The SpaceWe have a self contained flat (downstairs apartment in our house) in beautiful Picnic Bay on Magnetic Island. You'll have your own toilet and shower and a well set-up kitchenette equipped with a fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle and a couple of hotplates. There's also a stainless steel electric frypan. You'll also have your own TV and we'll provide tea and coffee makings. There's a ceiling fan and a pedestal fan in case you need it on warm days. And we recently put in an air conditioner that can be used as well. There's a private entrance to your flat, and we'll give you a key to your door. So it really is like your own place. We have a washing machine and a clothes line that you are welcome to use. The flat is a bit 70s in style...we must get that disco ball to finish it off! We have lived on the Island for more than 20 years* so can give excellent advice on the best places to go and where to see a koala. Please make contact with us by telling us a bit about yourself/selves before booking the space. (*We've lived in our present house since late 2012. We are gradually developing a permaculture garden which means, among other things, that our garden and grounds can look a bit like a farm at times. It's not a very manicured look as we are setting about long term sustainability with veges and fruit trees and constantly building our soil with mulching. You might also notice that we are renovating the house so don't be surprised to see some building materials about the yard.) Interaction with GuestsWe've travelled extensively using Airbnb - so we know what travellers are looking for - a good clean secure space with hosts that are friendly and helpful while not being obtrusive. The NeighborhoodWe are a 3 minute walk to glorious Picnic Bay Beach - a really nice swimming beach. In summer the local council puts up a stinger-free enclosure. The bus stop is on the way to the beach. The bus will take you all over the Island including, Nelly Bay, Arcadia and Horseshoe Bay. The Picnic Bay Pub is just near the bus-stop and the beach (less than 5mins walk down the hill). The Pub is quite often a music venue on the weekends. There's the RnR restaurant which serves better than your average pub food and is open just about everyday for lunch and dinner. There's also Alby's Chinese restaurant and The Picnic Bay Seafood Cafe (great for having take away fish 'n' chips at sunset on the beach). There's the fascinating Magnetic Island History and Craft Centre plus a beautiful 9 hole golf course - all about a 5 minute walk away. The Picnic Bay jetty is an Island landmark and is beaut for an evening stroll or maybe to wet a fishing line. It's less than 5 minutes walk away too. If dance parties are more your thing, X-Base is about a 15-20 minute walk, with spectacular headland views along the way. If you are coming home late at night be sure to take a torch for the bush track. X-Base hold the famous full-moon parties each month. There are some lovely walks you can take that begin close-by including Sails Rock, Rocky Bay, Cockle Bay and West Point. You can also visit the Ranger's Office to learn about the Island's National Park which covers 70% of the land mass. Getting AroundWe live less than a 5 minute stroll to the bus stop. Sunbuses run pretty regularly and will take you to all the populated bays. There's usually a timetable in the flat. Tickets are inexpensive and to find out more go to the Sunbus Townsville website. Cars, bicycles and scooters can all be hired on the Island. The ferry and barge terminal is in Nelly Bay. Buses meet almost every ferry. The walk from Picnic Bay to the heart of Nelly Bay is about 35 minutes. It's a picturesque walk best done in the morning or late in the arvo. Sometimes we can give you a lift over the hill too. Other Things to NotePicnic Bay is a great swimming bay. We often swim twice a day in the summer - in the morning and late afternoon or evening. If you are lucky to be here when there's a full moon, it's just amazing to watch the moon rise while floating in the water!

The SpaceOur beach house is still open to visitors even though our warmer months approach. We had >800mL of rain in March which filled our tanks but made the road impassable for a few days. It has been mostly clear and sunny since. Between April and September is the best time to visit our little piece of paradise for people in southern hemisphere who are looking to escape their cold winters, however our spring and summer times are perfect for travellers from northern hemisphere who are looking to escape to a warm tropical island. We can offer a budget priced experience in a peaceful slice of paradise. The upper deck is 8x8 square metres and is fully screened with 360 degree views of bush behind and beach at the front. It is a quiet eco-friendly retreat but is not wheel chair accessible as there are 13 steps to reach this spacious living area. There is a lounge and dining area adjacent to the sleeping space with a couple of hammocks ready if you feel that way inclined. There is a desk with a magnificent view and a games table with a variety of card and board games for you to use including one that we developed called "Going Troppo!!"

We might be able to give you a lift if you don't have transport. Other Things to NoteIn the cooler months you will need warm clothing in the evening and although the house is fully screened you may need insect repellent around dusk. A fan is available if needed but we do NOT have air conditioners. When guests reach the T junction at West Point, it is best to take the right hand fork and follow the track to the end. Follow the GREEN arrows which will lead you into our back yard. Do not take the road to the left as the track is soft sand where hire cars are not permitted.

