The peace, the tranquility and sheer beauty of this natural jewel is made perfect by several small and perfectly appointed private grass thatched huts - ensuring an environment of luxury and tranquility which wants for nothing. Each hut has a king size bed, air-conditioning, refrigerator, chilled and filtered drinking water.
Set back in a crescent of tropical forest, the Dream House looks east across the bay and beyond to the wings of the distant Double Cone Island. Inside cool limestone floors form steps to a king-size bed where the view is best appreciated. Behind, a beautiful glass-tiled bathroom and a pebble-lined shower that looks through frameless glass into a private bamboo garden.
The heart of the bay area - a beautiful, thatched, high-gabled communal house that commands stunning views of the bay. This is the place where guests gather - on the deep paved verandahs looking seaward, in the dining room, or on deep couches inside - to begin and recall the events of the day. Two hide-away rooms nestle into the ends of the roof.
- Kitchen, bar and pantry
- Living and dining inside and out
- Study with online computer, fax, DVD, VHS, flat screen TV and books
- Outdoor bedroom for afternoon siestas
- BBQ and spit
Two bedrooms are separated by a galley kitchen that opens onto the lawns bordering the bay. Niches, aquatic fossils and the warm patterned glow of lamps. In one room a golden ladder made from baby ironbark trunks leads to a magical playloft. The master bedroom with king-size bed, ensuite and walk-in robe catches every sublime breeze from windows facing north and east.
Adjoining is a bathroom pavilion tiled with white river pebbles...an outdoor bath set in a tropical garden and a shower room for two.
Swing in the verandah hammock, or recline side by side in the nearby bathhouse screened by a palm forest, and look out on the bay. Aqua blue walls inside reflect the colour of the Whitsunday water. Filled with symbols of the sea like the beautiful antique bamboo rod on the wall, this is a Fisherman's hut deluxe.
Two huts joined by a wide raised deck... draped with tropical vines... looking over the lawns and gardens to the bay. Inside silk and suede and lace and tales from distant lands. Perfect for a family or two couples.
Over a bridge in a glade by the beach, the honeymoon hut is close by yet secluded. A Timber walkway leads to a Bathhouse that hugs the trunk of a silver gumtree. Two baths side by side, shower and vanity that look into the forest. Walk across the front lawn to the sand and sea.
