Drewhouse (The Pods) is a uniquely designed beach house providing luxury while still being close to nature. Set on an acre of pristine native forest in the Sunrise at 1770 estate near Agnes Water, the Pods were designed by Simon Laws of Anthill Constructions .

The house was recently featured on Dreambuild (ABC1) as Beach Shack and also appeared in the September 2012 issue of Vogue Living and more recently on channel 10's The Living Room. To see the Dreambuild episode, google 'youtube pods 1770'

The Sunrise resort has two horizon pools overlooking the ocean, 4 tennis courts, poolside barbecue kitchens and playground just for residents and guests. It is an ecologically sensitive, award winning, gated community, Sunrise's rules on domestic animals means that we cannot accept pets (no matter how small). On the other hand, if you like native animals, then you'll be pleasantly surprised by their number and diversity.

Mature Bloodwoods and Cabbage Palms create a natural garden near the ocean and the famous Springs beach, near Agnes Water, the most northerly surf break on the east Australian coast. You can relax around one of the three pools overlooking the ocean, surf or fish or walk the 4 kilometers of beautiful beaches,

Living, sleeping pods and luxury bath house are separated for privacy and quiet but connected by a wooden covered walkway. The wonderful bush land setting and mild sub-tropical climate is full of birds and wildlife, including black cockatoos and grey kangaroos. Rainwater tanks, solar hot water and electricity make this passive energy efficient design a low environmental impact.

The house provides the perfect base from which to walk to the many secluded beaches to which Sunrise has private access. Drive on the private internal roads to one of the beach clubs where you'll find beautiful suspended 25M pools, free tennis and volleyball courts, modern amenities and luxury BBQ huts with solid dining settings and magnificent ocean views.

Life at The Pods centres around the main living pod with its expansive covered wooden deck and circular marble dining table. Move seamlessly through wide doorways from the modern kitchen with 5 burner gas stove, fridge with ice maker, espresso machine, water cooler and quiet dishwasher to outside dining on the shady deck. At the other end of the living pod is the entertainment area. Relax on the generous built in sofas, watch TV or streamed movies, listen to music or play board games. The sofas are also perfect for an afternoon nap or as a bed for an extra guest or two.

The beautiful bathroom pod features walls and floor of Italian travertine with a wall that opens so you can lie in the bath and look at the trees. The deep bath and art glass door that opens in or out allows you to shower inside or 'outdoors'.

The two bedroom pods hold three single beds each with the easy conversion into king sized beds from two singles. Linen is provided for both single and king sized beds. The floors are of polished native timber and the insect screened windows slide to open an entire wall width to the forest outside. Linen, towels, doonas and bed throws are provided.

                                                Katie H.Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia

                                                My family and another family with 4 kids in tow (under 4) recently stayed at The Pods and I must say we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. Communication with the owner Derek was impeccable. The Property Manager Greg was very friendly when checking us in and giving us tips on where to go in the Estate (the whole place is to die for). There is also a place to wash your car in the Estate!

                                                The Pods were very clean and tidy with everything you would need in a home away from home. The kids enjoyed going to the secluded beaches and swimming in that amazing pool with that fantastic view of the ocean.

                                                If you are looking at getting away from the hustle & bustle of City life I would definitely recommend visiting the Pods.

                                                LORNE S.Wellington, New Zealand

                                                We stayed here some 11 years ago and was surprised that the property hasn't dated at all. The design, colours etc... are timeless.

                                                It was a real bonus that there were some, in fact lots of cooking ingredients, sauces etc... this makes cooking easy, I left my basic cooking stuff there for your next tenants. It's great to see the cleaner doesn't take these home for her self. The place was super clean, everything worked well.

                                                Dealing with Derek (the owner) made the booking process very efficient and simple., thanks for sharing your place with us.

                                                We will be back!!

                                                We loved our stay at the Drewhouse, the house is amazing, the location was beautiful both within the estate and the local surrounding area. The owner was fantastic to communication with which also made the whole booking process easy and stress free. I can't recommend this place more highly, we will definitely be coming back here every year.

                                                Great place!


                                                We enjoyed our stay! We will be back next time we are in the area.

                                                We will recommend Drew-house to all our friends and family, we loved it. From the moment we arrived we felt the spirit that it was built with, we felt like we were camping but with a 5 star rating. It was so nice that we hardly left the place. we will definetly stay again next year. Thanks Derek and Greg
