Description

Birdsong is at Bongaree, Bribie Island - 1 hr north of Brisbane and 1 hr south of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia & about 50 mins from Brisbane Airport.

Bribie is the only Queensland Island connected to the mainland by bridge.

Birdsong is a spacious, stylish, modern 2-bedroom villa built as part of our old beachfront Queenslander. It is independent of our own accommodation, and has its own solar-heated 15.3 meter lap pool set in a large beautiful private garden full of rare and unusual tropical and native plants.

Although within easy walking distance of restaurants, cafes, sports clubs, the RSL, and beach activities, it is a quiet and relaxing location. The noisiest residents are the native birds It is arguably the loveliest residential part of Bribie Island.

The location is perfect for a relaxing holiday or weekend getaway. Some of our features include:

Pet friendly

We love animals and would like to accommodate your pets. We can take most dogs, pet birds and possibly other animals. Please contact us to see if we can accommodate your particular pets. We definitely welcome guide dogs and disability assistance dogs.

We have a fenced yard which adjoins a large undercover deck. Pets can move independently and securely between their yard, the deck, and inside the villa.

You can walk your dog/s on off-leash dog beaches. Our closest off-leash beach is about a 1.3 km street-walk away 3 mins by car. When the tide is lower, you can also do the trip on foot on the beach.

Wheelchair / Disability Accessible

Fully wheelchair accessible and was designed by an experienced occupational therapist. This includes:

- Completely flat flooring from front entry to pool at back with the exception of bathroom doorway lip 12 mm and 16 mm lip to back deck and pool.

- Wet-room bathroom with hand-held shower & no shower hob, and hospital-grade, slip-resistant vinyl flooring.

- We can provide a shower chair and raised toilet seat if required.

Lots of things to do. There are ample opportunities to:

Get Physical

- Swim in your own private lap pool at Birdsong &/or at the Bribie Island Aquatic Centre & we have easy beach access for swimming in the Pumicestone Passage

- Cycle along Bribie's extensive network of bike paths. A beautiful waterside bike path runs past Birdsong.

- Beach & bush walk - Bribie is very flat so you don’t have to be super fit to enjoy these pastimes.

- Fish from either beach or boat. The beach in front of Birdsong is popular for fishing.

- Kayak in the ocean or the network of canals

- Play golf at one or both of the 2 golf courses on Bribie Island.

- & Sail, surf, sailboard, jog - to name just a few more

Enjoy Nature

- Bird-watch - The local area is home to more species of birds than Kakadu A short walk from Birdsong is Buckley’s Hole, a fresh-water lagoon popular with bird watchers and many local and migratory birds. There is even a bird hide.

- Enjoy native wildlife - Most of the island is uninhabited with 55.8 square kilometres of national park and forestry plantations. Consequently, native wildlife abounds, whether it be kangaroos on the beach, black cockatoos in our Banksia tree, or dolphins frolicking near the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Birdsong. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming, especially with our dogs who also thoroughly enjoyed their little holiday in the beautiful tropical surrounds. Couldn't ask for a better location - walk to everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A home away from home We really enjoyed our stay at Birdsong, not only is Bribie a gorgeous location, Birdsong is a little home away from home and we were made to feel very welcome along with our two dogs who joined us. Birdsong is fully equiped with everything you could need and it was impeccably cleaned. It had a very tropical feel to it with the beautiful little rainforest Robin has lovingly brought to life alongside the pool and deck. Even though it was very open it was still very private. Jock and Robin were unobtrusive but also liked to check in to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed which was much appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a home away from home How unique and special this place is! On our second stay at Birdsong after an 18 month interval, we found hosts Jock and Robyn just as warm, helpful and welcoming as we recalled, and equally unobtrusive. The ground level 2 bedroom living area is comfortable and spacious, kitchen well equipped. Apart from relaxing, we entertained friends from the local area with a long, chilled-out Sunday barbecue on the large, shady deck overlooking the pool as well as enjoying some of the amazingly fresh local seafood purchased nearby: shellfish, crabs, prawns, bugs and fresh reef fish. Birdsong will definitely be on our list for another visit, and hopefully sooner than 18 months apart next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful place Birdsong is spacious, relaxing and beautiful. Jock and Robyn are lovely and have put so much love and care into creating somewhere really special. The undercover deck is a wonderful place to eat, read ... or just sit and listen to the birds :) The garden is gorgeous - it feels quite Balinese in some ways. The kitchen is very well equipped. The location is excellent - very quiet and right next to the beach, yet easy to walk to shops, cafes etc.
