Driftwood Toolakea at beautiful Toolakea Beach, located in the Northern Beaches of Townsville approx. 30 minutes drive from Townsville’s city centre.

The space

Bring your family and enjoy our house as much as we do. Walking this beach at low tide is a very special experience. The house is only 25 minutes drive from the Paluma and Crystal Creek Rainforest area which is lovely to Explore the rainforest, bush walk in the stunning green wilderness, take a dip in many of the waterholes and springs along the way, or picnic on the rocks by a waterfall! We are also very lucky to be within a 8 minute drive of the popular Bluewater swimming hole so be sure to drop in for a quick dip and picnic.The house is airconditioned in all bedrooms, has ceiling fans throughout the property and offers 3 bedrooms, dining room, lounge area and modern kitchen. There is a large back patio, looking out to the beach where you will spend most of your time. This is complete with another dining area, lounge chairs and looks out over the backyard with direct access to the beach. We also have a fire pit in the back yard which is lovely in the winter nights to enjoy.
Three bedrooms feature a queen bed to two of the rooms and a double to the third. There is a fold out Sofa Bed in the lounge room as well. There is a King Single Bed on the back Patio which we use as a Day Bed. The laundry has a full size washing machine. Both bathrooms have shower only in both. There are two TV’s, one in the lounge room and one mounted on the wall on the back patio. There is a DVD player in the lounge with a selection of DVDs for you to enjoy. There are also board games and card games for you to use. Bed linen, bath and beach towels are provided. There is a stereo with CD’s for you to play whilst staying. The house has been fully renovated, is a lovely cool modern space and you will feel relaxed as soon as you sit on the back patio area. There is a BBQ provided on the back patio area. There is free WiFi available. As Toolakea is approximately 25 minutes from Townsville you will need your own vehicle as there is no public transport.

This is a great house located right on the beach. The house was lovely and it was nice that Maree had provided a number of personal touches, like toiletries. The kitchen was also well stocked and Maree provided extras, a loaf of bread, milk, butter, drinks etc. A great place to relax and feel at home.

The stay at Marees House was really great-we (3 adults and two Kids 12 and 5) enjoyed it soooo much. It was so great that we decided to stay even longer than planned. The location is phantastic -close to the beach but far away from any trouble. For us it was the perfect stay-really relaxing like a home away from home. We found some ideas what to do while staying and did a tour to a creek 40km away which was really fun for all of us. Thank you Marree for these wonderful days in your lovely house! Hope to come again once Melina

A home away from home! A wonderful space to kick back in, relax & enjoy the surroundings. We were never short of homely comforts, from the fluffy towels & bathroom necessities. To the different games, instruments & free wifi. The house itself was comfortable, but the central patio is the perfect place to enjoy the North Queensland beach lifestyle. Hearing the ocean & experiencing a bond fire is only the start of great times this property can offer. Maree is an exceptional host. Always answering questions quickly prior to our stay & during. Her hospitality was next to none with the extras she provided. From the variety of coffee available, to the fridge & pantry items that proved valuable all stay. With a large family group, sharing in long weekend fun, it's not easy to please everyone...this property was a winner! Maree & her beach house has definitely set a high standard for future Airbnb experiences. Would highly recommend this property & would definitely stay again. Thanks Maree

Perfect for a family beach getaway. Great location in a quiet neighbourhood, right on the beach, lots of space, super comfy beds and all the facilities you could possibly need for a really relaxing holiday. The nearest supermarket is a fair drive away so take food and drinks so you can slip straight into relaxing. We loved it and would definitely stay there again.

Being right on the beach in a quiet area away from shops and traffic makes this a great escape. Maree' very generous supplies were a wonderful welcome and very much appreciated. The outdoor living area is very comfortable and relaxing with views and walking track onto the beach. Off this and up 3 steps is the air conditioned master suite which has a deck overlooking the beach. Well appointed kitchen and 2 flat screen tvs and a new BBQ are the icing on the cake at this property. Thanks Maree.

I live in Townsville with my husband and family and we have always dreamed of owning a place on the beach for us to enjoy with our friends and family. We discovered Toolakea beach about 5 years ago whilst visiting a friend who lived out there and were lucky enough to purchase a very run down beach hut after that visit. We have renovated the house and made it a lovely comfortable home which we enjoy on weekends with our family and friends. We love to fish off the beach, walk at low tide, have a fire at night time, and visit Crystal Creek, Rollingstone or Bluewater for an afternoon swim in the summer. We hope you get as much fun and enjoyment out of our home that we do.
