I have stayed at the Retreat Beach Houses many times over the past decade, & it is still my favourite destination. Best beach holidays I have ever had - a mixture of the old fashioned beach holiday & all the modern conveniences we all expect today.
My favourite destination
Beachfront beach houses
Nestled in the dunes, the beach houses allow you to experience the wonderful sounds and smells of the beach, along with glimpses of the ocean through the bush, while providing shelter from the winds that can be overwhelming in some beachfront properties. We spent may happy hours on the deck. The house was immaculately clean, well appointed, extremely comfortable and with the louvres and extensive windows throughout, was light and airy. The house and the whole property have a truly relaxed ambience and you don't really need to leave. There is a lovely swimming pool kept at the perfect temperature, an extensive library of DVDs and games available for borrowing and lots of beach equipment too. I loved being able to walk barefooted out of the door, down a private track through the dune and be on the beach in minutes. You can then walk on the beach for many beautiful kilometres if you wish. Peregian Village, 20 minutes or so walk to the south, is delightful to explore. The outside hot and cold shower is a lovely touch after a beach swim. We had hired a car, which allowed us an easy drive to and from the airport and some afternoon trips to Noosa on a couple of occasions, but with a bus immediately outside the resort and the options of transfers and tours booked through the front office, it seems you could easily do without one. The managers are friendly, genuine and helpful and made us feel totally welcome and at ease. I hope we can return!
We booked out a beach house to hold our small Wedding reception a couple of weeks ago and couldn't have been happier with the location and houses. The houses had everything we needed and are located in such a beautiful area where the beach is just a short stroll through a private access path. We had such a lovely weekend and didn't want to leave. Nora was so helpful and went out of her way to ensure we had a great stay. We will definitely be visiting again in the near future!! We (including our families) had such a wonderful relaxing time while staying at your beach houses. I am so glad that we decided to have our Wedding reception there as it suited us perfectly and everyone enjoyed the spaciousness of our beachouse and balcony. We had a really special day and it helped that the house was perfect for what we needed it for. I loved that No 7 had plenty of seating spaces and the corner seats when you first walk in were a hit for our guests! Thanks for your wonderful hospitality, we really appreciated your advice and caring nature.
A little slice of heaven!
Couldn't have found a better spot for us to land for 4 days on our trip to Australia. Beautifully renovated, right on the beach with gorgeous sunrise views from the balcony. All the amenities that we could need (boogie boards, dvds, etc) - well stocked. Super friendly management. Just a walk or short drive down to the lovely village of Peregian Beach, and centrally located for exploring the Sunshine Coast (we took cooking lessons at Spirit House, surf lessons in Peregian, horseback riding in Noosa, and of course the market at Eumundi). Thanks for an amazing experience!
Perfect place to stay with a group!
I absolutely loved it. Perfect place to stay with a group/family. I recently stayed here with a swim camp & i can honestly say that it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. nice people, beautiful beach & excellent accommodation. Would love to come back & stay here again!
"BEST holiday place EVER"
"This was the BEST holiday place EVER" Christopher (5 yr old). Our whole family agrees. Great pool for the family - 7am - 9pm times suited our early risers. Perfect temperature. The house was very clean. We loved having the bedrooms downstairs and the TV room/kitchen/dining room upstairs. Ensuite - great! We loved the view from the balcony. The very short walk to the beach was great, even when we met a friendly lizard. Friendly and helpful managers! Loved the massage recommendation!! Great location to local restaurants, shops & skate park for the boys. It was great to be a distance from the busy Noosa area. Thank you - we'll be back.
We even saw whales from the deck!
We had an awesome stay at the Retreat. The property was very well presented. The deck upstairs was surround by trees, very private and had a great sea view. We even saw whales from the deck and it was a great place to read and relax in the sun. The free WIFI was a nice surprise. We loved the location and look forward to returning sometime in the future.
I would love to recommend the Retreat to anyone who wishes to stay in a beautiful, relaxed spot. We were a group of 12 adults staying in 2 side by side houses for my 60th birthday celebrations recently and we all absolutely loved the houses and the beach views. The easiness of walking down through a short, natural bush area to the unspoiled wide beach was perfect. We can highly recommend the Retreat and the the great 'family managers' who were very friendly and helpful. This is our second stay here and I am sure we will be back again!
What a wonderful spot!
Just wanted to say thanks for having us and making us feel welcome! What a wonderful spot - someone must have been looking out for us when I stumbled across the website! We will definitely return, would love to show my husband what I've been raving about since returning from a weekend away with my mum and sisters!
Well equipped houses in a great location with very friendly staff. We had a fantastic few days and look forward to returning again soon. Thanks
