A rare opportunity to purchase your very own slice of literal paradise for sub-$10 million has just popped up. Located in the idyllic Whitsundays is the perfect example of barefoot luxury and what Broadsheet only recently described as the archipelago’s most secluded escape of its kind – Elysian Retreat.
Boasting of pure waters, pure air, and pure landscape, this multi-million dollar property redefines the term: “retreat”. And it’s one that’ll practically wash away all your modern-day worries on those picturesque shores.
“It’s really about unplugging from the world,” says Laureth Rumble, co-owner of Elysian Retreat.
“We’re opposite a national park, so that’s your view. Then there’s a rainforest behind you. People really have a chance to relax and disconnect.”
7.41 acres of pristine land, 10 king ensuite villas with private balconies for 10 of the lads, and an endless stretch of crystalline waters which makes a compelling case for Heaven-on-Earth being located in Queensland. Here, luxury isn’t defined by the manufactured elements – it’s defined by the rare opportunity to experience untouched geography of this calibre (corners of the world resembling the likes of Elysian Retreat come few and far between).
Other amenities available at this fully operational oceanfront boutique stay ranges from a great house with multiple lounge + dining areas; a licensed restaurant and bar kitted out with a commercial-grade-kitchen; spa treatment centre and yoga areas; as well as an edge swimming pool.
On the more functional side of things, the future proprietor may also expect a helipad and seabed mooring which can reportedly accommodate for a 20-tonne vessel, staff quarters – 5 bedrooms, 2 toilets, 3 showers, kitchen, dining + lounge area – laundry facilities, and best of all, 100% “off-the-grid” infrastructure. That’s a solar farm for electricity, water farm for water, in-ground water irrigation, and even a Bio-Cycle waste system with back-up generators. You’d almost never have to revisit the mainland if you felt so inclined.
