Victor Island in the Whitsundays is on the market for $3.5 million.

Vendors Paul Sullivan and wife Megan purchased the island two years ago and have since renovated.

It features a four-bedroom beach cottage on three hectares facing the Coral Sea

Wayne Holmes, Savills Residential lead agent said the island, situated about 50km south of Hamilton Island, said the asking price includes all furniture, equipment, the boat, tractor and more.

"The new owners could easily get DA approval for another house on the island, which would be ideal for family and friends, or to rent out as a holiday home, meaning it could also generate more income alongside the B&B,” he said.

Vendors Paul Sullivan said when he purchased the property it looked like it was stuck in the ‘80s even though it was built in 1996,” he said.

“It was so dated. We completely renovated the whole island and had a fantastic cremation of the old furniture.

“We gutted the place inside and out – adding a new kitchen, new flooring, repainted, new furniture and we also replaced the deck.

“Everything had to be shipped over by barge.” 

“There are many beautiful islands in the Whitsunday and Coral Coast areas of Queensland but what sets Victor Island apart is that you can come ashore and literally drop your bags and start enjoying the lifestyle from that moment onwards.

“There are no renovations or repairs to be done. There is no infrastructure to create and there is no equipment or furnishings to buy. All that work has been done and virtually all of the equipment on the island is still under warranty.

“One of the key features that sets our island apart from others in the area is that it is all ours … we don’t share it with anybody,” Mr Sullivan said.

“Another is its location. It’s not in the middle of nowhere. A lot of others in the Whitsundays are isolated and you can only get there by a very long boat trip or flights. But Victor Island is less than two kilometres from the mainland and you can get there from a number of boat ramps including Grasstree Beach, Campwin Beach and Hay Point.

“It’s so peaceful here. If you’ve had one of those months, or years even, you can come here and it just melts away. And yet you still have all the comforts of home – you won’t miss the next episode of Game of Thrones.”

“Sitting on the private white sandy beach you can see whales and dolphins and turtles, which sometimes nest on the beach. And I actually saw a seal once.

“Some of the best fishing in Queensland can be had here including red emperor and barramundi, and oysters grow wild on the rocks so you can go down there and chisel them off and throw them on the camp fire for dinner.”

Renovations included the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with king and queen ensembles, with unique retractable blade ceiling fans in the bedrooms and airconditioning to the master. 

It includes a fully self-contained and completely renovated caretaker’s cottage, with a new kitchen and bathroom.
