Overview

About the property

High on a hill with panoramic views of Moreton Bay, this is the perfect place to relax and watch the Bay. The ever changing view of ferries and boats during the day progresses to stunning sunsets and finishes with the colourful lights of Brisbane and moonlight on water.

The landscaped gardens attract a wide range of native visitors, particularly birdlife. Honeyeaters feed on the grevilleas next to the deck and rosellas, kookaburras, magpies and butcher birds are regular visitors whilst overhead eagles soar and pelicans wheel on the thermals.

Tiled throughout, the open plan living makes the most of the views with dining room, sitting room and modern kitchen all overlooking the Bay. Two bedrooms with queen size beds have water views whilst the third with king size single bunks looks out into the garden. All the rooms have reverse cycle air-conditioning with individual controls.

Children are well catered for. There is a cot, and a trundle bed in addition to the two bunks and we also provide a high chair. The bunks and trundle can be made up for either boys or girls.

A recent renovation has installed a luxury bathroom. A duo tub with waterfall spout and a large open shower with both rainfall and waterfall outlets together with the handmade crystalline basins makes this a place to luxuriate in.

Glass doors open on to a large timber deck, which is sheltered from the sun by sails and floodlit at night. This makes it ideal for entertaining. A barbeque and outdoor table seating for 10 completes the picture. The stunning views of Moreton Bay during the day and the Brisbane lights at night make this a wonderful place to have a meal or read a book.

Nestled into the hill on the opposite side from the deck is a heated pool and spa for the private use of the occupants of the property. Sheltered from the wind it is the perfect place to relax and swim where elsewhere is windy and cold. Underwater lighting adds to the ambience and provides the perfect spot for evening drinks or a late night swim on warm nights.

The price includes linen with the exception of beach and pool towels. The beds are made up to your requirements and a weekly change of linen is provided.

A scenic walk through the bush, or a short drive by car, brings you to Brown Lake with its sandy beaches - a popular swimming and canoeing area. Close at hand is the golf club, the airstrip and beautiful Blue Lake. Sandy beaches at the bottom of the hill give access to Moreton Bay for swimming or fishing.

A pleasant 20 minute drive to the other side of the island takes you to Point Lookout with it's patrolled ocean beaches and scenic gorge walk whilst a short drive the other way takes you to a 30 km fishing and walking beach.

If you have a boat it can be launched nearby and you can snorkel Horseshoe Bay, explore Moreton Island or meander through the other islands of the inland waterway of Moreton Bay.

Only a few minutes from the ferry and water taxi, this is a quiet and peaceful retreat even during peak holiday periods.

North Stradbroke - the Magic Island

Ride a ferry across Moreton Bay to North Stradbroke Island and a strange event occurs. . your mind and body relax . you return to a more easy going time - natures time.

Moreton Bay Marine Park crosses the climate zones with tropical, subtropical and temperate wildlife species. Its wetlands, some of the best in Australia, support and shelter fish, birds and other wildlife, sand flats provide roosting sites for migratory birds, pods of dolphins cruise the bay and sea grass beds nurture fish, shellfish, dugong and turtles.

Straddie is a Noah's Ark of rare and endangered land and sea creatures and habitat. There are 18 species of land mammals including wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas, koalas and bandicoots. Reptiles include turtles, tortoise and lizards. There are several frog species and hundreds of bird species from raptors to honeyeaters and migratory wading birds.

The finest spa doesn't compare with the silken waters of a sand island's freshwater lakes. Blue Lake (Karboora) is a window into the water table that underlies Straddie's sand masses. Brown Lake (Bummeira) is surrounded by tea-trees to rest under and is imbued with the healing, soothing essence of their oils.

North Stradbroke Island is just off the coast of Brisbane in Moreton Bay. There are three small, distinctly different townships

Dunwich - is the gateway to the island by ferry and has a range of cafes, shops and services. It's a historical town with a rich heritage. Visit the Historical Museum for a venture back into the past and stroll through the old cemetery.

Amity Point - is a small seaside village. It is a favourite fishing spot for people, pelicans and dolphins.

Point Lookout - is popular for its magnificent surf beaches, whale watching from the headland, retail shops, restaurants. The magnificent Gorge Walk around the headland is well worth doing.

The island has essential services such as post offices, ambulance centres, doctors, pharmacies, 24-hour emergency medical assistance and police.

Serenity

  • 5 of 5

Seachange provided the perfect space to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Straddie. The apartment was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. We particularly appreciated how well our children were catered for with toys, a highchair and cot. Both children loved the garden and visiting the chickens.

Thank you to Lyndal for being easy to contact while she was away and for responding so quickly to our request. The information booklet provided was also a great guide to the island.

A wonderful stay!

Absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend at the lovely Sea Change at Stradbroke and couldn't have asked for more! The view from inside, on the deck and in the backyard was spectacular day and night. The garden was beautifully landscaped with flowering natives attracting wildlife and lovely grassed areas where we sprawled in the sunshine while our baby happily crawled around exploring. The pool looks very inviting but we sadly didn't make use of it this trip. Inside was spacious and warm with lots of books, DVDs, magazines, toys, puzzles etc to use if you like. Communication with owner was excellent and very helpful when I originally emailed to ask a question. We would highly recommend this home as a place for anyone and everyone to enjoy - couples, small families, larger families and groups of friends!!! 10 out of 10! Thanks for having us!!!!

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

As a family we had a great stay here, there was plenty of space, perfectly situated to explore. We were very comfortable and would definitely recommend this property. The hosts who live upstairs were very accommodating helped us with any questions if we needed but also kept their distance.

Delightful house, incredible view.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Sea Change with my parents, sister and 2 year old daughter and we all loved our time there. The house is well equipped with all the amenities, and had everything I needed for my child including cot, highchair, child friendly toys and DVDs. The beds were comfortable, and I wanted to take the fridge and air conditioning home with me!

Our hosts were incredibly welcoming, and provided helpful suggestions about what to do and where to eat.

The views were incredible and the pictures don't do it justice. The landscaped gardens were gorgeous (my daughter loved collecting gum nuts) and we enjoyed the refreshing breeze and stunning sunsets in the comfortable deck chairs. Unfortunately the mozzies did too, but after some aeroguard they stayed away. We felt immediately at home and can't thank our hosts enough for providing such a beautiful place to call home for 3 days.

Awesome views

Stayed here at the start of September. The house is clean and well equipped. The deck was amazing with views of Brisbane, it was so peaceful, no noise other than the birds! Right beside brown lake as well.

Family Friendly Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our 4 and 6 year old kids stayed here for 2 weeks. This was our second holiday at Straddie and our first time at Sea Change at Stradbroke. The hosts are amazing, non-intrusive, yet incredibly accommodating. The property has wonderful views and was clean and tidy. I cannot recommend this property highly enough.
