Places to stay in Russell Island
A one bedroom cottage by the sea. Recently refurbished. Fully self contained. Russell Island has many amenities , check out Russell island on the web .
Quiet and peaceful.
  • Im pretty keen to come back and add this place into our rotation. I would think twice about being here in the middle of Summer though. While it does have an aircon upstairs where the bedroom area is, it doesnt make it downstairs. We were lucky that it was overcast and very very windy so it wasnt hot but on a normal Summer day it would be a bit rough in there. Aside from that, I thought it was pretty cool they have such a big range of goodies and they just ask you to leave a note of anything used and some $$ to help replace it. I thought that was a nice touch that will help others if they forget something simple. The view at the back verandah onto Straddie is great. Overall if you want somewhere small and quiet its great and Miss Y and I look forward to returning.

  • Perfect waterfront cottage for a lovely weekend getaway! Trevor & Vicki’s is just enough for two- beautifully appointed, clean, stylish-fresh cotton sheets on a dream bed with fabulous views! We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. Highly recommended.

    Narelle & Geoff2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • When you visit this cottage you will be stunned by the little extras that Trevor and Vicki have left around the place. You will be extremely happy with how clean this gorgeous cottage is and the views from the inviting deck or the little area you can sit by the water. The area itself is so quiet, private and peaceful. So if you need to recharge your batteries this is definitely the place to go.

  • "Cottage by the sea" is a great little cottage on the waters edge. Very quiet and peaceful place to unwind. Very clean and tidy and well catered for. Thanks Trevor and Vicki for making my stay in your place very enjoyable. Cheers David

    Lovely slow pace on the island. Queensland as it used to be. Fishing from the jetty at sunset. Your so close to Brisbane but you would have to drive 2hrs inland to get the same tranquility and then it's hot n dry, we are in the middle of Moreton Bay!

  • Great place for quiet getaway

    Mick2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely quiet place with lots of birdlife. We loved sitting outside in the evening on the porch and the owners provided mosquito coils. However it's best to take your own strong insect repellant with lots of DEET as the biting midges come out in force mornings and evenings.

    Paul2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely cottage exceeds expectations. I've been feasting on ripe produce from the garden . The birdsong at dawn and dusk is amazing. All the comforts of your own retreat. I'm coming back next year !

  • Great place to chill out and spend time with mates. Taxi is flat fare $5 anywhere on the island so super handy to get to/from ferry. The jetty is great for fishing but bring sunscreen & insect repellent. We would stay again if heading to Russell.

    Michael2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place and location. Great for the boys weekend away. Loved the games room and relaxing off the jetty in the afternoon.

    Jen2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

  • What a wonderful space! Roomy, airy, water views, comfortable beds, everything you need is right there. We were very fortunate to manage to jag a massive mud crab in the pots available from the house, which was a sensational bonus. Wonderful spot for a weekend away with the pooch. Great house and we will be back. Heads up if you're planning a trip there soon, the mozzies and sandflies were ruthless but there is heaps of spray and coils etc there. Thanks for sharing your lovely slice of Karra heaven with us Christina and Kevin. We will definitely be back as we're pretty keen to test out the fireplace in winter :D

    Danni2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Really beautiful spot! The house is lovely and spacious and the access to the sea is great. Highly recommend (there are plenty of mosquitos though so definitely bring bug spray!)

    Greg2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Christina's place was a perfect little getaway having all the essentials. And plenty of drinking spots! Kayaks and bikes Wean Were a extra bonus. We especially recommend catching the free inter island ferry and cycling around all the islands - great fun and a perfect way to explore.

    Adrian2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for your amazing place truly enjoy celebrating father’s day weekend away with our dog as well! You got everything we needed in the house.

