Through the front door of 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point, is the edge of the rainforest and at the rear, the backyard turf shares grains of sand with the beach. The three-bedroom beach house is described as a “slice of paradise” by RE/MAX selling agent Daniel Arnott. “I didn’t even know this place existed – it’s one of Far North Queensland’s best-kept secrets,” he said.

But then when you’re back at this house it feels like you’re a million miles away from everything. “It’s a quiet neighbourhood, the beach is pristine and I saw some dolphins the last morning I was there. It’s probably a location not many have considered and not many have heard of.” Mr Arnott said when holiday-makers or visitors to the area did stumble across the property, they would begin making offers. “People have knocked on the door and said would you let us rent it out for the holidays. “It’s never been holiday let, but they’ve been offered $3000 a week.” 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point is listed with RE/MAX agent Daniel ArnottAnd their reasoning for the generous offers could be due to any number of features this tidy, renovated property packs.

It’s also got a separate living area as well, at the front of the property if you wanted to breakaway and just entertain.” He said the “very open” home enjoyed sea breezes as well as plenty of natural light to highlight the rare black bean timber floors. The large deck at 8 Elizabeth St, Flying Fish Point has endless beach views.However, he said, one of the true retreats in the home was the master bedroom. “They’re all good-sized bedrooms with plenty of natural light but you just get really beautiful views from the master bedroom.”Nearby is a school, a park and a licensed cafe all within walking distance, but a major drawcard is access to the reefs via the Flying Fish Point boat ramp, just one minute away. “The property has onsite parking for your boat,” Mr Arnott said. “It’s fully fenced and gated so if you did use it as a holiday home, you could keep all your toys secured onsite. We’ve fielded a lot of inquiry from Melbourne. People simply wanting a change and they’re wanting to move there. Others have wanted it as holiday house. “No price on it yet, the owner is seeking expressions of interest for now.”
Nigeria’s outgoing president Goodluck Jonathan Outgoing Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has said that his friends deserted him after he lost Nigeria’s elections in March.Goodluck was defeated in a close election by his opposition opponent Muhammadu Buhari ion the elections that were said to be closely contested and the first to be worn by an opposition candidate.Speaking on Sunday Goodluck said that some of his friends deserted him shortly after he conceded defeat to his rival General Muhammadu Buhari in the March election.Jonathan publicly conceded defeat to Buhari on March 31, a decision which was commended by local and foreign commentators and doused tension in the country. “Some hard decisions have their own costs.According to a report by AFP, Goodluck said , ”No doubt about that. It is a very costly decision but I must be very ready to pay for it,” Jonathan said during a farewell church service in Abuja.Jonathan’s public admission of defeat in the nail-biting election came more than six hours after he rang Buhari to concede, earning him widespread praise for statesmanship.“If you take certain decisions, you should know that people close to you will even abandon you at some point.I tell people that more of my so-called friends will disappear.”Many party faithful and erstwhile loyalists of Jonathan have either crossed over to Buhari’s All Progressives Congress or made harsh statements against Jonathan’s party or its leaders.Jonathan said he was not surprised by the desertions or statements by his former loyalists, adding that former South African president Frederik de Klerk faced a similar situation when he decided to abolish minority rule in that country.Jonathan said that de Klerk’s marriage to his wife, Marike, broke down after he took that decision. “But that is the only decision that made South Africa to still be a global player.If by this time we still have minority rule in South Africa, nobody would have been talking about South Africa in the present generation,” he said. He said that ministers who served under him should brace themselves for “persecution” following his loss and his decision to concede defeat.Buhari, a former military leader, is scheduled to be sworn into office on May 29th.
