COOL AND CHARMING QUEENSLANDER BEACH HOUSE

  • 4 of 5
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.

GREAT PLACE!!

  • 4 of 5
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.

PEACEFUL HAVEN

  • 5 of 5
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

A REALLY GREAT HOLIDAY RENTAL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
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.
