Forrest Beach Getaway - family holiday haven

Holiday home in Forrest Beach with kitchen and balcony
This holiday home has 5 large bedrooms - 3 upstairs and 2 downstairs: 2 bathrooms - 1 up and 1 down: large living room and kitchen and laundry with washing machine and dryer. The house is fully air-conditioned with fans as well or just enjoy the beautiful sea breezes through the fly-screened windows. Plenty of parking space and a large yard for the children to enjoy. The house is approximately 500 meters from the beach front. The home is suitable for a large family or a group of families wanting to enjoy the beautiful beaches, great fishing and closeness to the Fantome, Pelorus, Palm and Orpheus Islands just off the coast. There are 2 boat ramps from which to launch the boat to explore the great fishing opportunities or to cruise across to the islands and snorkel or dive the reefs surrounding the islands in beautiful clear waters or stop off at Yanks Jetty on Orpheus Island for a picnic and swim around viewing the fish and coral that live under the jetty. The house is approximately 20-25 minutes from Dungeness where there is great launching facilities and parking space. Launching at Dungeness gives you access to the Hinchinbrook Channel or the outer reefs for great fishing or visit Zoe Falls on Hinchinbrook Island and enjoy a cooling swim in the beautiful pool at the bottom of the falls after tracking through tropical rain forest. If this isn't enough, you can enjoy long walks along the soft white sandy beach collecting shells and trinkets. Forrest Beach has a stinger net which is in position during the summer months and patrolled by Surf Lifesavers on weekends and during school holiday periods. There is a mini-mart, take-away food shop, hair-dresser, doctor and chemist, newsagency and hotel with a bottle shop. The hotel, which is on the beachfront, has an a-la-carte restaurant and is great spot to sit and enjoy a drink with family and friends with a cool breeze blowing or inside the air-conditioned bar.

5/5 Excellent

Forrest Beach, North Qld
Beautifully appointed home, clean and comfortable, close to all the amenities and the owners are very welcoming and helpful. Would highly recommend this property and would happily stay again.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely spot, house and town
Thank you for our last minute stay to avoid Townsville's lockdown. Your communication was great and everything was easy to find, the house was nice and spacious. Thank you.

5/5 Excellent

Spacious, comfortable, well equipped home!
We stayed a night at the property for a family wedding. The home is very large and well appointed and could cater for two smaller families or one large family. The house was very clean and tidy and in a great location. Some suggestions we have are perhaps the availability of a baby gate or two for use at the top and bottom of the internal stairs, and the main entrance/front door just has a single round knob with push lock, therefore is easy for small kids to open and get out, so perhaps a lockable deadlock or turn lock would be helpful. Otherwise was a lovely stay and we will be keeping the place in mind for future use for ourselves and other family/friends.

5/5 Excellent

Always a pleasure to stay here
Looking forward to coming back
