The Beach House is the sole property on stunning Arthur Bay. Pristine oceanfront surrounded by nature with a private beachfront on the Great Barrier Reef.

Guests experience true relaxation in this iconic home sharing a backyard with koalas, wallabies and countless bird species. The Beach House is often visited by kookaburras and lorikeets and in the evening wallabies and possums.The front yard is the untouched Arthur Bay beach, a preferred snorkelling destination on Magnetic Island in the Great Barrier Reef, a short ferry ride from Townsville The Bay is surrounded by wooded hills laced with hiking trails, studded by magnificent granite boulders. It is recognizable for its hallmark, much photographed pandanus tree.

Snorkel or fish off the beach in the front yard and try spotting a whale in the winter months from the patio. The view from this patio of sunrise over the Bay is breathtaking as is the moonrise reflecting on the Bay. There is a small creek in the Bay which is a permanent tidal pool, ideal for children to find crabs, hermit crabs and other sea creatures.

The Beach House features a swimming pool heated in the winter months, plenty of indoor and outdoor dining space, a unique boulder in the middle of our 3 lounging rooms, 3 gas barbecues and a fully equipped kitchen as well as a second smaller kitchen in a self contained area.

Neighbouring our stunning location is the famous Forts walk. While being a significant part of our history it is a well known walk for koala spotting. There are numerous hiking trails within this area. A short drive from home will have you near local shops, cafes, supermarket, restaurants and of course other attractions Magnetic Island has to offer.

Each of the 4 bedrooms in the Beach House feature queen size beds, 2 additional foldaway beds and a travel cot are available upon request.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Location, location, location!! An amazing location but let down by some of the detail. No Wi-fi, no phone line, light bulbs not replaced and out dated bathrooms. Despite this the location makes it a try unique experience (but it could be amazing with a bit more effort!!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holiday in Paradise I'm a Townsville girl originally so Magnetic Island is a place I spent many weekends as a teenager. Back then, I certainly wasn't able to stay anywhere near as beautiful and luxurious as the Beach House. Maggie Island itself is one gorgeous girl. Easy access in under half an hour, or 40 minutes if like us, you choose to take your car over. In hindsight, probably didn't need the car since we had everything we needed and more at the House, and the island has great public transport. The House itself is massive with enough space for our two families and kidlets. It is a stunner! Rooms are spacious and like a hotel with their own shower and toilet. I love, love, loved waking up to the gorgeous blue north Queensland sky and hearing the native birds letting us know it was morning. There's a massive kitchen with anything and everything you would want, including an espresso machine, gas oven and dishwasher--because like, who wants to wash dishes on holiday, right? The dining table would have been suitable for a dinner party but with our small kids we especially enjoyed the deck overlooking the bay where we spent our meals and enjoyed plenty of drinks watching sunsets and listening to tunes on the house stereo. It's the only house in this bay, and we pretty much had the beach to ourselves the whole time. Kids had to be dragged kicking and screaming inside at the end of the day. They enjoyed beachcombing, swimming and digging in the sand. The waters were very clear and calm. We also swam in the house pool and used the BBQ right next to it. I managed to catch some rays (read: sunburn--don't forget to protect your skin people) from the poolside deckchairs. Wine tastes so much better outdoors, doesn't it? So if you've managed to read to the end of this review, you'll know that we had a bloody amazing time, and are already dreaming of when we will be able to get back. Hope it's soon!
