Alby's Beach House at Yorkeys Knob was a pleasant surprise. Beyond the wooden gate was a gem--a tastefully newly remodeled and amenities-rich home that proved the perfect setting for our stay.
Clean and bright, with spacious nicely appointed rooms, the home felt very much like a private getaway. The pool and outdoor entertaining areas--there were two different places to dine al fresco!--gave us ample opportunity to enjoy the tropical North Queensland region's sunny, balmy days and pleasant evenings. The jetted tub in the master bedroom suite was a delight, a retreat within a retreat!
It's just a short stroll to the beach, and what a beach! Unspoiled, accessible and entertaining on windy days, when the kite-surfers gather in large numbers and put on quite a show. For open-water swimmers like me, the beach was a dream, as the entry was easy and the water generally calm.
The nearby town center of Yorkeys Knob offers most conveniences and decent basic grocery... Plus
