A dreamy, coastal oasis, Barra Luxe Beach House is just 100m from Yaroomba Beach—and a million miles from your day to day life.

This reimagined 1970s beach shack has been transformed into the beach house of your dreams, with five bedrooms and four bathrooms to split with up to 12 of your besties. While it is definitely boujee, Barra embraces its humble roots with vintage furniture and treasures creating the ideal homey atmosphere. It’s a home with all the fixings and perfect for summer barbecues, complete with a fully equipped galley kitchen, three living spaces and outdoor entertainment areas and a pool. There’s an outdoor fire pit for the cooler months—basically it’s got everything.

Just through the park of the plush Barra you’ll find Yaroomba Beach, praised by surfers and locals alike for its white beaches and crystal clear rock pools. And if its nature you’re after, its nature you’ll get. Simply follow The Foreshore Trail to viewing platforms where you can spot osprey, black cockatoos, whales, dolphins and loggerhead turtles.

This truly is the ideal place to sit back, relax, indulge and delight in Queensland’s natural landscape. So whether you’re holidaying with family or friends, planning your ideal mates weekend or maximising luxury and privacy with your S.O. (swoon!), Barra satiates all and you can book yourself a few nights in it here.
