Boolarong is a contemporary award wining 3 level open plan beach house taking full advantage of expansive views of the Coral Sea to Moreton Island.

The ground level has a laundry, middle level has 3 bedrooms, main with ensuite and a second bathroom, and top level has open plan stylish modern galley kitchen, lounge, and dining opening onto the deck with BBQ.

Featured in book '21st Century Houses Down Under'

The space

Boolarong was featured in Habitus magazine (2011), quoting architect Shane Thompson 'The design also has a timeless appeal,
one that is authentic rather than artificial, and practical enough to easily accommodate all ages'. Spotted Gum timber screens to mid-level and upper level windows are a distinctive feature of the house. Exterior walls are clad in CSR Wunderlich terracotta tiles –referencing the painted fibre cement sheeting of traditional houses and beach shacks.

This home is stunning - even better than the photos. Easy walk to the pub and beach, beautiful outlook, and we were even greeted by a kangaroo on arrival! Kenny the Koala even gave us a performance in the evening. Had breakfast on the balcony while a whale performed in the bay. Great value. Couldn't imagine a better place to stay on Straddie!

A great spot with a balcony that looks out to the ocean and beaches not too far away. The house itself is nicely designed, spacious and comfortable, and Judy is a perfect host! There is a nice restaurant around the corner too, with a good menu and brilliant cocktails. Will definitely look to stay here again if we ever go back to Stradbroke Island!

I enjoyed an amazing long weekend with my parents and girlfriend. The house is one of the most interesting places I've stayed, the upstairs terrace is huge, the views amazing and it is the perfect space for a relaxing dinner and drinks. The location is just about as peaceful as it gets and the two bathrooms are a bonus too. The only advice I'd give is that although very well provisioned in terms of appliances, supplies are basic - exactly as described in the listing - so make sure you bring everything e.g. salt/pepper. As hosts, Judy and Michael couldn't have been more friendly and helpful before, during and after our stay.
