Take a day out Beach Driving

At low tide take advantage of beach driving Rainbow Beach, check out the beautiful coloured sands, and at the point enjoy the nature made lake one side or surf the other for a different day out. From here you can take the Leisha track to the other side of Double Island Point, heading south. Not far south from here, your can take the Freshwater 4WD Track which brings you out 5kms out of Rainbow Beach on the main road in. The freshwater track is an alternative when the tides don't suit or are too high at Rainbow Beach, or simply to spend the day at the point, and travel home on the Freshwater track. Be certain to check with locals the state of the track as sometimes it can have deep sand. Otherwise, a great alternative to the beach, a nice scenic rainforest track.


Rainbow Beach is a relaxing small township, where you can wind down very quickly. Take a good book, and alternate between the beach and the private back yard on a sunlounger with a bush outlook.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the comfort of home away from home, an easy property to live in for small families, couples, 2 x couples so 4 adults, as well as your welcome furry friend. We as owners enjoy the beach with our french bulldog x pug, can walk for miles up the beach to have it to ourselves, not over crowded like coastal towns nearer to Brisbane, retaining that untouched beach village appeal.

Excellent weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the swans nest beach house. It had everything we needed and is in a fantastic location-walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants and local cafes. The fenced yard was perfect for our dog and Luan was lovely to deal with. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others

The property was clean and tidy when we arrived. The instruction on how to use the house were simple and clear. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would reccomend fixing the front screen door.

Great house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This holiday home has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Great enclosed garden at the rear for the dogs and just a short walk to the shops and beach. Not a spacious house but certainly met our needs. Would recommend if you want a nice little place to stay that's clean and convenient for Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay or Inskip. We will go back.

Property desperately needs some TLC.

  • 1 of 5

I feel we were well overcharged for our 2 night stay at this Property.

The Lock on the Front Screen Door is worn out and unlockable with key.

Aircon. in Lounge Room only worked at room temp.

Oven Door does not seal as door won't close completely , No Griller base in Stove as well.

Powerpoint in Kitchen hanging by 1 screw.

Not worth the price we paid !

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry that you are unhappy with your booking. We have had no other feedback advising us of these issues. We visit the property regularly using everything and this was not the case 2 weeks prior to your arrival, so we'll ensure to check and rectify everything you list as necessary straight away. You are advised in our guide that the grill has no tray however this does not affect it's use with using an alternative tray from the oven. We will always address all property issues with urgency to satisfy guests when we are advised, and are continually modifying the property to improve it. It is unfortunate it was not suitable for you. Thanks again, Luan.

Ideal accommodation for our weekend at Rainbow. Clean and comfortable, and the shower was absolute heaven after a cold, rainy day on the beach! We will definitely be back!
