Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Marina Retreat, the house had everything we needed, the heating was excellent and plenty of entertainment for rainy days with multiple TVs and PlayStation for the kids. Location was good close to beach and shops and restaurants- Glenelg has everything. The Marina - a 10 minute walk- has great restaurants and a nice Oyster Bar. Would highly recommend.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We decided that the Marina Retreat Holiday Home would be a perfect place for a family get together to celebrate my mothers 90th birthday given that all of Glenelg,s attractions were all within easy walking distance , important because we were pushing Mum,s wheelchair . The house was ideal ,clean, well equipped and spacious .However we felt that a house catering for up to 6 people needed another shower and toilet ,and the memory mattress wasn,t very popular . Sian our host was extremely helpful and courteous in all our inquiries and during our stay . All in all we would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone seeking a relaxing ,comfortable place in beautiful surrounds.

Delightful Marina Retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house to spend a leisurely week's holiday. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful home away from home. Everything you could possibly need was thoughtfully provided, the delicious chocolates and local wine on arrival, the great coffee machine and so many other items...

all very much appreciated. The house is spotlessly clean, spacious and beautifully renovated with all modern bathroom, kitchen and dinning. So many areas to relax, the various living rooms or the outside BBQ and garden areas.

It was a pleasure to stay here, thank you Sian and Steve for making us feel so welcome in your "Marina Retreat".

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay in this beautiful cottage. Lots of room to spread out, quality facilities, thoughtful welcome pack, lots of magazines and DVDs. Sian is very friendly and thorough in explaining everything. The only downside for our group of 6 was one bathroom with no separate toilet.
