Overview

About the property

BRAND NEW 3 bed/2 bath Cottage with original SS MAHENO DECK and ocean views!

The Southern Maheno Cottage, "Yenningee Bora" ('place of paradise'), is 1 of 2 self-contained cottages nestled into the hillside at Yidney Rocks, Fraser Island, overlooking beautiful 75 Mile Beach

(**Please see separate listing for Maheno Cottage “Tanaka” if you wish to book both properties for larger groups up to 18 guests**)

With uninterrupted ocean views, the Maheno Cottages are perfectly located approximately half-way up the east coast of Fraser. This location enables visitors who wish to explore the island the ability to do a day trips both north and south, taking in what Fraser Island has to offer: beaches, lakes, creeks, rain forests, 4x4 tracks, sand blows and endless scenery.

Having undergone extensive renovations, the property owners have spared no expense in ensuring guests have all the creature comforts of home.

"Yenningee Bora" is a 3 bedroom cottage, sleeping up 8 people. The Cottage has full ocean views from a large elevated timber deck (secured with a self-closing gate to keep dingoes out), complete with a huge 8-10 seater timber table and large stainless steel outdoor BBQ with kitchen servery - perfect for alfresco dining.

Walking through the front sliding glass doors (complete with CrimSafe screens) into the Cottage is like stepping back in time. Lovingly restored, you are now walking on the original Maheno Shipwreck decking, The teak timber was laid in 1905 onto SS Maheno. The timber deck was removed from the ship when it was marooned just north of Happy Valley in 1935 and used as the flooring in the previous fishing cottage that once stood in place of the now newly-renovated cottage. The builder who completed the renovation was able to salvage the original flooring and give it a new lease of life and now takes pride of place in the main open-plan living area.

The lounge room has a large 3m x 3m L-shaped lounge, complete with a 50" television and huge ceiling fan. With high-raked ceilings, the spacious living area takes full advantage of the uninterrupted ocean views and breeze. The dining room adjoining the lounge room hosts an 8-seater kitchen table.

The 3m x 3.5m L-shaped kitchen comes fully equipped with all modern appliances: oven, gas cook-top and range hood, large fridge/freezer, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, and all kitchen crockery/utensils. An additional fridge and chest freezer (for bait) is provided. Further down the hallway you will find a large, modern bathroom (complete with huge shower, toilet and vanity). With fantastic water pressure and constant hot water heated from the Solar Arc hot water system on the roof (backed up with instantaneous gas), showers will always be hot and enjoyable.

The 2 main bedrooms have queen beds (sleeping 2). Each room has high-raked ceilings, brand-new beds with innerspring mattresses. The third bedroom sleeps 4 (2 king single bunk beds). All bedrooms have 2 port racks, ceiling fans, smoke alarms, security/fly screens and roller blinds on all windows and privacy locks on all doors.

* ALL BED LINEN IS PROVIDED - bedsheets, pillows, blankets and bath towels

The Location:

World Heritage listed Fraser Island: the largest sand island in the world. Four-wheel drive through thick, lush rainforest to explore hidden lakes and discover endless tracks.

Conveniently located approximately half-way up the eastern coast of Fraser, Yidney Rocks is regarded by many as the ‘jewel’ of the Island, providing ideal access both north and south. Close to many of the Island’s highlights, Yidney Rocks is the perfect base to head north and explore the likes of Eli Creek, Maheno Shipwreck, Indian Head and Champagne Pools. Heading south will take you to Lake Wabby, Eurong and across the Island to Central Station and Lake McKenzie. Alternatively, take the short 40m walk down to the beach and spend your days fishing, right on your doorstep. From the front deck, immerse yourself with breath-taking sunrises over 75 Mile Beach and during whale-watching season (August to October), watch some of the 7000 humpback whales pass through for their annual migration.

Happy Valley is located only 1km away, providing access to full Telstra coverage, fuel, shop, pub and restaurant.

Yidney Rocks Maheno Cottage Southern

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented house set in a great location with great views of the ocean and beach. Ideal spot to base yourself if your wishing to explore the Eastern side of the island. Some good fishing spots in front of the property and an easy walk. I would highly recommend this property for a great holiday experience.

This cabin has no fan or fans , has no TV, has no lounge to speak of the only seating is at dinner table. Water pressure is a joke and same as there lighting.

Gass stove is a joke as is cooking gear fry pans etc.. To be honest we went and stayed at another place for night 2 because the heat in the cabin the night before was terrible. I have email the owner and requested 1 night refund with no response.

Heritage and Holiday. Maheno cottages gave us everything we could've asked for during our stay on Fraser Island. They may not look flash - but who wants flash - we wanted authenticity, family time, fishing and of course the view is to die for. Kitchen has everything you need and the beds are comfy with the sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep. Thoroughly recommend these cottages - we will definitely be back.
