Straddy is a superb holiday home nestled in the tranquil rainforest of beautiful South Stradbroke Island. Gazing down the twenty-two kilometres of pristine Pacific coastline, one can be forgiven for thinking that the island is a world away from the mainland’s Gold Coast, just visible on the distant horizon.
Straddy is a modern, spacious home set on three levels that can sleep up to 9 persons. It is a home full of personal touches, furnished ‘beyond the resort standard’ and is arguably the best location on the island. It is a perfect retreat in which to relax and recuperate with the additional benefit of full access to all the amenities of the first-class Couran Cove Island Resort and its safe moorings.
For the young and energetic there is a host of Activities which will entertain you throughout your stay and reinvigorate your spirit. The few cars at Couran Cove Island Resort are driven by the Resort Operations. Cycling is the preferred means of transport and many kids have become competent cyclists on the safe tracks of the resort.
Straddy is the furthest accommodation from the resort centre located on the island’s west coast, one kilometre away a five minute cycle ride and nearest to the breathtaking, white sands of the virgin east coast, one and a half kilometres away through the State Forest a ten minute cycle ride. For those who feel disinclined to cycle or stroll under the forest canopy, there is an intermittent, free ‘train’ service between the resort and the beach.
