Lagoon Hut is located toward the North East side of the island a stone throw from the waters edge. Views overlook the big lagoon and Coral Sea. An open plan handcrafted timber pole hut, raised above ground level so as to afford spectacular ocean views across the reef. Polished floors and glass doors, timber shutters open on all sides to allow a cool sea breeze.
Kwila Hut is an open plan, hand crafted timber house, shaded under a canopy of Coral with views to the sea. Featuring hand crafted benches and polished floors made from deep chocolate Daintree teak. Furnished with New Guinea artifacts from Roy’s past and timber shutters on all sides to allow a cool sea breeze. Ensuite bathroom. Sundeck with the view past the Coral Trees to the surrounding reef.
Beach Hut Barefoot, bleached and castaway, the Beach hut is an open plan, aesthetic drift wood accommodation. Situated right on the beach and some distance from the main complex, a boardwalk leads down to the open shower and bathroom standing amid a coconut forest.
Large canvas shutters open directly onto the beach where the sun sets over an open fireplace. Barefoot luxury for those who enjoy bird song and sunrise on your doorstep.
House Mawu was designed exclusively by Roy and is the largest and more luxurious of all the accommodation. The self contained villa is located on the hillside overlooking the big lagoon. It has two queen bedrooms, two starlit bathrooms, open plan kitchen lounge area with a stone fire place, library and loft with two single beds. The building is covered with a thatch roof and supported by a colossal drift wood center pole. It is the ultimate designer’s dream of island seclusion.
An unparalleled cuisine experience. We take great pride and exceptional care in our cuisine. Our seafood is caught on the day: herbs, fruit and vegetables picked from the orchard blend into inspirational organic meals. All meals are included in accommodation rates.
Some other activities both on the island and out on the boat include:
Personal Dingy Use (for licensed visitors)
Snorkeling & Spearfishing
To get to Haggerstone you must first fly to Cairns, North Queensland. From there we can organize two options:
Private Charter From Cairns
The two hour flight travels up the largely uninhabited mainland covered with virgin rainforest, over an aquamarine sea dotted with lime green reefs resembling giant lily pads.
We like the charter to depart Cairns in the early morning: If possible guests should reach Cairns the evening before. This will allow the plane to return with departing guests in time to reach afternoon flight connections. We can organize a later flight if the earlier connection cannot be met. We would appreciate that guests restrict luggage to 12 kgs per person. There is limited storage space on the small planes and guests are asked to pack in soft stowable bags.
Guests catch a pre-organised flight to Weipa with Qantas. From Weipa they board a private charter to Haggerstone’s air strip.
