“Peace on Earth”
Reviewed August 26, 2008

We recently took a winter escape to Queensland and after some searching on the internet discovered a new property known as Pure Magnetic on Magnetic Island.

Dealing directly with the property, we quickly arrange a 7 night booking for our family of 2 adults and 1 six year old.

Arriving at the property was a breeze. Easy flight to Townsville airport, quick tranfer to the Sun Ferries terminal for the fast 20 minute jetcat to Magnetic Island. We were met at the terminal by the staff and driven 5 minutes to the accommodations.

And what accommodation it is. Pure Magnetic is nestled on the beach and consists of 10 stunning 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Balinese themed villa's tucked around beautiful gardens and a lovely pool. Each villa has all the modern conveniences from big plasma TV's and DVD players to ceiling fans and air-con, to a lovely outdoor deck and BBQ area.

It was peace on earth. Waking each morning to the sound of lorrikeets, cooking meals on the BBQ supplied to each unit and drifting off to sleep to the sound of the waves and sea breeze.

All amenities are at hand, especially a supermarket at Nelly Bay for those that like to cook in. Service from the staff was quiet but attentive with the apartments cleaned each day.

Magnetic Island is a quiet spot and we loved it. Whether beach combing to jet skiiing at Horseshoe Bay to taking the jeytcat out to the reef for some scuba diving, it was a fantastic stay.

We highly recommend Pure Magnetic to anyone looking for an elegant get away in a peaceful location.
