Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

6 of us had a family wedding to attend on the beach, and so we stayed at the Red Door retreat. It was beautiful. We were all blown away by the standard and quality of the house. So many beachy touches had been added and it was very well equipped. We would absolutely return.

Lovely cosy beach house

The home itself was open and bright and very comfortable. Had everything you could need and plenty of space. Deb was very helpful and even helped plan our weekend by suggesting beautiful wineries to go to! Would stay again and would definitely recommend to friends!

Weekend wedding

My family and I stayed for 2 nights at the RDR and can happily recommend the property. Great location, nice clean bedrooms and plenty of space. The lockable garage was perfect for my sisters new car. And they have Hookie in the backyard!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Red Door retreat for a few days over the Easter break ,we were pleasantly surprised with this property . The comments read modern, clean and well equipped ,things that are important to us when renting a holiday property . It was defiantly true to the previous comments, the owners of this property truly understand what guest need there was nothing that had not thought of to make your stay pleasant . Also Located in a lovely quiet street within minutes walking distance to shops , cafes, and the beach . Also I have to say the owners have great taste in decor everything including the prints on the walls the shells in glass vases,the magazines and books neatly stacked Available for guest to use . Thank you we will love to go back and recommend to friends .

Fabulous House

  • 5 of 5

We loved Red Door Retreat as the house was modern and very well equipped. I have never been in a place that actually had enough cutlery and dishes after meals! You still had dishes to use for the next meal if some were in the dishwasher. The cooking facilities were great and there was even some marinade for my beef strips and tomato sauce for my children who put it on everything!

The location is great. We walked to the beach and the supermarket and only used the car for going to Rosebud or other places to visit. It was quiet and there was enough room for everyone (we had 7 at one stage). The neighbours were good and many would say 'hello' when I went for my walk to get the newspaper. My only criticism is that you had to bring all your own linen. Otherwise, we loved it.
