Buy your own bit of private beach for less than $500,000.
Buyers can own a private beach on the Gold Coast from just $460,000, with a handful of absolute beachfront homesites now available at South Stradbroke Island Waters.
Developer QM Properties has nine beachfront and beachside lots, starting from $270,000, available on the Island, which is just 15 minutes from Runaway Bay by private boat or 30 minutes from Hope Island by ferry.
There is also one architecturally designed home on offer for those who want to start enjoying island escapes straight away, priced at $895,000.
QM Properties General Sales Manager Damien Ross says South Stradbroke Island Waters has been a haven for Gold Coast and Brisbane locals looking to build a coastal holiday home they can easily visit on weekends.
“There’s a growing number of locals who are opting to build a holiday home here at South Stradbroke Island so they can have regular family stay-cations, instead of waiting for an annual holiday overseas,” he said. “There’s nowhere on the mainland where you can have-
-your own private beach and immediate deep water access, so people are looking offshore to get these lifestyle benefits at a much more affordable price.
“South Stradbroke is easily accessible from the northern Gold Coast. Our beachfront lots have pontoons to moor private boats and all buyers are allowed private vehicle access to explore the natural bushland that makes up 90 per cent of the Island.”
Mr Ross says while the community is in a remote and private location, buyers can access facilities at the nearby Couran Cove Resort and all homesites have been completed to the same standard as those on the mainland.
“Couran Cove has a great range of resort style amenities, including pools, a restaurant, day spa and bike tracks which are all available to residents of South Stradbroke Island Waters,” he said.
“All of our homesites, which range up to 944sqm, are equipped with full pressure reticulated water as well as sewerage, so they are ready to build on immediately, with a good mix of beachfront and beachside lots available.”
