Acerca de nuestra casa

Our home is on beautiful Magnetic Island, a 15 minute ferry ride from Townsville, Australia's largest northern city, . We are only minutes from beautiful beaches, and the house is surrounded by a leafy tropical garden visited daily by our friendly family of kookaburras!
The house was designed by a Canadian and from the outside resembles a log cabin. However, the wide verandahs and many French doors, mean that the house is geared to tropical "inside-outside" living. You will be able to relax with a drink on the shady verandahs overlooking the pool, or enjoy swimming, diving, fishing, bush walking or just chilling out. For golf enthusiasts, there is a nine hole Golf Course within walking distance. Australia's world famous Great Barrier Reef is a boat trip away.
There is a well equipped kitchen, but also many cafes and eating places nearby for those not wanting to cook!
The Island bus stops at the end of our street and will take you anywhere you want to go. The climate is warm throughout the year, with minimums and maximums of between 20-30 degrees. All bedrooms are air conditioned but you will probably prefer opening doors and windows to the tropical breezes.
Magnetic Island (Maggie) was discovered by Captain Cook, and has since attracted tourists from all over the world, although the atmosphere is not commercial, but friendly and laid-back. People finding Maggie tend to return many times. Or, like us, you give up and live here. A true case of magnetic attraction!

Where is it?


Magnetic Island (Known by locals as "Maggie") is a beautiful tropical island with easy access to the Great Barrier Reef.
It is an easy 20 minute ferry trip from Townsville, unofficial capital of far north Australia. Maggie offers a relaxing holiday suitable for families and those who want a quiet escape, away from more commercial places, although there are plenty of appealing restaurants and pubs for those who want a break from household chores.
The scenery is dazzling and the locals (both human and animal) are friendly and approachable.
