$5,000AUD per night
24 Arakoon Crescent, Sunshine Beach
Holding sentry over one of Australia’s most desirable ocean outlooks, this spectacular property blends the organic with the modern, the eyecatching with the artful and the subtle with the carefully curated. Bold in style and luxurious in execution, it’s a masterclass of design that seamlessly enhances contemporary living with a beautiful and timeless perspective.
Nestled within prestigious Sunshine Beach, the four-bedroom home cascades down the slope of one of the coast’s most alluring waterfront positions. This ensures an unparalleled panorama from the front door to the back, as the ocean cycles through the blues of day and the inky black of night, framed through massive banks of glass on every level. Yet the design of the interiors is just as entrancing – with the odd moment of stylish surprise.
Spreading out across three tiers, the property thoughtfully places its bedrooms in the middle level, with easy access via a private lift. Spacious and serene, these rooms offer a private haven for rest and retreat, while allowing parents and children to remain close. This sense of unity is underscored by a gorgeous sensory palette that pairs the subtlest of colours with an expansive, often unexpected, use of timber and concrete, stretching across the walls, ceilings and walkways. Banks of glass bathe the rooms in gorgeous sunshine, while a full-width furnished terrace off the master suite melds seamlessly with the elements. It’s an invitation to make the sun your alarm clock and view the waves as your ultimate soundtrack.
Across the home’s lifestyle hubs, the sophisticated meld of black, earthy and neutral tones creates an inviting canvas for signature elements to claim centre stage. Among them is the property’s beautifully hewn stone, which reaches across its floors and walls, turns bathrooms into sanctuaries and helps to link the outdoors with the in. Nowhere is this more prominent than in the courtyard and void at the heart of the home, which opens up space for a beautiful tree to grow through the levels and towards the sun. It’s a powerful reminder of the coast’s lush environment and the majesty of Mother Nature.
Elsewhere on this ground level, the focus is on entertainment in all its forms, from a spacious media room to an open-plan dining, living and kitchen zone that is perfectly set up to cater for large groups. Designed for mingling and merriment, it brings together families, friends or joyful combinations of the two, from delicious Sunday night roasts to more casual gatherings that spill outside, where a heated pool is a chance to cool off, an outdoor fireplace creates a true sense of warmth and a spacious emerald lawn invites games involving balls, bats and beyond. Don’t expect anyone to leave early!
Stretching out in either direction, the postcard-worthy scene draws a smaller crowd than its higher-profile coastal neighbours, allowing a full sense of family relaxation. Take a stroll, splash in the shallows, swim in the patrolled area, head towards the surf break or simply claim a spot under the shade of a beach umbrella. For those who prefer to stay dry, the top level of the home gives an alternative perspective on the water, with a massive family room leading through to an open-air rooftop terrace overlooking the action happening beachside. Comfortably furnished, it’s also the perfect setting for morning coffee, moments for couples or even quality time with a good book. You may even spot a whale at just the right time of year.
For those looking to explore further afield, the delights of Noosa National Park and Sunshine Beach Village are close by, while a short drive opens up tourist favourites such as the river and retail of Gympie Terrace, the cosmopolitan icon that is Hastings St and the world-famous slice of natural beauty that is Main Beach. Make time to explore the coast, enjoy it and take plenty of photos. Then return home to your hillside retreat. For it’s here you can truly relax, with the horizon in your view, the tang of salt air on your tongue and the crash of the waves in your ear. It’s Mother Nature on show, in the most artful of surrounds. Pure perfection in paradise.
