A 4 storey luxurious Villa catering for up to 14 over six split levels. Recapture your soul and discover peace and luxury on Magnetic Island. Fantastic property for entertaining or relaxing.

Perched high on a hill, hidden behind trees overlooking Nelly Bay, is Nahmahlu - named after a sacred watering hole in the Kimberleys. At Nahmahlu you will find Aboriginal paintings scattered throughout the property. Exposed beams transported to Australia by the American Government and sourced from an abandoned World War 2 Military establishment are simply magnificent.

Sweeping views of hills and native trees entangled with glimpses of the coral sea all combine to ensure peace and luxury are at the essence of Nahmahlu. Wake up with the sound of nature at your door step.The naked beauty of the natural surroundings provide a unique contrast for the island.Enter the main level through the original wooden to an expansive living area filled with exposed beams, original boulders and an abundance of natural light.

Bifold doors lead you to the balcony that wraps the South face of the property. Here lies another dining area and further down the balcony, away from it all, an outdoor lounge setting with day beds.From this level you have the choice to go up some stairs to the mezzanine level, otherwise known as the games room (complete with pool table). This area takes full advantage of the naked beauty of the natural surroundings. Enjoy an afternoon reading your book on the window seat and wait for the wallabies to appear.Adjacent to this leads you to the accommodation quarters of Nahmahlu.Two Queen sized bed rooms that spill on to verandahs are located opposite a state of the art bathroom with double shower.Floating stairs lead you to the next level where another two queen sized rooms reside opposite each other.

HEIDI - 30th November

Massive house. There is enough room in this house for large gatherings, you won't trip over everyone. Won't be crowded. Great location on the island, close to supermarket and some restaurants. Only downfall..... the stairs... but other then that, its an eye opener and a great place to catch up and relax....

Size of property for multiple families

Susie - 30th November

We love staying at Nahmahlu and this is our 2nd time.

Fantastic family holiday home

Janice - 30th November

Everything about this home was perfect for our family reunion. We had so much space to share each others company & yet still enough space to enjoy quiet time. We certainly had no issues with this amazing home & the agents have been fantastic from start to finish.

Best Family Holiday Venue on Maggie

Mary - 30th November

We have stayed at this house three times now based solely on it's size, as we enjoy holidaying as a family. It sleeps fourteen adults, but can also accommodate children. We love the fact that there is enough room for all of us to gather in the living areas at the same time. The outside living areas are to die for, and there are plenty of intimate little spots that you can escape to for a quiet moment on your own if you prefer. Our English family thought they had died and gone to heaven when we took them over to Maggie in September. Even the adults screamed with delight when the rock wallabies peeked through the windows at them.
