Our iconic Thong Trees are often photographed by visitors to West Point and occasionally we find a gifted thong to add to the collection.Once you reach the West Point settlement, just follow the green thong tree arrow trail which will lead you to our house

El lugar

Our beach house is still open to visitors even though our warmer months approach. We had >800mL of rain in March which filled our tanks but made the road impassable for a few days. It has been mostly clear and sunny since.
Between April and September is the best time to visit our little piece of paradise for people in southern hemisphere who are looking to escape their cold winters, however our spring and summer times are perfect for travellers from northern hemisphere who are looking to escape to a warm tropical island. We can offer a budget priced experience in a peaceful slice of paradise.
The upper deck is 8x8 square metres and is fully screened with 360 degree views of bush behind and beach at the front. It is a quiet eco-friendly retreat but is not wheel chair accessible as there are 13 steps to reach this spacious living area.
There is a lounge and dining area adjacent to the sleeping space with a couple of hammocks ready if you feel that way inclined.
There is a desk with a magnificent view and a games table with a variety of card and board games for you to use including one that we developed called "Going Troppo!!"
We have renovated our original kitchen (with refrigerator and gas stove) & bathroom downstairs, which is for guests sole use. We have kept many of the original artefacts on display. There are barbecues outside too.
A portable cot is available on request.
We hope you will find it is a peaceful place to escape to and unwind.

Atención a los huéspedes

We love to have a cuppa in the morning or a catch up at the end of the day and we are more than happy to share our experiences with visitors.
We are early risers and are happy for guests enjoy a walk along the beach with us early in the morning, explore our magical island during the day and return in time for sunset in the afternoon. Happy hour is a highlight most evenings. David is happy to share some local fishing tips if guests are interested and we like to share produce in season from our garden.

Otros aspectos destacables

In the cooler months you will need warm clothing in the evening and although the house is fully screened you may need insect repellent around dusk. A fan is available if needed but we do NOT have air conditioners.
When guests reach the T junction at West Point, it is best to take the right hand fork and follow the track to the end. Follow the GREEN arrows which will lead you into our back yard. Do not take the road to the left as the track is soft sand where hire cars are not permitted.

If you do not have transport, please send us a message through Airbnb and we will see if we can arrange a lift for you.

We loved this place! David and Judy were the best host you could imagine, and went over and above to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. They even brought us fresh eggs from their chickens! The house is a 30 min drive from the main attractions in town, so plan well to go in when you need to. There's practically a private beach just 1 min walk from the house - we spent an entire day and loved it! We did have a small car packed down, and the road was rough making it a pain to get in. Well worth it though!!!

These guys really are gems, and if you're lucky enough to take advantage of their hospitality, do it! They could keep you happy just about anywhere I reckon! Their home is practically paradise, so bring your happy face, you'll need it. If you want to fall asleep to the sound of koalas arguing, wallabies thumping along the sand, and every bird you can imagine, this is the spot. On the 'West Point' of Maggie, there are no backpackers, and no bus stops. Just an amazing view, and a pair of dreamers who built their own Xanadu. They spoiled us with tropical fruits we'd never seen, and home buzzed honey, games and great company. And they never said a word when we slept all day! Oh, take me back!

We had high expectations of our stay after reading previous reviews and if anything the reality was even better! All sorts of touches that helped us feel at home and welcomed into Judy and David's lives. Airbnb at its best!

Judy and David went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed our time and Thong Tree and would recommend it to anyone looking at just getting away from the world and relaxing with a spot of fishing and a cold beer! Dave was very accommodating at taking us fishing and showing us how it's done. Thank you both so much!

Absolutely loved our accommodation at Judy and David's. Wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights. Judy and David have thought of everything you could want or need and some more and have provided all the comforts of a home away from home. They made us feel very welcome and comfortable. If you want to get away from it all and be one with nature then i highly recommend you book here. Their little piece of paradise has a quirky, fun, chillaxing, nostalgic feel that we loved. Thanks Judy and David for sharing your home with us. I hope we can return. Deb n Mark

David and Judy own a beautiful house on a truly unique piece of magnetic island. We loved our stay. Only a few steps away from the beach which really feels like a private beach. We loved exploring West Point; the beach, beautiful creeks etc. David and Judy are great hosts. They now so much about Magnetic island, make you feel at home and you feel the love they have for there unique spot. We loved the sunsets we had together. Eating Shrimps, fishing all unique experiences. Last but not least magnetic island is a great island to explore with our young family. We loved swimming at horseshoe bay, spotting koalas in the wild and just wandering around the island.

We are a semi-retired couple who appreciate the simple things in life.
We both enjoy reading, walking on our beach, spending time with our grandchildren,meeting new people and sharing our wonderful way of life.
We both help at our local museum. I have recently starting playing mah-jong & am loving it. (It's been on my bucket list for a long time)
When we travel we always like to stay with other Airbnb hosts; this makes our trips so much more enjoyable. I guess you could say our motto is 'always look on the bright side of life!'
