Take it up a notch with a private tropical island, 100% off the grid
Take it up a notch with a private island home situated in the Great Barrier Reef Queensland, Australia, the ultimate in seclusion and a remote hideaway where your closest neighbours are sea turtles, schools of dolphin and tropical birds.
The recently renovated four-bedroom 350 sqm stylishly furnished residence situated on almost eight acres of unspoiled high land with a 360-degree panorama of Coral Sea views is move-in ready. And it's ready for business with a bed and breakfast licence in place or as an exclusive year-round retreat for you and yours – powered by the sun and quenched by rainwater, filtered for drinkability.
Welcome home to Victor Island, a reef island in tropical Queensland with its white sand beach is situated one kilometre off the Australian seaboard and accessible by boat, seaplane or helicopter. The island has been freshly reconstructed with an emphasis on sustainability and 100% off the grid where you live in barefoot luxury. On the island, there is no shortage of adventure with walking trails, fishing beaches and snorkelling – with priceless luxuries - fresh air and sunshine.
With the good life simplified – collect seasonal vegetables from the garden, a bounty of mangos at the doorstep, the catch-of-the-day and fresh oysters off your beach, and breakfast eggs courtesy of laying hens. The hard work is completed with the major infrastructure in place – leave your big city clothes behind and come dressed for tropical living as Victor Island is a shorts and t-shirts kind of place.
The ceiling in the main living area soars to five metres with multiple indoor and outdoor spaces for entertaining or simply, to relax and enjoy the sea breeze and sounds of silence. The main bedroom wing adjoins the living areas by an internal breezeway allowing easy separation of the bedroom wings for guests or configurated for holiday letting. Working remotely is seamless and connectible via NBN and mobile service.
By sea, Victor Island is a 20-minute boat ride from Hay Point Marina, a 30-minute drive from the Mackay Airport and quicker by helicopter, a 2 ½ hour flight from Sydney and 4 ½ hours from Melbourne, and a world away from the hectic pace of city life and overcrowded holiday resorts. Watching the sunset ensconced in the surrounds of your private island home makes memories for a lifetime.
Offered by private treaty sale, Victor Island is represented exclusively by Queensland Sotheby's International Realty. Barbara Wolveridge and Lynn Malone welcome your inquiry and to arrange an inspection – seeing is believing.
