The Beach House

The House of Thirteen beach house will be your place of rest and play for the retreat. This location has been chosen because of its incredible ocean views and close proximity to 3 different beaches - which means you'll find perfect conditions within walking distance, whatever the winds.

Within a 5-minute walk of the house, you'll find a general store with amazing fresh produce, the best cafe on the island, fresh homemade gelato, local restaurants, a pharmacy, and pretty much anything you could need over the weekend. This means that you can leave your car on the mainland without suffering any inconvenience.

The beach house is equipped with a large yoga space, yoga mats and props, a huge kitchen, and features views of Frenchman's beach. Spacious bedrooms are the perfect place to retreat to after some time on your mat or chatting with your women kin. Accommodation options that suit all budgets and needs are available.

Retreat location

Island in the Sun - Minjerribah

North Stradbroke Island is a pristine natural environment located just 30 kilometers southeast of Brisbane. It's home to arguably the most beautiful and quiet beaches in Australia and is one of the best-kept secrets on the east coast.

From the second you step off the ferry, life just feels different. You'll be hard pushed finding anyone who's only visited Straddie once for this reason. The waters that surround the island have to be seen, to be believed and are teaming with dolphins, fish, turtles, manta rays, and humpback whales during migration. You'll likely see all of the above during your weekend on the Island or even just from the balcony of your beach house.

The retreat is held in the beach town of Point Lookout - the perfect location to immerse yourself in a weekend of yoga, connection with women, and yourself. With kilometers of quiet beaches to stroll and dunes to sit atop in solitude as you watch mother and calf cruise the coast, you will re-emerge from the Island as your best and most full-hearted self.

The Island is renowned for world-class surfing, 4 wheel driving, and fishing. Minjerribah is a wonderful place for anyone looking to learn more about the indigenous history and unique Quandamooka culture that makes Stradbroke island so special.

A quick 20-minute passenger ferry ride will take you from Brisbane's bayside to the island, where your private transfer to Point Lookout awaits you.
