Magnetic Island is fortunate to have a wide variety of holiday house accommodations available for rental. In fact, it has the most holiday home rental options in the Barrier Reef islands, at a variety of price points. Renting a holiday house can actually save you money, as when renting a holiday home (house or apartment), you pay one amount for the entire accommodation. When divided by the number of people in your group, the cost is usually very appealing per person. Also you will save further by having your own kitchen and laundry available in the house. Holiday houses enjoy some of the best locations, often moments from the beach. For a stay in an island paradise, this is truly a bargain!
