The budget cabins were newer trailers that had a room on each end and a shared bathroom in the middle. Since it was our family that had both rooms, it was not bad to share a bathroom. I would not like to have a shared bathroom with a stranger. The kitchen was well equipped and we were able to prepare our meals easily. One negative for us was that they only supplied one towel per person and no hand towels or washcloths. We went to the store and bought hand towels and washcloths to dry our hands and clean up with. It was convenient to have a washer and dryer in the complex. The landscaping was tropical and well kept. I would recommend these cabins as an affordable place to stay for a family that shares the whole trailer.
We stayed in a second story apartment at this location for a few days vacation. The front desk closes at 5 pm (or earlier) and I recommend you contact them a day or two before arrival about your stay and any questions. Ann got us all booked for Tarunga and Green Island before we arrived and helped out with navigating the area. From the hotel, we walked down to the Esplanade (boat terminal) and it took about 30- 35- minutes. Also, some tours will pick you up at the hotel. The room was clean with daily maid service, and the property was tidy. There is a stove top and clothes washer in the room, but no oven or clothes dryer. There is one clothes dryer on the first floor (free) but it's used extensively and we were up late one night with laundry. It was too humid to air dry clothes on the days we were there.
The premises is located within easy walking distance of all the things a young family needs. The room was well fitted out and all quite new and very clean. The staff are friendly and warm and made us feel very welcome. The ability to book tours, taxis etc via reception without added cost was warmly welcomed and the staff are very informative as to the 'value' of tours and inclusions. They also had a good knowledge of the local area and were happy to answer all our questions. Many thanks to Wayne, the manager, who couldn't have been more helpful. We highly recommend Tradewinds for a stress free family holiday.
