Beautiful, tranquil, scenic, calming, perfect ...

This would be a perfect place to spend more time. We are sorry that we have to leave ... (Germay)

Georgeous view, garden and house.

This was our best short holiday ever ... We loved everything here ... We will come back for a longer stay next time.

Very beautiful view. A wonderful house! We like it very much! (Shanghai, China)

Stunning view and house. This is my new peaceful place ...

We love staying here! The herb and veggie garden is great and the view spectacular...

Wow - just wow. This is what we said multiple times! Beautiful house, fantastic views. The house was so well equipped, so well maintained. Wow.

Best set up house we have ever stayed in. Beautiful location, amazing walks and we had a fantastic morning kayak on our last day to top it all off. Definitely be back to this place of paradise!!

Thanks so much for such a deliciously relaxing stay in a gorgeous location. It’s rare to find somewhere that anticipates every need... Thanks again for sharing such a magical place.

Our second visit and it was just as beautiful as our memories. The attention to detail is fantastic ... We will be back.

Marvellous stay. Very impressive landscape!

Beautiful peaceful place... 4 hour kayak, saw every bit of birdlife possible including Emu...

What a pleasure it was to be surrounded by beautiful artwork, furniture, doona covers and garden! We loved the choice of colours, peace and quiet, the personal touches, that made for us a perfect stay.

Back again ....2 years since our last visit. Once again we can’t get over the peace, the quiet, the birds – just a wonderful relaxing time with all those extra spoilt touches...

Lovely place, quiet, cosy, welcoming. Plus a fantastic night sky for us to see.

...such a wonderful place to stay. Everything is so well thought out and you can tell that there’s a little bit of love that goes into it all too! We look forward to coming back again, this is a great location.

An amazing weekend – a great get together for our family. Great position, lovely house and garden, especially the frogs!!

The best accommodation we’ve ever had including Europe and the USA.

Wonderful stay! You have thought of everything.

Fabulous stay in a relaxing and peaceful environment. Great way to unwind!

... We will see it all again soon I hope.

... Needed longer.

... This holiday house is as good as it gets.

Best place on our long journey NZ/Aus. A wonderful high class refugium.

Earlier comments from our guest book:

"What a treat...... The house is beautiful and comfortable, I loved going to the veggie patch to get some vegetables to make salads. Getting up in the morning and looking at the view, it just makes you feel so RELAX, and in peace! The house is full of small details to make you feel at home! ..."

The perfect place to stop and relax. Log fire, view, veggies and a glass of sparkling - oh and books... We wanted for nothing"

"It is virtually impossible to not enjoy this beautifully laid out house and the serene Coorong that surrounds it..."

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here; what's not to enjoy? Such a lovely house, everything has been thought of..."

"We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your wonderful retreat. The view over the Coorong is amazing and you also have a lovely garden at the back..."

"Thank you for creating such a beautiful and comfortable retreat. We could spend hours just relaxing and looking at the view..."

"This quiet place with the sounds of birds, overlooking the water, with the sand dunes in the distance, was perfect for our weekend break. We loved the kayak trip to the southern ocean and walking though natural bushland was great. The Retreat is perfect..."

"What a wonderful place! Comfortable and so relaxing. A great view. Lovely to just sit and watch the bird life, frogs in the pond in the evening, and the water.... We even enjoyed the strong winds and rain when we were cosy by the fire...."

".... Loved the parade of pelicans and swans morning and night over the water; saw an eagle and Nankeen Kestrels and enjoyed the honeyeaters' songs."

"A great place to stay with a large range of things to do and see ...."

"Couldn't believe how easy it was to to kayak through the glassy waters from virtually the front door!"

"A fantastic location and beautifully equipped home - only wish I could have stayed longer..."

"You have named this place correctly - Retreat! The house is perfect. The location serene. This morning a kangaroo bounded across the grassy verge, as we had a 'cuppa' watching the white caps."

"We had a wonderful cosy weekend in front of the fire. 42 Mile Crossing and the walks around there were beautiful. Lovely location."
