About Us


The Kahuna Bay journey started out as a passion for the beach and love for tropical inspired decor.

Founded by Susie Hambleton first as a retail boutique in 2002 under the name Beach Chic, then as an Australian brand a few years later designing, curating and manufacturing gorgeous hand made tropical products and stocking around 200 stores Australia wide.  

Susie took a break for a few years, and relaunched Kahuna Bay in 2016. 

We now aim to find, create and inspire people the world over to create a beautiful tropical inspired home and live a natural beach inspired life. We believe the way you are on holiday should be every day... and why not?

It just takes some intentional living. 

Our favourite things come from natural materials, are organic where possible, timeless style and design and reminds us of the beach or an island memory. 

We create and style our own products, found, designed and sourced from tropical locations as well as source beautiful things we love from other designers and quality brands. 

Kahuna Bay is here on this planet to create beach things for no other reason than it makes people happy. We plan to do something special with Kahuna Bay in our next chapter - just exactly what this is, is yet to be seen! 

We like it best when our beachy things are one of a kind or limited editions. 

Based in Brisbane, Australia, we hope to inspire you to live a tropical life in a beautiful home that just feels good! We love our beach decorating community and would be great to get to know you - we connect daily on Instagram @kahunabay

We offer free shipping and ship internationally. 

Thanks for stopping by!
