With fabulous water views looking towards the north, The RETREAT is an opulent, no-expenses-spared, resort-style duplex on Dutchmans Beach. For those who don't already know, Dutchies is renowned as the most beautiful beach in Port Stephens and, being a bay beach, it's relaxing for adults and safe for young children.

From this magnificent apartment, it's just a short stroll along the beautiful foreshore pathway, past the Marina and into the vibrant heart of Nelson Bay.

We stay at a lot of different properties on family holidays. Dutchman's Retreat was definitely a standout. The property itself was well set out with plenty of room for 4 people. The location was superb and we really enjoyed the 10 minute walk along the coastal path into Nelson. Dutchman's beach is beautiful and the view of this from the house is fantastic. We will be visiting again!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
The Retreat was amazing. The photos definitely resemble the apartment and they have taken all care to ensure there is everything you need to have a comfortable stay. It is right across from Dutchies Beach which is beautiful and a really nice 10 minute walk into Nelson's Bay. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
The Retreat was everything we expected and more. Everything is set up for the occupants to have the best possible stay. Particularly through the enquire/booking process, the owners were prompt and friendly. The house is absolutely spectacular, especially the pool area which is just magnificent. Beautiful beaches, restaurants and supermarkets are all within walking distance. I would definitely recommend the offer that the Retreat offers of attending the Imagine Cruises. A great experience. Overall, the most wonderful stay and at an even more wonderful place.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
The Retreat is a great property in a superb location. It contains a beautiful large bathtub, water view balcony and all the modern conveniences you would expect from a property of this type. You have the choice of swimming at the white sandy beach, which is about 100m away, or enjoy some privacy in the property pool and outdoor lounge area.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
