Decorated in a beachy chic style, air-conditioned throughout, a fully equipped kitchen, internet via the NBN and everything you would expect to enjoy your stay. Outside features a large deck area with BBQ, hammocks, swimming pool, kayaks, and parking for cars & a boat.

The Space:

The Sandpit is absolute beachfront on a quiet, no-through street. The main bedroom has ocean views and opens directly onto the deck. Hammocks are hanging between beams on the deck and there are a number of outdoor entertainments such as the pool, outdoor "mud" kitchen, two kayaks, tyre swing and, of course, the beach. Other inclusions are a Weber Family Q, UE Megaboom portable speaker for music anywhere, Nespresso coffee pod machine with pods supplied, rumpus room with second television and kids toys and activities.

Two high chairs are also provided. A sandy path leads from the backyard to the beach.

Guest access:

You will have exclusive use and access to the whole property inside and out.

Interaction with guests:

The Sandpit is fully self-contained and there will be no interaction with the owners, unless required. However we do live in the area and will interact if we receive any noise/partying complaints from our neighbours.


STRICTLY NO PARTYING! This house is in a quiet neighbourhood and we are friends with all our neighbours.This is a FAMILY home, NOT A PARTY HOME.

Please respectfully consider the neighbours, particularly noise levels in the evening. As such, parties are not allowed at this property.

One of our favorite activities is to enjoy a small fire on the beach in the late afternoon or evening when the weather/wind permits. Please ensure all fires are completely put out before leaving the beach.

About Taleah Derrick

We are a family of 8; Mum, Dad, 5 girls and 1 boy. For the past 12 years this house has been our family home and we feel so lucky to be able to offer our beachfront living experience with our guests, providing them an opportunity of absolute beachfront living; the beach is our backyard! We enjoy morning coffee on the beach, swimming in the sea after lunch, and finishing the day off with a sunset bonfire roasting marshmallows.

Why Taleah Derrick chose Wongaling Beach

We love the beach and everything this laid back lifestyle has to offer! Our family home is perfect for families wishing to get away and relax in tranquillity. Our home is spacious for a family/s with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The beautiful beaches and rain forest surrounding us has plenty to offer in terms of both things-to-do and relaxation.

What makes this house unique

There is limited spacious homes available for guests to book which are located on the absolute beach front. Walking straight out of the back door will take you right to the beach via a short, sandy beach path. Whether you're sitting on the deck drinking cocktails, in the lounge-room watching Foxtel, or in the kitchen prepping lunch, you will have ocean views.

A day trip to Dunk Island and surrounding islands is a must do (weather permitting)! Have a fish at Clump Point Jetty, take a sunset stroll along the beach and make a bonfire to toast some marshmallows. A trip to the Reef is a highlight if you are a first-timer visiting FNQ.
