Welcome to Fraser Island Holiday Home, a self contained tropical style home centrally located in a World Heritage Listed place. The open design has expansive open timber decking, french doors and lawn areas designed to catch the sea breezes (and allowing you to hear the surf as you fall asleep!)
The home is designed to suit large groups or 2 families wishing to share (1 upstairs and 1 down). It sleeps up to 12 people comfortably with 5 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets. Extensive use is made of polished Fraser Island Satinay hardwood flooring.
The bedroom configuration is:
Bedroom 1 queen (upstairs)
Bedroom 2 double bunk + 1 single (upstairs)
Bedroom 3 double bunk (upstairs)
Bedroom 4 double bed (downstairs)
Bedroom 5 double bunk + 1 single (downstairs)
Please bring your own linen (sheets & towels). Pillows, pillow slips, mattress & pillow protectors, doonas and blankets are all provided.
Happy Valley is a quiet location. Out of respect for others please minimise noise after 11pm. The home is primarily designed to accommodate families rather than student groups. A $200 bond applies to all bookings to cover the cost of any damage not due to routine wear and tear or additional cleaning costs above normal requirements. This is not a 'party house'.
Fraser fun holiday activities include fishing, swimming, sun-baking, four wheel beach driving, sightseeing lakes and rainforest, trekking, birdwatching, scenic flight from beach, whale watching & byo canoeing. Nearby attractions include Lakes Wabby and Garawongerra, the Maheno Ship Wreck, Eli Creek, Rainbow Gorge and the Yidney Scrub rainforest.
The holiday home is situated at beautiful Happy Valley, about 1/2 way up the east coast of the island and the entry point for the epic 90 km 'Great Walk'. There is a 180m boardwalk to the famed Eastern Beach. Happy Valley is enclosed by a dingo proof fence for the security of small children.Guests usually bring their own food and toiletries, but there is a store which also sells fuel and (soon) alcohol if you do forget anything.
This home uses silent, eco-friendly state of the art solar power (but do not overload with additional appliances or car fridges please). Cooking facilities are gas and there is an instant hot water system. Other facilities include Satellite TV, DVD, CD, board games, book exchange, washing machine, external gas BBQ, outside table and ample parking.
The holiday home is maintained to a high standard by people who live in Happy Valley. They are easily contactable should you need anything. You are requested to please leave the property as clean as you found it and to dispose of any household rubbish.
