Interaction with guests
We respect our guests' privacy, but love to meet new people. When we are resident in the house, we are open to sharing a glass of wine and nibbles on our deck, or a dinner under the stars. We do have a young son (born in September 2014). He sleeps well through the night, but he wakes up bright and early!
Dunwich is situated on beautiful North Stradbroke Island, convenient to beaches and boat ramps. Stradbroke Island Bay Views is centrally located in easy walking distance from shops and cafes as well as local art galleries and the museum. Straddie, as the locals call it, is a relaxing fishing and beach destination, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Two peaceful bayside beaches are only minutes away, perfect for swimming at high tide or exploring at low. Attractions in Dunwich include the native wildlife, with kangaroos and koalas often seen along the shoreline and in parks.
It is a short 20 minute trip by bus or car to nearby Point Lookout and Amity Point, on the ocean side of the island, where you can enjoy surf beaches and an array of dining options.
Brown Lake, a large natural fresh water lake is less than 10 minutes drive from the apartment while direct four wheel drive access to Main Beach is only 15 minutes away.
The property is located less than three minutes from the local boat ramp opening onto the many fishing spots that Moreton Bay has to offer.
The water taxi from the mainland is a comfortable walking distance from the house.
For complete freedom, email us and ask about including a rental car in your booking. Alternatively, we are conveniently located a short walk from the ferry terminals and also a public bus stop.
A vehicle is a great way to get the most out of your Straddie experience with daily vehicle barge services to the island. Conventional roads link the islands main centres of Dunwich, Amity and Point Lookout. For the more adventurous a 4wd vehicle will provide access to the more remote sections of the island’s stunning beaches.
Water taxi’s departing from Cleveland also service the island if you do not wish to bring a vehicle. The apartment is a comfortable walking distance from the taxi terminals. Regular bus services provide access to Point Lookout and Amity and local taxis are also available.
Search “Stradbroke ferries” for details of barge services or “Stradbroke ferries” or “Straddie Flyer” for water taxi services.
The Straddie Flyer water taxi service also provides a free bus service from the Cleveland train station which meets many of the Cleveland trains. (see website for details)
