What makes The Retreat Beach Houses so special? Well The Retreat is not an apartment complex but a very low density development offering spacious, private, 2 storey beach houses with 2 north east facing balconies, nestled in the dunes and native reserve with ocean and bush views and direct beach access, all designed to offer a truly relaxing beach holiday experience. Put your feet up. Listen to the honeyeaters in the Banksia and Melaleucas and the surf murmuring on the sand. Architect Geoffrey Pie designed The Retreat’s beach houses with the passion that can only come from close acquaintance. Listen to him describe the place he designed and loves:
Forget glitz and glamour, hustle and bustle. At Peregian Beach, you’ll really discover what beachside holidays are all about. The Noosa glitter is only ten minutes away and yet the beach is semi-deserted. Life at ‘Perij’ means kids on bicycles to the shops, a couple of beers at the surf club, teenagers in the skate bowl, Sunday morning markets and cricket on the beach, being woken in the morning by the screech of black cockatoos, hide and seek in the sand hills, and fresh fish for breakfast. Retreating to a beach house needs to be something special – a contrast to life in the city. The aim is to reduce long term tiredness, and these houses are designed to do just that.

Your beach house at The Retreat is designed for comfort and relaxation. Bedrooms are located downstairs, with good privacy and ventilation (Life goes on above, and at least two sleeps a day are mandatory, Geoffrey Pie says.) Upstairs the very spacious living areas benefit from cooling breezes and offer views towards the sea and native reserve. Outdoors, sheltering canvas sails echo the broad sweep of dunes and bushland. You’ve earned a break, come and discover the true beach house spirit… take your next holiday at The Retreat. To book, or for more information, call owner/ managers Dan or Nora on 07 5448192.
