Queensland, also known as the Sunshine State, is home to some of Australia’s most iconic beaches, spectacular coastlines and lush national parks. To help you make the most out of your stay, we’ve compiled a list of five incredible luxe rentals located in Queensland’s best holiday hotspots.
A Shore Thing, Sunrise Beach
If you’re after a luxury stay that’s a little closer to the beach, the ultra-luxe A Shore Thing located a one-minute drive away from Sunrise Beach might be the perfect rental for you. This property embraces a lush tropical modernism theme, incorporating expansive white interior spaces, natural-textured modern decor and honey-toned wood flooring both inside and outside the home. Inside the property, the combination of wooden textures, straw accessories, brass homeware and lush green plants create a beautiful but cosy tropical-boho space. For those balmy evenings, the partly covered courtyard outdoors features a poolside al-fresco lounging zone that is perfect for winding down and relaxing with the warm summer breeze. This gorgeous rental can cater for up to 6 guests, making it the ultimate group getaway retreat.
Tahiti Palms, Palm Beach
Tahiti Palms is a stunning beach house tucked away in the heart of Palm Beach, one of most popular vacation destinations in the Gold Coast. This recently renovated property is inspired by the picturesque coastline of Palm Beach, adopting natural textures and tones that are reminiscent of its white sandy shores and tropical landscape. When you step inside the home, you’ll find white spacious rooms, open plan living-longue areas, resort-style homeware and beachy accessories. The home is designed in a way that allows lots of natural light to flow throughout the home. The focal aspect of this property, however, is the stunning backyard space where you’ll find a large timber deck with an al-fresco dining deck, palm trees all around and an island seating area under a straw umbrella that is perfect for sipping on coconut mojitos! Not only is this rental right by the beach, but it’s only a short walking distance away from the local restaurants, café and shops. This is the ultimate rental for anyone that loves to feel like they’re on an island getaway all year round.
The Doonan Glasshouse, Noosa Hinterland
The Doonan Glasshouse is an award-winning home located in the spectacular Noosa Hinterland. This stunning property draws inspiration from 1950s modernist architecture and resort-luxe style and was designed by owner-architect Sarah Waller who wanted to create a home that made you feel like you were on vacation all year round. The most striking aspects of this home are the unique flat roof design and the expansive indoor-outdoor layout which features spacious rooms, minimalist decor and floor-to-ceiling windows which slide open to the lush surroundings. The backyard space is the ultimate chill out zone with a 17-metre long pool, a poolside cabana, a fire-pit area and even a hammock between coconut palm trees. The only thing missing here is a chilled glass of wine in hand – which you can easily grab from the wine fridge inside. Also, if you’re wanting to check out some of the local sights, the property is only a 15-minute drive to Noosa and its stunning beaches.
The Rainforest House, Noosa Heads
The Rainforest House in Noosa Heads is equipped with everything you need for a tropical group holiday. This award-winning 2-storey home can host up to 10 guests and features an open-concept layout, indoor fireplace, pool and even a private tennis court for you to enjoy. The modern and minimalist interior style perfectly complements the natural tones and wooden textures used throughout the home. The rental’s unique location next to the Noosa National Park also makes this a truly special holiday experience. This property is specially designed to highlight the impressive National Park outlook, with floor to ceiling windows that showcase the lush tropical backdrop that wraps around the home. Not only is this home in the perfect location to enjoy Noosa’s lush forest landscape, but the Main Beach and stunning scenes of the shorelines are all nearby too.
24 Mossman Court, Noosa Heads
This stunning waterfront hideaway home at 24 Mossman Court in Noosa embraces Balinese-inspired island luxe style with a contemporary twist. The interior is designed with a light and neutral colour palette, island-luxe décor and large windows that allow the sunshine to fill up the room throughout the day. Slide open the retractable doors in the living room which open out to the terrace, where you can enjoy the al-fresco dining space or relax by the pool and palm trees underneath the Balinese-inspired hut. Our favourite part of this stay is the fact that you have your very own private access to the coastline just a few steps away from the patio! The Main Beach and the buzzing cafes and restaurants of Hastings Street are all a short walking distance away, making this rental the perfect option to make the most of your stay in Noosa.
