Ever experienced having your backyard dropping off to one of the best fishing grounds in south-east Queensland? Or the privilege of seeing bottlenose dolphins cavort just metres where you sit watching the stunning sunset from your own private jetty? How about spotting the resident koala’s who sleep in the trees during the day and get a bit more vocal at night, especially during mating season!
These are just three of the daily occurrences that you will be immersed in when you stay at this wonderful hideaway. The bayside village of Amity is a hidden gem on Straddie, with the classic beaches of Point Lookout just 15-minute drive away on a sealed road. Nearby Flinders Beach is accessible only by 4WD and is just 5 minutes from Cooks Hideaway as well as several small, private beaches minutes walk away.
The sleepy seaside Amity village has a general store, a cafe and community club, however, Cooks Hideaway has all the amenities you need for a quiet “off the grid” (your choice!) holiday. FYI, there’s wi-fi if you can’t do without! 🙂 Think some ball sports on the spacious grassy area, the kids fishing or “squidding” from the private jetty, or quiet time with a good book on either the downstairs or upstairs deck – you get the idea.
Rufus King Seafoods (400m away) carries all the best local seafood catch if you are unsuccessful, and there is plenty of parking for your 4WD or even a tinny.
With five queen bedrooms with quality linen supplied, the house is spread over two spacious levels and includes 2 TV’s (one in the main bedroom) and a bench space riddled, European fit-out, kitchen ready to create. The downstairs areas’ high ceilings and white tiled floors create a cool and breezy open plan area with plenty of room to spread out, yet still remain a connection with the family.
Straddie holidays inevitably include plenty of BBQing and Cooks Hideaway is no exception with the large undercover, ground floor deck perfect for a family feast on locally caught seafood – perhaps even your own local catch!
NOTE: Your holiday at Cooks Hideaway includes all beds made, all bathroom linen supplied, guests amenities including soaps, conditioner & kitchen cleaning products. Holidays also include 1x return vehicle ferry for a standard vehicle (4WD included) and a $50 voucher for fish and chips at Point Lookout, perfect for the chefs day off!
