About Sue Hawkins
My husband Peter and I are passionate about home renovation and traveling the world. We built our stunning beach house 23 years ago and we have decided it is now time to start sharing it with other people. Over the last 2 decades, Villa Macleay has been a haven for our children and now our grandchildren. Likewise, we are excited to announce that we are also now listing our beautifully renovated, art deco New Farm - Brisbane apartments, 'Bursley' and 'Aotea'. We believe in presenting our properties in a style that we would like to stay in ourselves. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Sue Hawkins purchased this House in 1995

Beautiful house in a beautiful location
We had a wonderful 5 nights in this house. It is even more beautiful than the photos suggest. The location and easy access to the beach are amazing. The kids really enjoyed using the kayaks supplied, in the still water which is in view of the house. The house is beautifully maintained and has everything you need to self-cater. The house easily sleeps 9 as advertised. Macleay island itself is also well equipped, with a good supermarket at reasonable prices, and a few options of places to eat out. We thoroughly enjoyed our time away with 2 families together. We plan to return.
Thank you Andrae.
Peter and I are thrilled that you all enjoyed our 'little piece of paradise'.
We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Amazing! Fantastic family holiday!
We had an amazing holiday at Villa Macleay. The house we perfectly situated in front of a quiet calm beach. It was perfect for the kids. There is a lot of sea life, sting rays, turtles swimming around. The villa has two kayaks that were great for further exploring.
The house itself was great for entertaining. We spent most of the time on the large deck looking out at the ocean.
Overall we had one of the best family holidays ever. It has everything to cater for kids and adults. I would highly recommend visiting and staying at the Villa.
Beautiful property & hosts
Exceptionally well stocked for a holiday home, could not have asked for anything more. From the sand bucket at the bottom of the steps to the coffee plunger in the kitchen EVERYTHING has been considered. Our hosts were on site to greet us and made us feel very welcome. The location is outstanding and encourages plenty of beach time at both high and low tide. The kids were stoked to have a go at the surf kayaks and have free access to the beach all day every day. The deck is unbeatable for an all day and everchanging view. And the outlook from the bedrooms upstairs is simply wonderful. Highly recommended accommodation choice 👍🏻
Villa Macleay is a stunning property in a unique beach side location. We can’t wait to visit again!
Our extended family hasn’t seen each other for some time and we chose Villa Macleay for our reunion.
We followed Sue’s easy instructions and caught the barge to the island. As we drove in to the property, it took our breath away! The place is immaculate and we barely left the deck over the next three days.
It was so wonderful to watch our two children chase soldier crabs on the beach and be safe and happy whilst we watched them from the deck.
The BBQ on the deck
Great location with excellent facilities.
