During our stay at Mission Beach, we had the good fortune of being able to stay at the wonderful Windjana house, right on the oceanfront. The house is owned by some family friends of Jarv's, and has been featured in Vogue and Australia Style magazines (eeee!). They were kind enough to offer it to us, as they now live in New Zealand and the property was currently unoccupied.
Well, the house lived up to its promise; it is big, bright, beautiful - the living room opens up grandly with floor to ceiling windows all along, and the massive balcony is the perfect place for a sunset dinner and glass of wine, watching the sun go down over Dunk Island. On the morning we left, I was staring folornly out to sea one last time and saw FINS! Dolphins or small whales, I'm not sure, but it was a pretty awe inspiring moment.
