Villa Zara is wonderfully unusual, something of a stone-age temple sitting up on the bedrock and looking down over its own (almost) private beach. Crafted by a local builder-cum-sculptor, the structure is made almost wholly from sculpted concrete.....

.... The walls are all free-form, with large windows which create the impression that the tropical garden is growing into the rooms; elsewhere, walls simply do not exist, in order to make the most of the view. The main lodge/kitchen area has glamorous beach aspects with giant cushions, wide window-seats, fireplace, timber poles supporting a vaulted roof and glass doors which slide back to views straight ahead to the reef. Step right to the deep sunken pool. Head left along pink paths down to two separate sleeping/living areas. My favourite was the shack closest to the surf. With a curious indoor/outdoor shower that you share with tropical irises, bright yellow and blue beds draped in mosquito nets and a rope-and-trap-door option to your own upstairs lounge, it’s hard to do the place justice. 14km of sandy beach at the end of the garden, cassowaries in it. Dunk Island ferry terminal 5 mins drive. Mission Beach Village 9.5km. Children over 12 years welcome.
