My personally designed home has a resort feel designer hoe with an infinity pool surrounded by island wildlife. Five minute walk to ferry, supermarket, restaurants, and beach. Designed to capture tropical island breezes and encourage wildlife. Shared bathroom with double spa bath/double shower/seperate toilet. Hammock and sun lounges. Early arrivals and late checkouts are included!

The space
Very quiet dead end street next to national park yet close to the ferry and the beach (only a few minutes walk). Decks with hammocks front and back so you can enjoy the sun and shade. Bird watch from the rear deck or pool!

Guest access
Bathroom, kitchen, toilet, garden, living, dining spaces (indoor and outdoor) decks, hammocks, herb and fruit from the garden (seasonally available). I have snorkelling gear and stinger suits you are welcome to use!

Other things to note
Two ferries operate frequently to the island - Sealink (25 minutes travel and more frequent) and the fantasea car ferry (40 minutes travel time and less frequent). Both ferries arrive in Nelly Bay and 5 minutes walk from my home.

Very quiet street yet close to all amenities. All are 5-10 minutes walk away. ATM, bakery, bank, cafes supermarket, ice cream, real estate, ferry, fish & chips, souvenir shops, post office. Dive operators on the island can take you to the Reef and world famous Yongala wreck (allow extra days in your stay in case of rough weather). I can direct you to the best snorkelling and reef walking areas based on prevailing tides and weather.

During your stay
As a marine biologist who has lived on the island for ten years I can suggest places only known to locals. Best snorkelling, hikes and how to get around the island. I'm happy to show you parts of the island when I can!

If you're travelling solo I'm happy to be your snorkel, dive or hiking buddy!