    Grace2019-09-01T00:00:00Z

    Fabinho2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for peace and tranquility, this is the spot. House was very clean and had everything you might need. Fireplace and outdoor space was awesome

    Yvette2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great getaway, we’ll set up location. Loved having a fireplace. We used the bikes to ride around the island . Kayaks were great, takes about 1.5 hours to paddle around the island, is a bit choppier on the Russell island side. Highly recommend

    David2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our few days on Karragarra Island. The holiday home is set up like a house with lots of simple comforts and things to make for a fun stay like hammocks, loads of games, a dart board and lots of sitting spaces in and out of the house. There's lots to do if you enjoy the outdoors with the mangroves just a few metres from the house where you can kayak, fish or go for a walk. The inter island ferry is free to use and makes for a fun day away from the island if you are wanting to explore another of the islands. There are few bikes and we enjoyed riding them as a fun way to see the island and explore the surrounds. The only downside as you'll see from other reviews are the mozzies on the island as it's only a small island and surrounded by mangroves. If you cover yourself in repellant and use mozzie coils and other repellants, you'll have a much better time. Overall, a great little island to getaway to if you are looking to escape the rush of city life, meet some friendly locals and enjoy a little peace of paradise.

Check out the front deck as the sun rises form behind Straddie in spectacular technicolour while you enjoy an early morning coffee. Also enjoy the deck in the evening as the light fades and the flames from the BBQ cook your delicious al fresco meal.

    I love the piece and quiet on the island. The roads are not busy and walking/running/jogging/cycling is simple with pavements along all roadways. You can walk from our property down to the Yacht Squadron at the point of the island. Or just across the road to Pinnacle Farm Park for some ridding lessons. You can have endless fun with a boat, jet-ski or dingy as the island is accessible from the water at hundreds of ramps and beaches around the island so you can potter around the mangroves, strike out for the open sea or fish from your boat. Find out how to catch a local crab or two. Head over to Straddie for the surf beaches and whale watching. Take a swim at the Russell School pool which is open to the public, or rent the tennis court and equipment. A sailing and kayak club has recently opened at the southern part of the island at Sandy Beach. Call in at the community centre on Jackson and check out the op-shop for a surprisingly wide selection of clothing, crockery and general bric-a-brac. Check out Aunty Alice's for the great value daily specials and the big, all-day breakfast. I love their egg and bacon roll for breakfast as it come with a smiley face!! The RSL and the Bowl's club are a must for food and drink. Billy's Bistro on Anzac Drive serves a variety of staple dishes including ubiquitous fish and chips! If you are feeling more adventurous then you can get in the car and visit the attraction on the Gold Coast such as the many theme parks, Natural wonders such as The Natural Arch, O'Reilly's and Mount Warning. Visit Surfers Paradise, Brisbane or Mount Tambourine. The list is endless.
  • Absolutely perfect

    John2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing, with the most gorgeous views and everything you could need already there. You could walk in with just your clothes and that is all you need. The birdlife is amazing, the verandah is so peaceful and lovely to sit there and just take it all in. Bernice left us a bottle of champagne to say welcome, which was an amazing touch. Bernice was very responsive to questions over the weekend and understanding of our needs. 100% recommended!

    Brodie2020-01-27T00:00:00Z

  • We were so lucky to be the first people to stay at Tracey's extraordinarily beautiful cottage. The work completed makes this a five star experience right down to the very comfortable beds through to the spotlessly clean bathrooms. Tracey also made our furry friend very welcome by providing him a bed and blanket. Our boys also loved the place and felt very relaxed. The views from the cottage are exceptional. You have unimpeded 180 degree views of the peninsula. We highly recommend a stay at Tracey's beautiful cottage, she makes you feel very welcome and provided you with everything you could possibly need.

    Jason2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Tracey, has a beautiful pace which we enjoyed so much we decided to stay another night. The cottage is spectacular and the views are amazing. She even made our furry friend especially welcome by providing his bedding and extra food to cover the night we had planned for.

Soup and sandwiches and salads worked well for us. Our hosts were very friendly and very responsive. We also loved using their great kayaks. Enjoyed the numerous birds and their birdsongs.

    My place is close to ferry transport, shopping facilities, parks, tennis courts, art and culture and outdoor activities.. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the contact with nature, privacy and relaxation.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
    Walk from public transport ferry terminal, walk to shops, access to Morton Bay canoeing and kayaking. Private setting adjacent Jock Kennedy reserve and boat ramp and the koala regeneration reserve.
  • Funny place to stay Very convenient. But need air conditioning

    Irek2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Very relaxing and good fishing.

    Peter2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • This beatuifully eclectic shack is in the most serene quiet location. Comfy bed and hot water shower. Host were a pleasure to communicate with.

