Delightful home with terrace for al fresco dining, fully furnished in 2006, metres from beach, and adjacent to islands, the boat ramp, tennis court and great barrier reef. This home has ocean views from the terrace, and is pet friendly. Villa Fay's bathroom facilities were extensively renovated in 2014. For those looking for an alternative holiday from the tourist crowds in tropical North Queensland, Villa Fay and delightful Forrest Beach is your solution.
We are very pleased to share this enjoyable spot and loved family home with our guests
Steven Barra purchased this house in 1980
Villa Fay is a delightful home full of energy and tranquility, within metres of Forrest Beach
Large open spaces with al fresco dining in front of the ocean.
Villa Fay was the perfect holiday house for a peaceful and relaxing break away with the family. It was lovely and clean and our family of 4 loved the open, airy feel of the home. The bathroom and toilet has recently been beautifully renovated - the shower is huge! The bedrooms are big and are airconditioned and the beds very comfortable. There are ceiling fans throughout and we found the home catches the breeze well. The front deck is shaded from the hot, afternoon sun and is the perfect place to sit any time of the day and take in the ocean view.
The house is situated literally within a 1 minute walk to the beach and only a short walk to the local shop and cafe. Our kids loved spending time swimming and searching for sand dollars, starfish and olive shells at low tide.
Everything you'd want and need is available in this house and we loved that at night all we heard was the sound of waves crashing on the shore.
Thanks Steven. We will definitely be back.
Villa Kay is beautifully situated close to the beach and shops in a small and friendly community. Our boat and cars were easily parked under the quite high house which was convenient for access when loading and unloading our belongings. The house has large front and back verandas which we thoroughly enjoyed at all times of the day. We indulged in long relaxing walks along the beach and several walking tracks through the suburbs, bush land. The house has a very nice new modern bathroom and toilet. We had everything we needed, ie washing machine, dryer, large television, fridge, microwave, oven and cook top with a great hot water system. It was also great that Steven checked with us via email to make sure we had everything we needed.
We stayed in Villa fay for two and a half months.
Our family (of 4) really enjoyed this quiet place. It was clean and had a lot of space, and the neighbours are really helpful and friendly.
The children appreciated their big clean and air-conditioned room. The enjoyed the beach as well (great fishing).
Steven, the owner, was very comprehensive and open to our needs.
We had a great time in this small community and we really recommend the place.

We stayed at the Villa Fay July/ August 2009, we found the very spacious, with all mod cons. The location so peaceful and quiet.
Tourist attractions leaflets covering all the surrounding areas were available in the house ;which we found very useful. The local cafe also offered great food ,reasonably priced with free delivery service.
We were touring from Brisbane towards North Queensland, this was a welcome retreat, we were able to rest our weary legs and catch with laundry facilities.
Owner Steven, and local Estate agents very helpful, would highly recommend and would definitely use again
What a wonderful find!
We were looking for a property to use as a base whilst we were undertaking a two week project in the north Queensland region.
Having used the Holiday-Rentals site on numerous occasions during our travels into Europe (and never having been disappointed), we decided to search for our Australian rental through you as well - again your service has over-delivered.
One of the outstanding features for me was to have such a beautifully appointed kitchen, with a range of quality implements, and even a good sized teapot.
The comfort of the bed in the main bedroom was also outstanding.
The house itself is extremely comfortable, without being precious, so it's possible to really relax and enjoy a great holiday in this part of Australia.
The views over the Coral Sea are quite spectacular from the picture windows and front verandah. For those interested in fishing, beach walking and just taking time out to recharge batteries the location is a real haven.
We operate an internet based business, and were able to locate a great service that is able to offer in-house wireless broadband facilities for those who might need to travel with their own computer.
We were so impressed with what we experienced in this great house that we have already made enquiries about the opportunity of a longer stay during 2009.
Villa Fay is located at delightful Forrest Beach, North Queensland, approximately 15 minutes from the picturesque sugar cane town of Ingham and only three hours from Cairns and approximately 1 hour from Townsville. Forrest Beach is a short distance from Hinchinbrook Island, the largest island national park in Australia and the great barrier reef is easily accessible as are the towns of Cardwell and Halifax. Close by is Wallaman Falls, the longest single drop in the southern hemisphere, and Ingham hosts the Italian Australian festival in May of each year. The zone is a paradise for fishermen and nature lovers.
