No more Caravan Park for us! This is a holiday!
We had booked this property ahead of time to share with the family, unfortunately, at the time the family could not get time off work, so we decided to take the house anyway - just the two of us. This place is gorgeous! So close to Horseshoe Bay and Port Elliot and all the restaurants and attractions of the fleurieu, why would anyone want to stay in a caravan park? You have the peace and quiet of this property with a huge expanse of garden and plenty of living area in the house.
Great for a few families or a group of friends. The only problem being - who gets the gorgeous bedroom upstairs with the bath. Fortunately we didnt have that problem and enjoyed it immensely! The owners went above and beyond - leaving a gift of a bottle of Bird in Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir, Mahalia Coffee, Fresh Flowers and local Olive Oil. Very generous!
The House was spotlessly clean and we walked to Port Elliot every day. There is not much you need to take - take Shampoo and Body Wash (we didnt) Linen is supplied, so your only need your food and you. I think this would work out just as cheap as a couple of cabins in a caravan park for 2 families (and 100% better!)
I'm also very pleased it's not pet friendly as being a family with allergies to pets - we particularly look for that.
We will book it again for our group of friends or for the family. Beautiful House!

We really enjoyed our stay at Port Elliot Retreat. There was plenty of space for 2 families. It was very peaceful and everything had been thought of. May even stay again some day and would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Beautiful house in a fantastic location
A beautiful, clean, modern house in a fantastic location. We stayed for a weekend with another family - four adults and four children - and there was still plenty of room for two more! We were lucky enough to land the amazing upstairs master suite; complete with the incredible bath you can see on the property photos.
The whole weekend was so relaxing. Everyone seemed happy to hang out in the house, visit the local alpacas and play in the HUGE garden (with swing ball, table tennis etc. all kindly provided). The Port Elliot grocery store, chicken shop and cafÃ© supplied all we needed to enjoy some great meals. We were spoilt for choice with the option to use the fully equipped kitchen or the Weber. No one had any complaints cooking a barbecue with such an incredible view from the balcony.
There were some lovely touches, including fresh flowers and local goodies. The efficient, pleasant and prompt e-mail communication we had with the owners, Damien and Carly, ensured a 5 star experienced.

Amazing Property 5 Starts *****
The property was immaculate and the owners have gone to great lengths making sure their clients (us) were looked after with five star service. The property is perfect for families that want a relaxing getaway out of the city. We loved the views and the secluded environment. Thanks for having us. *****
