House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
We are close to the beach, shops, bus service, bush walks, National Park, an aquarium and art galleries. You’ll love our place because of the peace and quiet of the bush, lovely pool and easy reach of all the attractions of Magnetic Island. We are nestled up against the National Park. Our private self contained apartment is good for couples and solo adventurers. No smoking on the property. We are happy to arrange bag drop if you'd like to come early and can usually pick guests up from the ferry.

The space
The room is a private self contained studio apartment- a large, airy room with a double bed, bedside tables and comfy chair with an ensuite and kitchen/laundry. The rustic kitchen is equipped with fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle, BBQ, and hot plates. Utensils and crockery supplied. It is ground level of a pole frame home. Owners reside upstairs. The garden is a bush garden and is accessible to guests with a lovely inground swimming pool. Poolside furniture facilitate relaxing under the shade or getting as much sun as you desire. NB We are adding on a deck and garage but will not make construction noise while you are here.

Guest access
Car parking on site. There is a private entrance and the room will be open on arrival. Mark and Thalie live upstairs and there is no access to this space except by invitation. We may need to access our drinks fridge/freezer - located in the laundry/kitchen but will negotiate this access and respect your privacy. The workshop space is not available for guest use. Guests are welcome to use the pool and yard.

Other things to note
Free parking is available at the Car and Passenger Ferry - Fantasea Cruising Magnetic

Paid parking and more frequent ferry trips are available at Sealink - see the links in 'Getting Around'.

It is stinger season here from October-May. You can hire stinger suits (lycra body suits) at many stores. Snorkelling is great and all the gear can be hired. Dive trips are also reasonable and there are a couple of different options. Recreational boats, jetskis, paddleboards etc can also be hired.

Push bikes available for hire from us- $10 per day (1 or 2 available)

I am a teacher working in full time in Townsville. My husband Mark is a builder. He has built our home. We love the bush environment and so go camping and walking as much as we can. We enjoy a glass of wine, movies and cooking healthy foods.

During your stay
We are happy to talk to guests about the Island and help to plan their stay - local knowledge can make a positive impact. We will leave guests to have a private stay if they would prefer to keep to themselves.
