The Retreat

As a family who loves to travel we have created the perfect mix of the luxury and privacy we enjoy as a couple on holidays with the facilities we need as a family on holidays with the kids. At Sunset Retreat everyone has the space they need to enjoy their holiday the way they deserve to.

Sunset Retreat is a large and spacious family holiday home, close to Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday Islands. There are five bedrooms with three King Beds, single bunks with additional single floor trundle plus two more singles in the children’s TV area that can be covered into a Queen and a double fold sofa bed and porter cot. There are also two additional roll away’s so your bedding can be configured to suit you.

Enjoy time with loved ones at Sunset Retreat, set on a 2.5 acres property to take full advantage of the spectacular views over the freshwater dam, green fields and ranges this is the perfect location to come together.

  12 Guests     5 Bedrooms    3 Bathrooms    Saltwater Pool

Sunset Retreat offers five spacious bedrooms and multiple entertainment areas so everyone can spread out and relax. Larger family groups can relax knowing the kids have a fully enclosed front yard that is overlooked by the pool deck. Complete with an outdoor drinks fridge, twelve seat table, high bar and outdoor TV so you can enjoy the cricket.

Did someone says cold drinks on the pool deck while the little one’s burn off a little energy? The sparkling in-ground pool with built in seating and gradual beach style entry is great for the little ones as is the child’s safety ledge that run’s the perimeter for those still not totally confident in the water.

We are close to Airlie Beach and the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands, yet in a quiet acreage setting so you are assured privacy and peace and quiet.   Sunset Retreat was awarded The Master Builders Award in its category which is a testament to its design and lay out which we can assure you, will impress. 

As the sun sets head out to the back breeze deck and fire up the wood fired pizza oven. Everyone will love making their own creations and there is plenty of space for everyone to kick back and enjoy the evening. Why not finish off out by the fire pit?

In House Catering

We would like to introduce you to the concept of pre-ordering your food and drinks prior to your arrival at Sunset Retreat. Imagine arriving and all the hard work has been done for you? No rushing to the shops or  making multiple stops… what if you could simply pre order everything you and your guests need? Let us show you how.

Words and pictures don’t do this holiday home justice. It simply needs to be experienced! Mel has thought of everything from views from the shower and master bedroom to an entire cupboard of arts and crafts. My partner and I enjoyed three fabulous nights of tranquillity, checking out the mainland, hiking the national parks, dining by the Marina and enjoying movies on the most amazing lounge. Highly recommend as a private resort!”-Krystal August 2020WOW! our families had an amazing time at this place! best sunsets in the Whitsundays!”- Evan August 2020

The perfect home for getting away from the hustle. Peaceful quiet and everything you could possibly need to relax in comfort. Easy stress free self check in and a bottle of bubbles on arrival. The kids enjoyed the space and the small touches everywhere to enjoy some time out. Thank you again” –Jodie September 2020

This place has it all. Big house to accommodate large groups. Wonderful entertaining areas on a large block with a beautiful pool. Not too far out from Airlie Beach. Very child friendly with plenty of toys, games, books and more. Mel And family were extremely helpful when we needed it. Would highly recommend this place. Hope to be back soon.- Nicole January 2020 

“The house is spectacular, we could not be happier with our stay at Sunset Retreat. We stayed as a group of 10 and the house itself is very big with lots of personal home touches, the couch is incredible for lazy days watching Netflix or Foxtel, beautiful big comfy beds, lots of crafts / toys for kids, kitchen is something else and the wood fired pizza with herb garden is excellent. The pool overlooking the valley and dam is incredible. It’s a 10 min drive into Airlie but we much preferred this location to being right in town, very tranquil location.” Jessica – January 2020
