Lazy Island is definitely catered for everyone, from couples break away, friends breakaway, or family breakaway. FULLY EQUIPPED. The owner REALLY goes the extra mile for her guests, and assure that all needs are met. I can without a doubt recommend Lazy Island to anyone. Location is perfect, within walking distance from restuarants, and shops.

Superb. 5 out of 5

A bit disappointed that only 2 restaurants open on the island on a public holiday.

Beautiful place, as backpackers it was useful as it's also safe so was easy to repack the car safely and leave the car with our things inside also.

Superb. 5 out of 5
