The SpaceFrom the moment you arrive, you feel an immediate sense of relaxation. A sparkling pool, bali hut with hammock, picnic table and wood BBQ. The front yard is shaded by huge Pandanus trees providing the perfect spot for kids and pets to play while you relax on the deck. On the upper level, there is an open plan chefs kitchen/lounge/dining with a side balcony overlooking the pool, a great place for reading the morning paper and catching the morning sun or perfect for watching the sun set. Another deck opens off the lounge and kitchen which has a day bed, family size Weber Q and a large 10 seater table. Our beautiful home has two queen beds, two singles, a double sofa and two single rollaway beds for smaller children to be on the same level as mum and dad upstairs. Take your pick of numerous outdoor entertaining areas to relax. The two local beaches are only a minutes stroll away, Fingal Beach which is patrolled (during the summer) with beautiful white sands provides great swimming and surfing and the wonderful Dreamtime Beach is perfect for walks with your furry friend. The beautiful Tweed River is also a short stroll away. Close enough to Coolangatta Airport (12km), Gold Coast themes parks and world famous surfing destinations. Guest AccessSole use of entire house. Interaction with GuestsWe are located in Brisbane. If you are in Brisbane, we will happily deliver the keys to you prior to your stay or we can make arrangements for you to collect them from a local real estate agent in Kingscliff. During your stay, we are only a phone call/AirBnB message away or our local agent will happily assist with anything you need if you prefer. The NeighborhoodFingal Head is our piece of paradise. We fell in love with the area and bought our beautiful beach house and named it "Sandcastles". There are no high rises. No chain stores. No McDonalds. There is a lovely little cafe/art gallery and a well stocked corner store that doubles as a post office. For all your shopping needs, Kingscliff is only five minutes drive away and has a large Woolworths, bottleshop, chemist, doctors and restaurants galore. Getting AroundThere are public buses which run from the area but to explore the beautiful region, you really do need a car. Other Things to NoteWe are happy to share our fishing rods, bikes, kayak and surf ski with our guests. We also have a selection of board games, books and DVDs for you to enjoy.
At this stage, we are unable to provide internet. There are no more ports available in Fingal but the NBN is coming - we are hoping to connect with NBN soon. In the meantime, if you need internet, we suggest you connect via your phone hotspot.
We generally ask that you bring your own linen (sheets, pillowcases, towels, tea towels) or if you prefer, we can arrange for these to be hired for a small additional fee through a local linen hire company. For stays of two weeks or more, we are happy to include all linen free of charge. We can also arrange hire of porta cots, high chairs or anything else you require, please just ask.
We are happy to offer discounts for bookings of two weeks or more, last minute bookings or mid-week only stays.
So that we can keep Sandcastles available as a holiday house for our regular guests, we are unable to offer long term leases.
