magnificent view, next to national park
very quiet, great view towards Hamilton Island at a distance, 10 min drive to Town center, 2 min drive to Shute Harbour, ideal spot if you don't want to be right where the crowds are. House is very big, everything works well, beds are comfortable. The host is very helpful and interested. We had a great stay.
The views from the deck were stunning - rainforest on one side and islands on the other. The lap pool on the deck was still warm enough to use in July. Sailing the Whitsundays was a highlight - don't miss the opportunity to snorkel and to swim at Whitehaven beach.
Hi Rita so glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks so much for leaving Malekula looking so beautiful!
A retreat without staying at a resort
This home is like being at a retreat it is so relaxing and was just what we were looking for in our holiday. The view from the moment we arrived was just stunning and were quite happy to spend lots of time at the house each day enjoying the balcony, whilst taking in the view over the bay. With our Border Collie in tow, we were grateful for being able to bring him away on holiday with us with the home having everything you need, from bedding to kitchen utensils. The location is quiet and serene and very relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay and would be happy to stay there again.
Hi Miriam, many thanks for your review I am thrilled it was all you expected and suited the whole family! Thanks so much for looking after Malekula too . Best regards Jacinta
We loved our stay at Malekula. It simply is a magical place. Even though it stormed and rained throughout our stay, it was wonderful to feel all cosy inside and to be able to witness the storms roll in from our bedroom and the vast balcony. We really felt re-grounded and a part of nature in Malekula. We even saw two tawny frogmouth owls who were perched in a tree near the house for a whole day, a lace monitor climb another tree and enjoyed the chirping geckos and an array of birds. The house was tidy, clean and very comfy. The pool was refreshing and a treat to have all to ourselves. The views all around were exceptional. Airlie was only a short drive down the road. We also ventured to Cedar Creek Falls and day tripped to Bowen. We loved the walk to Coral Beach and its lookout, which was a stones throw from Malekula. We would highly recommend this magical retreat and hope to return in the future. Thank you Jacinta for being a most accommodating and gracious host and for letting us stay in your wonderful place.
Hi Jay I really appreciate your wonderful comments and also how you made the most of your stay despite the lack of sunshine. Its always refreshing when guests like yourselves enjoy nature to its fullest - even the poor weather! I really hope you can return sometime to enjoy Malekula in its finest - Sunny days, light winds and maybe the odd whale going by. Thank you for leaving Malekula so beautifully clean too its really appreciated. Best regards Jacinta

Malekula in Shute Harbour is one of those places you just don't want to leave. The living area opens on to the balcony and quite literally brings the outdoors indoors. Even on the hottest days, cool breezes flow through the open plan house. The pool area shares the same amazing views over the Whitsunday islands and is a great haven after a day of fishing, snorkeling, diving or a quick day trip and lunch at Hamilton island. I spent 16 nights in paradise and I hope to return soon and again enjoy the best of the Whitsundays. I also look forward to dealing with Jacinta again, as she continues to maintain and improve this spectacular property.
Hi Mike Thank you for your fabulous feedback, not to mention also how beautifully you left Malekula thank you so much! Having Guests like your group is what makes my job so rewarding and I appreciate it. I look forward to hosting you again and maybe next time I can drum up some whales for you! (Provided it is the right time of year)! Bye for now Jacinta
We had the best time!
We, as a family of 7 (Myself, eldest pregnant daughter 26 & her partner, my two sons 23 & 21 and their partners), arrived at Malekula in the dark after a flight from Melbourne and a three and a half hour drive from Townsville to wake up in absolute Heaven.
Malekula was everything we could have possibly wished for. It was spacious with a warm and friendly vibe, well equipped and well furnished. The wooden floor and exposed beams with sea grass ceiling certainly gives it that relaxed mood and makes it feel like a special place.
The view first thing in the morning is 'died and gone to heaven' stuff. Whales breaching in the distance as the sun rises directly in front of you with islands in the distance. Does it really get any better?
We had the best time as a family over the 7 days that you could possibly imagine.
Thankyou Jacinta for all your support and letting us share this amazing place.
Everyone, bar none, wants to do it all again the same time next year so I'll be in touch soon.
HI Rory, My job is made easy when wonderful people like your group visit! The house was left beautifully and to have you enjoy it so much just makes it all the better. Hope to see you again some time. Bye for now Jacinta