    Miss Lee2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful island paradise . Peaceful ,private and serene. The gorgeous water views from the deck , lovely gardens make it a perfect place to chill and unwind . Finding it hard to leave 🌞

    Katarina2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet shack near town centre. Has two comfortable bedrooms, a kitchen and living area. Walking distance to shops and the jetty. Solar heating in shower makes it a bit picky but just listen to Bob’s instructions when using. There’s also another shower out back which you can use. Communication was great. Would recommend staying here.

    Emma2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The place is eclectic...relaxing...and very authentic to it period ..would definitely recommend anyone to stay ..

    CHRIS And KAREN2019-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at the shack was a perfect antidote to a hectic year. A chance to clear the mind in the peaceful surrounds while sitting on the deck watching the boats sail by. Lovely to be situated so close to the waterfront with your own private jetty. Bob couldn’t be more helpful even meeting us off the ferry on the first day to show us the way to the house.

    Debra2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Fisherman's Shack is unique I wanted something completely different from my relatives' places on the Northern Beaches. The Shack is rustic but comfortable. There are of course mossies and midges - this is Sub - Tropical Queensland. The amount of wild-life is fantastic especially birds and butterflies. Bob's art adorns the property. I sent daily photos to my family in the UK and we had a competition to rename the shack - Steptoe's Dream won. I actually spent a month in the shack trying to imagine how it was in Oz 100 years ago. I used lots of herbs and spices from Nell's garden. l didn't do a lot of fishing off the private jetty but spent a lot of time reading on the verandah. Altogether a super experience - definitely not 5 star luxury but something completely different. My thanks to Bob (John's representative).

    If you want peace and quiet and a wonderful place to regroup, Lamb Island is the perfect spot. Honey Gem Cottage is situated within 5 mins walking distance to the water and five minutes to the nearby ferry terminal. We are 40 mins from Brisbane and same to the Gold Coast. Lamb Island is one of the smaller islands in Moreton Bay and as such, does not have shopping centres but we do have a small convenience store for supplies. There are many clubs for meals on the islands if you wish to not cook.
    To get here you need to catch a passenger ferry from Weinam Creek, Redland Bay or you can bring your own car over on the Vehicular Barge. When you arrive we will collect you if we are here of course, or there is a wonderful bus service that will bring you to the house for $5.00 per person. Lamb Island has its own Recreation Club open for meals and we also have a tennis court, plus a swimming enclosure with bbq. Nearby on Russell Island there is a public pool and of course the inter island ferries are free. Woolworths deliver to the island as well! Karragarra also has a lovely swimming area with sandy beach and a BBQ. So as you can see, there is plenty to do or do nothing. Your fur babies are more than welcome. The property is fenced all around. We live on the island as well so we can answer any questions you might have. We love the peace and quiet, bird life, the rural existence, no traffic and beautiful views. We are sure you will too! PS We are renovating so the decor will be a little different. More photos coming soon.
    We love living here and even though there are not many shops, the ferries are free inter island if you wish to go grab some shopping, or visit one of the local Bowls Clubs for a meal. On Macleay Island for instance, the Macleay Bowls Club have a bus that will collect you and drop you back at the ferry free.
  • We loved staying at Murray and Nannette's place. It is close to the ferry and has the most spectacular views. The inter island ferries are free and easy to use. We visited all four islands by ferry and even experienced riding on a trial driverless bus at Karra which was also free. The clubs and pubs are fun to visit on three of the islands, and walks around the islands are lovely. It is a lovely place to spend time and chat with friendly locals as there are not many tourist. Thank you Nannette and Murray. Nina and Bob Xx

  • Excellent value. We were visiting friends in Eagleby so Luke's place was ideal. Everything was clean and tidy. We didn't do any cooking but pots, pans etc were there if we had wanted to. The coffee machine was a sophisticated piece of kit. Luke's a friendly guy who gives you your own space - a thumbs up from us.

    Dave2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Luke is an excellent host and an all around nice guy. His place is small but has only a few furniture items and absolutely no clutter, so it felt spacious. We had our own private toilet/shower just outside our room which was great. We shared the kitchen and fridge. Luke is easy to talk to and very accommodating. We stayed more than a week whilst waiting to move into our new unit, longer than we originally planned. My daughter from overseas arrived during our last two nights and Luke graciously provided an extra camping bed for her to sleep on in the lounge room. I highly reccommend Luke and his place. Would stay again.

