Bright Point Double Absolute
Our appartment is the pick of this complex. If you wanted to be any closer to the ocean you'll have to be on a boat. It is located on the very private harbour entrance front corner with two verandas, a private yard where the Rock Wallabies come to feed and the only unit with direct access to the harbour side walkway. The complex has 4 spectacular pools and is only a two minute walk to the Island ferries, bus service, supermarket and nearest restaurant. You'll absolutely love Magnetic Island.
