  • Fraser Island Backpackers
    Hostels    Fraser Island, QLD

    log cabin style units at happy valley fraser island, probably some of best value for money on island as nothing on island is cheap. Ceiling fan, excellent pool on site, ensuite in rooms , comfortable beds, linen supplied, large fridge in rooms, shared kitchen with limited facilities, BBQ, fridge, stove top, no oven, toaster, cooking utensils and cutlery. Quiet and secluded cabins in natural bush setting, place to park car. great for families and suitable for couples without kids as quiet and peaceful

  • Kyamba Court Motel
    Motels    Mooloolaba, QLD

    great for couples with small one room motel rooms as well as couples with 1-2 kids in Mooloolaba on river with pontoon. Manger as very generous shared kitchenette outside with lots of cooking appliances such as microwave, sandwich toaster, fridge, toaster, kettle, electric frypan and cutlery, etc available for guests to use (usually motels do not include cooking facilities so this is a bonus and helps save money). Rooms are modern, clean with bar fridge, air-con. Prices about $150 peak season for family (manager is not too mean about having to pay extra for small kids when they can obviously share a bed when small, as other places often are). managers very friendly, great with kids (feeding fish with them) and give discounts to local aquarium attraction. Highly recommend, short walk to beach

  • Peregian Court
    Holiday Resorts    Peregian Beach, QLD

    great value accomadation . good for couples wanting quiet seating. 1-2 bedroom apartments outside Noosa. Modern, immaculate and spacious, undercover parking for 1 car, BBQ area, swimming pool and spa. Highly recommend. couples with kids Beware Management unreasonably grumpy with swimming pool activities yelling out from afar to reprimand guests- regarding pool behaviour (reasonable behaviour acceptable elsewhere is not acceptable here)

  • jarrahblue Local Star  reviewed Real Insurance
    have tried their home and contents insurance and car insurance, for a couple of years now. recently had a window repair claim which we had no difficulty with (settled quickly, followed up with me with satisfaction survey and email, claim form done over phone politely, great communication). appreciate how they dont operate under the rating system (which is a such a farce) where you are penalised when you make a claim by an increase in your renewal premium, have never found them difficulty to get hold of on phone (waiting time). the car insurance policy was fine, never had a need to claim though, but the paying for km is a good idea but gets a bit trickey as difficult to estimate how many km you will do in a year and although you can top up you have to make notes on your calender to remind yourself to keep an eye on it as if you go over and need to claim you are not covered (and we did go over and i didn't realise for several weeks) so decided not to renew just from this issue. there insurance rates are very competitive and often a little cheaper than other companies. did not use their landlords insurance only because they dont offer "rent default by tennant" which we required.

      Real insurance?? subsequently to my previous review I am disgusted with real insurance for contents insurance. We had some broken windows so I rang about our policy to enquire if we made a minor claim our premium would go up the following year and was told no Real don't operate that way (premiums go up each year according to the 'market' you are not penalised for making claims. So we claimed about $250 in window repairs then received our next premium and it had gone up at least $300 so I phoned for an explanation and was told it was because of the claim and I told them I had asked specifically about this, they said they would listen to phone tapes and get back to me and of course they never did. So we phoned back and they offered nothing, so we have obviously not renewed our policy (how can it possibly go up $300 for a minor $250 claim anyway?)

    had my child's taken at his preschool by them recently. although they was very friendly I was not happy with the service. They does not respond to repeated emails and phone message you leave with them with queires (such as over pricing) and i prefer more natural shots of kids playing rather than posed shots which they tends to take. prices for photos are expensive considering nature of digital photography now where there is no cost for them to develop prints to show parents to choose whether to buy or not (as there was with film). disappointing.

      the preschool where my daughter went, and I worked, had so many parents compaining they never received their photos they paid for and all attempted to contact you and got no/little response, consequently after 2 years of booking you we booked elsewhere
