About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Cottage with Ocean Views

Yenningeeboora (place of Paradise)

Yinningeeboora sleeps 8 people

This cottage has full ocean views from an elevated timber deck and is a 20 meter walk down a track to the 75mile beach. This cottage has complete access to the gorgeous rolling waves of the ocean onto amazing sands of Fraser Island.

This cottage has been extensively renovated, and the property owners have spared no expense to make sure visitors have all the creature comforts of home.

Yenningeeboora is complete with a spacious timber deck secured with a self-closing gate to keep the dingos out. This deck has a large stainless steel outdoor BBQ and a huge timber BBQ table setting.

Walking through the front glass doors entering the Yenningiboora is like stepping back in time. You are now walking on the maheno ship wreck decking, the Teak timber was laid in 1905 onto the Maheno ship. This deck was removed from the Maheno when it was marooned and used as the flooring in the previous shack that once stood in place of the newly renovated cottage.

The builder who completed the renovation was able to salvage the maheno deck flooring and give it a new lease on life. This flooring has been restored and coated as the main living area in the Yenningeeboora. This area consists of a spacious kitchen dining area and large lounge room with high racked ceilings.

Walking from the deck inside the ocean views follow you with almost the entire eastern wall of the Yeningeeboora glazed, with the high racked ceilings this spacious living room takes advantage of the uninterrupted ocean views.

The kitchen is a 3m x 3.5m L shaped kitchen complete with gas cook top and range hood over, gas oven, a microwave oven, large fridge freezer, and all kitchen utensils required for any cook up.

Leaving the main living area down the hall wall way you will find a separate nook with a chest freezer for fishing bait storage and any fish caught to be frozen and taken home.

Further down the hall way you will find a newly renovated large modern bathroom complete with large shower toilet area and vanity unit. With fantastic water pressure and hot water heated from the sola arc hot water system on the roof and backed up with instantaneous gas, showers will always be hot and enjoyable.

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.
