Zuna Island Escape, The Ultimate Getaway

Sold by Barbara Wolveridge and Lynn Malone

Zuna Island Escape takes 'getting away from it all' to the next level ticking all of the boxes for a boho beach lifestyle with its white-sand beach, turquoise waters of the Coral Sea and lifetime views of the lapping ocean waves. Make it the getaway of your dreams, or develop Zuna Island Escape as a boutique resort combining business with pleasure. Remote working is a breeze with access to 4G mobile service and high-speed internet.

North-facing oceanfront and 100% off-the-grid, Zuna Island Escape is an eco-friendly private residence with a guest house where every day is like an endless holiday to relax and revitalise. It is an island hideaway created to connect with nature and experience a simpler life. For the adventurous, days are idyllically filled fishing, snorkelling, hiking through the Island Reserve or diving the coral-rich seas. Cooking the catch-of-the-day on the BBQ while enjoying the ocean views and sipping a cool drink is the way of life.

The primary residence is a one-bedroom cottage with rustic and smart interior finishes constructed using locally sourced timber with sandstone features. Cooled by the sea breezes or air-conditioned to counter the tropical climate, the home is comfortable and easily maintained. With open plan living, modern kitchen and mezzanine bedroom, the cottage comes furnished, equipped and move-in ready.

A two-bedroom bungalow offers self-contained furnished and equipped accommodations for the staff or overnight guests. Included are separate storage facilities for the solar components, a back-up generator, maintenance equipment and a workshop. Fresh rainwater fills the tanks that store over 80,000 litres of renewable resources.

If developing Zuna Island Escape as an eco-resort is on the agenda, a design concept is included and is also in place.

Like most private islands, Zuna Island is accessible by boat or helicopter. From the Cairns Airport, it is under three hours door-to-door to your island hideaway.
