The coast’s newest Flotel takes houseboat holidaying to the next level
Sun-dappled days spent fishing, swimming and relaxing on the river – a houseboat holiday can only be described as pure bliss. If you’re keen to hit the high seas but you’re anchored to dry land due to a lack of a vessel or boat license, then fret not, as a solution has sailed into our hot little hands. Introducing Drift Flotel, the Gold Coast’s new levelled up houseboat holiday experience.
It’s time to don your captain’s hat and stretch those sea legs – the coast’s new houseboat holiday experience, Drift Flotel, is helping us to go nautical. The newly refurbished overwater accommodation is three stories of pure luxury, featuring everything you would expect from a fully self-contained home. With enough room to host the whole gang, this lavish vessel boasts two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, lounge and dining spaces, balconies, a walk-around deck and a rooftop terrace. It can comfortably accommodate six people overnight or up to 12 people during the day, so we suggest making a list of your favourite friends now.
Setting Drift Flotel apart from other houseboats on the coast is that guests don’t have to worry about operating the vessel, so no deso driver is required! You will arrive to the accommodation via a 40-minute cruise on a 32-foot flybridge cruiser, which departs from Horizon Shores Marina at Steiglitz near Jacobs Well and breezes through the Southern Moreton Bay Islands National Park. When you arrive, you’ll find the Flotel anchored in a picturesque location featuring panoramic water and national park views. Plus, if you need any more supplies or you feel like going on a cheeky cruise around the islands, your host will always be close by.