    Melody2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The host was very nice and considerate. Due his hospitality the stay was safe and pleasant. I would recommend this place.

  • A great place to stay. Plenty of room and great views!

    Matt2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house was clean and tidy. There are a lot of mosquitoes so make sure you take precautions as there is no shops on the island. It is the perfect destination if you just feel like sitting back and relaxing. The swimming spot was nice but a fair walk for young children. Very short drive though. We had a great time, was lovely to have all the family in the one place.

    Lauren2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. Great for families with beautiful views looking out over the bay. The bikes and kayak were a great touch to the place for the kids to use and plenty of room for everyone. I would highly recommendthis place to anyone wanting to go away and relax and fish.

  • What an amazing home away from home with so many personal touches. It’s spacious, modern and super clean and I just love the balcony and watching the ferry go by with the chirping of birds. The host and family were super friendly, kind and helpful that you feel like you’ve made an amazing friendship. If you decide on Russell Island this would be my number one choice in the future🙌

    The best of Macleay Island. Modern renovation with gorgeous antique furniture. Hardwood floors, powerful AC, and luxurious imported sheets. This beautiful studio apartment is a luxurious and romantic couples retreat. Stunning views complete with jetty, heated pool, fire-pit and mature fruit trees. Steps from the golf course. Holiday on the glorious Southern Moreton Bay Islands, the marina is just a 40min drive from Brisbane or the Gold Coast! visit us @cottontreeislandhouse on Facebook & Insta
    Pool Jetty (bring your fishing/crabbing gear/kayak) Front & Back Gardens BBQ Outdoor Shower Off-Street Parking ALL AT OWN RISK - NO SUPERVISION - AS IS - USE YOUR BEST JUDGMENT *•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*• TWO OPTIONS You may have noticed, we also have a “Romantic Suite” listed. https://abnb.me/EVmg/yeVMOZ5wSI The main house is two stories; it is the ground floor that is for rent as the family suite. The family suite is on the pool level. Therefore, if you plan to spend lots of time sitting on the porch or sitting by the pool, you will prefer this unit. The romantic guest unit is separate, and accessed by a side staircase. It is set high above the backyard, overlooking the fire pit and the jetty. The pool and jetty are shared between these units, when they are both rented. The romantic suite is truly gorgeous. If you appreciate lovely antique furniture and are looking for a quiet and sophisticated getaway, then the romantic suite is the perfect choice. Both units have a brand new small refrigerator, a toaster, a kettle and tea/coffee/sugar/salt/pepper/cutlery/plates/serving dishes/tea towels etc. The family suite also has a microwave. The BBQ is large, with a grill and flat plate - gas. Neither unit has a “real kitchen.” If you plan to dine out while you are on the island, I suggest making a dinner reservation. I recommend the Golf and Bowls Clubs, Pub and Blue Parrot all serve surprisingly good and fresh food. Both pizza and bakery offer free deliver. (No salad, just pizza & garlic bread). FYI No TV - lots of peace, water and birds. No WiFi - however great phone reception from Vodafone, Optus, and Telstra. No problem using your phone to hotspot for internet, Netflix, etc. The top floor of the home is not for rent. However, it is also not occupied, so the home is private and quiet.
    The property is on MacLeay Island. On the water, across from the golf club. 50 meters from 9 hole golf course. Wonderful family weekend away with golf, fishing, swimming, nature. FREE shuttle bus services to and from - Pub Paradise - Bay Island Golf Club. (Family Friendly enviroment) - Macleay Bowls Club. (Family Friendly enviroment) Property is 150 meters from "water side" Coroboree Parkland, with large grass area to kick a footy, play criket, throw a frisbee, etc. Playground with swings for the young ones. BBQ facilities for lunch sausage sizzle incase the kids dont want to leave . Good spot for a fish at high tide.
  • Lovely, cozy place with wonderful comfy bed. The host even kindly drove us to the ferry when we checked out, so hospitable. My partner and I really enjoyed our stay. Thank you again!!

