Holiday Rental House
[ This Description left by a friend that has 'lived' at west point for 6 months, is better than any I could come up with :) Thanks Dan. ] Paco's hut has been a delight to be in for our extended stay! The house is clean and comfortable with spacious rooms and large louvered windows to let the ocean breeze blow through. Laying in bed at night with the surf just a few meters away and the lights of Townsville across the bay is very peaceful. Paco , and his parents made us very welcome and did all they could to ensure a great stay, made us feel as friends rather than renters. A car is a good idea to access Paco's as it is 4 miles [ actually it is closer to five and that is 8 Kilometers in metric ] from town on a dirt road, but I had no problem catching rides from very friendly people coming ou...[ This Description left by a friend that has 'lived' at west point for 6 months, is better than any I could come up with :) Thanks Dan. ] Paco's hut has been a delight to be in for our extended stay!

A car is a good idea to access Paco's as it is 4 miles [ actually it is closer to five and that is 8 Kilometers in metric ] from town on a dirt road, but I had no problem catching rides from very friendly people coming out to do the excellent fishing and watch the beautiful sunsets. A very quiet place, very little cars after sunset, no streetlights, just loads of stars, and most of the neighbors are weekenders, not very many people around. The solar power for us was adequate, just had to go with the suns flow, and Paco has a gas [ petrol that is for us Ozzies ] generator backup that was easy to operate. Water catchement cisterns [ water tanks ] and shower worked good. Our first night had cute possums and Wallaby's on the deck and in the morning had many white Cockatoos and pretty Lorakeets join us for breakfast on the deck. Koala bears are also regular visitors in the eucalyptus trees outside the bedroom windows. (very cute but, warning, they can be noisy at night, along with the curlews...) I loved it so much there I didn't want to leave! The only thing that should be considered is that it IS the tropics in far NE Australia so there can be insects and other local species that share the island with you, the winter, spring and fall months are probably the best time to avoid this. I'll take the summer months Paco! :) I would and will be delighted to enjoy Paco's Hut and hospitality again.More
