The fragrance of the fresh salty sea drifts in on a gentle, cooling breeze as you recline on a wrap-around deck, enjoying the shade and a good book. There is nothing quite as relaxing as hearing the sound of waves crashing just meters away.

When you need to feel the sand between your toes and warm saltwater wash over you, the Bundaberg Region is the epitome of a staycation – none more so the Luray Beach Retreat at Woodgate Beach.

Just moments away from the pristine and peaceful esplanade, Luray is an architectural gem with calming ocean views and ample space for the whole family.

An airy twist on the classic American- inspired Hampton’s style beach house, it comfortably sleeps up to eight people. Owners Luke and Rachel Alderson have created it with the needs of their guests front of mind.

“We are avid travellers ourselves and know it’s the little things that count. So we’ve made sure the essentials are all readily available for those staying; everything from crisp linen and beach towels to pantry staples,” Rachel said.

More than just a holiday home, Luray is a contemporary four-bedroom and two-bathroom beauty, master planned to provide the perfect vacation experience.

The home’s open plan seamlessly brings the outdoors inside, and the generous- sized gourmet kitchen has been created for those who love to whip up a feast while entertaining family and friends.

Vaulted ceilings and sliding doors enhance the sense of space and light, capturing the sea breezes which gently flow through the home.

Tucked away at the highest level in the house is the parents’ retreat, a truly special space for guests to share a coffee or rest after a day at the beach.

Of course the home’s exterior is equally impressive. Luray’s wrap-around deck, white weatherboard and natural timber tones signal the absolute essence of beachside living.

Whether you’re seeking the ultimate luxe seaside escape, wanting to create family memories that will last a lifetime or craving a romantic getaway, Luray is waiting to welcome you.
