Ball Bay Beachouse Beauty

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Three bedroom beach front home at beautiful Ball Bay, nestled between Cape Hillsborough where the wallabies gather on the beach and Haliday Bay where the golfers enjoy the golf resort. Walk in robe and ensuite bathroom from main bedroom and second toilet in laundry area. Unspoilt beach with lots of birdlife in the area. Fishing off the beach or in your boat, it is all there in this small piece of paradise surrounded by National Park. Just relax on the verandah and view the base of the Whitsunday islands out front or else indulge in a good book as there aren't any coffee shops in this village, just holiday makers and residents enjoying the tranquility. There is a local bowls club nearby if that interests you and the large town of Mackay is 25mins. away by car, otherwise the town of Seaforth is a 5 minute drive.

For the children, swimming enclosures are located at Seaforth and also 5 mins. away at Haliday Bay where there is also the golf resort. Turtle hatching is a must see in the early hours during the Summer months.


Bedroom one has a queen size bed, bedroom 2 a double bed and bedroom 3 a single. Rates are for 2 people but a maximum of 5 is allowed at extra cost. Linen is provided, however bring your own bath and beach towels or else these can be hired for the duration of your stay.

Awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

All of us from 5 years old to 94 loved our stay at Ball Bay Beach house.

We walked along the beach, swam, ate, slept and read books on the wonderful veranda. Simply heaven, a perfect place to get away from it all...

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Lee for your review. What wonderful guests you were. My previous guests advised of possibly losing a second iPhone which your grand daughter found and you immediately drove into Mackay to express post to them ( 40kms) You are the the 5 star guests! I am sure that you would be welcome wherever you stayed
