Looking for an old fashioned beach house? JoySeas is it. Located just 150 metres from the high tide mark of Emu Park main beach and a few hundred metres from the playground, pub, shops and Anzac Walk you will be close to everything. It's a basic older, no frills beach house, but it's clean and tidy with a few very rustic features. If it's glitz, glamour or hotel style accommodation you're after then best to keep searching. If simplicity and no fuss is your style, you will love Joyseas.

The space
Located just over the crest of the hill from the centre of Emu Park it is the perfect quiet location for a convenient family holiday or getaway for two.
Close enough to walk to everything (main supermarket is 650m away) but just away from the hustle, bustle and shop noise.
On a very busy weekend festivals and markets (700m) some of the cars may actually end up parking in our street. Emu Park Lifesavers is right at the end of the street (170m) so it is a perfect location for lifesaving carnivals.
The Pine Beach Hotel is 300m from our front door.
Our place is an old weatherboard Queenslander cottage. It was originally located at the Emu Park Railway station as a crew quarters. It was moved to the current location in the 1970s and turned into a quintessential Queensland Beach shack the style that many new builds try to recreate. She has old weatherboards, old windows and tongue and groove walls. There is polished floorboards with cracks in places. It hasn't been restored to "Home Beautiful" standards, but it's a had a fresh lick of paint and some work done.
You can hear the ocean best at night time crashing in against the rocks.
You will be blessed with a cooling sea breeze most of the time although we can't guarantee the weather in a Queensland summer. The house is security screened so you can leave the windows open and safely enjoy the sounds of the sea and breeze blowing. New ceiling fans have just been installed in the bedrooms and lounge. (December 2020)
It is not a sleek contemporary new build, with shiny glossy surfaces. The dust may creep in the cracks and the sand will blow in the windows because there is literally a sand dune across the street, that's how close we are to the beach.
Have a BBQ on the front verandah and watch the moon rise over the ocean from our front yard. If you are lucky enough to be there for a full moon it is spectacular to watch rise over the Ocean straight down our street.

I love to travel but rarely get a chance for long trips that aren't related to our small business. We love to get away as a family, which these days is our three adult daughters. We usually have their partners or friends too. We enjoy small breaks, work trips and an occasional longer get away.
We are a homely family, into get togethers rather than parties. We love homes where you can appreciate time together and relax.
