LIKE HEAVEN ON EARTH

Absolutely Brilliant" is the way to describe our stay. We spent three nights Glamping. Our hosts Lyndie & Carl are two of the nicest, friendliest people you will ever meet, nothing is a problem for them & they are happy and very attentive to their guests without being overbearing. They both a have a great sense of humor & their knowledge of the local area & secret spots on the island is second to none. The location is something out of a "castaway movie set" or documentary with gorgeous sandy white beaches,rolling mountains for hiking and crystal clear water. The scenery & birdlife are stunning. There are some sensational walking tracks & the snorkeling on the reefs is amazing. Kayak hire & snorkeling gear is available for hire at a very reasonable rate. The tents were immaculately clean as well as the toilets and the camp kitchen,which overlooks the stunning beach. It is very well organised with fridge & cooking facilities & all utensils. If you enjoy, swimming, snorkeling, hiking,reading or just want to relax on your own private beach and escape "the rat race" this is the place for you, We look forward to coming back. …

The highlight of our holiday

I felt very special being whisked away in our own private boat when Lindy collected us from the ferry. The beach kitchen was immaculate and very well equipped. Our studio apartment with views over the ocean was absolutely beautiful, decorated with Lindy’s artwork. My daughter and father-in-law stayed in the tents and were very comfortable. Strolls on the beach, sea kayaking, snorkelling on the reef and walking to local beauty spots kept as well entertained. I’m really interested in all things eco and so was fascinated by everything that Lindy and Carl had achieved on the island. We really enjoyed the kayaking trip that Lindy took us on and Carl’s extensive knowledge of the island. I can highly recommend - it is a VERY special place. Next time I’m staying for a week at the very least. …

Memorable stay

Spent 3 nights glamping and what a great time we had in such a serene setting.. Carl and Lyndie were terrific hosts, and we enjoyed some terrific walks around Great Keppel. Evenings were just as nice preparing dinner in the camp kitchen while watching the sun go down over the mainland. Three night's maybe not enough .. would happily do it again.

Paradise Personified

This is one for the bucket list and not to be missed. Commencing with a fun-filled informative boat trip aboard ‘Punch’ - the beautiful boat built by Lyndie and her father-in-law - this four day trip was a very special holiday. Svendsen’s Eco-retreat has the most idyllic of locations and we rented the house which is comfortable, spacious, well appointed and decorated with a fantastic array of paintings, drawings, carvings and other artworks that showcase the talents of mine hosts, Carl and Lyndie. We enjoy walking and thanks to the efforts of our hosts there are variety of well-marked scenic and challenging trails to be discovered immediately out the back door of the house. Svendsen’s Beach is an inviting stretch of sand straight out the front and a rock hopping adventure awaits in the form of Little Peninsula at the northern end of the beach. Carl and Lyndie love to share their knowledge of the island and with the benefit of their helpful advice pre-trip we came stocked with the requisite food and drink items to meet our needs. The final evening singalong overlooking the setting sun on the beach was a fitting finale before the boat trip back to the busy side of Great Keppel. You won’t be disappointed with this choice and you won’t find friendlier, more accommodating hosts. …

Svendsens Beach recent Stay March 2019

Outstanding location right on the beach with a northerly aspect which is really important around the Keppels. The anchorage is well protected with good holding if you take your own boat, though Carl and Lyndie also pick up visitors off the regular ferry to Keppel Island. The resort is very private with a self catering camp style kitchen right on the beach which makes for great beach parties and water activities in close proximty to those that just want to relax. Carl and Lyndie are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. There are several very interesting walks around the island including beach and bush. A great place to stay and one of the best on the east coast!