    Genevieve2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Wendy2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • This property was lovely and we will definitely consider staying here again should we need a get away from the city. The Romantic Suite is perfect for a couple, and very clean. We really enjoyed the little private jetty and beautiful view. The Island itself is super relaxed and quiet. We found the SMBI Little Bus to be the best way to get around aside from the courtesy bus from both the Bowls Club, Golf Club and Pub. The Pub by far had the best food and it was definitely worth while bringing some food across from the main island with us (there is a grocer on the island but has limited opening times). Thank you for having us :)

  • It was an absolute delight staying at Jane's cottage. She went above and beyond for us and was incredibly helpful! She picked us up and dropped us off at the ferry, she gave us a tour of the island and pointed out all the great places we should visit, and she even had a beautiful breakfast for us in the morning which had an abundance of options! The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities you need you for a short or long stay! The location was superb - a very convenient walk to everywhere we needed to go. I would highly recommend Jane's cottage and could not thank Jane enough for her kind hospitality.

    Michelle2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

And please stay safe. Very cute and cosy, 2 storey cottage with natural, bush outlook. An ideal location for a quiet, relaxed escape from the chaos. Find your peace and relax in this crazy world. Private, secluded, peaceful and relaxing - a perfect island hideaway so close to Brisbane.
    Enjoy a cool drink on the balcony listening to the choir of cicadas while the kookaburras, cockatoos and butcher birds play around in the nearby gum trees. This is our island hideaway - a place we escape to. We are landscape photographers and spend the bulk of our time sailing the Queensland coast gathering new imagery for our libraries. Your stay with us will be a little like staying in our own private gallery, and we're sure you'll like it. We've also made a small foldaway cot available for the little nippers, along with a double, inflatable bed for your guests. Comes complete with internet, Netflix, room to move and stay safe.

    Russell Island, QLD, Australia

    Ideally facing NE on Moreton Bay, this spacious, self-contained studio has high ceilings, marble floors, fully equipped kitchen, sea and island views with cooling summer breezes. Relax, walk, play golf, fish or use as a base and with separate entry you can come & go. The bayside walking path leads to the golf club (400 m) or pub, village shops & ferry (1 - 1.5 km). It's only 40 mins by car from the City, Airport, Gold Coast and hinterland rainforests. A discount applies for multiple nights.
    The studio apartment is an independent part of our home and is the only living area on the ground floor. It is modern and tastefully furnished. It can be open to enjoy the views and bay breezes or snug and private with the block-out curtains closed. The granite patio is yours to enjoy with an adjustable shade awning, manicured garden and those views of the bay as the tide goes in and out. The apartment is more spacious and light than the photos indicate as I've been told by many guests. It has high ceilings, marble floors and bathroom, high quality fixtures, curtains and paintings. It has a fully equipped kitchenette with convection- grill microwave & toasted sandwich press. There’s also a free electric barbecue down by the water in front. The bathroom is equipped with shampoo, conditioner and soaps as well as towels. There are beach towels for taking out on trips to Coochie or Straddie. The sofa faces the TV and DVD, as well as the view, with surround sound and some DVDs are provided for your use. We have a few more upstairs. There are also books about the area and an assortment of novels. The bed is Queen sized with cotton sheets, a quilt and cotton blanket and an assortment of pillows to suit everyone. The floors are natural marble which is absorbent and easily etched by acids such as fruit juice and scratched by sand and any hard surface. We'd ask that you please wipe your shoes well on the front mat and avoid bringing in sand and dragging or rolling cases or furniture on the floor. There is a security screen on the sliding glass door beside the bed that can be left open except when wind & rain are expected. The louvres near the kitchenette and the ones in the bathroom are also security screened and can be left open for flow through ventilation at all times. The ceiling fan provides extra air movement when it's hot or the air conditioner can be used of a day time. At night the air conditioner compressor unit is a bit noisy up in our living area and for the neighbours, so unless it's a very hot night, so we'd ask you to use it sparingly (see Rules). There’s a folding arm awning over the patio area for adjustable shade in summer. The granite patio has table and chairs to enjoy breakfast, read a book or just the enjoy the view and breezes. The manicured lawn and gardens enhance the experience. Parking is over the road, in the driveway or in the garage by arrangement. We can be accessed for assistance via the intercom in the apartment or at our front door round the side of the house. We live above and will endeavour to keep our noise to a minimum for your comfort and give you as much privacy as we can.
    Our neighbourhood is safe, friendly and everything convenient is close, but out of sight & hearing! We are 40 minutes by road from the airport, Brisbane City and the Gold Coast in what was a farming village. I include a things to do page in your information pack: Across the bay is Queensland's best and most little known gem(other than to locals):- North Stradbroke Island, where you can get close and see dolphins, turtles, manta rays, other marine and land wildlife such as koalas, wallabies and goannas every day and even whales in season. Closer in on the bay is Coochiemudlo Island where there's a safe sandy swimming beach and you can hire a kayak or paddleboat on the weekends or school holidays. There are also the Southern Moreton Bay islands to explore. All of the islands are reached by passenger and vehicle ferries from Redland Bay, Victoria Point or Cleveland. You will have an information page on things to do on the reverse of your welcome and I've included maps, ferry timetables and other information in the folder.

