Idyllic Beachfront resort in picturesque North Queensland
BRISBANE, 29 September 2021 – JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group has been exclusively appointed to manage the sale of Eco Village, Mission Beach in Tropical North Queensland with the property to be sold by Private Treaty with an asking price of just $3.25 million.
The iconic bungalow-style resort caters to families, holiday travellers and has held many weddings in the tropical setting over the years. Accommodation is provided for up to 74 guests with a range of bungalows and a couples retreat with facilities including a reception, function facility with liquor license and commercial kitchen complemented by a resort style swimming pool.
Located at the intersection of Bingil Bay Road and Clump Point Road in tropical Mission Beach, the freehold resort sits on a single title of land totalling 9,080 square metres. The site provides 118 metres frontage to a beachfront reserve with direct beach access to guests.
The property is being offered for the first time since it was constructed in 1990 and is a fully operational and profitable resort providing affordable accommodation for families and holiday makers.
Eco Village Mission Beach is currently operated under a management team with vacant possession available and an option for transition management as the new incoming buyers take over.
Set in unspoiled rainforest, overlooking Dunk Island and only metres to Mission Beach’s iconic golden stretch of coastline, the resort is exclusively located where World Heritage rainforest fronts the Great Barrier Reef. The unique Clump Point coastal basalt formations, rock pools and their ecosystems are unique to the Wet Tropics and the traditional custodians. These features provide a significant opportunity to create environmentally, and culturally unique holiday experiences found nowhere else in the world.
The resort currently offers 17 bungalows and a couples retreat with additional cleared and accessible land that could accommodate further development. The additional land has previously held a Development Approval and would suit more bungalows or glamping style rooms that could be constructed cost effectively without considerable disruption to the existing resort.
Commenting on the opportunity, Gareth Closter, Senior Vice President at JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group noted, “The current managers are doing an excellent job of operations at the resort as evidenced by the high TripAdvisor rating and comments”. He added “Eco Village has relied on repeat customers and direct bookings and could benefit from more pro-active management to attract more weddings/functions and contracts with tour operators etc. This opportunity offers huge potential with the completely unique setting it enjoys” he said. “It truly is a lot of real estate for the price!” Mr Closter commented.
