  • Description


    My name is VJ Orion, & I am Natural Therapist, practice Remedial, Swedish Massage and Yoga, . I live on Magnetic Island, North Queensland, next to Townsville. I recently move from Nelly Bay to Arcadia, which is the middle of the Island and has 2 beaches. Alma bay, and Geoffrey Bay. Both are a walking distance from my Townhouse. I AM LOOKING FOR ONE PERSON ONLY, You must be healthy, easy going, perhaps more MATURE & with good sense of humour. Having a current travel insurance, and valid Australian Visa. Before you will contact me, make sure, that you are close to North QLD , and not somewhere else, like another continent, please. It is a
    very important, to plan your stay, which is a minimum 5 days, but it could be extended, if you show, that you are serious, and willing to HELP, and to stay to discover the Island ,
    in way as I know, for last 15 years. This is the real thing, something beyond your imagination. So
    the choice is your, not mine, because I am just the HOST. Wish you all the best , from Magnetic
    Island, from VJ ORION & GOOD HEALTH TO YOU All

  • Accommodation


    My new townhouse has only 2 bedrooms upstairs.Grand floor has kitchen, and second toilet. There is nice relaxing table next to small swimming pool. Living room has a new 40" TV with sound system, and DVD, There is a very comfortable Italian leather settee to relax, to listen music or to watch the TV. You are welcome to bring your DVD to watch, if you wish so. The
    time of your stay you will become, something like house mate. So is more like home stay. THERE IS NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE, INCLUDED THE PROPERTY, TOO. because there are some native
    animals all the time on my garden, and they do not smoke, so show some respect, please. There is
    one more thing, I want to say, do not plan any extra activity outside the stay, to spent time
    with another company, like scuba diving, because I do not want to be responsible for you, if any
    accident, or injury will occur during outside my house, please. Do not ask me can I help you, if you
    on your mobile phone, it will not work with me. Just remember you come here to HELP & LEARN, if you want to have a lot of fun & a new experience. Magnetic Island is not about a face book, it is
    about the oldest Aboriginal Spirit, which You must feel, only when you will switch off your phone.
