My place is close to the beach, great views, and family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the location, the people, the ambiance, and the outdoors space. My place is good for couples and families (with kids).

The space

This is a purpose built family bach, built in 2006. Comfortable and warm, there is huge deck which can be closed off for little ones to play without getting into trouble. Child gates are also provided at the top and bottom of the internal stairs.

Less than 5 minutes walk to a lovely safe swimming beach with boat ramp. Being situated in the centre of GBI, Okupu is ideal for visiting all the locations the GBI has to offer. Numerous beautiful walks close on hand from easy (take a push chair), to strenuous (need to rest up for a couple of days afterwards).

Cooking is covered by a two burner hobs, small oven and a BBQ. There is no TV but good cell phone coverage for hot spotting. Also a good set of Ipod speakers are provided. All power is 12 volt - lights included and there is an inverter for charging mobiles and computers, etc.

If the stay is for 2 nights only there is surcharge of $20/night.

Guest access

The section is just under 1/2 an acre so there is lots of room to play. Driveway will accommodate a boat and several cars.

Interaction with guests

There is a property manager on hand to assist with any unforeseen events.

Thisis a comfy and convenient place to stay. Close to the beach, quiet, but only a short drive to Claris. The Barrier is a real treat and this is a great place to see it from.

Lovely house just as described, runs off solar power/ generator but we had no problem even with 5 people over a long weekend. Great communication from Jo letting us know about checking in and letting us checkout later as we had a late Avo flight. Highly recommend, The island is beautiful well worth the visit.

The Blue Bayou was accurately described, clean, roomy and comfortable. Perfect for our visit. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home! We had a lovely holiday and hope to come back soon.
