This 1920's vintage Queenslander has had a colourful past. To the best of our knowledge, it started as a convalescent home for soldiers. In later years, it was a boarding house, a retirement home and a house of "ill repute". In the 1960's it was split into 6 apartments and became a popular holiday-maker haven. We acquired the building in 2012 and updated kitchens and bathrooms leaving the rest as original as possible. Guests are continually charmed by this quirky and unique old building.
Guests have access to kayaks with life vests. The beach is a short walk across the road. Beach is lovely, waters are generally calm and views are great. There is a shady 14km bike path running along the waterfront. This is a popular walking area for both visitors and locals to enjoy the views on the way to the iconic Urangan Pier. There are free gym stations along the path for public use.
In the front garden, there is a shared outdoor shower on the street side of the staircase and another at the back of the building. There is a public cold water shower across the road and a free covered BBQ area with public bathrooms. There are picnic benches there with Fraser Island views. Sunsets in the winter are spectacular from here.
Our guests receive a discount on tours with several Whale Watch Companies from late July to late October, on visits to Lady Elliot Island and with Fraser Explorer Tours.
