The buzz of this personality-laden retreat greets you with surprises at every turn. Texada blends natural beauty with contemporary design. As artist Marc Chagall said “Great art picks up where nature ends.”.

Texada is filled with thoughtful contradictions and a playful intersection of old and new.

Watch the native bird-life swoop through the trees as you relax in the heated outdoor hot tub on your deck within a private garden scattered with sculpture. Texada is located on a bird transit route and is renowned for the species of birds the property supports.

This inspired space will tempt you to extend your visit

Me and my partner have been back to Texada two or three times now in different seasons and will definitely go again. The private entry with key safe is one of my favourite features. You don't have to see anyone to check in. The heater works a treat, bed is deliciously comfy, as is the sofa - but to be...

What more could you ask for, we left Melbourne on a cold, wet Friday night only to arrive to a wonderful welcome at Texada. The lights and heating were on in anticipation of our late arrival along with a chilled bottle of chardonnay and a couple of glasses. The outdoor hot tub was steaming and we couldn't wait to relax...
