Macleay Island, Redland City, Brisbane Region, Queensland
This holiday home was architecturally designed to capture the magnificent water views across Moreton Bay, to the mainland and hinterland beyond. Fourteen metres of floor-to-ceiling glass, slides open and ensures you enjoy spectacular sunsets from the living and dining rooms.. perhaps while sipping a chilled champagne or enjoying a glass of cold beer. Louvre windows and overhead ceiling fans allow for the cooling island breezes to circulate and flow throughout the open-plan house.

Upstairs, the master suite is an open-plan bedroom and ensuite area, encouraging 'time out' for adults. The bed faces the waters of Moreton Bay, so why not laze in bed or read the Sunday papers while soaking up the wonderful view. Once again, floor to ceiling glass opens from the bedroom onto your own private deck - have breakfast or coffee there, while...

Interaction with guests
Sunset Waters has the advantage of housekeepers who live next door. They will introduce themselves after your arrival and explain all about our holiday home and things to do around the island. Should you then like your complete privacy, you wont see them. Alternatively, if you'd like a recommendation for a club to dine in while staying or a beach for swimming, then just pop next door and ask ... they are always happy to help.

Sunset Waters is located within an island community overlooking the sea inlet on the southern side of Macleay Island. Whilst there is limited tourism on the island it is essentially a village community whose only means of transport is via ferry to the mainland at Redland Bay. The property is very well appointed with ample room for four or even...

A great trip by ferry to the island, very unusual. Great location on the island and wonderful views to wake up to.

Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Brisbane: 24.9 mi
Ferry: Macleay Island Jetty: 1.5 mi
Just a note also for your information: Macleay Island 'is' an island as such, without a bridge joining it to the mainland. As many island residents work in Brisbane, they commute daily, with Macleay being well serviced by transport options to and from the mainland. There are passenger ferries (taking passengers only) and barges (moving people in their cars); with both services operating regularly between 5am-6pm, 7 days a week. On a map, Macleay is located approx half way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast - a central position to both these well loved holiday areas.
Most international/interstate guests fly into Brisbane, grab a hire car; then the drive to Redland Bay is an easy 45mins directly south over the Gateway Bridge.
