Perfect for chilling and relaxing by the sea!
Delightful property, our own piece of paradise, the sound of the waves a perfect empty beach for long walks with the dogs and great views from inside whilst we relaxed and did our thing. The house was set up for everything we could want in terms of living and sleeping spaces and everything possible for cooking up a storm, must stay longer next time to bake some bread and create our very own pizzas - but then thats what the local eateries are for!!
What a Location !
7 days of beautiful winter sunshine and magnificent Nine Mile Beach all to ourselves , The Retreat is THE perfect location to rest , relax and recharge. The views from upstairs are simply breathtaking and nights relaxing by the open fire were just devine ! Our four legged friend also loved exploring the gardens and the endless walks on the beach.... absolute bliss. Thank You for sharing your little piece of paradise Moira :-)
Thanks for your comments Robbyn, it is a great place to relax glad you enjoyed your stay!
Beautiful peaceful haven
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay for my birthday weekend. So peaceful and loads of space. Incredibly well equipped with everything you could need. My only suggestion would be it needs new pillows or take your own. Otherwise totally intend to return.
Glad you enjoyed your stay, there are really good pillows for each bed and lesser pillows for the "fancy" pillows just for the look - unfortunately they get swapped around depending who makes the beds up! I guess I need to get rid of them so ALL the pillows would be OK to sleep on. Thanks Moira :-)
Wonderful escape. Perfect location. Peace & harmony
