    We had a wonderful stay with Adam at CStay. The double room was lovely, the bed was comfy and the sink in the bathroom was a great touch. The bathrooms were clean and showers nice and hot. We didn’t use the pool but it looked like a great place for dip to cool off. Adam the owner is a really lovely guy and gave us loads of advice on where to go and what to do on the island. The place is also very accessible and you can use the bus to get around the island easily. Definitely book at CStay!

    Lovely little guesthouse, really friendly man checked us in, gave us great advice on what to do on the island. Highlight was a hidden away short trek up to a rock nearby with incredible views for sunset! Very clean and really nice, modern kitchen. Would 100% stay again, thanks!!

    Loved this place. Everything was great, except for maybe the atmosphere. There wasn't much going on and it was really calm and quiet which I thought was really nice for a change. The staff was super friendly and everything was nice and clean. The room was small but there was a fridge and a sink in there which was great. Good location close to bus stop, beach and reataurants. Felt kind of like a mix between hotel and hostel.

    This is not a B&B. It’s more like a hotel with communal facilities. Know that going in and you’ll have a fine time. Perfect for couples or friends who prefer a chill night. If you wanna party, go to Base. I enjoyed my time here at Cstay. Reception was very nice and the wifi was good.

    A lovely, clean and modern place with spotless bathrooms, bedroom and kitchen. We made use of the little pool which was nice and could park the car directly in front of the building. Pub, beach and restaurants less than a 5 minute walk away. Anton was very friendly and helpful. Overall, great value for money and a pleasant stay.

    I enjoyed staying here, it gave me a night to get away from the hostel life. Anton was so nice and friendly!! Toilets / showers are shared but clean! Kitchen was immaculate. Birds in the morning were beautiful. Woke up with a smile on my face!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Magnetic Island and were really glad we chose C Stay. The twin room was very comfortable and there was lots of space to relax outside. Cooking facilities were great and the kitchen area spotless. We would’ve liked it to include tea and coffee. We used the bus to get around and it stopped very close to C Stay making it very accessible. The owner was so friendly and helpful and gave us lots of tips and advice on how to make the most of our time on the island.
