About our home

Our modern and spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment in Nelly Bay is the perfect base for your visit to Magnetic Island, a 20 minute fast cat ferry ride from Townsville, with its International Airport, and a few minutes walk from the Ferry Terminal once you arrive on Maggie. There is also a car ferry which takes around 45 minutes to reach the Island.

The main bedroom has a king size bed and we wake up in the morning to fabulous sea views across Nelly Bay, sipping our coffee and watching the comings and goings into the harbour. There is a large ensuite bathroom with sea views from the shower and separate bath. The large second bedroom has a queen size bed. There is a second bathroom/toilet which also has the 'European' laundry.

We have a well equipped kitchen to cook up a storm, or use the BBQ on the balcony. Dining inside or out, the choice is yours. The lounge/diner/kitchen are open plan with sliding doors opening onto the balcony. TV/DVD, cable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fans in lounge and main bedroom.

The apartment is in a gated resort and we have a choice of 4 pools to take a cooling dip in, relax in the spa or workout in the gym. There's heaps to do on Maggie....boating/jetskiing/hire a moke or scooter/fishing/hiking/snorkelling/diving/horse riding/koala spotting/9 hole golf course....or just relax and recharge the batteries!

There are four main 'villages' on the Island, Nelly Bay, Picnic Bay, Arcadia and Horseshoe Bay. We are within walking distance to Picnic Bay and Arcadia. It's easy to get around the Island by bus, grab a day pass and visit all the main areas. Alternatively hire a little topless car to buzz around in. There is a grocery store 5 minutes walk from the apartment to get your supplies.

Our ideal locations to swap are in the UK and South Africa. We can either swap (non-simultaneous is OK) or work with the points system.
