De ruimte
We have owned and manage ECLECTIC PARADISE ourselves for over 20 years. We do not use real estate agencies or other third parties to look after our property. In addition we do many of the cleans and regular spring cleans on the property to keep it in good order. We sometimes will even get to meet you if we do the clean before you arrive.

We endeavour to give our guests that personal touch and care to ensure that you have the best possible holiday experience. We are contactable and available to provide you with assistance for the whole duration of your stay. Eclectic Paradise is our preferred holiday destination, and are continually adding to and improving the facilities on offer. Guests will have full use of the entire property including outdoor areas and gardens.

We have owned this property, one of the first properties to be built in Bambara street since June 1999. It has been updated sympathetically ,maintaining many of its original 1960's decore and features, with a contemporary twist. Ceiling and wall fans have been installed throughout the house for cool comfort. If you want to stay in a clean and well presented roomy authentic rustic older style 1960's beach house with many of the original features of that era in a fantastic eastern beachside location, then our property will fit the bill. There is great separation between each level making it the perfect get away for two families.

We have native Australian wildlife visiting our property on a regular basis including a large variety of birds, goannas, kangaroos and wallabies, koalas, possums, bandicoots, echidnas, lizards, butterflies and more. The golden wallaby, endemic to straddie occasionally visits, look out for them.

Straddie is a pristine wilderness and there is plenty of wildlife you will have a good chance of seeing in or near our house such a kangaroos, koalas, plovers, curlews, kookaburas and many different types of honeyeaters. In the ocean, whales, dolphins, turtles, stingrays, sharks, manta rays and many different types of fish and coral. The snorkelling is good as the water is so clear. Being one of Queensland's premier holiday locations, Straddie can become busy with holiday makers during school holiday periods. There are other holiday homes located in Bambara street. However Bambara street is a small street, it has little road traffic even during busy holiday periods.

The property is a large four bedroom two level renovated original Straddie beach house situated in a perfect central location on the ocean side of the main road in quiet leafy Bambara street. The property is within comfortable walking distance to all major beaches, headland walks, whale watching platforms, shops and eateries without having to cross any busy main roads.

The property is fully screened and has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms+powder room, 2 kitchens and 2 separate large all weather outdoor living areas, sleeps up to 8 people and pet friendly. Perfectly suited for two families wishing to holiday together. The property can accommodate 8 people in comfort with space for all without having to trip over each other. We supply linen and towels, they will be placed on the beds, if they are not on the beds, Linen and bath towels are stored in a cupboard located in the laundry, so help yourself. It is up to the guest to make their own beds. We prove bath towels and bath mats but not beach towels, please bring your own beach towels.

Point Lookout, Queensland, Australië

Straddie is truly unique with water that is as clear a glass and over 96% of the island is still in it's natural state with abundant wildlife. Yet it is only 50km from the centre of Australia's third largest city. Straddie has numerous natural attractions including:

1. Main Beach - Open Beach, good surfing when weather is calm. South Gorge is a lovely protected narrow inlet that is ideal for swimming in calm conditions.
2. Cylinder Beach - Protected beach
3. Deadman's Beach - Protected Beach
4. Frenchman's Beach (Our closest Beach) - Good surf beach
5. Blue Lake - Clear freshwater swimming. 3km walk in from the road to reach the lake.
6. Brown Lake - The name does not do it justice, Clean freshwater swimming with water lightly coloured with tea tree tannins that give it a tea like look.
7. The Keyholes - Clean freshwater swimming only accessible by walking as the miners have closed the road (behind the Main Beach sand dunes)
8. Amity Point for an excellent fishing option.
9. Home Beach - Protected Beach
10. Flinder's Beach - Open Beach
11. Drive 40km to Jumpinpin, only for the 4wd enthusiast. En-route there are superb fishing options, accessible from Main beach.
12. Scuba Diving at Flat rock, Shag Rock and Manta Bombie for spectacular dives with sharks, manta rays and spectacular underwater scenery. See Manta Lodge and Scuba for more information.
13. Headland and Gorge Walks. Walk high along the ridge all the way from Deadmans Beach all the way to Main beach via the Gorge Walk. Approximate total length is 5km. Our house is 30m from the walk on the section overlooking Frenchman's Beach. You can easily take a longer walk by continuing from Deadman's Beach through to Adder Rock and Flinders Beach in the west and/or continuing the walk south along Main Beach.
14. When the sea is dead calm and it's safe, snorkelling along the rock wall at south gorge is fabulous - for experienced swimmers and free divers only. It is important to note that at times there can be a strong rip current running along the wall seaward, so please always check the sea conditions are safe before entering the surf.

Lastly, there are a number of beaches on straddie that are unpatrolled and you swim there at your own risk. Bear this in mind before you enter the water and ensure you only swim in these areas if you are an experienced and strong surf swimmer. It is you who are responsible for your own safety. If in doubt do not enter the water. People have drown on some of our unpatrolled beaches. Take particular care at Frenchmans beach.

There are plenty of choice swimming, surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving options at straddie .

I am an active 57 year old male who is a keen swimmer, lifesaver and surfer. My wife Lenore and I have been living on the Sunshine Coast for 8 years. Prevoiusly we used to live in brisbane, when we purchased a holiday home at north stradbroke island. We still holiday at our straddie home on a regular basis. We have lived in many parts of Australia and traveled extensively through Europe, North America and Asia. I have a diverse background in IT and Marine Biology, hence my love of the Ocean. wr still travel extensively on our own. We like to immerse ourselves into the local culture and get off the beaten track. I have developed a love of Indian and Italian food from my travels. I have traveled as a back packer in my youth and later in a bit more comfort. I like to live life to the full and enjoy the company of others. I am easy going and relaxed and I live life to the full. We have stayed in a wide variety of accommodation and over this time, we have developed a good feel for what works. We will make the best efforts to make your stay with us enjoyable.
