About our home

Our architect designed, island beach house @ Couran Cove, South Stradbroke island, looks out through trees towards the sparkling waters of the Broadwater, towards the hinterland of the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. It is nestled in a quiet niche of the Ramada Couran Cove Island Resort. If you would like to see more about the Ramada Couran Cove Resort see here: http://www.courancove.com.au/.

It is just a short cruise (ferry or water taxi) across the beautiful Broadwater, from the Northern end of the Gold Coast mainland. Our family, visitors and guests have access to all the facilities of the resort - restaurants, spas, swimming pools, tennis courts, basket ball and volley ball courts, mini- golf, fishing, sailing and many other wonderful activities. The restaurants, boutiques and theme parks of the Gold Coast ( e.g Sea World, Dream World, Movie World) are easily accessibly by water taxi &/or ferry. We have the best of both worlds!

Our delightful beach house is a two story villa which is fully air conditioned throughout, with fans in every room. The bedrooms are large and airy - two (one up & one down) with king sized beds; the third bedroom has two large single beds. The marble bathrooms are large (one up & one down) , each with its own separate shower, bath & toilet. The upstairs living area is open planned, including a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge . This, in turn, opens out onto the spacious upstairs deck, where we delight in alfresco entertainment (yes, we have our large BBQ there). Downstairs are the two bedrooms and another spacious bathroom. The downstairs rooms open out onto a spacious, covered deck. Both decks look out through the trees to the sparkling Broadwater.

Our villa provides a perfect holiday home that is suitable for romantic getaways, at the same time it provides a safe, natural environment for families to relax and play. Bicycles are available. And there is the resort "train" to help visitors get over to the Ocean side of the island, with its white sand-dunes for children to roll down, to play hide n' seek & to fly kites.

Two International airports (Brisbane & Gold Coast) are only about an hour and a half away form the ferry terminals. Of course, we do all we can to help to make our guests' visits as carefree and as wonderful an experience as possible (including helping with arrangements for transport to and from the airports).