            [ This Description left by a friend that has "lived" at west point for 6 months, is better than any I could come up with :) Thanks Dan. ] Paco's hut has been a delight to be in for our extended stay! The house is clean and comfortable with spacious rooms and large louvered windows to let the ocean breeze blow through. Laying in bed at night with the surf just a few meters away and the lights of Townsville across the bay is very peaceful. Paco , and his parents made us very welcome and did all they could to ensure a great stay, made us feel as friends rather than renters. A car is a good idea to access Paco's as it is 4 miles [ actually it is closer to five and that is 8 Kilometers in metric ] from town on a dirt road, but I had no problem catching rides from very friendly people coming out to do the excellent fishing and watch the beautiful sunsets. A very quiet place, very little cars after sunset, no streetlights, just loads of stars, and most of the neighbors are weekenders, not very many people around. The solar power for us was adequate, just had to go with the suns flow, and Paco has a gas [ petrol that is for us Ozzies ] generator backup that was easy to operate. Water catchement cisterns [ water tanks ] and shower worked good. Our first night had cute possums and Wallaby's on the deck and in the morning had many white Cockatoos and pretty Lorakeets join us for breakfast on the deck. Koala bears are also regular visitors in the eucalyptus trees outside the bedroom windows. (very cute but, warning, they can be noisy at night, along with the curlews...) I loved it so much there I didn't want to leave! The only thing that should be considered is that it IS the tropics in far NE Australia so there can be insects and other local species that share the island with you, the winter, spring and fall months are probably the best time to avoid this. I'll take the summer months Paco! :) I would and will be delighted to enjoy Paco's Hut and hospitality again. Isolated Part of the island with views back to Townsville , great for sunsets over the water and Fishing, boating, Nature spotting, walking on the beach. Best accessed by car or Boat.

Although in the Tropics, the Townsville area is in a rain shadow which makes it the sunniest city on the Queensland coast (Magnetic Island averages over 320 days of sunshine per year). Just twenty minutes by fast "Cat" across Cleveland Bay from Townsville and you could be in what many consider Paradise ! More than half of the Island's 5,184 hectares is National Park, with Mt.Cook in the centre rising to 497 metres. Huge granite boulders are softened by tall Hoop pines, eucalypt forest and small patches of rainforest. Where the rocky headlands meet the sea many secluded beaches have been formed, some may only be reached on foot or by boat. There are 24 kms. of walking track through the park with many spectacular lookouts. The National Park is a haven for wildlife, like rock wallabies, possums, koalas and a wide variety of bird-life. Not only is there an excellent passenger ferry service, with up to 14 return trips daily, but also a passenger & vehicular ferry (up to 7 return trips daily). The range of activities available on the Island is both wide and varied. Whether young or old, seeking active pursuits or relaxation, there is a selection for everyone. To really see the Island you need to stay a few days at the very least, laze under a coconut palm on the warm golden sand and relax - then plunge into cool, clear, blue water. If you come only for a day, then you will probably be planning your next holiday here.

Only one-house back from the beach, but with easy and direct beach access (70 m to the sand) via an easement. Very private location, immersed within sounds of wildlife and ocean waves. Also central - short walk to ferry, shops, bus. Guest AccessExclusive use of the cabin with private bathroom, bar fridge, and tea/coffee making facilities. Cabin opens onto a deck that is shared with one other cabin ('The Bush Hut'). Cabin has one queen-size bed, plus access to another bed if needed, in a loft above the bathroom which is accessed via a ladder. Interaction with GuestsOwners live in adjacent house and are available to answer questions throughout your stay. When you first arrive - we will do our best to pick you up and give you a good orientation to the island. We are also happy to lend you our snorkelling equipment, boogie boards, canoe etc The NeighborhoodWhile close to the bustle of Nelly Bay (shops, doctor, restaurants, etc), our neighbourhood is uniquely isolated from it, in a quiet leafy beach-side nook in which property owners have prioritised wildlife over tourism development. Getting AroundThe property is only 15 minutes walk from the Ferry, and 200 metres walk to the nearest bus stop. Shops, doctor, pharmacy, bottle shop, restaurants are all within 5 mins walk. A great nearby restaurant is Man Friday, a Mexican theme but they do other types of meals. We love the alfresco dining and the friendly owners. Stagger distance from your place is about 400 metres. Other Things to NoteOur property is part of the 'Land for Wildlife' program, and we value it's position adjacent to a habitat reserve. Please come prepared to enjoy falling asleep to the sounds of curlews wailing, echidnas ploughing, and possums squabbling, and waking each morning to an incredible dawn chorus! Practical stuff; In the hut you will have some cooking facilities these include a microwave, bar b que, toaster, kettle and a fridge. The huts have a loft where we can put either a double or single mattress. This area is accessed via a near vertical ladder, it is a bit of a cubby house. There are actually two huts on site joined by a deck. You can book both if you like.
