Enjoy the tranquillity of Satinay Villa 639, situated at the very top of the Satinay Villas, Kingfisher Bay on World Heritage listed Fraser Island. Enjoy glimpses of the beach and sea views from the expansive balcony whilst hearing nothing but birdsong from the wide range of native birds inhabiting the area. This recently refurbished, 2 bedroom villa is luxuriously comfortable, sleeping up to 7 people and is ideal for a family, a group of friends, or a romantic getaway for 2. As the Villa is on the western end, it transitions seamlessly into the bushland, allowing you to enjoy the serenity of the location.
The Villa offers guests the use of a Barbeque in the Villa’s outdoor dining area for those nights when you don’t want to dine out, and don’t want to cook in the fully equipped kitchen. Inside the Villa is fully air conditioned and all the windows and doors are screened. The villa is also equipped with child friendly plates, bowls and cups so guests with young children don't need to stress about the potential for breakages with younger children.
The master bedroom has a king -sized bed, whilst the second bedroom has a king single bed and a bunk bed. The top bunk is rated to 80 kg and the lower bunk to 130 kg. A sofa bed is located in the lounge area to sleep an extra person. Use of the sofa bed incurs a cost of $50 per night due to extra cleaning. The two flat screen televisions, Foxtel and music player add to the quality of your stay. The Villa also has full laundry facilities.
We have moved away from the use of quilt covers on the beds and are using a triple sheet system which sees the linen completely replaced for each stay. In the event that the weather is cool, there are additional blankets in the cupboard for guest use.
A 3 minute stroll takes you down a scenic path through the bush to the beach. You can also take a stroll through the Resort reception and pool complex to the stunning Wallum area with lagoon, and onto the beach front near Sunset Bar. The walks in the resort are spectacular, with a hilltop lookout walk, or a walk down to the historic Makenzies Jetty within easy reach of the Villa. The track to the historic Z Special Forces historic site is also within easy reach of the Villa.
Guests have full use of the Resort facilities including restaurants, pools, heated spa and tour bookings. There is a range of activities available and you are free to participate in as many or as few of the activities as you choose. Some of the tours and/or activities do incur a cost and reception can provide you with the costs and make bookings for you.
The roads within the Resort are sealed and you will only require a 4WD if you intend going outside of the Resort area. If you are feeling adventurous and have your own 4WD, there are endless options to your Fraser Island adventure, go fishing, boating or whale watching, your options are endless.
If you don’t have your own 4WD and would like to explore the Island, the Beauty Spots Day Tour is very popular and allows you to relax whilst an experienced Fraser Island local takes care of all the driving, pointing out some of the best features of this World Heritage Listed island. If you would like to take the Beauty Spots Day trip during your stay, it is recommended that you pre-book as these fill quickly and you might not be able to get your preferred day if booking during your stay.
Between July and October each year, Humpback whales migrate to the warmer waters of the Great Barrier Reef to give birth. On their return journey, the whales and their calves spend time resting in Platypus Bay. Whales have occasionally been seen off the beach in front of the resort. Whale watching tours depart from Kingfisher Bay between August and late October. If you want to go whale watching during the season, it is best to pre-book to reserve your spot as these tours are also very popular and fill quickly.
Mobile phones work on the island although we cannot guarantee service with all service providers. The Resort has access to wifi for an additional cost payable directly to the resort. Mobile data does work at the villa, although the speeds may be slower then the mainland and we are unable to guarantee access to the network your phone is with.
A security deposit is payable on check in at the resort. The security deposit is $100 per night plus an additional $200 security deposit up to a maximum of $500 per stay. This is a pre-authorisation on your credit card and can be paid in cash if you do not have a credit card. Provided there are no outstanding charges at the end of your stay the security deposit is refunded. The security deposit is a requirement imposed by the Resort and is not charged by Tranquil Satinay Villa directly.
The thing that you will notice most about your stay in the Villa is the tranquillity.
