Below we’ve listed our pick of the best family options in terms of the Airbnb holiday rentals Yeppoon has.

Bay Vacationer Apartment

Yeppoon Airbnb

My tip on where to stay with the kids on Airbnb is the Bay Vacationer complex.  While it might be an older style building, with its gorgeous renovated apartments and central location, this is the ideal family holiday apartment.  Located at 16 Anzac Parade, Yeppoon, this complex is right across the road from the beach and water park, as well as being surrounded by places to eat, and a short walk to the lagoon and the various shops in town.  

The Bay Vacationer features two bedroom apartments which are completely self contained.  Most apartments come with a queen master bedroom and have two single beds in the second bedroom.  Apartments have been renovated in their own unique style and have great views across to Keppel Kracken waterpark.
