Beachfront Retreat in East Bedarra Island, Australia

Perched on 4,000 square meters of beach and coral, this open-plan villa was carefully designed to make the most of its location. Take up residence in one of the deck's lounge chairs, perfectly positioned to catch the ocean air and the panoramic views. Fans overhead ensure that there's always a breeze.

Deck

The expansive covered deck floats above a natural granite rock tidal pool.

Kitchen

The gourmet kitchen offers chef-grade appliances and easy access to the deck and views thanks to large windows and two sets of sliding glass doors.

Deck and Pool

The home is completely sustainable with 100-percent solar power plus spring and captured rainwater.

Sliding Deck Door

Slide back the glass doors and the boundary between indoors and outdoors vanishes. Guests and hosts can move easily from the kitchen out to the deck and back again.

Deck

All around the home, the architecture and design complements and blends in with its picturesque surroundings. On this portion of the deck, a long bench gracefully follows the curve of the rock next to it.

Deck and View

The only trouble about having cocktail parties on this deck with this view is that guests will never want to go home.

Pool

A glass wall safely encloses the pool nestled amongst the rocks and the large deck. 

Pool and Deck

The pool takes its inspiration from the rock and coral that serve as the foundation of the residence, blending in harmoniously with the natural setting.

Deck and Swing

The open-plan villa has been carefully designed to make the most of the coral sea and breathtaking views. Pick your setting to take them in: dining table, lounge chair or porch swing!

Ocean View

From certain angles, the deck looks as though it's hovering above the water. Just off the house is a large coral reef, home to a rainbow wonderland of marine life.

Pool

Steps beyond the pool, the ocean stretches out from the home in all directions in an unparalleled setting.

View From Deck

Located off the coast of Mission Beach in Australia, Bedarra Island is conveniently centered halfway between the cities of Townsville and Cairns.

Coral Reef

Swim, snorkel or scuba off the beach into a coral wonderland, ocean kayak to secluded coves for a picnic or sail amongst the many tropical islands.

Beach

Yup, you've pretty much reached paradise when quiet beaches like this one are just a hop, skip and jump away.
