About the property

For those holidaymakers looking for reasonably priced accommodation for just one night's stay 'Forster Garden Retreat' is just what you have been looking for. From $90.00 a night in low season, including continental breakfast, for two persons we believe our tariffs are very 'holiday friendly'.

Fully self-contained, continental breakfast provisions, central location, quiet neighbourhood, own entrances front and rear and dog-friendly on request. No need to bring linen and bath towels - they are provided for you. A very convenient stopover for those travelling up or down the coast.

Located at the top of a hill in the area of Forster known as Angler's Paradise means that beaches, lake, Aquatic Centre, golf course, restaurants, cafes, bowling club and services club are all only 2 minutes' drive away, as is the new Stockland shopping centre. It is a very quiet family neighbourhood.

At 'FORSTER GARDEN RETREAT' you will have the ground floor apartment to yourself with separate entrances front and rear. There is one bedroom with a double bed and a built-in wardrobe. There is a shower-room (older style) with a toilet off it. In your own private living area there are two very comfortable armchairs and an entertainment unit with a LCD TV. There is a dining table inside as well.

(Please note that the owner lives upstairs. She will welcome you and answer any questions that you may have about Forster or the local area but after that shall respect your privacy.)

A lovely flat grassy backyard is a pleasant place to relax after a hard day at the beach... An undercover balcony and a large leopard tree means that there is plenty of shade. As the yard faces north-west it receives the sun most of the day.



Bedroom : 1 X DOUBLE BED

Bedlinen is supplied as well as bath towels and a bathmat. Please bring your own beach towels or they may be hired for $6.00 each per stay.

There is an entertainment unit with a television. Two comfortable armchairs mean that you can relax after a long day travelling or, even better, on the beach.

Free wi-fi is also available.


A selection of cereals, bread, spreads, tea, coffee, milk is supplied so that you can make your own breakfast. This is included in the nightly rental tariff.

NB: There is no kitchen in FORSTER GARDEN RETREAT but there is a microwave oven as well as a kettle, a toaster and a bar fridge. Cutlery and crockery is supplied. (Please see photos)

There is a dining table and chairs.


We know that many people travel with their beloved fur babies. We are happy to accommodate dogs over twelve months of age. Please contact us directly to discuss younger dogs staying. The yard is fully enclosed and secure, with an undercover area for protection from the sun and rain. Dogs are permitted inside but not on the furniture and they are not to be left inside the apartment when you are not there. We also ask that you bring your dog's own bedding so that they may feel at home. Please note that if you wish to stay with your dog you must request this on booking and forward us a copy of your dog's current vaccination papers. Dogs should be treated for ticks and fleas and must be clean on arrival.



There is off-street parking for one or two vehicles.

LOCATION: 43 Surfview Avenue, Forster

PLEASE NOTE: This garden apartment is set up for two persons only.

SINGLE NIGHT SUPPLEMENT: We welcome one night stays but please note that there is a $20.00 supplement for those wishing to stay for just one night.

Very happy with my stay at Forster Garden. Booking was a breeze. The welcome on arrival was fantastic, the rooms very tidy and homely, and a very generous breakfast selection!

The back yard was perfect for our dog, with plenty of space for him to explore. Close to town, just a short drive away, and also to 1 mile beach. Will stay again.
