We recently visited the Beach retreat for a friends birthday weekend... with children. The layout and space was fantastic and, with a large catering style kitchen, it lent itself perfectly to cooking for parties/groups. The bedrooms were comfortable and both with ensuite, waterfall showers and jacuzzi bath, which was a bonus! Extra single rooms would be ideal for older children....

Management response:

Thanks so much Amy for those kind words. We’re so pleased you and your friends had a great time. As it happens we are adding more bedrooms so next time you come we’ll be in a much better position to cater for a larger group. Thanks again for staying. Sunny regards Karl, Kerry and Louise
