Why Catherine Zanevra chose Shute Harbour
The panorama from The Point Whitsundays will spellbind you - There is really is no other place like it! Perched at the end of a quiet peninsula with views to the harbour. It has with can be considered the best view in the Whitsundays.
What makes this Studio unique
The Point Whitsundays maintain a very private and serene environment for our guests. This fully self contained accommodation is the complete private lower pool deck of a two storey house. Sometimes we, the owners are present upstairs but this has no impact on the privacy and serenity of your space.

Photos don't even do it justice!!!
Unlike real estate photography where the property usually looks more amazing than it actually is, this stunning studio apartment was as divine if not better than what is demonstrated through the photos. We felt as though we could reach out and touch the pool as the open space cascades out with those windows so sparkling clean we initially didn't realise there were glass windows there! Give me the number of your window cleaner, they are welcome at my house any day ;) Owners were so accommodating & helpful and accommodating our baby boy made it a super special end to our honeymoon because I never could have left home without him! Even though we apparently chose the coldest week of the Whitsundays winter & therefore found the pool too cold for swimming, the 3 of us loved every minute of the toasty spa as we relaxed with a quiet drink, cheese & dips watching the boats sail by. The Netflix dropped in and out a bit but to be honest we weren't there for the television so it did not phase me at all. If you're there for the Netflix you're there for the wrong reasons! Herbal teas, coffee, condiments & bath/beach towels to name a few of the welcoming supplies. If you just want to escape the daily grind and pause to watch the world pass you by, this is definitely your place. Turquoise waters, boats and sea birds aplenty. Mindfulness in the purest and most natural form, thanks so much for hosting our new little family :)
Feeling like in paradise
You are at your private lookout, amazing view of several islands and in between emerald waters. The pool will let you enjoy your stay more. You will be in an exceptional and unforgettable place.
Cathi and Ron have thought about everything that you feel at home.
Amazing views, amazing people
Can not fault this beautiful accomodation, amazing hospitality and the best views of the harbour we could have asked for.
Quite, secluded and perfectly situation on a headland with uninterrupted and spectacular views of Shute Harbour and nearby Islands. The accommodation was well appointed with all the creature comforts (e.g. extra blankets, music, movies, espresso machine, pantry items etc) required for a relaxing few days. Cathi and Ron were friendly, generous and respectful hosts and provided enjoyable and much appreciated suggestions for day trips, walks and restaurants. Amazingly, they had rebuilt and reappointed within a Month of Cyclone Debbie, just for us!!! Thank you so much! Much of our time was spent relaxing in the spa watching the stunning sunsets and double rainbows with White Belied Sea Eagles and Brahminy Kites soaring overhead. Will definitely return and cannot recommend highly enough.
Panoramicand peaceful retreat
A perfect place to unwind and enjoy the serenity and beauty of the Whitsundays. Studio is larger than expected with the highlight being the panoramic view, wrap around private deck and infinity pool....and large volume of movies! Booking process was very efficient and responsive and would highly recommend to those who do not need to be in the hub of activity and enjoy self catering, reading and relaxing!
This was such a perfect holiday. Catherine and Ron are very thoughtful hosts, evident in the facilities and little additions throughout the house. They are particularly amazing at retaining the illusion that the place is all yours! Absolute privacy, breathtaking views, your own personal pool & heated spa with a special brand of quiet and serenity you could never achieve being in the big crowded apartments and hotels. We left our nest once in 6 days to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef which was magical. We will be back again next year to experience perfect luxury and a genuine relaxation we've never found anywhere else.
This is the perfect and peaceful place to base yourself while exploring all the treasures that the Whitsunday region has to offer. There are many places to visit and things to do: an abundance of national parks, turtle spotting, sailing, sea kayaking, mountain biking, shopping, swimming in the local waterhole at the base of Cedar Falls, rainforest walks, crocodile safari, and enjoying the many cafes and restaurants. But make sure you take the time to simply stay here, right beside the pool and enjoy being in one of the most spectacular locations on the planet.
The local markets are held every Saturday and Tuesday mornings on the foreshore in Airlie Beach, where you may find handmade crafts, nic nacs, fruit and vegies and wonderful snacks.
