The township of Beachmere, tucked away in the northern section of Moreton Bay, is a quiet yet pleasant hideaway.

Its location just above Deception Bay, where the mouth of the Caboolture River flows into the bay, makes it an ideal spot for boating and fishing. Public boat ramps can be accessed either on the river or on the bay itself. For those without their own, boats are also available for hire in Beachmere.

Kids will enjoy watching millions of tiny soldier crabs scuttling along the mud flats at low tide. There is a skate park located in Beachmere too, where children can ride bikes or skate. Further inland on the Caboolture River is a marina and chandlery.


Unit RR1 in Rippas Retreat is the larger unit, with a two-way ensuite, 2 bedrooms, and is more spacious making it very comfortable for larger families. It is self-contained and has its own roadway entrance via Rogers Street. There are two Queen Beds (bedrooms 1 and 2) and a Queen Sofa Bed in the lounge.

The pricing is firm, however, for weekend or 2 night stays please supply your own linen/towels. If you cannot provide your linen/towels a small fee will apply per bed.

At the back there is a patio leading into a fenced court yard making it safe for children and pets. There is a 3m wide front verandah with glass doors and security screens along the sea breeze side. The whole acre of ground is fenced with lockable gates, and surrounded by lots of gardens and trees.

There is a shade cloth car park adjoining the front verandah.

There is plenty of room to park your boat or caravan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Totally enjoyed our stay with our little Zena We totally enjoyed our stay with our little Jack Russell Zen, wish we could of sty longer and would stay again.. On the downside; the little court yard was off the ground on one side (left side of unit) so Zena could walk straight out and did so.... And the TV was playing up...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This unit was very well set out with a well fenced yard, suitable for medium size dogs. The unit was exceptionally clean, nice white tiles throughout. Nice touch was having beds made up for us, handwash soap & linen provided.We had a really pleasant stay, only hampered by the heavy rains, which caused some flooding around the house. But we would certainly recommend this property to someone who wanted a quiet get away with their dogs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a pleasant environment and very peaceful. We found that everything you need was catered for, right down to having your bed made on arrivial. The unit was clean right through out but I would just like to ask that other people that use these "pet friendly" accommodation to consider everyone else and REMOVE your pets poos etc etc. We travel with our pets and appreciate having somewhere to stay and we do not want that door closed because you are too lazy to pick it up!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Myself, My sister & my partner stayed at Rippas Retreat for the weekend. The place was nice and clean, everything was so easy to find and it was the perfect size. I would definately recommend Rippas Retreat to anyone who would like time away from everything and go out to a beautiful suburb of Beachmere to relax and unwind. Rippas will definately be on the top of my list when looking to somewhere to stay again.
