  • We are 4 adults wanting to book the two bedroom house for the period 19/3/20 to 22/3/20(check out). Is the two bedroom house available then? I note that both bedrooms have large double beds - is it possible to have 4 single beds? Thank you Ray

    Hi Ray, Many thanks for your inquiry. We do have availability on these dates in one of our two VILLAS (2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Self-Contained Unit). In this unit we have a master suite with a King Bed and ensuite, the second room is fitted with a King Bed which can be split into two King Singles and we can also supply a Trundle which can be set up in the Lounge area comfortably sleeping 4 guests.

  • I note the Booking.com confirmation states "non refundable' but the Host Information staes there is a 25% deposit refundable up to 48 hours before, which is correct please? peter

    Hi Peter, It is non-refundable if you pay in full via the Booking.com site - its their policy, however if you pay the 25% deposit directly to Island Villas then our cancellation policy applies. Kind regards Annie

Known locally as T.I. Thursday Island is a natural show case for the region’s significant local maritime, military and pearling history. To visit this far flung government outpost is to uncover a town shaped by its cultural heritage and strategic location as it sits on the precipice of an international shipping channel, shares an international border with Papua New Guinea and offers safe harbour and resupply for vessels crossing the 40,000 sq km expanse that is Torres Strait. The minute you step ashore here you are instantly transported to another world, an island where traditional languages have been preserved and cultural values sit alongside a relaxed tropical island lifestyle that blends effortlessly within a modern township. With a population of approximately 3000, Thursday Island is the main township and port for Torres Strait. Today Thursday Island has sprung to life in its own right as the centre for governance, commerce and keeping place for the island’s cultural heritage.
