I wanted a destination that was not too far away so I could make it a weekend escape and not a weekend of driving. It took 1.5 hrs from the Gold Coast. I wanted to go 'overseas'. We took the car on the car ferry across the Coral Sea (5 mins) to Coochimudlo Island.
I wanted a place where the dogs would be welcome. We brought the parrot too! I wanted a place where the kids wouldn't ask for the IPad. The accommodation comes complete with a wardrobe of dress-up costumes, games, books and cuddly toys.
I wanted a farm stay...but also the beach...so I got a farm stay on an island with great beaches. I wanted a place where I could chillax. The girls have been sooooo busy having fun that I've been free to do my thing.
We cruised the full collection of Quirky Cottages (7 train carriages and three houses), and I let the girls choose the one they liked the best. They chose the Jeanie Carriage which has maximum BLING; pink, purple and lots of mirrors to show the best angle of each little princess.
There's a full kitchen, huge shower, separate toilet and separate master bedroom and a private, fully fenced raised, baby-safe verandah. And a laundry!
It's NOT 5-star posh but it IS a 5-star family friendly, pet friendly beach farm stay with very happy rescue animals that are well behaved (apart from the table dancing goat).
If you want to build memories with your children, then this is THE place to come!
