Makepeace Island, Sir Richard Bransonʼs luxury pad at Noosa on Australia’s Sunshine Coast, has opened its doors for private lease and launched its first web site


The secluded 25-acre Balinese-built property can accommodate up to 22 guests.


Built in 2009 on a heart shaped island in the Noosa River, ʻMakepeaceʼ has remained a private retreat for family and friends of the owners Sir Richard Branson and Brett Godfrey, founders of Virgin Blue (now Virgin Australia).


Sir Richard said now Makepeace Island would occasionally be offered to other guests. 


When neither Brett nor myself are visiting Makepeace, we will make the island and its facilities available for others to enjoy the tranquility of what is a very special place,” Branson said.


Makepeace Island comes complete with its own riverboat to transfer guests, as well as a full sized tennis court and pavilion, spa facilities and theatre.


There is  a substantial two-storey open aired Balinese wantilan for relaxing or gathering of friends and family, 500,000 litre lagoon pool, office facilities and an expansive indoor bar.


Gardens and indoor decor include giant sculptures, teak, granite and stone finishes, volcanic boulder bathtubs, ornamental lighting and antiquities and furniture commissioned and acquired in Bali, Java and elsewhere throughout Indonesia.


The island will be offered on an exclusive, whole of island basis.
