Description

ABSOLUTE BEACHFRONT house - no road between house and beach
Is your dream holiday relaxing on a large beachfront deck with magnificent sea views whilst sipping a glass of champagne as you watch boats sail by?
Or is it snoozing in a sun-lounge under coconut trees by the Coral Sea?
if the answer is yes, then Sandcastle Retreat is your dream come true.
Charmingly located on an island (connected to the mainland by a bridge) surrounded by Redden Island Nature Reserve and the Coral Sea. This is an ideal place to visit for interstate and overseas guests.
Wander along the beach collecting shells, fish from the beach or go for a leisurely bush walk. Meet the native wildlife of Redden Island - wallabies, birds, butterflies and Bullee. Bullee is our resident island steer- a local legend - just ask!
As the sun rises you will often see dolphins and pelicans offshore. Watch the children as they play on the wide white sandy beach with the beach toys. Take a dip in the swimming pool surrounded by tropical gardens. Enjoy a cocktail on the deck as the sunsets over the Coral Sea.You will fall asleep to the sound of the lapping waves.

Chill out in luxury on Redden Island

Sandcastle Retreat is newly renovated to the highest specifications.
The decor is contemporary in style with an eclectic mix of modern designer and antique furnishings. A Pierre Paulin Ribbon Chair sits, beside a Gail Mabo painting, in front of an antique Indian silk rug!
The fully equipped, open-plan kitchen and living areas extend seamlessly to the outside deck and BBQ area through glass bi fold doors. The central kitchen includes a huge island bench facilitating group entertaining activities with sea views!
There are numerous games, books, CDs and DVDs to facilitate your leisure activities. The swimming pool is privately situated amid the tropical gardens. There are 3 state-of-the-art bathrooms and a well equipped laundry. All linen is supplied, including bath towels and tea towels.

Sandcastle Retreat is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic location The location of this property is fantastic. Our party of 7 from Melbourne and the UK stayed here for 10 nights. Rooms were spacious and comfortable but we couldn't help but notice that the place could do with a thorough clean (found a moldy baby's bottle under the cabinet in the lounge). Access to the beach was as described and had the fortune to see visiting dolphins during breakfast on the deck. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend this property to family and friends. Please note that the Wi-Fi was not working and was not fixed during our stay causing a slight inconvenience. Would like to recommend O'Sheas around the corner for dinner and Cruze in Cairns for the best coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would highly recommend this property. We (8 adults) were in Cairns from Perth for a week and used this house as our base. It was so inviting and relaxing and the best house to return to at the end of day. It felt good to walk in the front door and to see the ocean straight out the back and so calming after a day travelling around, very modern, clean & tidy, well accommodated, relaxing house with great surroundings, beach walks and views with 10 minutes drive to the CBD which was great. We hope to return to Cairns and wouldnt bother looking for another place better than this one.
