Description

Betty's Place is a rare 5 bedroom house located right on the beachfront at Cowan Cowan, on magical Moreton Island.

From the massive deck, you can watch the kids play in the water right in front of the house or spot whales and dolphins before enjoying the sunset over Moreton Bay. All this, just 2 hours from Brisbane.

Cowan Cowan is a small village on Moreton Island of just 70 homes that offers a unique experience. There are only 10 residents in the town, with most homes used as weekenders or vacation homes.

Being on a sand Island, there are no sealed roads and all power is provided by the house's solar system and fresh rain water is stored in tanks

The house easily accomodates groups with 2 Queen bedrooms upstairs opening onto the deck with views, plus a bedroom with a single bed. Downstairs has one large bedroom with a queen size bed plus 2 single beds and another bedroom with 2 single beds.

Everything You Need

The house has everything you would expect from a quality large 5 bedroom residence. Two TVs, DVD player and stereo. There is a large kitchen with gas oven, 2 fridge/freezers and 2 large bathrooms with separate toilets.

Kayaks, Fishing rods and crab pots can be made available if needed.

Guests generally choose Moreton Island to be left alone. However, we have managers in the township that can assist with barge transfers, advice, things to see and any issues that arise.

Linen is available for $15 per person.

Whilst we have a large and reliable Solar Power system in the house, there is no dishwasher or microwave as they consume a lot of power and can lead to inconvenience for you with power outages. Please don't take hair dryers, coffee machines, toasters etc for the same reason.

There is a shop on the island with a good range of essentials but you should take as much food etc with you for your stay. There are big fridges and freezers to store food in.

Things To Do and See

Cowan Cowan is a quiet and remote location so close to the Brisbane CBD.

From Cowan, you are only 15 minutes 4x4 drive to the Bulwer township with a shop and restaurant or 20 minutes in the other direction to the Tangalooma resort with a bar and restaurant.

The Island has many amazing natural attractions from North Point, Champagne Pools, Cape Moreton Lighthouse, Big Sandhills etc etc.

The beach in front of the house is the only beach on the island closed to traffic, so it is ideal for young kids to roam and play in a safe environment.

Getting around

The only way to travel the Island is by 4x4 on the beach and purpose built sand tracks. If you don't have a 4x4, you can arrange a transfer to the house via us, and/or book the local taxi / tour service for a day trip or two. Ask us for help when you book and we are more than happy to give advice on how best to get around depending on numbers and desires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Spot - Nice place to stay. Very enjoyable and relaxing 3 weeks. Felt like home to us for the time we were there. The house is large and comfortable and the position is almost unbeatable. Are looking forward to returning again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paradise on our Doorstep Moreton Island is such a beautiful location at anytime of the year, I could not think of a better place to stay then right on the Beach in Betty's Place. It doesn't matter if enjoy fishing or just relaxing with a glass of wine on the deck watching the waves roll in, you will find it here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect House! We spent 1 week here on a boys trip and the place was perfect. Plenty of space, perfect location with no cars along the beach. The Balcony was massive with a amazing view. Highly recomended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Private beach retreat with lots of space We had an amazing time here and loved the open space and private beach access. There's nothing better than lounging on the huge back deck looking out at the stunning view of Moreton Bay while the sun rises and sets. When looking at other houses for rent we couldn't find anything with an outdoor deck and entertaining area as good as this place and the way the backyard extends into Moreton Bay is magical. We went for lots of walks along the beach and went swimming, snorkelling and fishing within meters of the house. Cowan Cowan is also centrally positioned for exploring the island by 4WD - only 15 minutes North to Bulwer, the Bulwer Wrecks and Comboyuro Point, and 15 minutes South to the Tangalooma Wrecks, Tangalooma Resort, and Middle Road for access to the Eastern Beach and we did a nice day trip up to Cape Moreton. We only regret not staying longer but hope to be back in future.
