Our beach house accommodation is a two-storeyed loft house with plenty of room, very spacious and airy. It is built in the style of the American Cape Cod home with dormer windows protruding from the roof line and exposed beams adding to its character. Facing north, south there are always breezes blowing through cooling the bedrooms to a comfortable condition. Ceiling fans are also provided in all rooms including bedrooms.
Large, wide verandahs on the eastern and the whole length of the northern end make it ideal for that relaxing glass of wine or dinner on the deck. The verandahs are also a perfect place to rest surfboards, boogy boards and fishing rods. Added to this is a sun deck off the main bedroom for sun tanning, relaxing and listening to the waves breaking on the beach. The interior of our house is attractive and modern with polished, blackbutt flooring and an open-plan downstairs. With three bedrooms upstairs and one down, there is plenty of room for one or two families. In fact our house can accommodate up to 8 or 9 people. Lots of our visitors say they bring extended family e.g. grandparents or meet up with friends / family coming from central or north Queensland for reunions. Holiday-makers will need to bring linen and towels. Everything else is provided, including pillows, blankets, bath mats and tea towels.
Seachange Loft is fully self-contained with all the modern conveniences to make your stay a comfortable one. There are two refrigerators to cope with demand when two families stay over. One is a large 420 litre LG in the kitchen and the other is a 250 litre LG in the laundry. Both have freezers. There is a stove, microwave, washing machine, dryer, two colour televisions, DVD and AUSTAR with movies and the Fox Sports channels. Fancy watching a few movies commercial free? Well the Movie channels enable you access to the latest and best. Fox Sports channels give you the option of viewing your favourite football team live, including NRL, AFL and Soccer. And of course there’s Nickelodeon for the kids to keep them occupied. Also provided are all kitchen appliances, utensils, iron, ironing-board, heater, and extra pedestal fans.
Two bathrooms, one up, one down make it the ideal retreat for families. A small bath for children is an added extra in the downstairs bathroom. Two very comfortable Queen beds ensure a good night’s sleep. There is one in the main bedroom upstairs and another downstairs. Other beds are 5 single beds, two in bedroom 2 and 3 in the middle bed room. All bedrooms are large with an uncluttered feel about them. In fact the main bedroom is 32 m2 with enough room to get lost in. There is usually space for different family members to do their thing, either reading a book, watching TV or playing cards or board games. Young adults like to gather around the island bench in the kitchen for drinks and nibblies and party on the verandahs.
A wood-fired barbeque is located in the backyard with own floodlight and power. Most families will enjoy the experience of sitting around a fire sharing food, sipping a few drinks and toasting marshmallows. There is plenty of level parking for boats (many fishing groups book our house) or cars on the block around the back and space for the kids to have a game of touch footy or cricket. Located behind the house is Endeavour Plaza Shopping Centre. This is very handy to pick up the supplies at the IGA supermarket, butcher, deli or fish and chip shop. Also, there is a DVD/video shop with movies/games for the whole family. Mum will enjoy relaxing over a coffee at one of the nearby cafes, have a facial or arrange to have a made to measure swimsuit created at Buddies.
