Not a bad word to say about this beautiful house. Such an amazing location with just a few steps to the beach and a fabulous view. The owners were very accommodating and the house is well maintained. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Double carport available for parking that boat and car/caravan etc. Ball Bay is situated just north of Mackay with a beautiful unspoilt beach.

Airlie Beach is approximately one hour north by car. Local Bowls club with meals available at Seaforth as well as tennis courts, BMX track, general store and service station.
Fishing off the beach or in your boat, golfing and bowls nearby if that is your interest or just lazing on the front deck with a good book. Our family of Curlews usually arrive each morning, as do the whistler ducks seeking food offerings so 'Just relax' at the beachouse.
