The Retreat Beach Houses are in a quiet and reasonably upscale end of the Sunshine Coast, quite close to Noosa, so you have best of both worlds in terms of locations. And Peregian Beach is lovely, flat and wide, and not crowded at all. The beach houses are all identical in structure and clustered in a strip adjoining the beach... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such an expansive review. Thank you for the lovely words about the living area - it is stunning! We agree that we are certainly spoilt in terms or location! We do also caution potential guests to consider their own holiday and not rely heavily on the ideas of others. We would be... More

Spacious, well-appointed accommodation, simply furnished as befitting a beach location, nestled in attractive landscaped planting and native bush with views over sand-dunes to a beautiful beach and the ocean. Offers privacy, peace and quiet but with quick access (10 to 15 minute drive) to the relative bustle of Noosa and all its amenities and to the lovely walks in the... More

Our 4-night stay at The Retreat is coming all too quickly to a close! As a family of five (over three generations), we have shared s three-bedroom villa, which has served our purposes well. The Retreat has been a great base from which we've explored the area. Coolum is about 10 minutes to the south, Noosa about the same to... More

Thank you! The bush turkeys certainly do surprise guests at times. The wallabies near the beach tracks can also take you by surprise as they don't move til you are quiet close and they blend in with the surrounding bush! So glad you saw the whales - they are truly magnificent creatures. We look forward to seeing you again. Regards,... More

This was our first time to The Retreat Beach Houses and it certainly won't be our last. We had such a wonderful relaxing holiday with our family.

Great for families with older children. the external stairs to the upstairs living space means alot of up and down, hard work with toddlers and babies though many families were there doing it. Difficult for those with mobility issues. Impossible for wheelchairs or walkers. Not all houses get a view of the beach. Ours had a glimpse from the upstairs... More

Our family of five stayed for a week and had a great time. The managers were very friendly and really looked after us. The tennis court and pool are great. They provided a lot for free - boogie boards, tennis racquets and balls, pool noodles, beach towels, dvds, games, etc. The houses are really well laid out, plenty of space,... More

We regularly visit Peregian to see relatives when visiting Queensland and the Retreat is our favourite spot. Nestled in the bush yet right on the beach these self catering bungalows are the perfect place to switch off for a few days. Each bungalow is furnished slightly differently but most have the same layout with bedrooms (with air conditioning), bathroom and... More

Thank you. Wow - we think the track to the beach is pretty special also - some children once described it as a "butterfly wonderland!" All the beach houses now have well equipped standardised kitchens, beautiful bathroom renovations and have a small view of the ocean through the bushland on the sand dune in which they are nestled.

Thank you! The accommodation in our resort is 2 storey, freestanding, 3 bedroom beach houses: however during our low season we are able to lock off bedrooms to make it a little less expensive for smaller families travelling in the off-season. This then gives couples or single guests the whole house with a full kitchen, living, dining area and 2... More

Friendly and efficient checkin, and a pleasant surprise when everything in the cabin was as promised. The very spacious living area and view deck are completely separate from the sleeping areas, allowing daytime views of the ocean but peaceful sleeping atmosphere downstairs. 2 minute walk through the forest to the beach creates a feeling of "going to the beach" and...
