House rules
The host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
Tafrica is a comfortable beach home, within easy (5-10 min) walking distance of Home and Cylinder Beaches, shops and restaurants including the Straddie Hotel. It’s a 4 min drive or 20 min walk (past beautiful ocean views) to reach the famous Point Lookout Gorge Walk. Tafrica backs onto a forest gully and creek, which means we have frequent visitors in the backyard (kangaroos and koalas, sugar gliders and more). It is for this reason we cannot host pets at Tafrica.

The space
Tafrica has a large airy living / dining area, which extends onto a sizeable veranda. The house is accessed via a flight of stairs onto the veranda. There is a secure gate at the top of the stairs, which might come in handy if small children are staying.

The house is surrounded by native gardens and backs onto a forest gully reserve.

There is covered parking available under the house and off-street parking in the driveway.

The house is not designed for more than 5 guests and is not suitable for parties or large gatherings. We have excellent relationships with our neighbours, and trust you will respect their right to enjoy their homes and neighbourhood without encountering excessive noise or music.

Guest access
The house, veranda, yard and undercover parking are all available for your use.

Location

Point Lookout, Queensland, Australia

Tafrica is a comfortable beach home, within easy (5-10 min) walking distance of Home and Cylinder Beaches, shops and restaurants including the Straddie Hotel. It’s a 4 min drive or 25 min walk (past beautiful ocean views) to reach the famous Point Lookout Gorge Walk.

Tafrica backs onto a forest gully and creek, which means we have frequent visitors in the backyard (kangaroos and koalas, sugar gliders and more). Waking up to the birdsong is sometimes interrupted by the koala calls (quite startling if you’ve never heard it before!). It is for this reason that we unfortunately cannot host pets at Tafrica.

There is plenty of space for kids to play in the backyard, and room to find a peaceful nook to relax amongst the greenery or on the veranda. There’s a big old Hills Hoist out the back, near the hose, which makes removal of beach sand and salt from surf boards and bodies easy, before relaxing on the veranda. If you should encounter a rainy day, there is a selection of board games and dvds.

Please be aware that mobile service providers using the Optus network may have limited coverage on the island. There is good network coverage with providers using the Telstra network.

During your stay
We love Straddie and our little shack, and hope you will too! We want you to have a great holiday, and so I am available 24/7 on my mobile if you have any issues. If I’m not on the island, I have family and friends locally who can help out also.
