We live in an isolated part of Magnetic Island. We produce all our own solar power (with generator backup); we also have solar hot water; gas stove & BBQ for cooking.
We can do a load of washing for you but prefer that guests do not operate the machine.
You will have your own cooking facilities and bathroom. They are basic but great for the sandy setting.
We request you please only charge your appliances during sunny periods (or if generator is being used) .
Your guest quarters allow you to enjoy the natural surroundings; it's a bit like" glamping" with comfortable screened sleeping/dining area with panoramic views of beach and bush under a high tin roof.
It can be noisy when it rains and there are lots of night noises including wallabies, possums, birds, wind in the trees, waves on the beach ........but if that doesn't bother you, you will enjoy staying at our 'green' thong tree beach house.
Our beach house is still open to visitors even though our warmer months approach. We had >800mL of rain in March which filled our tanks but made the road impassable for a few days. It has been mostly clear and sunny since.
Between April and September is the best time to visit our little piece of paradise for people in southern hemisphere who are looking to escape their cold winters, however our spring and summer times are perfect for travellers from northern hemisphere who are looking to escape to a warm tropical island. We can offer a budget priced experience in a peaceful slice of paradise.
The upper deck is 8x8 square metres and is fully screened with panoramic views of bush behind and beach at the front. It is a quiet eco-friendly retreat but is not wheel chair accessible as there are 13 steps to reach this spacious living area.
There is a lounge and dining area adjacent to the sleeping space with a couple of hammocks ready if you feel that way inclined.A portable cot is available on request.
There is a desk with a magnificent view and a games table with a variety of card and board games for you to use including one that we developed called "Going Troppo!!"
We have renovated our original kitchen (with refrigerator and gas stove) & bathroom downstairs, which is for guests sole use. There are barbecues outside too.
We have kept many of the original artefacts on display. There is space for car parking .
We hope you will find it is a peaceful place to escape to and unwind.
