Turtle Cottage is your haven on Magnetic Island.

This enchanting cottage has been lovingly restored to its past splendor but with today's modern services. Set within lush tropical private gardens and only a 5 minute stroll to the beautiful Picnic Bay beach, a cold beer at the pub, mouth-watering meals at the restaurants or catching dinner from the jetty. Golfing is also an option and only 5 minutes walk from the cottage.

Turtle Cottage is spacious and tastefully decorated, offering split-level accommodation which is fully air-conditioned. The modern stainless steel fully equipped kitchen has a full size fridge, dishwasher, gas stove, microwave and is situated on the lower level of this charming cottage where you will also find the large comfy lounge, a dining table to seat six, 101 cm flat screen T.V, Austar, DVD player and a stereo with an Ipod docking station. From the lounge a glass sliding door opens onto the private pergola and BBQ area.

Both bedrooms include split-system air-conditioners and offer views to the flourishing surrounds with french doors opening onto the cool and welcoming veranda. The main bedroom has a queen bed with walk-in robe and flat screen TV while the second bedroom has a double bed and wardrobe. Both include bedside tables and lamps. Cottage windows throughout capture the breeze.

In the evening watch the antics of our resident possums while unwinding with a glass of wine in the large private BBQ area. The covered BBQ area is well equipped with outdoor setting, cooling fan and modern gas BBQ.

Please be aware that Turtle Cottage is split-level so may not be suitable for the elderly or infirmed. The toilet is located off the lounge area.
