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
