Read what one of our travellers has to say about Magnetic Island!

My beloved and I needed a break, it had been a long couple of months filled with work, stress and cold weather. A quick look on HomeAway and I was pretty certain I had found the perfect tonic for winter blues. A week staying in our own private cottage on magnetic island in tropical North Queensland. The pictures online looked so perfect, I was pretty sure it could not live up to expectations, but would still be nice enough.

We left a cold and rainy Sydney at 12 degrees and stepped off the plane to 24 degrees and clear skies. That in itself would have been enough. When we arrived at our cottage we could not believe our luck, it was so welcoming and comfortable, it really felt like home. On the first afternoon he stretched out on the bed and declared "I have never felt so relaxed so quickly in my life, we should move here!!"

And the more we explored the more we loved it. Stunning beaches surrounded by beautiful and accessible national park. A permanent residential population that gives the island a homey feel that so many tourist locations lack. Curlew birds, geckos, possums, wallabies and frogs all visited our little cottage during the stay. On our last morning my beloved returned from a milk and bread run with a few property pamphlets to look over after breakfast, "just out of curiosity" he declared.

And now 3 months later we have found our selves the proud owners of a vacant block of land on Magnetic Island, our own piece of paradise where we hope to build a home in the future. Who knew that an impulsive look at holiday rentals on HomeAway would leave to our dream home and a new life in paradise!
