Unique, private and ultra exclusive, Mt Hay Retreat is a boutique escape that is second to none. With only 5 individual suites in total, each is filled with natural light and has been designed as your own private escape. Dominated by breathtaking views and offering a secluded and peaceful sanctuary well away from the cares and complexities of contemporary life, Mt Hay Retreat is still only minutes from the heart of world famous Berry Village. Refined, spacious and luxuriously understated, each of our five suites have been appointed with the finest of finishes. With king sized beds, kitchenettes, expansive living areas and an intuitive design that encourages seamless indoor/outdoor living. Each residence includes a generous private deck with a feature outdoor bath, complete with individual private gardens and views that stretch uninterrupted across the landscaped grounds and nearby countryside of Berry to the sparkling ocean. There is also a 33 meter indoor heated pool and spa. Serenely set on 360 acres against the majestic backdrop of Broughton Head, this magnificent property is a working farm embraced by native bushland and lush green pastures. With views that stretch uninterrupted across the rolling hills of the South Coast and beyond to the distant ocean horizon, Mt Hay Retreat is a lifestyle destination of rare distinction.

Purchased as a gift for my parents who loved it. My parents got the date wrong and the owner / manager very kindly let us reschedule on the day they were due to arrive with no fee - very rare to find such kindness and understanding - thank you!

AMAZING! We booked the 3-night decadence package and everything was perfect. They have thought of every detail and we wanted for nothing. King bed, enormous bathroom with rainshower, huge sofa for watching TV, a lovely kitchenette for cooling our champagne, cheeses, and choc-covered strawberries :-). The outdoor terrace is enormous and had comfy outdoor lounge chairs and the BEST thing is the deep bathtub for two - we enjoyed the uninterrupted countryside views out to Gerroa and beyond! It is so tranquil, we noticed the other guests only by their cards in the carpark, and it was a truly relaxing and lovely stay. Don't miss the wonderful 25-metre heated indoor pool and hot tub - all enclosed from the elements so perfect any time of year. The retreat is approx 5 minute

We spent three nights at Mt Hay to celebrate my 50th birthday. Mt Hay is luxurious accomodation just minutes out of Berry. With just 5 suites you really feel like you have the place to yourselves. We stayed in The Big Blue which was spectacular! A very comfortable king bed, huge rainfall shower with great pressure and floor to ceiling windows that frame glorious sunrises. The landscaping is fantastic, beautiful grounds to walk around - feeding the koi, swinging over the escarpment and admiring the view right out to the ocean. The pool and sauna area is great. You really never want to leave! Anthony and Louise are very welcoming and there if you need anything. My only suggestion would be an area with a BBQ and fire pit. We really didn’t want to leave for meals but with very

My husband and I recently stayed at Mt Hay for our “honeymoon at home”. I can’t thank Anthony & Louise enough for such a beautiful stay. We stayed in The Big Blue room. The bathtub on the balcony was divine, the bed was amazingly comfortable and the walk in rain shower was awesome. We loved exploring the grounds as well, feeding the Koi pond and having a good on the big swing, so beautiful. The best part was just relaxing and taking in the views over berry and out to the coast. The sunrise in the morning was absolutely stunning. A very quick drive into Berry for anything you need. Some great local cafes and dinner spots. What an amazing stay and a great way to end our honeymoon tour of the south coast. 😍
