My family and I were lucky enough to stay at The Beachhouse in early November 2018. The drive around Magnetic Bay and down to Arthur Bay is truly spectacular. The house itself is huge and it is tucked away in the bushland beautifully. Our children were very excited to find the large granite rock that remains as a feature in the downstairs cinema room. The house is two story with many rooms and bathrooms and a very nice swimming pool It was a hot day, but the house is air conditioned so felt very comfortable. We cooked a barbeque on the balcony on our first night, enjoying the beach view, beautiful bushland surroundings and magical star filled sky. Arthur Bay itself is amazing. We paddled around the bay in the couple of surf Kayaks that the Beachhouse provided, and later snorkled around the reef seeing coral, tropical fish, and stingrays. Thanks very much to Townsville local, Darrel Butler, for recommending this exclusive property. It is a millionaires paradise. We really enjoyed our stay.
Amazing PlaceMitch - 30th November
We stayed three nights and wished we never had to go home. We loved to wake up to crashing waves and then take a morning walk on the beach. The stars in the evening from the balcony are unbelievable, but I think our favourite part was exploring the reef and all the gear you need was at the house they even have kayaks. We saw so much marine life only 100m from the house! The house is so spacious even with 8 adults we seem to be able to find our own space . Loved this place we will defineatly be back just make sure we stay longer next time.
Vacation place should be like this!Omaus - 30th November
We were very grateful to find such an unusual place to spend our vacation. In the midst of the national park, no one else was around but us. So quiet and serene, yet cute animals and exotic birds visited us to amuse us. This was really one of a kind vacation place.
Best place on the island!SilkeS - 30th November
This place is magic. We booked it to surprise our German friends. As soon as we arrived we felt at home. It is in the best location and the house itself is amazing. You can just chill by the pool, wander to the beach and you feel relaxed in an instant. All rooms were lovely and very clean. Kitchen is great and has anything you need. A very nice open living area with a view to die for. We can not wait to go there again. Highly recommended.
Amazing location and spectacular houseNadine - 30th November
Wonderful holiday with the family. The house is amazing and is fully equipped, beautiful beds, linen, kitchen etc. Extremely private being the only house located at Arthur Bay. Snorkelling is also really good in the bay. The house is very spacious and has loads of places to chill out on your own if you need quit time. The house also has its own private swimming pool, BBQs and great out door eating areas. By far the best house on Magnetic Island and cant wait to go back.
Book me againYukotako - 30th November
Awesome relax in an amazing house and unforgettable location. The great thing was that it was well set up, the kids could entertain themselves by the pool or on the beach and we would relax on the balcony looking out over the sea. Was one of those holidays that the kids will remember when they grow up. Cant say enough about it. Hope to come back next year.
great tropical escapeJonnyG - 30th November
Love this place, no other place like it on Magnetic island! No neighbours, surrounded by nature and walk out the front door onto one of the best bays on the island.
