Accommodation presented with love and thought

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Venus Bay was met with ordinary weather but it didn't matter because Drew's Beach Retreat was so comfortable that we were happy to just hang out there. The cabin is impeccably clean - to the point that we felt bad for creating any mess! The host has put a lot of thought into what makes a stay away just a bit more pleasurable. The extra technology was fantastic and we made good use of the movies stored on the system. It was totally unexpected and such good value for the money - I would highly recommend staying here for a couple or small family - the effort put into the place deserves appreciation. Thank you Drew!

Wonderful holiday rental!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely beach house! It has everything you could possibly need and more! We are movie buffs so having movies available to watch was really great! The complimentary wine was also a thoughtful touch. The place is clean, tidy and very well equipped. It was our first visit to Venus Bay, we'd definitely like to go back and Drews Beach Retreat is where we'd choose to stay! Thank you for providing a comfortable break :)
