About This Listing
Point Lookout’s most striking house was designed in the Japanese tradition of elegant spaces and expressed structure to create a zone of quiet contemplation. An innovative mix of raw timber, hi-tech materials and huge openings to the native bush.
Cypress House designed by architect Drew Heath is best enjoyed opened up to take in the island breezes. It is a simple elegant space. Light the outside fire at night lie back and enjoy the evening sky. The south and north facing verandahs allow space to read and relax.
This is a whole house booking so you have access to everything.
Point Lookout is very small, you will feel at home quickly. Easy walking to all the beaches from Cypress House. Point Lookout is one of three villages on North Stradbroke Island, so don't forget to explore Dunwich with its museum full of indigenous history
Walking around Point Lookout is the way to go. There is a bus service to the other villages.
Other Things to Note
The house is designed by architect Drew Heath, who won the Wilkinson Award for excellence in residential architecture in 2013.
This is a no smoking home and garden area. Please no butts in the garden. Be respectful of our neighbours and wildlife.
House was comfortable and fairly quiet with a good bush view. Beach is a bit inaccessible.
Some found a separate toilet an inconvenience and there's no basin in the loo.
Beds and linen were very good and kitchen well stocked.
We did battle with mosquitoes with doors and windows open. Loved the outdoor showers and two decks.
All in all, pretty good
Cyprus House is the perfect place to relax and unwind on beautiful Stradbroke Island. The design of the house makes you feel you are one with nature with all the luxuries of staying in a beautiful home. The location is spot on for access to beaches and all the amenities of Point Lookout but far enough to make you feel like you could be anywhere in the world. Suzi made this first experience booking accommodation through airbnb really easy and made my four friends and I, feel very welcome to enjoy her home. If you enjoy luxury accommodation with everything you could ever need to cook up a feast, play games with family/friends or chill out listening to the vast array of music available… within a 5 minute walk of the beautiful Cylinder Beach, this is definitely the place for you. Thanks again Suzi, we can’t wait to go back!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Cypress House. An incredibly well designed, livable space that opens up in such a way that the breeze drifts right through. Living area wall panels all swing open to the bush surrounds. Many hours were spent listening to the wind in the trees all around, lying on the couch and marvelling at the architecture!
Despite having neighbours on each side and having the house fully open, we still felt hidden away and private. Even in the rain it was a pleasure to relax in this space.
We felt right at home here - the kitchen equipped with everything we needed to cook some amazing meals, and comfortable beds with a range of pillows to suit everyone.
Situated on a hill behind Cylinder Beach, it is a short walk down to the beach. Crystal clear waters, morning shade, gentle surf. Perfection!
Suzi was a responsive and helpful host, we had not a single problem or complaint, and the whole process was a pleasure.
A truly memorable holiday.
Suzi provided all necessary information for the house and it was easy both reaching and accessing it. The house is very special: all in wood and has a separate bath house and a hot water open air shower. The house is very quiet and a 10-15 min walk to beaches, depending on where you want to go. Stradbroke Island is a small jewel!
Personalised phone call before the stay. The house was exactly as described. Amazing outdoor location and a really relaxed atmosphere.
Suzi's home at Point Lookout is a great holiday house! Wonderful minimalist style with lots of personal touches that make staying a relaxing and easy experience. We will be back!! The kids insist!

About the Host, Suzi
Sydney born, so know it well. Have travelled a lot and love meeting people. I teach yoga all over Sydney, play tennis and also love to write. We lived in Queensland for a number of years and built Cypress House, on North Stradbroke Island. Drew Heath was our architect and builder. He won the Wilkinson Award for Residential Housing in 2013.
My hosting style is relaxed, informal and inclusive. So come stay with us here in Redfern, or enjoy an island vibe on Straddie in Cypress House.
