The space

Apjohn House is your island home away from home. A relaxed and tranquil environment where guests only needs to decide which hammock to snooze in and how long to spend in the lagoon pool. The house has a fully equipped gourmet cooks kitchen - complete with all pantry essentials, filtered drinking water and a coffee machine. Outside boasts a lagoon pool and relaxing undercover entertaining area with BBQ cooking facilities - all set amongst palm fringed gardens with the scent of frangipani in the air. Our chickens Nelly, Gertie and Flo will provide you with fresh eggs throughout your stay (NB: the chooks live on our property we provide a egg drop off box for you, we're also happy to take your food scraps for them). All you need to do is sit back and relax and immerse yourself into life on Magnetic Island.

Our stay at Apjohn House was wonderful. Quiet and relaxing but close enough to the beach and shops as well as the bus. The house is very comfortable and Julie provides everything needed for a great holiday. She is a font of information and so accommodating. We will be back.

A lovely relaxed atmosphere with a friendly and informative host. The house had everything you could ever need and the outdoor bathroom was a real hit. Loved it, will be back again.

We loved Apjohn House and Julie is a truly wonderful host. The accommodation is comfortable and homey but with luxurious touches (eg. Linens and coffee machine). It's an easy walk to horseshoe bay- gorgeous beach and excellent cafes/restaurants. This is seriously THE place to stay on magnetic island. Really cannot wait to come back!!

Julie, is possibly by some measure the best Airbnb host in the known universe. The fact she hosts on magical Magnetic Island, and in the gorgeous AP John House, is just a match made in heaven. Minutes after booking she called me to find out about what time we would be arriving, what wine we'd like in the fridge, letting me know that there is whales in every bay, koalas in the trees, rock wallaby's ready to be patted and fed, and that quite simply we'd be in for a ridiculously amazing time. We were coming to Maggie (as its known) to do a Swimwear campaign shoot, and Julie, was like our production manager, the perfect kind, anticipating every need, to levels we couldn't have even dreamt. The house is 50 million times more gorgeous and spacious, that the pictures suggest, the beds are SUPER comfy, the sheets - 5 star hotel quality, pillows plump and dreamy, lush towels, really lovely bathroom products, fresh home grown pineapple in the fridge! The rest of the house is relaxed and comfortable, fans everywhere, lovely airflow, and flow through of the floor plan means you just sink into relaxation as soon as you arrive. Its honestly like your own private hideaway resort, without the other annoying guests - and a host so brilliant, so full of local knowledge, and a deep love for Magnetic Island, you can't help but love it yourself. Don't look at any other property - this place is simply THE BEST. And Julie is hands down the best host on Airbnb.

From the moment we arrived, we felt privileged to be a part of Magnetic Island's pineapple dynasty, some long lost but treasured cousins who had found their way home. Apjohn House is a beautifully appointed colonial retreat, with everything from top-quality toiletries and snorkel gear, to sombreros, to an array of spices, movies, music and books at your finger tips. We will be back soon, and are happy to have found a new favourite holiday destination, complete with whales and koalas. Thanks Julie and Clayton :)

I almost don't want to post this review because I want to keep apjohn house all for myself. Let's just say - we started planning our next trip to apjohn house during our first day on magnetic island. Julie's hospitality is incomparable, the house is great and the location is a great balance of quiet/private yet still close to the main drag and beach. Stop looking at other houses - stay here. You're welcome!

Apjohn House is perfect in every way! ! It is beautifully decorated, has every possible convenience including a lovely private setting with a pool and walking distance to charming Horseshoe Bay. Julie was truly the best host ever. Magnetic Island has so much to offer --an array of magnificent beaches for swimming and snorkeling, koala bears, kangaroos, and rock wallabies in the wild, humpback whales in the nearby waters, and some excellent restaurants. I would highly recommend it!
