REVIEWS FROM OUR GUESTS:

"The Whitsunday Retreat at Shute Harbour is without a doubt the perfect holiday destination. It has everything that is needed to create a restful environment, and the views are unparalleled! We spent ten wonderful days there and are looking forward to our return visit. Cathy and Ron are excellent hosts - available if needed but not at all intrusive. We enjoyed our holiday in their lovely apartment and can highly recommend it." Meredith, Adelaide Nov2015

"If you are considering this place - Do yourself a favour and BOOK IT!"

Steven September 15

"Can't believe we found this paradise. Why pay to stay on the islands when you can stay here and enjoy better views AND have more things to do. Great stay! Thanks for sharing your place. We'll be back!" Peter Sep 13

"Can't recommend this place enough. It has to be seen to be believed. We enjoyed 6 days here reading, relaxing and watching the boats!" Janice and Steve

"Paradise awaits you!!

This is undoubtedly one of the most romantic places we have stayed in around the world. The spacious studio has everything you need and certainly you could just stay here to enjoy the atmosphere and pool but there is a lot to do in the area. Shute harbour is a short car ride away and has the ferry to Hamilton Island and beyond. Ahh, life doesn't get better than this. This is a must place to stay." Gay Atlanta, US Feb16

"What an amazing few days we had staying at the Whitsunday retreat. It was a perfect place to spend a honeymoon, but actually I could stay there just to be there. To open your eyes in the morning to see the tree covered islands and the turquoise sea was just magical. The apartment was ideal for any couple even though the weather was not fantastic we were able to chill in absolute comfort and style. The infinity pool and then the warm jaccuzzi melted our aches away after long tropical walks and lazy days at Coral Beach." June 2012

"Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE place!!!! Stayed a week, wish we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect, it was close enough to Airlie Beach"

Secluded paradise

Loved every moment here, so peaceful and relaxing just looking out on that view every day was fantastic! Spent seven nights here and would highly recommend to any one who wanted a peaceful secluded retreat. Have travelled to many places and this would be my favourite place for just relaxing and watching the world go by! Looking foward to return soon. Mel Jan2016

Location description from owner

The Queensland region

Situated on mainland Whitsunday Coast, Shute Harbour and Airlie Beach have long been known as the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands. There is a plethora of day trips to visit the islands, Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven Beach.74 Island Wonders, located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, on the tropical coast of Queensland, Australia.

A visit to the Whitsundays is a feast of the senses, surrounded by natural beauty, dotted with secluded beaches and friendly towns from which to explore.

The hardest part is choosing how to fit it all in. Whale watching season goes from June to September in the Whitsundays. It's a great time to visit while it's cold and rainy down south!There are some lovely walks from the property - Coral Beach and Swamp Bay. It's also nice just to stay in, read a good book and watch the boats go by!

JANUARY TO EARLY APRIL is tropical wet season in Northern Australia - the weather is generally hot and humid and is subject to tropical downpours - mostly at night.

Airlie Beach

We are situated in tropical northern Australia. January through to March is our tropical wet season. It is generally hot and humid and wet for those couple of months.Generally April through to December is the most stable weather in this tropical region. WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT WHITSUNDAY RETREAT:"Seriously why would you pay double the price on one of the islands? Stunning view and facilities and absolute privacy despite being part of a duplex. Easy access to all activities from Shute Harbour. Thank you for the stay and we will be back! I would seriously recommend this place if considering spending the equivalent on the islands as the view and facilities you get here would be worth $1000+ per night on Hamilton. And you can easily get there for dinner for a cheap ferry ride if you want to!: Sam and Hannah Sep13"We went to stay for 6 lovely days and nights at this property. The owner is extremely kind - picking us up in shute harbour. She was also extremely respectful of our privacy. As for the place itself - it has the most amazing views of water and the islands. The photos simply do not do justice to how stunning the views are. They also appeared to us to be the best views in the whole Airlie beach region! There is a lovely hot-water spa which we made use of every day and an infinity pool. The Studio apartment feels much bigger than a studio apartment and is very tastefully decorated. There is no TV reception but there is a hard-drive that has some really good movies and a lot of good TV shows, as well as music. The facilities have everything you could want to cook a meal or do a grill outside and we could not recommend this more as a couple's getaway to really get away from it all in paradise." Anon, 18 July 2011"Meg and I would like to thank you for providing such beautiful accommodation. Ron is a great host, very friendly and willing to assist in any way. We had an amazing time up there, and are sad to be back at work down in cold Melbourne..... Can't wait to visit again. Kind Regards, Rob" March 2012"What an amazing few days we had staying at the Whitsunday retreat. It was a perfect place to spend a honeymoon, but actually I could stay there just to be there.

We must thank Cathi and Ron for picking us up from the Harbour with cases etc. They made us fill so welcome, offering advice on walks, fauna and flora etc and yet respected our privacy.!" June 2012"Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE place!!!! Stayed a week, wish we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect, it was close enough to Airlie Beach to enjoy the restuarants but we loved being away from the noisy people " Aug12

“The ultimate getaway retreat, peaceful and relaxing”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

The location is stunning, over looking islands, yachts and across to the untouched hills. The infinity pool was amazing and refreshing and the spa was hot and inviting when it got cooler in the evenings. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are new, immaculate and have everything you could want. Its so peaceful, you cant hear any traffic but instead the birds which inhabit the bush land beside and in front of the pool A lovely deck area to enjoy some rays and an outdoor setting allow you to make the most of the beautiful weather. I can't fault this beautiful place, i will definitely be returning sometime soon!

“Blissful idyllic retreat .”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2014

“Complete Bliss”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2014

We absolutely loved our stay at 'Whitsunday Retreat' and that is what is was - romantic and so relaxing. We arrived late and were greeted warmly by Cathi and Ron the owners. We awoke to an amazing view of the Whitsundays, that I can still recall so clearly , as it was beautiful. Our apartment had everything we needed plus an Infinity Pool. We had the best seafood platter at Denmans Cellar Beer Cafe in Airlie Beach, so good we went back for a second one on another night. We were able to explore some of the Islands with ease from Shute Harbour and wished we could have stayed longer at the 'Whitsunday Retreat' but it was already booked out. Cathi and Ron are lovely hosts and are to be recommended.
