Absolute waterfront B&B Retreat, or, Macleay Island Holiday Home on Secret Beach


Rediscover life, nature and yourself

(or,  just  take 'time-out')

Escape from the crowds to Yarrandabbi Dreaming beachfront retreat; a peaceful, stylish 1 or 2 bedrooms luxury garden apartment with all facilities, or, its adjacent very comfortable Queen bedroom self-contained cottage, on picturesque Macleay Island; only an hour's drive and ferry ride from Brisbane's CBD.

Indulge yourselves in the beautiful spacious apartment for four with 2 bedrooms, private spa bathrooms, patios and Bay views, or, unwind in the informal and pretty Writers' Cottage for two, with open-plan kitchen/living & Sea glimpses.

Enjoy the surrounding, unafraid myriad birdlife! Listen to their songs, the night Owl and the serene sound of waves lapping on Secret Beach.


Paddle our canoe or kayak for an up-close experience observing turtle, dugong and dolphin frequenting our peaceful Perulpa Bay. Cast a fishing line, place a crab pot or enjoy a picnic on our Secret Beach, finding shade under trees in the afternoon Sun.


Relax with 'Happy Hour' drinks on weekends at the 'Sundowner Bar' as guests of your hosts Trevor and Yvonne. 

Rejuvenate and renew in our tranquil, natural environment - you deserve it! 

Here, is where  'the way things were' before crowds and traffic.