    Joseph2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Huge house with amazing views. Only 5-10min drive from ferry and taxi is super quick. It was amazing to sit on the balcony and look into the ocean. Beds were really comfy too. Had a few dramas at the beginning with power and hot water but I find this a positive because George was super responsive and guided us through fixing it up. (just a gas bottle change over in the end) Definitely would recommend this place for a nice quiet getaway!

    Great long weekend family retreat on Macleay Island. Hardwood floors, powerful AC, luxurious imported sheets in parents room (Queen bed). The ultimate fishing/crabbing/jet skiing spot. Stunning views complete with jetty, heated pool, outdoor shower, fire-pit and mature fruit trees. Steps from the golf course. Our glorious Southern Moreton Bay Island is the perfect place to relax-the marina is just a 45min drive from Brisbane or the Gold Coast! visit us @cottontreeislandhouse on Facebook & Insta

The family suite is on the pool level. Therefore, if you plan to spend lots of time sitting on the porch or sitting by the pool, you will prefer this unit. The romantic guest unit is separate, and accessed by a side staircase. It is set high above the backyard, overlooking the fire pit and the jetty. The pool and jetty are shared between these units, when they are both rented. The romantic suite is truly gorgeous. If you appreciate lovely antique furniture and are looking for a quiet and sophisticated getaway, then the romantic suite is the perfect choice. Both units have a brand new small refrigerator, a toaster, a kettle and tea/coffee/sugar/salt/pepper/cutlery/plates/serving dishes/tea towels etc. The family suite also has a microwave. The BBQ is large, with a grill and flat plate - gas. Neither unit has a “real kitchen.” If you plan to dine out while you are on the island, I suggest making a dinner reservation. I recommend the Golf and Bowls Clubs, Pub and Blue Parrot all serve surprisingly good and fresh food. Both pizza and bakery offer free deliver. (No salad, just pizza & garlic bread). FYI No TV - lots of peace, water and birds. No WiFi - however great phone reception from Vodafone, Optus, and Telstra. No problem using your phone to hotspot for internet, Netflix, etc. The top floor of the home is not for rent. However, it is also not occupied, so the home is private and quiet.
    The property is on MacLeay Island. On the water, across from the golf club. 50 meters from 9 hole golf course. Wonderful family weekend away with golf, fishing, swimming, nature. FREE shuttle bus services to and from - Pub Paradise - Bay Island Golf Club. (Family Friendly enviroment) - Macleay Bowls Club. (Family Friendly enviroment) Property is 150 meters from "water side" Coroboree Parkland, with large grass area to kick a footy, play criket, throw a frisbee, etc. Playground with swings for the young ones. BBQ facilities for lunch sausage sizzle incase the kids dont want to leave . Good spot for a fish at high tide.

  • A great spot on the water with a pool & access to a jetty. Keri was great to deal with, very responsive with enquiries and very helpful in arranging anything we needed coming from Toowoomba. We enjoyed our stay, thanks so much & look forward to staying again.

  • Macleay Island was a great place to visit and the accommodation was excellent. Will definitely come back!

  • Although the area we stayed at was clean, we were disappointed with how small it was. We expected a kitchen. The entrance was awkward to negotiate especially with your hands full as we half to go through a pool gate which opened inwards and the screen door opened outwards. We didn't expect to share the property with other people. Correspondence was very good and the cleanliness excellent

  • Had a lovely time.

