The Golden Sands Retreat was an iconic holiday retreat during the 60’s, 70’s & 80’ enjoyed by Darwin locals. Whether you have camped or stayed in the “relative luxury” of the cabins many have enjoyed this beautiful beachside property in the past. If you stayed here as a kid, now you can bring your own children to discover the delights & serenity of Wagait Beach and the Cox Peninsula. Now the accommodation is the renovated main house.
Just a 1 ½ hour drive from Darwin (or catch the ferry across in 15 minutes from Cullen Bay / Larrakeyah), the Golden Sands main house has been completely renovated, retaining it’s territory style and charm.
Over two stories, with 4 double air-conditioned bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, two kitchens and two living areas this stunning property is so peaceful and relaxing you will never want to leave. The upstairs Master suite is enormous with a beautiful ensuite plus walk in robe and a tranquil view through the tree tops to the beach. The open plan living area is spacious with rich timber flooring, a gourmet kitchen and bifold doors open to the huge balcony setting with views of our beach.
Downstairs we again have two bedrooms with a shared ensuite, another kitchen, open plan living area with original slate floors, a pool table plus a large laundry/utility room. Another outdoor living area overlooks the coastal reserve to the beach.
The pool has been replaced in a more intimate garden setting, with safety fencing. The entire 1 acre block is fully fenced, safe for your children and your dogs. Yes, we are certainly dog friendly.
