This holiday home has 5 large bedrooms - 3 upstairs and 2 downstairs: 2 bathrooms - 1 up and 1 down: large living room and kitchen and laundry with washing machine and dryer. The house is fully air-conditioned with fans as well or just enjoy the beautiful sea breezes through the fly-screened windows. Plenty of parking space and a large yard for the children to enjoy. The house is approximately 500 meters from the beach front. The home is suitable for a large family or a group of families wanting to enjoy the beautiful beaches, great fishing and closeness to the Fantome, Pelorus, Palm and Orpheus Islands just off the coast. There are 2 boat ramps from which to launch the boat to explore the great fishing opportunities or to cruise across to the islands and snorkel or dive the reefs surrounding the islands in beautiful clear waters or stop off at Yanks Jetty on Orpheus Island for a picnic and swim around viewing the fish and coral that live under the jetty. The house is approximately 20-25 minutes from Dungeness where there is great launching facilities and parking space. Launching at Dungeness gives you access to the Hinchinbrook Channel or the outer reefs for great fishing or visit Zoe Falls on Hinchinbrook Island and enjoy a cooling swim in the beautiful pool at the bottom of the falls after tracking through tropical rain forest. If this isn't enough, you can enjoy long walks along the soft white sandy beach collecting shells and trinkets. Forrest Beach has a stinger net which is in position during the summer months and patrolled by Surf Lifesavers on weekends and during school holiday periods. There is a mini-mart, take-away food shop, hair-dresser, doctor and chemist, newsagency and hotel with a bottle shop. The hotel, which is on the beachfront, has an a-la-carte restaurant and is great spot to sit and enjoy a drink with family and friends with a cool breeze blowing or inside the air-conditioned bar.
