Stradbroke Island: Why a Holiday Rental is a Great Idea
North Stradbroke Island is one of Queensland's secret wonderlands. Located just an hour from Brisbane, it's easily accessible, affordable, and it boasts some of the most spectacular beaches in the state. You'll also discover wetlands and wildlife, shopping and spa treatments, and three friendly and charming towns. There's a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere on Straddie that will ensure you feel right at home as soon as you step off the ferry. If you're planning on visiting, a holiday rental can be a great option. Here are just a few reasons why.
The cost of hotels, motels and even caravans can quickly add up, especially if you're travelling in peak season or looking to stay for a week or two. Our holiday homes range in styles, size and price, so you can choose whatever best suits your needs and your budget. We have accommodation options for families, groups of friends and families. You might choose anything from a small apartment, to a sprawling home with a range of quality facilities. Having your own kitchen also means you can save money by cooking up your own island feasts.
Nowhere feels quite so homely as another home! Straddie is all about relaxation, so a holiday home can help you settle in as soon as you arrive. What's more, you can choose the location and features that best suit your needs. You might select from waterfront, or water-view properties, holiday houses or cottages and there are even pet-friendly accommodation options. We know how hard it can be to leave the family dog at home, so properties that take pooches can be a lifesaver. Select the number of bedrooms to suit, and even the number of bathrooms. If you're looking to enjoy balmy evenings outside, don't forget to check that there's a BBQ!
Holiday homes afford every convenience. With a fully furnished holiday home, you need only arrive with your clothes and camera. You'll find well-equipped kitchens, bedrooms and lounges to ensure every whim is catered for. Going to be having a few nights in? Then check if the property offers satellite television or a DVD player.
You can also select a property that's centrally located to whatever sort of holiday you're planning. Whether you are going to be swimming and surfing or picnicking and walking, then one of our properties at Amity, Flinders Beach or Dunwich will ensure you're just a hop, skip and a jump from your destination.
An Ideal Holiday Choice
Stradbroke Island is a stunning destination with plenty to offer any visitor. The beach is an obvious choice, but it's not the only attraction by far.

And then there are the tour options. If you feel like a 4WD adventure, a sailing trip, or even a painting lesson, you'll be spoilt for choice.
There are three towns on Stradbroke Island, each with unique charms. Make a date to explore the shops, cafes, restaurants and natural attractions at Dunwich, Amity and Port Lookout.
