A very comfortable and relaxing modern 3 bedroom modern lowset home set among tropical gardens, in a very quiet location and genuinely 200 metres easy level walk to Scarness beach at Hervey Bay. Totally safe and private.
We cater for all. The location is perfect for families with children, no more holiday boredom plenty of children's activities and playgrounds within walking distance and of course the beach. Our children really enjoyed their holidays in Hervey Bay and now so do theirs. The calm waters and beautiful sandy beaches are just perfect.
No more expensive kennel costs for the four legged friend either, all dogs enjoy the freedom of the off-leash beach and the social interaction of meeting and greeting!
(for well behaved, friendly, registered and non-digging dog only).
We understand how difficult it can be when going on a holiday and then having to pack everything you might need to use, including the kitchen sink!
So when we developed our unique holiday accommodation, 8 years ago, we broke the existing mould and set different standards, and against criticism, based the property on a Bed and Breakfast Style. We just didn't fit into any boxes, but more than 25 years real estate industry knowledge and experience, changed expectations.
And all our many guests since 2007 have certainly appreciated what we have done. But to make sure we provided the best we could, we traveled the world, and road tested our property against many other very established bed and breakfasts.
What does that mean for you? - All you need to bring is your clothes and personal items. Everything else is provided. Imagine shutting your own front door, and opening ours, - your "Home away from Home"

As the living ares are open plan, the 6 seater dining room flows through to the fully appointed spacious kitchen, with lots of wide benches.
Once again the red theme is featured in many of the necessary kitchen items. There is plenty of crockery and cutlery, ample baking and cooking items. Basic grocery items are in the well stocked pantry.
The dishwasher is an under bench dish drawer, no more bending to load the dishwasher! Full size stove, microwave, rangehood, filtered water, insinkerator and again nothing to bring. All the cleaning products you will need are under the sink.

Genuine 200 metres to the Esplanade and beach. Totally flat and level walk. Centrally located, walk to shops, playgrounds or eateries
The property is in a quiet no through laneway, with only a handful of homes.
Additional car parking is available at the head of the cul-de-sac. There is no drive through access to the Esplanade, as Tuan Tuan creek is only crossed by a footbridge.
This makes it a very handy location, easy flat walk to the beach and extremely central to any Hervey Bay facility. Just allow 10 minutes drive to sporting fields, swimming pools, large shopping centres, Library, airport, bus station, and the Boat Harbour.
Local shops in both Scarness and Pialba are close. A myriad of different food tastes are catered for, from great fish and chips, French delights, all different food cultures, just to the right at Scarness. Beachfront breakfast and lunch options, or extensive BBQ facilities all in Scarness.
The children are not forgotten here, with the free waterpark 500 metres away, and numerous covered playgrounds for their enjoyment. A large reserve area adjoins the Tuan Tuan creek and is suitable for children to play cricket or kick a football.
Scarness is a safe swimming beach. Sometimes the tide disappears a long distance, and then your four legged friend will enjoy extra exercise in an attempt to find the water! Soldier crabs often swarm and disappear into the sand.
Follow the tide in, and sometimes, you might be lucky to spot a pod of dolphins or the delightful dugong. They graze on the sea grass beds, and to see one of these rather special mammals is quite a thrill.
You might like to try your hand at fishing off one of our many jetties.
We are close to the bat rookery - The nightly migration is a stunning sight from our front courtyard, how many can you count? Contrary to some opinions, the rookery has never for us, been a problem!
