Stayz award winning cottage Kyeema was designed by Sydney architect Tony Wakeham. This is the ultimate treetop honeymoon retreat. Spacious open plan design with expansive decks, ocean views, designer kitchen, luxurious bathroom (including a bath with a view) make Kyeema the perfect romantic hideaway for a couple to totally escape and appreciate this special part of Fraser Island. Kyeema is freestanding and totally private with separate access and parking.
"A big thank you to Simon and Tilly for providing us an unforgettable Fraser island experience. Many times we commented to each other just how nice it was to step inside out of the sun, wind and sand to a beautiful, luxuriously appointed haven. Sitting out on the generous deck in the morning with a cuppa and in the evening with a beer was just a great way to start and finish the day. The whole holiday went like clockwork. From the booking, organising, information exchange to finally the holiday itself. There was nothing left to chance and we felt very special. Kyeema is first class accommodation, very reasonably priced and located, we believe, on the best part of Fraser Island. You couldn’t ask for more and you will do well to find it. Thanks again, it was awesome". Trevor
"We absolutely loved the house and our trip. Fraser is stunning! The sunsets and sunrises were spectacular and having a deep soak in the bath after a day of fishing and exploring was brilliant. We will definitely be coming back and plan to stay with you again. On arrival the house was immaculate in presentation and we attempted to leave it exactly the same way. Returning from an early morning fish to have bacon and eggs on the deck was perfect too. It is very well set up. We truly had a magical time and part of that was arriving at such a gorgeous place to stay. Thank you , we simply cannot wait to return to Kyeema!" Angie
“Spectacular!! My partner and I love Fraser Island, especially the northern end where Orchid Beach is located. I can honestly say Kyeema is the best accommodation I've ever booked. The house is stunning - light, spacious and contemporary, with a fantastic bathroom and a large balcony set amongst the treetops. We had perfect weather throughout our stay in May 2011, so made the most of the owners' recommendations and visited places we hadn't seen before. We're looking forward to returning... hopefully soon!” Carolyn
"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Kyeema. Loved the simplicity of the house and its liveability, the effectiveness of the ventilation and the view from among the treetops. You and your architect friend did a great design job. We will certainly be extolling its virtues to our friends and think about it again for ourselves."...Terry
"A little piece of paradise! Perched on the side of a hill, overlooking glorious bushland and glimpses of the sea, the complete glass front windows make the most of the view and the tranquil atmosphere. The large deck is an experience in itself, it resembles the feeling of a ‘tree house’, with a fold-up umbrella providing an extra welcome bit of shade. The place is totally open plan, and everything flows together beautifully. I loved waking up and enjoying the view from the bed as soon as I woke up ‘from the sounds of nature’. The kitchen was well equipped (including a fabulous stove top coffee maker!). Oh, and the bath tub has a view also!! Kyeema is one of the most beautiful, relaxing, natural places I have stayed in. We spent our honeymoon there one year ago and then we came back to celebrate our anniversary! Perfect for couples :) Everything about it feels natural whilst always maintaining that feeling of luxury. If you want to get away from it all and have an experience of utter peace and tranquillity, Kyeema is your place!"
“ "Kyeema is a truly wonderful place, in a very special part of the Island. We were very impressed by the houses style and functionally. Having the ocean breeze running though the semi-outdoor bathroom is a fantastic way to relax after a big day of exploring the Island. Kyeema has a modern and fully equipped kitchen and a protected outdoor BBQ, which were both excellent to cook with. The large sunny outdoor deck with views of the beach, framed by the tree tops, was perfect to sit and enjoy glass of champagne. Highly recommended for those who want to get away from the usual 'tourist route' and have serenity, seclusion and beautiful surroundings.” - Jim and Jay
"It was an extremely enjoyable few days (never enough), and despite the crowds we were able to find some quiet places to enjoy the island's magic. I always think those dwellings you have constructed are such a credit to your vision and tenacity, the way they so neatly morph into the landscape while providing for all our needs, yet also with a high aesthetic value. We'll be back...but then, I guess you knew that": Regards Stuart
“Stunning views. complete privacy and fantastic sounds of birds and the ocean. Wouldn't have stayed anywhere else.” -Claire
"We loved our stay here! It has everything we enjoy the most....peace and quiet, ocean sounds. birds and great breezes. Terrific house!!! You've done a great job. We'll be back."- John and Kaz
" We had a great time on the island and really enjoyed the being able to relax in the beautiful Kyeema. Kyeema has everything needed, and the location just tops it off! Everything was lovely and clean on arrival and that view- is just perfect! This was our second stay at Kyeema and we are already talking about our stay next year. Thanks again" Nerissa
"Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise; our stay was wonderful and we loved every second. Kyeema has such a great feel about it and I chose it following a recommendation from a colleague who stayed there previously. We will definitely be back only next time it will be for much longer." Kind regards, Julie 😊
“Kyeema was the perfect place for a couple to get totally away from everything and just relax. We enjoyed waking up to the birds and the view. I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen as it was all open plan. It was like staying in a little tree house. The house was so comfortable and it captured all the lovely breezes. We will be back in the not too distant future.” - Nicole
"Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful house. It is a testament to how the simple things in life are always the best". - Katy and Rick
“In one word homely. Gorgeous home away from home in beautiful location; perhaps the best part of Fraser. Home was spotless and well appointed with everything you could possibly require. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.” Marcella
"We had a wonderful stay at Kyeema - albeit too short (work gets in the way). The accommodation was in a very relaxing setting and so very enjoyable. You must be commended on the items provided etc it was sensational. Well done on the design and layout it was perfect to take advantage of the views, breeze, sunrises and moon over the beach. We hope to be back." Amanda
"Our holiday was spectacular. This is one of the first places I've stayed that is actually better than the pictures!! The place was clean, beautiful and breezy and I definitely hope to return in the future for further stays". Holly“
We had a wonderful stay. Peaceful and relaxing. Lots of fishing and walking on the pristine beaches. Kyeema is set up for a couple who want peace and nothing to do but listen to the birds and to feel as if they are in a tree house. We could not recommend a stay more highly.” Mike and Marilyn Reynolds
“A beautifully designed and detailed house to stay in and completely relax. We especially enjoyed the light airy touch of the bathroom (mesh only). Mid winter, but very much still warm enough. We also enjoyed the beautiful NG Rosewood timber throughout, the carefully selected furniture and the generous timbers in the bathroom and verandahs. Found the internet information you provided and wonderful places to visit inspiring - all amazingly peaceful and stunningly beautiful.” Linda and Geoff
“We loved our stay here! It has everything. We enjoy the most…peace and quiet. Ocean sounds." - John and Kaz
"We were lucky enough to stay this time, in two houses. It was the perfect arrangement for family and friends. We had an absolutely fun, peaceful and adventurous holiday. The houses are perfect in every way and the set up s stunning. We cannot wait to return".- Nicholas and Matthew
"WOW" We could not have asked for a better place to stay than Kyeema at Orchid Beach. The house's open plan suited our requirements perfectly with the glass louvers allowing the perfect amount of sea breeze in to cool down those summer days & balmy nights. The view from the deck was just as described in the advertisement, what a way to finish off a great day fishing or swimming than a cold drink & cheese platter on the deck looking at the great views to Waddy Point or Sandy Cape. We will definitely be back. "Thanks for the Great Memories"…. Nick
“Thank you very much for having us at your fantastic house. We had such an enjoyable and relaxing time! You can certainly see the effort that went into the design... It is very liveable! Thanks again”. Rick.
"We had a wonderful time here at the Kyeema tree house!!! We thought that the house was very tastefully decorated and enjoyed the utter serenity it brought. This was a very big change from the life we left in NYC. We are sad to go, but know we will definitely be back."- Shirley and Max
“Kyeema was the most wonderful place to have a Fraser get away. The house is stylishly furnished and equipped with all the necessities, whilst keeping with the Fraser theme. It is the fourth time we have been to Fraser and Kyeema would be the most impressive for accommodation. Orchid Beach is a great place for a retreat as it is not as busy as the southern areas of the island. We highly recommend Kyeema for a wonderful Fraser getaway”. Nicholas and Matthew.
"Beautiful place. Will always be in our memorieas as I proposed to my girlfriend on a beautiful afternoon at Wathumba Creek. I think our life together started perfectly". - Danny ......P.S. I said "Yes" - Mel
“Kyeema was a wonderful experience for us as a couple. The house is a fine example of style and good taste. It provides you with the opportunity to connect with each other and with the natural environment. Seated on the deck with a glass of wine in hand, one is inspired to draw, paint, write or to reflect on the meaningful things in life.” - Peter and Nicola.
"The elegant simplicity of the studio was as impressive as the views. We did not really encounter any major issues except that our stay was not longer. You have our recommendation.” - Michael and Carine
“Our stay at Kyeema couldn't have been better. Very relaxing house with all the comforts needed. Excellent fridge and outdoor Webber.” - Alan and Debbie

"Thanks Simon and Tilly for a beautiful, relaxing stay. When we stayed at K'gari a couple of years ago we thought it was gorgeous. Kyeema is, if possible, even more perfect. We'll be back for sure"- Paul and Kristen.
