Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic spot! We had a great time at the Retro Shack. It had everything we needed for our long weekend away and is ideally placed a few blocks from the beach and within an easy drive of McLaren Vale and the southern suburbs of Adelaide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cool We stayed 2 nights and the only problem was, it wasn't long enough! Great location, everything you would need and love the styling. Well done guys : )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Awesome and we will be going back... The tagline "50s Retro by the Beach" couldn't be more accurate. A stone's throw from the Aldinga Beach, walking distance to restaurants and takeaway food, not to mention a really great pet food shop and in a really quiet peaceful area of Aldinga. The retreat has absolutely everything you need to get away and have a great time. Tons of books and old magazines to check out, a huge pile of DVD movies, Xbox games and a massive garden for the dog/kids to play in as well as the beach. The garden is secure and our dog absolutely loved it there. The whole place has a really nice retro feel with plenty of genuine 50s memorabilia, we stayed an extra day and plan to go back soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stay We spent 4 nights at the retreat and it ticked all the boxes. Great backyard for our two very energetic dogs to run about when we were to lazy to explore the great beaches. We particularly loved the retro feel and the great choices of music in that era. It was a very quiet area with everything in walking or driving distance. Loved our visit and recommend it to anyone
