About the property

Come, relax and unwind at K'Garie Cottage Boonooroo. It is situated in a small coastal village on the Fraser Coast 20 km south of Maryborough. The Great Sandy Strait, the stretch of water that separates the mainland from Fraser Island, is on your doorstep. Catch whiting, flathead, tailor and other species as well as crabs in season in the many mangrove estuaries and the deep channel of the strait.

Walk only 40 m and you come to the tidal estuary of Little Tuan Creek. Throw a line in or marvel at the solider crabs on the mud flats at low tide. For the boaties, there is an all tide boat ramp a few minutes' drive away at Big Tuan.

The house is fully screened with Crimsafe doors and most windows and there are views of Fraser Island and Inskip Point. It comfortably sleeps 6, 1 queen, 1 double and 2 single beds. There are 2 bathrooms, a main bathroom with bath and an ensuite. It has an open plan kitchen, dining and living area with electric stove, microwave, fridge and basic appliances. There is a TV/DVD player and in the laundry there is an extra fridge and chest freezer as well as a front loader washing machine.

The large yard is fenced for those of you with small children or pets, with plenty of room for them to run around. There is a study nook in one of the bedrooms if you wish to bring your laptop. Telstra mobile and Telstra prepaid wireless broadband have excellent reception.

The community of Boonooroo has an active Bowls club in walking distance and a little further on, a small golf club. Even closer, at the top of the street there is a public tennis court, playground and picnic area.

The area is a haven for a large variety of birds and other wild life. It is not uncommon to see kangaroos grazing nearby.

Boonooroo is a great central place to explore the region with historic Maryborough 20 minutes away, and Hervey Bay, Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach between 50 minutes to a little over an hour drives.

So, why not think about K'Gari Cottage for your next holiday.

For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts"

Lovely little place but in desperate need of some updated furniture and a thorough clean.

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I loved the location. It was very nice and quiet. We found the house to be very well epuiped with everything we needed, however, the furniture was old and dusty and the floors were dirty and we pulled the couch back and there was dust everywhere. We sneezed and coughed the whole time we were there and there was so much dust it felt like things were crawling on us. My husband sneezed so much, he popped a blood vessel in his eye. The windows were dirty and we struggled to open and clothes the main security doors. We ended up leaving a day early as it was unbearable.

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

House was lovely and had plenty of extras.

Clean and well appointed.

About the only thing we weren't particularly happy with was the locks on the doors. They need some maintenance and more keys or keyed alike locks so there's not only one entry point. Also tho TV kept dropping out, possibly an aerial problem caused by the horrific weather the week we were there.

Overall, it's a very nice property, caretaker is nice and owner is also very nice.

great location.

If you are a Golfer or Lawn Bowler, could not find a better location or better home. We stayed 8 weeks with our Westie "Angus". Great meals at both Bowls & Golf Clubs.
