Imagine waking up to the million dollar views from your bed in the owners South house

Whales can be seen in season frolicking just off the point. Experience magical sunsets.
The guest accommodation is mostly in the North area, a large family or group house of solid
timber construction, the floors have been replaced and mostly tiled.
ALL of these houses have million dollar views.
These North buildings were dormitories slept 18 to 20. Now all the furniture has been replaced.
Nearby the second North building is block and tile construction suit a family with ensuite.
In the centre area is a large solid timber house with two large double bedrooms with room for
extra beds. Down a few steps there are 4 single beds, were divided into two bedrooms, again
used as a dormitory with extra single beds and bunk beds previously slept 12 to 14.
Next to the large centre house is the Big Shed where many years ago dances were held.
This Big Shed now contains the new kitchen with commercial deep fryer and two stove/ovens, a large 12 volt fridge and a 12 volt chest freezer, 240 volt items run from inverters when the main generator is off. At the new sink there now is a filtered water tap for drinking water. Out from the kitchen and bar is the new covered beer garden or dining area. Sit and enjoy a meal or drinks taking in those million dollar views of Homestead bay to the mainland. At the rear of the Big Shed is the long workshop, tools, solar battery bank and large charger.
Nearby is the old caravan that a caretaker lived in now used for storage.
Next is the new cabin built by a team of 6 builders who also did other jobs and repairs.
The cabin is suitable for a couple and two children, it also has million dollar views.
A storage shipping container has heaps of new and spare parts, electrical, plumbing, wiring.

St Bees Island has the most prolific, healthy KOALA population in Queensland.

The lease is over 10 acres, but the buyer has the whole 1,100ha island as their backyard.
NO other person lives, or is allowed to stay on St Bees Island unless in our resort.
All the moorings in Homestead bay belong to me, registered at GBRMPA, I can transfer my
moorings to the buyer. NO other boat can use my moorings, Homestead Bay is under my control.
The buyer has access to all the lovely sandy beaches and bays all around St Bees Island to
investigate, bush walks, rainforests, fishing, scuba or snorkeling are popular past times with
coral reefs around the island, the best reef in the area is right out front of Homestead Bay.
After rain the waterfalls run, mostly the North creek and the South creek, rock pools to cool off.
I have recently gained approval from DNRM and Mackay Regional Council for limited guests holiday accommodation, a boutique resort. Though the buyer may require the privacy of keeping the island solely for their own use and enjoyment.
This lease previously sold for $5.6 Million in a dilapidated state, unloved with junk left everywhere. Unfortunately previous owners left behind everything bought to the island.
In the past 3 years I have invested a considerable amount of money, workers, improvements, the work we have done has vastly improved St Bees Island. Plus in the last year a considerable amount has been spent on renovations to kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms.
As an optional extra is my Alum. Loading Barge, twin Cummings 330hp diesels, hydraulic landing ramp and winches. This Loading Barge is an integral asset to the island supplying all fuels, food and heavy items, you can drive a vehicle up onto it. NO other Whitsunday island except Hamilton and Hayman have their own such loading barge. Included is a near 5 metre alum. fishing boat and about (8) other small boats.

We know from experience ST BEES ISLAND is THE BEST tropical island paradise you can buy.
