Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely View and Great House Thanks so much for the lovely stay at Riley's! The house is terrific, great layout and really comfortable. Kitchen was perfect for a cook up and catch up with friends. A stroll around the bay on a glorious morning set the tone for an afternoon of lolling about on the veranda, bit of a scrabble tournament and a few wines. Sit back and watch the tide run. This house has everything you need for a relaxing comfortable get away and the host is FANTASTIC! Ray, you go that extra mile for your guests. Thanks so much, hope to come again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Relaxing Place to Stay We had a lovely relaxing holiday at Riley's Retreat for a week - could have stayed longer. This small dog friendly 3 bedroom accommodation is nicely presented, clean and the views from the balcony are wonderful - watch the tide come and go !!!. Really comfortable place - even on hot days. The pool table and board games got a lot of use. Barbeque on the deck was good too. Some excellent walks and beaches close by. We liked Putty Beach at Killcare which is patrolled and has a dog beach. We also found Kincumber was a great place for groceries and it has a good Indian restaurant. Hard to beat for the price and general location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We'll be back! For our annual holiday we chose Riley's Retreat as it ticked all our needs - dog friendly, secluded, clean, spacious and providing lovely views that constantly change with the tides. It is truly a lovely spot topped off by the tasteful and thoughtfully appointed house. Cooking and dining are a pleasure here and all day to day practicalities are no problem with many essential items thoughtfully supplied. Linen provided and beds made up on arrival is wonderful! Fabulous to have the two kayaks to really experience the water and do some fishing. Even if the weather had been bad we would have had plenty to do and watch (ie the view and DVDs). Our teenager was in heaven downstairs with the pool table and TV and has requested we book to come back. Seconded by Mum, Dad and the dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Away From Home What a lovely property! Such a beautiful view and very well equipped and comfortable. A great property to simply relax and recharge. Our little dogs had a wonderful time and enjoyed the little treats that were left for them. Ray thanks so much and we are hoping to visit now on a regular basis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We enjoyed staying at Riley's Retreat. It's a lovely house with a pool table that our son really loved using. Being able to get out on the water on the two kayaks was also fun. Hopefully we can stay longer than three nights next time!
