About the property

Spectacular views, waterfront home; 3br, open-plan lounge, kitchen, dinin


Looking for Macleay Island Accommodation? This holiday home was architecturally designed to capture the magnificent water views across Moreton Bay, to the mainland and hinterland beyond. Fourteen metres of floor-to-ceiling glass, slides open and ensures you enjoy spectacular sunsets from the living and dining rooms.. perhaps while sipping a chilled champagne or enjoying a glass of cold beer. Louvre windows and overhead ceiling fans allow for the cooling island breezes to circulate and flow throughout the open-plan home.

Upstairs, the master suite is an open-plan bedroom and ensuite area, encouraging "time out" for adults. The bed faces the waters of Moreton Bay, so why not laze in bed or read the Sunday papers while soaking up the wonderful view. Once again, floor to ceiling glass opens from the bedroom onto your own private deck - have breakfast or coffee there, while your friends or family use the one downstairs.

The second bedroom downstairs has a queen size bed and also enjoys the same spectacular view as the living area.


Large glass doors slide back and open onto the shaded deck - why not borrow one of our many books, lay back and relax on your deck chair, or even settle for an afternoon snooze.

Preparing lunch or dinner has taken on new meaning..... enjoy the expansive view from the kitchen and utilise the new stainless steel appliances. BBQ on the deck, and when the sun sets over the bay, the night lights of Redland Bay sparkle to illuminate the mainland across the water.. quite a spectacular sight.

No loud traffic noises to interrupt your peace and quiet... only kookaburras, rosellas and sea eagles gliding along searching for their evening meal.


For those wanting a little more activity, Macleay Island has a public golf course, a bowls club and some quiet sandy beaches to explore. For the fisherman, throw in a line at a local fishing spot or walk down our timber walkway, to access the waters edge, then throwing in your fishing line without even leaving the property!

Bring your bike from the mainland, and you can ride around the island until you can "peddle-no-more". Alternatively, use the guests mountain bikes and helmets at Sunset Waters.

Why not "Island Hop" - grab your backpack, water bottle, some lunch and jump onto one of the local ferries to explore Lamb, Russell and Karragarra Islands - ferries leave each of the local jetties, on a very regular basis.

Why Deb Wybrow chose Macleay Island

Sunset Waters sits high on an embankment overlooking the sparkling waters of Moreton Bay.

No matter what time of the year you visit ... the changing moods of the bay, will never cease to amaze you. We love the tranquility of the island and it's many simple pleasures.

Imagine ... waking from peaceful slumber, with the sun sparkling on the water.. a new day has dawned... then your morning comes alive with birdsong, sea eagles soar on thermal currents... yachts gently glide past; small motor boats bump and bob in the water.

Linger over breakfast on the deck while planning a round of golf, or to throw in a fishing line. Alternatively why not stretch your legs with a leisurely walk, enjoy island hopping to explore the other Southern Moreton Bay Islands, or a swim at nearby Dalpura Beach.

Fabulous house and breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

Luxury property with all the finishing touches you would expect. Views are breathtaking. Really stunning!! Superb master suite and two further well appointed bedrooms. Scrupulously clean. Friendly neighbours / house keepers and great communication from the owners. Highlight was watching wild dolphins swim in front of the house. Wildlife in general a joy to watch. Only two slight niggles: no dishwasher and two regular 'escapee' dogs from new neighbours (I believe fencing will be sorted). Otherwise it's the perfect property and I highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Hi Caroline, Thanks for your review on Sunset Waters. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and found our holiday home to be superbly appointed, very clean and comfortable for your family of 4. As for the breathtaking views ... yes .. they certainly are beautiful and the thing we love most, is that they constantly change. How fabulous that you saw dolphins swim past .. they don't grace us with their presence often, but they certainly are a lovely sight, when they do. I'm sorry about the two new rascally dogs who ventured into Sunset Waters, yes, fencing is currently being sorted at the neighbours. You have commented on the fact there isn't a dishwasher in our holiday home. Actually, when we deigned and built it, we purposely didn't install a dishwasher, as like to encourage families to all pitch in together and help out after a meal. We feel it allows for happy chit chat around the sink. Honestly, in all the years we've been renting out Sunset Waters, I could only count on one hand, the number of guests who have suggested a dishwasher! However .. your suggestion has been taken on board and I thank you for it. In all, I'm pleased you had a lovely holiday and certainly would love to welcome you back, as you left the house clean and tidy; and we communicated easily in emails. Take care, Deb

What a wonderful, relaxing week we had at Sunset Waters. We island hopped, spent a day discovering Brisbane, read books, watched the Ashes and admired that AMAZING view! Great time had by all.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Macleay Island.

The house is truly beautiful, with an incredible view to match! We enjoyed relaxing by reading, playing some of the board games on offer and watching movies over our week stay. We also frequently visited Dalpura Beach for a bit of a paddle or to read on the beach. We would especially like to thank Deb for all of her wonderful information and help throughout the process of booking our stay.

Definitely recommend if you're looking for somewhere to sit back and relax with beautiful views!

Beautiful house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with friends at Sunset Waters for one week. The house is absolutely beautiful. It has everything you could possibly need and then some. Booking was easy and Deb was always in contact. When we arrived John and Elaine (neighbours) were so lovely and couldn't do enough for us. Thank you Deb, John and Elaine! Two things drove me nuts...midgies and birds. Make sure you spray day and night and before going to bed close all doors and windows otherwise the birds will wake you up.

The Island itself was amazing and a perfect getaway for couples and family.. it is away from all the hustle and bustle and as soon as you step off the ferry, you will feel the change in your mood! In summer don’t forget to visit the ocean pool at the other end of the island! That spot is amazing for a BBQ as well..

SunSet Waters.. This house is so beautiful..the view is something I cannot explain, you need to go and see it! You can enjoy the sunset, see dolphins (we saw three in one day) & many birds while sitting outside of the pergola! The rooms, washrooms, toilets & all living areas were clean and tidy.. have all the utensils needed to cook like from home.. we of course did not cook, as there couple of good restaurants in the town to eat from.. we just relaxed the whole time (we needed it badly, as we are a couple working in Melbourne city)..

Most importantly, from the time of the booking to the day we left Sun Set Waters, the service provided by Deb and Elaine was incredible.. had no issues with anything! They don’t treat you as guests; rather they treat you as family! Deb went above and beyond in making our stay worthwhile.. her advice on getting to Brisbane to heading back to Melbourne, saved us allot of time.

I will definitely visit Sun Set Waters again..
