Families seeking the ultimate accommodation for a restful and relaxing holiday need look no further than The Retreat Beach Houses at Peregian Beach, Noosa on the Queensland coast of Australia. With beachfront acreage this unique resort is suitable for families of all ages. The lagoon style pool is a favourite with young families, as the “no step” easy entry is confidence boosting for those in the learn to swim stage. Each house has champagne flutes that can be used poolside! Two large hooded, gas BBQs are located in the pool area, so parents can cook, sip champagne and relax on the poolside sun lounges! The resort has pool noodles, boogie boards, balls, beach cricket sets, sand toys and beach towels for use free of charge, thus reducing the lugging of luggage! The direct access to an almost deserted beach is the biggest drawcard. One family described the beach track as walking through a “butterfly forest”! The coastline is a nesting area for sea turtles; one guest described her awe, returning from an enjoyable sunset walk along the beach when she was met by hundreds of tiny turtles making the gruelling trek from the dune to the ocean just beside The Retreats beach track, as a “magic moment in time”. For families firm on fitness, the beach has all the benefits for excellent exercise regimes – walking, running, Yoga, Chi Gong, Pilates, beach volleyball, cricket and the list goes on. The resorts full-sized tennis court is popular with the teenagers for fun and serious tennis, or to shoot some hoops in the basketball net. The reception has basketballs, tennis balls and racquets for use free of charge. Fishing fanatics often catch good Dart and Whiting in the gutters that form regularly out the front! For bike enthusiasts, and those that love the outdoors, The Retreat Beach Houses have a selection of mountain, road, children’s pushbikes and attachments for hire and are situated right on the coastal Noosa to Caloundra bike trail. When the day is done and energy reduced, guests can enjoy the in house Foxtele channels, choose a DVD from an extensive collection at the office or access complimentary WiFi. Finally, the sound of the ocean waves crashing on the shore provides a constant relaxation soundtrack and is the perfect background for the perfect nights’ sleep!
