Overview

About the property

This is the house that others dream about! This architecturally designed, absolute beachfront home is located at the island's most coveted sandy swimming beach. With a feel of luxury beach chic, it has a modern kitchen, 2.5 bathrooms, three spacious bedrooms, and inside and outside options for relaxing and dining.

Villa Macleay is a spacious and sprawling home located on Coondooroopa Drive, Macleay Island. Set on a stunning northerly aspect, Villa Macleay takes full advantage of the expansive views of Moreton Bay, crisp summer breezes, and warm winter sun.

We are located right beside Dalpura Park - the best sandy swimming beach on Macleay Island. From the deck, you look straight across to Coochiemudlo Island and view North Stradbroke island to the right and Redland Bay to the left. You can also see famous Peel Island on a clear day.

Villa Macleay is architecturally designed to showcase the casual, light and airy indoor and outdoor living areas that provide a retreat for the whole family. Featuring impressive hardwood timber floors and tiled bathrooms, each space has been carefully considered to maximise the home's livability and luxury.

You will spend most of your time on our expansive covered timber deck. Here, you can dine at our 8 seater table, relax on the sun lounges, or sit at the wraparound bar and enjoy a breakfast coffee or a sunset drink whilst you take in the bay views. Sunsets are spectacular!

Enjoy high tide waves lapping our garden wall, stroll out at low tide to hunt for soldier crabs. Go swimming, explore the mangroves on the complimentary surf skis or throw a line in to catch some delicious fresh bream. If you are an avid birdwatcher, look out for Kookaburras, Curlews, Rainbow Lorikeets, Galahs, Pelicans, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos , and visiting seabirds from Siberia. If you're lucky, you'll even see Dolphins cruising through. View all this from the deck without even moving a muscle! For the more active, why not take a leisurely stroll up the road to Pat's Park. One of the highlights of the year is the very moving Anzac Day Dawn Service on April 25, held at Pat's Park.

When it's time to retreat after a busy day relaxing or enjoying the water you have access to:

1. A master bedroom featuring a king size bed, ensuite and walk-in robe

2. A double bedroom featuring a queen size bed and built-in robes

3. A spacious share room featuring a queen size bed, a double bed and a single bed.

**** Please check out my other listings for fewer guests.

1. Two bedrooms and the entire house for up to 4 guests.

2. One bedroom and the entire house for up to 2 guests.

Fitted out with every kitchen and laundry appliance that you could possibly need, luxury furnishings and high thread count sheets and towels, Villa Macleay has every requirement for a casually elegant and well deserved beach break. This premium quality beach house is destined to be much sought after by the discerning holiday maker. Villa Macleay establishes a new benchmark in luxury beach house style on Macleay Island - We are delighted to welcome you to our Paradise!

Villa Macleay is a stunning property in a unique beach side location. We can’t wait to visit again!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family hasn’t seen each other for some time and we chose Villa Macleay for our reunion.

We followed Sue’s easy instructions and caught the barge to the island. As we drove in to the property, it took our breath away! The place is immaculate and we barely left the deck over the next three days.

It was so wonderful to watch our two children chase soldier crabs on the beach and be safe and happy whilst we watched them from the deck.

Perfect Family Weekend Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to enjoy a long weekend with extended family at Villa Macleay in April 2017 and were surprised by the level of service, comfort and generally welcome nature of the hosts. We arrived after dark on the Friday evening and were greeted by Sue & Peter on the rear deck who had already turned on internal lights, lit mossie coils on the deck (as preventative measure) and filled the freezers ice tray for our stay. After a full tour of the house and facilities we were able to relax and enjoy 3 nights with our trailer boat anchored directly out the front on the sandy beach without issue. Our younger family members played endlessly on the grassed area and beach overlooked by the covered deck with grandparents reliving their own youth with their grandkids searching by torchlight for soldier crabs on low tide. The house is very well maintened, includes everything you could image (eg. battery candle for table settings) and easily accomodates large families. We were joined by my sister in law, her family and my parents in-laws for dinner one evening with the kitchen and deck easily catering for the large dinner group.

Only comment to the negative would be suggestion for installation of blinds on skylights which permit light into the ground floor living areas as well as 3rd sleeping area. Not a real issue in the cooler months with later sunrise but could be problematice in summer months.

Definately plan to return!

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Macleay Island holiday! Have already re-booked another stay. Clean and comfortable it exceeded our expectations :) The only thing I would have loved is a bathtub for our daughter :)

Beautiful House, Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from Macleay Island after staying at Villa Macleay. What an awesome holiday. Everything you could possibly think of was supplied. Very, very comfortable house. Between the kayaking and swimming directly out the front, we barely left the deck. Highly recommend visiting this hidden paradise.
