Cedar Lodge Fraser Island
House in Fraser Island, QLD
Cedar Lodge is nestled in a quiet bush setting three minutes walk to the beach. The home is a very large, open plan design on three levels, with double storied decks on three sides of the house. Located in second valley at Eurong you will be away from all the noise and traffic that surrounds the main resort/shop/petrol station area.
A short walk or drive and you have access to all these facilities. Eurong even has a restaurant, bakery and take away shop.
The solar power supply is stored in a large bank of expensive batteries. This 240 volt source powers the lights, large fridge/freezer and washing machine. This is an eco friendly home, discover the real life - take a break from the constant demands from 24/7 technology!
If you can't manage without constant technology, microwaves, hairdryers etc then I suggest that Fraser Island is probably not going to please you. For those that love new experiences, adventure, nature, appreciate the simple pleasures of life and are prepared to arrange their travels according to low tide...this is the perfect place and I'm sure you'll love the island.
The house has a top quality white kitchen with stainless steel bench tops. An island bench holds the large gas cooktop with special burners for woks and fish cookers.
All cooking utensils, crockery etc are supplied but please take care not to use anything abrasive on the stainless steel benchtops. There is a new gas BBQ and built in table on the front deck - an ideal place for entertainment. Please note, there is no microwave as it pulls too much power for the solar set up.
The house has a new gas hot water system. The caretaker will have this switched on prior to your arrival.
The downstairs living area has a cream coloured leather lounge. The dining table seats eight.
The top floor is a very large area with a high pitched timber ceiling, louvres and skylight provide abundant natural light and ventilation. This is the main bedroom. This area also has a toddlers bed and cot. Please take your own linen and blankets for the cot.
On the middle floor there is another private bedroom with a queen sized bed and an adjoining bedroom with double bunks and a trundle. These bedrooms are adjacent to a second seating area with two leather lounges and sliding glass doors opening onto the covered decks at the front and rear of the house.
Telstra phones work from the house- for other mobiles, coverage is avaiable at the bottom of the ramp from the beach.
My house does not have television, however there is a docking station for ipods. It is PARTIALLY SCREENED..many people prefer to have the house opened up to decks and use coils.
The bathroom and laundry are located on the ground floor.
Prices quoted do not include linen. You will need to bring sheets, pillow cases and towels. Bath mat and tea towels are provided.
All blankets, mattress protectors and pillows are provided.
New pillows are purchased every year.
Fraser island is a magnificent world heritage listed island with a million natural treasures! Enjoy the pristine inland lakes, rainforest walks, endless clean beaches, fresh water streams, coloured sands, shipwreck, whale watching and of course FISHING!
The house will be available from 2.00pm, and please depart by 10.00am.