    Sam2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • A short drive/ferry from Brisbane, quiet and relaxing like beach holidays of your childhood. The apartment had a small kitchenette, a lovely daybed in the lounge and an outlook towards Lamb Island. Down the hill is Corroboree park, everything else a short drive away.

    You'll never leave the deck of this relaxing waterfront house on the bay. Kick off your shoes: stare at the view, or watch the kids in the water for an old-style family holiday. Chill out in a renovated Queenslander with high ceilings, attractive furnishings, 2 nice new bathrooms and a new kitchen. The waterfront at the bottom of yard opens onto a private sandy cove the house shares with its neighbours. Swim when the tide is in; gather shells when the tide is out. Pedestal fans in every room.
    The house is a transplanted Queenslander, originally from the D'Aguilar Ranges, that was taken across Moreton Bay by barge and given a new home near the north-west tip of Macleay Island. The street is the nicest on the island. And the house sits on a semi-secluded cove within Moreton Bay-- which it shares with just a handful of neighbours -- that is great for swimming and for collecting shells. The new kitchen is a large simple galley with an upright gas cooker, microwave, toaster, coffee plunger and all the basics. The two bathrooms are brand new with luxe fittings. There are four bedrooms -- each with a double bed, clean sheets, pillows, and a doona. The bedroom off the back deck looks straight out into our private cove and onto Moreton Bay. The deck itself has a lounge setting and a dining table -- and a fantastic view west across the water to Coochiemudlo Island and to Victoria Point. Great Sunsets! The house has an amazingly relaxing vibe. To be frank, once you are there it is almost impossible to do anything -- I spend a lot time just chilling. There is family-sized dining-room off the kitchen that also looks to the bay. The lounge has a TV and a DVD player (and a few dozen DVDs) and a very comfy sofa . There is no internet i am afraid -- but the street has decent Telstra and Optus reception if you need it. There are pedestal fans in every bedroom on the deck and in the lounge room -- but the easiest thing to do is just open all the windows. Downstairs there is a path down to the water and also an outdoor cold water shower to wash your feet after swimming Two hundred metres north there is another swimming area and a children's playground and BBQ at Pat's Point Park (this is a fenced swimming area) -- while eight hundred metres south there is a boat ramp and swimming areas at Dalpura beach --which is a really sweet little beach. You are about a 2km drive away from the waterfront bowls club -- which has the best restaurant/bar to sit and look at the water. A further 1 km south of the house is a fish and chip shop and a coffee shop. 5km (ten minutes) away at the southern end of the island there are two small supermarkets, a pizza joint, a coffee shop, a bakery, pharmacy, a pub (for supplies) and various other joints.
    Coondooroopa Drive is probably the fanciest bit of the island. The houses are lovely. There are a lot birds about -- including two stone curlews who live in the front yard of the house. There is a park and a beach (and a protected swimming area) at the top of street, and a beach 800m away at the southern end of the street. It is a quiet area. People walk by (street-side) in the morning but there isn't much car traffic. It is important to understand that this isn't Surfers Paradise or even Point Lookout at Straddie. It is a bay environment: you are more likely to see dugongs and sail boats than surf beaches.
  • Nice quiet area on Macleay great place to chill out

    Mick2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! A beautiful place to kick back and enjoy a holiday. Great house, great swimming, fantastic verandah and seafood from Pete's was amazing.

    Cate2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to unwind and be in the present. Views amazing, was great area for the kiddlets to go exploring

    Laura2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful old Queenslander the veranda is fully netted so you can relax without worrying about bugs at night. The beach was a 3 minute walk away. It was so peaceful and relaxing.

    Faith2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended for a super relaxed stay. Great deck area for relaxing out of the way of mosquitos. Beach (mangroves) accessible right from the back yard. We hope to return to Stuart's place in the future.

    Natalie2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely old Queenslander, that easily fits 8 people with beautiful old furniture. Quality bed linen. Great place to go when you just need a quiet spot away from the city. Our family of 6 had some quality time together here. Thank you!

    Miriam2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication and amazing views.

    Melinda2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • My second stay at this beautiful and huge Queenslander with all the modern amenities. The location is great also, very quiet and the sunsets from the rear verandah over the Mainland and the Moreton Bay are prodigious! Stuart is a no worries host who makes everything simple and easy. Thanks for all!
