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.

Relax

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.

Probably about my 10th time staying at this property and wont be my last. Walking distance to the pub, nice bathroom, good sized beds and bedrooms, an handy outdoor shower out the front and foxtel. A great little duplex that is fantastic for the price

Great place to stay with our small dog because of the fully fenced back yard. Everything was how it was described.

Great pet friendly place

  • 4 of 5

lovely little 2 bedroom house in a great position, only criticism was that the bed was way to hard, we have conveyed this to the owners, but if you like a hard bed you should have no complaints.
