“Wouldn't stay anywhere else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011 via mobile

Staying at Beachside Magnetic Island made our already amazing holiday that much better. We received such a warm welcome by a staff member who showed us around the apartment and explained how to work all the appliances etc. Perfectly located about a 5 minute walk from ferry terminal, bus stop and car hire shop, we found it so easy to get around the island with this apartment as our base. We ate out a lot but cooked a couple of meals at home during our 5 day stay. It was so blissful to be in the kitchen with the whole downstairs area completely opened up to the balcony looking over the marina. The bedroom, walk in robe and ensuite bathroom were all huge, especially the large spa bath also overlooking the marina that I enjoyed relaxing in several times while my boyfriend was out fishing!! Mark was really helpful with our check out process, offering to hold our luggage for the day as we weren't leaving the island until later that afternoon - he even offered a late check out free of charge. Such a great place to stay...we recommend to couples (you still get the large, 2 story apartment...they just lock the 2nd and 3rd bathrooms) families and/or groups. The $225 a night that we paid was worth every cent and we can't wait to come and stay again

What an amazing place - would recommend for couples looking for a romantic trip away or even families.
We stayed in a 2 level townhouse which was immaculately clean and had everything that you could think of.....well equipped kitchen (including dishwasher), laundry with washing machine, dryer and clothes airer , a spacious table and full sized bbq on the balcony, foxtel and a cd player with an ipod docking station.
The main living area downstairs had doors that retracted and pushed right back to fully open the living area and/or kitchen onto the main balcony which had gorgeous views of the marina.
The master bedroom was to die for with a huge walk in wardrobe, extra comfortable bed, and a small balcony with outdoor chairs. Everything had been thought of as the tv in the master bedroom could actually be angled to view from the balcony if wanted.
The ensuite was a world of class with double basins, a huge shower and the show piece....a gorgeous spa bath which had windows that retracted to allow an open air bathing experience.
With only a 5min walk to the ferry I can not speak highly enough of Beachside Magnetic Harbour Holiday Apartments!

Room Tip: 2 level townhouse to provide best view

Me (25) and girlfriend (23) from Townsville stayed in apartment 7 on the ground level for 2 nights. It was a perfect romantic getaway. The master bedroom has a REAL king size bed (not too singles pushed together), with a Jacuzzi. The apartment has glass doors which all open up to give a great view of the marina and the apartment has its own access to the pool. Mark the hotel manager was great. He gave me a call to confirm the booking and saved me $100 by recommending the 1 bedroom apartment rather than the 2 bedroom. They are same apartments, but they simply lock the other room. 3pm checkout was also a nice touch. Honestly, pay the money. You won't be disappointed.

We are, mother and daughter, we stayed at Beachside for 3 nights, wish it had been for longer. A big thank you to Mark, who manages the apartments for assisting us with our mammoth cases. He was most helpful. The apartments are clean, bright, with large open plan area. Huge fridge freeezer. Separate laundry room. Bedrooms with loads of storage, walk in dressing room/wardrobe. Large bathrooms. The swimming pool is designed for swimmers and those that just want to float around in the warm water. All rooms have large balconies and good views of the harbour. Walking distance to ferry at Nelly Bay. Set in a very quiet area but close to all amenities. Walking on Magnetic Island just has to be done. The bus service around the island is very good.

Hands-down, the best accommodation in Nelly Bay and possibly all of Magnetic Island. Great layout, well furnished, lovely views and breezes. Short walk to grocery store, cafes, ferry terminal, and beach. A bit expensive but well worth it. Will not disappoint.

Absolute waterfront luxury at an affordable rate. We were able to sit on the balcony overlooking the Marina and Coral Sea on one side whilst watching sea eagles feeding their young on the other. Great dining is on the doorstep or you can hire a mini-moke across the road to explore this fantastic location

Fantastic setting right on the sea. Very clean and classy and well appointed apartment. A great place to just chill for a while.
Friendly people , couldn't ask for more. Well worth it.
