Great house for a large extended family’s, worked really well for a group of 9. Amazing views and straight down to the beach. Would recommend a car if staying at the property and also the heated pool was not that heated! Would have been nice to make more use of the it.

WOW, WOW, WOW......This would seriously come close to being one of THE most amazing homes on the east coast of Australia!! We were a group of 8 - reconnecting from many different places to celebrate our joint 50th birthdays as we have been friends since High school!!! I really don’t know where to start. The views were breathtaking, each room was incredible and the beds were super comfy. We barely left the house we just loved it. The walk down to the beach was easy and super convenient. Everything we needed was right there in the home. Super well appointed and we simply did not want to leave. We asked for some special touches to be left for our arrival and Pam and her crew were more than happy to oblige. Before we had left we were planning our next visit. A place definitely to be experienced!

To die for views!!!

This place is absolutely incredible! Do not hesitate- book now!! I honestly don’t even know where to start...The views are incredible- right over picnic bay and to Townsville. The ocean is right there, just off the deck and swimming pool and just outside the bedroom and dining room windows. The steps from the back patio also lead right down to the beach! The bedrooms are wonderful, spacious and several have ocean views. The beds are super comfortable and the appliances and bathrooms are all modern and stylish. The way the house is situated is perfect- u feel like there is no one around you. The pool is wonderful and a perfect temperature day and night- we ended up in the pool 4 or 5 times a day with a cold drink! it’s especially great that it’s always partly undercover so there is always a shaded part to enjoy! The way the house is set up means that the main bedroom is in the main part of the house, then two separate apartments’ style buildings are connected by boardwalks, each with 2 bedrooms in. This allows people to get some space from each other whilst still being close by. The only downside for us was that most of the restaurants in picnic bay were Closed whilst we were there, but we understand this is just due to the time of year for our visit. Absolutely incredible house- don’t consider any longer! Book now!!!

10 Stars!

We really needed more stars. It is a 10 Star House! It looked wonderful on the internet and the reality was even better. Most perfectly appointed, couldn't believe that the pool was heated. And we had a koala in one of the trees as a bonus! Don't think we could ever stay anywhere else on the Island. Thanks so much for renting to us.
