When Chris and I emigrated to Sydney in 2014 we instantly fell in love with the natural beauty of Australia. We love exploring new places but Pearl Beach quickly became a destination we kept returning to. The roads are all named after gemstones and the isolation it offers helps clear the mind and stimulate creativity. I believe it is this reason that Pearl Beach is home to many designers and is committed to the art scene with music festivals and an art trail.

There is something magical about arriving in Pearl Beach that creates a sense of intent to unwind and step away from your busy life. There is one road in and out of Pearl Beach - one doesn't simply pass through, rather you set the intention to arrive at this unspoiled destination and embrace the peace, the quiet and the time to retreat and reflect, before returning, revived, to the outside world.

This relatively unknown paradise, with it's beautiful sandy beach with views across Broken Bay to Palm Beach and Lion Island became our retreat from the hustle of the city.

After spending endless weekend getaways in Pearl Beach with our close friend Pia, we decided to design a retreat of our own.

'Jeweller's Retreat' started life as an unassuming family home but I saw great potential in designing a hideaway where one could hole oneself up for days at a time and truly rejuvenate. After 7 months of hard work and renovations I am delighted with the result. I am excited about spending time here over the summer; swimming in New South Wales's cleanest ocean pool, walking up to Warrah Lookout and down to The Boat House or Pearls on the Beach for dinner. Cosying up in front of the log fire in winter, visiting a Pearl Farm or local winery and bushwalking with Archie.

I invite you to enjoy Jeweller's retreat as much as we have already and encourage you to relax, rewind and enjoy all that Pearl Beach and the surrounding area has to offer.
