Lifestyle Business,B& B Accommodation, Restaurant, Wildlife Sanctuary (Ref No: 60626)
Life style plus home/land and business, situated 90 minutes from the Whitsundays and 40 minutes from the coastal town of Bowen, this 25 acres of land has 5 buildings consisting of an 11 guest room Bed & Breakfast, A 14 bed bunk house, 2 b/r managers residence, 50 seat licensed restaurant (commercial kitchen, bar, games room) 6x12m swimming pool which happens to be in the shape of Australia, all rooms are fully airconed and tastefuly furnished with antiques and collectables as well as all plant and equipment to operate the business, the restaurant has a full commercial kitchen with an up to date food license plus a licensed bar (the liquor license covers the whole 25 acres) The accommodation license is for 34 cabins so there would be plenty of scope for expansion in the future.
The owners have been wildlife carers for years so the property is a sanctuary and has several large enclosures suitable for a wildlife release site, which is a huge attraction for visitors.
The business is popular for locals, tourists, companies and contractors working in relation to the mines as well as backpackers working in the area, they also cater for functions such as parties, work meetings, weddings etc.
The overheads for the business are minimal i.e. Land rates are $800p/a, total running costs are less that $60.000p/a with possible income @ 50% occupancy (B&B only) of over $300,000.
The owners operated the business successfully for 12 years then leased it out for 4 years in which time the restaurant and B&B were closed and the property used exclusively for backpackers, in the past year and a half the owners have been back at the helm in which time they have reinstated the restaurant and built 7 new bed and breakfast rooms and a new managers residence complete with a double spa bath, large master bedroom with built ins and flat screen Tv, lounge room, kitchenette and private verandah, the managers residence comes fully furnished as does the rest of the Resort.
This would make an excellent family business or could be run easily by 2 couples, the owners use backpacker staff that work for free accommodation, they are in the right postcode to sign off on their second year visa, which means they always have a couple of people to do the mundane chores and to help when busy, this a great way to keep the overheads down.
