Coast retreat listed on new nude Airbnb alternative
IF YOU are all about packing the bare minimum on holidays then this Airbnb property could be the perfect fit.
Noosa Edge Nudist Retreat is one of the three Queensland properties listed on a new app that has branched off the popular booking site.
NaturistBnB provides a specific list of 'clothing-optional' accommodation sites which are currently advertised on Airbnb, making it easier for those dedicated to the nudist lifestyle to book a holiday.
It was started by a couple in Finland and features properties from around the world.
Their site states; "We realised that the Airbnb community does not really encourage the nudist lifestyle. That inspired us to create a site dedicated to clothing optional holidays with ease and convenience of Airbnb."
Noosa Edge Nudist Retreat owner Rainer Mueckenberger said people travel from all over the region to stay at his "adults only" resort.
"I'm always busy," he said.
"I'm the only nudist retreat that's lets anyone in, no matter their gender."

Sure, I'd give it a go.
I've already been on one.
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
The retreat is strictly for those 18 years and over and is located 10 minutes away from Noosa Heads.
"We offer a secure, private, safe and respectful environment that is perfect for romantic getaways, a place to relax and freely explore or come and play with like-minded people," Mr Mueckenberger said.
"We aim to create a positive, and non-judgmental environment for all of our guests."
Mr Mueckenberger has run the clothing-optional bed and breakfast in Doonan for six years.
His 2.5 acre property offers a man-made "cave" which has a spa in it to add to the experience.
The resort also boasts a "bondage room".
"People can experience their fantasies as long as it's adult consenting activities," he said.
"If you tell me within 10 seconds of anything that bothers you I will stop it.
"My place is a facilitation not a party place."
Mr Mueckenberger said anyone was welcome to come along to the retreat and experience the relaxed vibe for themselves.
"Most people just want to come and have the sunshine on their naked bodies."
A room at the retreat was currently listed on the site from $145 a night.
