Beautiful beach house!

Thank you Helen and Phillip - Whaler's Retreat had everything we needed in a beautiful location - so close to the beach and walking trails. The property was immaculate and private and provided the perfect Winter escape for our family. We'll be back in Summer to enjoy the water!

Great location and size

  • 5 of 5

This property was great for our family of four, nice views and it was fantastic watching the sunrise in bed! The property was in a quiet location down a driveway, and it was great to have off-road parking. There are DVDs and games to keep you entertained when you're not out enjoying the beautiful white beach. The place is not huge but suited us perfectly, we wished it was a bit warmer outside so we could enjoy the deck a bit more, however we were very comfortable inside for our meals. The property did not need heating whilst we were there and seemed to hold its heat well after the sun had gone down.

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Whalers Retreat. The house provided us with everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away. The home was perfect for families and was conveniently located to beach and cafe.

We will defiantly be returning in the future.

Fabulous home and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a lovely weekend staying at the Whalers Retreat. This home had everything we needed for a relaxing relaxing that even our little early riser slept in until 9am. It is super close to the cafe/local store and really close to the beach. We sat on the balcony after the children when to sleep, drank wine and listened to the ocean. We definitely will be back to stay at our beach...our magic beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us Sharon. I am sure the energy expended on the beach and the sound of the ocean helped your early riser sleep in. Hopefully you will get back sooner rather than later and enjoy another sleep in at your magic beach.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Whalers Retreat with our 2yr old son and 2 friends visiting from the UK. Beautiful property. Very well equipped with everything you could possibly need in a holiday home. Very well set up for a family with young children. Fantastic location with very easy access to the beach and local cafe. Very reasonably priced also. We will definitely return.
