys travels
A 30 minute ferry ride from Rosslyn Bay and you arrive on the sands of Great Keppel Island. They meet you and take your luggage to a storage shed. You then go to hotel reception and register and whether or not your room is ready you can fill in time looking around the area. Got into our room before 12 a nice cabin overlooking the water. Neat and clean it had all we required for a three night stay. We took our own food to cook and eat. No stovetop only a microwave and electric frypan, which was fine. Also a full size fridge. The resort also had a restaurant where you could eat and drink if you didn’t want to bother with cooking. The water was crystal clear and safe swimming. Lots of walking tracks and snorkeling or other water activities for us to do. All in all just sat back and relaxed listened to the silence.

An off the beaten track island holiday that escapes the crowds. Very relaxing atmosphere and bar and bistro service was excellent and great food. Parked at the recommended security car park providing great drop-off and pick up service to the ferry.

It was great- very relaxed, beachside, as advertised. Appreciated the communal kitchen facilities here, and the staff were super friendly and gave great advice with regards to how to spend our time.

The staff at Hideaway were brilliant - so friendly and helpful. The location right above the beach was spectacular and excellent for families and kids. The cabin was very basic, minimally equipped, and small, but perfectly fine for a small family's use. A magical family holiday - thanks for making us so welcome!
