Bedarra Island is the location where lifestyle and the landscape join to create paradise. Come and absorb the passion and romance of the island while staying in this private retreat.

These memories will be with you forever as this house is designed for those who wish to escape, unwind and relax. This is our Garden of Eden and it is a visual delight for the senses to enjoy.

The House

The beach house experience creates a unique contrast for the modern day beachcomber. Offering the ultimate in privacy, the islands stunning natural beauty is highlighted by pure white beaches, turquoise waters, soaring granite boulders and lush green rainforest.

Architect designed for the tropic climate and relaxed holiday living this pavilion style house nestles high in the trees with stunning Coral Sea views toward nearby Dunk Island. Thanks to a rare freehold title this exclusive island enclave features two private beaches, shared with only a handful of other residences.

Fact File

What to wear?

As you will transfer from Mission Beach by boat you'll need to wade through shallow waters and assist with luggage/groceries from/to the beach, boat and is suggested that you have shoes that are easily removed, and maybe a change of clothes eg shorts. In winter the evenings can be cool so please pack some warm clothes.

What to pack?

Basically as little as possible. A few casual clothes and one pair of shoes, maybe some sandals or bring towels and linen as the house is fully stocked. Do bring some of your favourite books, magazines, hat, camera, sunscreen, toothpaste, Ipod etc. If possible do not bring lots of little bags, but a duffle style bag that is easy to manage. Consider packing a small back pack and reef shoes for outdoor exploration.

On arrival at Bedarra

You will be met by house managers who will take you and your luggage to the house. Our house managers will provide an orientation tour of the house, island and surrounds.

Time to relax?

There is chilled island spring water and ice in the fridge. Have a swing in the hammock before you unpack Any additional questions can be answered by our house managers. If you any further questions they are only a phone call away.

Unpacking

We have conventional electric fridge as well as small electric car fridge which is excellent for keeping your drinks chilled to the perfect temperature.

Who to call?

Hopefully no one, the house phone allows only local calls.

Power

The house runs on a sophisticated solar power system. The house was recently renovated and now has a massive 6.3kw system which has no limitations as far as normal use is concerned.

Water

This is a limited resource, please conserve it. The tap water is from an island spring, filtered, perfectly safe and wonderful to drink.

Waste

All garbage is removed by guests. Disposal of garbage is included in your Water Taxi fare. Please use strong garbage bags.

Your departure time would have been advised prior to your arrival. Our house managers will contact you prior to departure to verify your transfers and make arrangements for their assistance with your belongings on the Haffy.

Island of Paradise a secret revealed

  • 5 of 5

From the moment Jason pointed out our place in paradise as we stepped off the boat onto Bedarra Island, we knew we had come to somewhere special. Heading up the winding path, we came to our secret hideaway for the next seven days. The Beach House is a beautiful home, set high among the tropical trees and overlooking the Coral Sea. The Beach House is very comfortable and has many wonderful features and artefacts. The design is perfect and we felt very comfortable there, reading, resting and relaxing. Without Anne and John, Bec and Jason, Shirley and Wayne, Chris, celebrating our Golden Wedding and a 70th birthday would not have had that extra bit of magic. Thank you to you all

WOW WOW WOW

  • 5 of 5

This house and location are divine. The surrounds are postcard picture perfect.

My husband and I just celebrated our honeymoon at this house, and we can't stop talking about it. Its a beautiful hidden little gem, and one for the bucket list. Truly felt like we had our own private island. The house is so well equipped with everything and more. You can't help but relax, unwind and enjoy the serenity!

Can highly recommend and we plan to return in the future! Thank you Anne & John for opening up this little treasure and sharing your piece of paradise

Divine Destination

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully maintained treetop home with everything we needed with views to Dunk from every aspect of the house. Arrived to our groceries packed away our luggage awaiting. We could start relaxing immediately. I couldnt recommend it highly enough. The house is stunning and Bedarra is breathtaking. We enjoyed snorkelling, kayaking, swimming and walking. With drinks on the deck each evening. We will be back.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

Bedarra Island Beach House is amazing! Fabulous views, a great design and tastefully decorated. The team that look after this little gem pay a great deal of attention to the details, from the meeting at the beach on arrival to the cold bottle of Moët and fresh flowers. I would thoroughly recommend it!

Bedarra Bliss :)

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property with everything you need for a luxury break - the house is fabulous and the island is beautiful and deserted - apart from the great wildlife - birds, Dugongs, Turtles, fish and many many butterflies! I wish we could have stayed for a month. Definitely book Bec and Jase at Mission Beach Charters for your transfer. Thanks to Shirley and Wayne for all your help getting to and from Bedarra - you made it so easy! We will be back soon :)

Absolutely amazing property

We absolutely loved and enjoyed our stay at this beach house. The house had everything that you would need and more. The view is just magical. I would never get tired of listening to the birds watching the butterflies and the ocean.
