"BytheSea" is a holiday cottage, renovated to keep the old world charm of early island life with the addition of modern comforts. Nestled into the base of a private estate on an Island headland and a 3 minute walk from beautiful Picnic Bay Beach, you will be surrounded by amazing granite boulders, eucalypts and paperbarks – a mecca for birds and the island wildlife. This location offers peace & quiet to recharge your batteries.

The space
BytheSea features 2 bedrooms with queen size beds, with air conditioning in the family room and both bedrooms and ceiling fans throughout. Bedroom 2's internal walls are open for the top 60 cm to let the sea breeze through.
The kitchenette is well equipped with kettle, toaster, 2 burner hot plate and air fryer. There is a BBQ near the front deck where you can eat meals and relax. The laundry is just outside this cottage. There is free off street parking for 2 vehicles 10 metres away.

Where you’ll be

Picnic Bay, Queensland, Australia

You may wander up the track to the private sunset deck to enjoy the sun setting over the sea. Within easy walking, Picnic Bay features the historic Picnic Bay Jetty (a fishing mecca), an award winning Italian restaurant (where you can practice your Italian!), a café and Tapas Bar, its own Hotel and bottle shop, walking tracks, local buses (very regular timetable) and swimming all year round. During the summer months, one of the island's 2 stinger nets gives you safe swimming and beach activities.
The local Country club with its 9 hole beautiful golf course, where it is rumoured, the 'Shark' (Greg Norman) first began to play, is a stroll of some 15 minutes from home - & you won't only meet more golfers, but are likely run into wallabies, koalas & a multitude of different bird life; what a wonderful start to the day!

We live on Magnetic Island, off Townsville in North Queensland, Autralia. We love the beach, swimming and boating. We are a casual family when holidaying, enjoying new adventures (usually in the water - seas, lakes, rivers) and then relaxing down time with books. Some of us love to shop as well!
