STARFISH ON STRADDIE

Sleeps4
Bedrooms 2
Bathrooms1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 6 nights

Overview

About the property

"Starfish" is a comfortable 2 bedroom cottage, close to natural bushland and only 1 kilometre from the beach (Please scroll down to bottom of first page to see exact location on local map)

Starfish has everything you need for a stress free beach holiday.

Winter brings the majestic Humpback Whales on their annual migration to Hervey Bay. A short drive to lookouts and from May to August, you will see them heading north. From August to November they return to their summer home in the Antarctic waters. Other whales can also frequent the crystal clear waters off North Stradbroke Island.

Cottage features

Quiet, peaceful location

Close to natural bush land

Low level, meaning easy luggage loading

Full kitchen facilities including: refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, electric frying pan, utensils, crockery

Air Conditioning

Cosy BBQ area

Native birds in area

Wildlife in close proximity regularly

Gated enclosure for a pet, also a tether provided. (Strictly only 1 dog permitted)

Island features

Pristine beaches

Beautiful headland gorge walk, including sightseeing

Picture yourself barefoot on a pristine beach, not a care in the world. Sun glistening through crystal clear blue water, dolphins surfing the waves. Seagulls, terns and oyster catches go about their day on the beach too. You may spot a kite or eagle gliding above the dunes.

This is a small taste of what is awaiting you. To experience all North Stradbroke Island has to offer, a pleasant trip across Moreton Bay is necessary. Regular vehicular ferries and passenger boats depart from Cleveland, a bay side area, south east of Brisbane. Ferry and passenger boat trips depart daily from 5am, until late, depending on day of week. More about that later, but it must be said that this relaxing trip will de-stress and unwind you in preparation for your stay in paradise.

A 15 minute drive from Dunwich, were the ferry and boat terminals are, is Starfish.

Excellent Little Place

  • 4 of 5

We just stayed a week at Starfish. It was quiet, cool and comfortable. We loved the little outdoor area. It was great for our little dog and suited our family. Really good value for money. We stayed in the week of the 8th of Jan 2018. Thanks Mal.

Nice little house, great location.

  • 3 of 5

The house was in a quiet and very good location. However the children's bunk-bed was so wobbly, they ended up sleeping on the floor and the on the couch with some cockroaches crawling around .

Owner's Response: Hi Lily, Thank you for letting us know the bunk bed needs repairs, though we would have repaired it during your stay if we knew, and if it was convenient for you. If the bunk is not repairable, we will replace it with a new one. We are sorry for the inconvenience and also for the cockroaches, which we will attend to promptly. They are a problem in these areas, but we will be sure to keep on top of it so it is not a problem for future guests. We are sorry we didn't get a chance to say hello, we have been very busy with the school holidays, and we have a newborn in the house. The weather was spectacular for your stay so we hope you enjoyed your time on the island. It is a great time of the year to visit with the whales passing by each day.

Enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is very cozy, clean and comfortable and has everything you need. The owners live next door and are always happy to answer any questions or to give a piece of advice. Also they run a seafood store, so we enjoyed fresh crabs and grilled prawns. The location is very quiet, green and just a few minutes drive form the beaches. We had a very lovely time!

Starfish was perfect for our needs. We planned to search the island as it was our first time there. The owner have the seafood shop next door which was also handy and there local knowledge was second to none.
