Unique location right on the ocean, spacious house with spectacular views and pool.
Situated atop the world-famous dunes on prestigious Cooloola Drive, the only ocean-front street with ocean views in Rainbow Beach. A secluded retreat for those who want to feel immersed in the beautiful Great Sandy National Park and ocean front living. Sea breezes, crashing waves, birdsong, and awesome sunrise and sunset views from Fraser Island to Double Island Point.
Scribbly Gums is a much loved, simple-style family beach house offered for others to enjoy its fun, indoor-outdoor lifestyle surrounded by nature.
The living is all on one level flowing out to the pool and deck area. In fact, the three bedrooms have doors that open straight onto the pool, with views to the ocean beyond.
The large open plan kitchen-dining area is a gathering point in the house with plenty of room for preparing and enjoying meals and games together.
Two bathrooms give everyone comfortable space.
The homes location offers the best of everything: high enough for the wonderful views, but not too high to walk home from the beach! The heart of town and the patrolled beach are just 10 minutes walk via the stairs at the end of Cooloola Drive, or use our secret path from the back gate to take you through the National Park to the sand dunes. Youll also be in one of the closest spots in Rainbow from where you can walk to the Carlo Sand Blow for stunning sunrises and sunsets. And on top of it all, when you retreat to the privacy of the house and pool deck, youll feel a world away from the bustle of the the town.
From the tranquil deck area; listen to native birds in the surrounding banksias and gum trees, watch the paragliders sail past at eye level, and spot migrating whales (approx. June - Oct).
