  49. Why I love this place is because it doesn't matter who you are by wealth or status, you are always treated as a valued friend. As guests we have our own space, the BBQ, our own veranda areas, the swimming pool, and there is ample parking spaces. The motel has a lovely, friendly village atmosphere that welcomes everyone and encourages people to meet new friends. In my industry, I meet people from all walks of life and give respect to people who give respect to others. I have stayed at Kinka Palms many times, for up to 3 months at a time, and I keep coming back to stay here again and again, and I have come to think of Kinka Palms as my second home, and because of the friendships I have with other guests who stay here regularly as well. The service is always great. If we want privacy as we stay for a week or more, we can look after ourselves and seek service from motel staff whenever we need it. Also, I am a pet lover. I know motel staff pets and friends who stay here with their pets very well. How much better can a second home be ? Kind Regards,

  107. A great place to stay with your dog, right opposite a lovely beach. Our dog loved it and they were happy for us to leave her indoors while we went to the Brock Museum and Karoonda Crocodile Farm. The management was friendly and very helpful too. We'll go back again! Rating 4/5

  108. The friendly greeting, plus the prior communication. Absolutely lovely owners, great grounds and environment. Very flexible. I've already booked in for my return voyage, even though Kinka Palms is out of my way. Plus, plus plus for me. Rating 5/5

  110. The fact that we could have our dog with us - not many places allow that and it just made our trip! Not only were dogs permitted, the atmosphere was very pro-dog. The owners treasured our little dog, there are pooper scoopers conveniently placed around the property, the provision of doggie bed/bowl etc upon request and a dog-friendly beach just steps away. It was wonderful!! Rating 4/5.

  119. Hi Mike, We’ve stopped at your place on Saturday night with our dog. I just wanted to thank you for the warmest welcome. Your place is great to stay, clean, and friendly. We left on Sunday morning early to the Gold Coast, and your office was closed. I couldn’t write this message on your “GUEST BOOK”. All the best and once again, thank you.

  129. Good functional room in regards to the kitchen. Pleasant managers. Would have preferred a room facing the coast to pick up the breeze, but I think the bedding configuration didn't allow that. Plenty of friendly dogs around. Rating 4/5.

  145. Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks for having us at Unit 6 on Saturday night (14/2). We had the absolute best time & Lonhro really enjoyed his first ever holiday!! :) You guys are so wonderful to open up a room as “Pet Friendly” - having said that, the room is so immaculate that you would have no idea that it was the designated Pet Friendly quarters!! It is a very unique service you offer & we have told all of our pet-loving friends about it. We will be back – with the fur child & new baby soon!! Take Care,

  147. Very enjoyable 9 night stay with wonderfully humble place with a terrific pool and warm beds. Was such a relief to find a clean and quiet place to share with our pets. Murray is one of the champions who cleans the units and maintains the yards. We found him lovely, approachable and very effecient in his job, who just loves animals. Thankyou all for a truely lovely stay...i recommend this place as a list topliner when looking for a place to stay in and around Yeppoon. Rating 5/5.

      UPDATE: Dave wrote a nice article about their stay: Holidays with Dogs (April 6th, 2009). Thank you for the lovely feedback, please come back and see us again soon !! :)

      Here's a short quote from Dave's Article:

      • So, how did it go? The short answer is that it was great! Mike, the owner, and Murray, his off-sider, couldn’t have been more helpful. Both were very easy going and really made the holiday the relaxing time that it was. The rooms are not super-modern but very comfortable and have all the mod-cons you really need out of a relaxing holiday destination. The location was superb with a short walk over the road and through the dunes to the beach.

  151. The accommodation was very clean and tidy with extremely friendly staff. The site is pet friendly and this is a huge bonus, as there are limited places that allow dogs. The apartments are across the road from the beach, so they are in a wonderful location. Rating 4/5.
