You won’t want to leave once you step through the doors of this charming island house. Over the past 20 years of living in this property, we have focused on creating a comfortable, unique, and relaxing atmosphere, and we want our guests to enjoy the place as we did.
Both levels offer a self-contained, spacious, open-plan layout which flows seamlessly onto outdoor decks, allowing for groups of guests to enjoy both privacy as well as communal experiences.
Begin your day with breakfast with the birds on the upstairs deck overlooking Moreton Bay. Our local kookaburras and magpies are always keen for a visit, and keep an eye out for rainbow lorikeets in the winter months!
The house is the perfect spot for doing anything…or for doing nothing at all. Take advantage of the best the island has to offer, and when you come home from exploring, wash off the day’s sand and salt water in a corner bathtub with rain shower head, and relax in the hammock on the deck. When it’s raining, cosy up with one of our eclectic book selections on the daybed or reading lounge in the comfortable living room.
The upstairs kitchen features granite benchtops and stainless steel Smeg and Electrolux appliances. The open plan layout allows the chef to be part of the action, and the kitchen is stocked with all the cookware necessary to whip up a gourmet meal. Snack on lychees plucked off the tree from the upstairs deck, and pick a lemon or lime from the garden to squeeze over your Straddie-caught seafood.
In the evening, retire to the expansive master bedroom with cosy sitting nook, and enjoy stunning views of Moreton Bay. Sleeping options upstairs can be tailored to your requirements, with a queen-sized bed and double futon bed in the air-conditioned master bedroom, a double bed in the smaller second bedroom, and a king single daybed in the living room.
The downstairs apartment is also fully self-contained with its own separate entrance, but can be accessed from inside or outside stairways, so you can choose how much you interact with your fellow guests. Send the kids downstairs to the large lounge area with its own outdoor deck, while you enjoy a spectacular sunset in the bay breezes on the top deck.
Downstairs there are two air-conditioned bedrooms with queen beds, one of which is separated from the main living area by a privacy curtain. The second bedroom features designer French and bi-fold doors. This apartment has its own bathroom and shower, and a full kitchenette for when separate meals are called for.

While the house is thoroughly cleaned between guest visits we would ask that that prior to leaving, you clean and put away any dishes or kitchenware used and put any dirty towels in the hamper. In addition, if you use the BBQ we would appreciate if it was cleaned after use. If you don't have time that is no problem however extra cleaning charges will apply.
We understand that accidents can happen. We do ask that you please let us know when they do. Chances are we can fix them as effortlessly as possible which also means better chances of having your full security deposit returned too.
Pets (maximum two) are welcome to enjoy their holiday with you. We have a fully fenced backyard and they are also welcome to use the downstairs deck area, which is undercover. Please note that pets are not allowed indoors and that pets can only be accommodated with whole house bookings.
I am a marine biologist, and I study marine debris, including impacts to turtles and other wildlife. I love being on the water, whether it be sailing, surfing, or whale watching.
Straddie is an incredible place to live, especially for people who want a relaxed beach vacation, and I look forward to sharing our slice of paradise with our guests. My partner is Straddie born and bred, so let us help you with any of your queries.
