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, has air conditioning 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 Excellant Prpoerty Very peaceful location, close to the beach to walk our 2 Labradors, not far from the boat ramp. It was as described & everything in good repair. Looking forward to another trip. Now we know the set up will be perfect for an extended family holiday with each have their own place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything we needed it was only 2 nights while we attended a wedding at Bribie Island but Rita's Retreat supplied all our needs and was quiet and spacious while we recovered from our long drive to Brisbane.

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...
