This brilliantly renovated 4 bedroom back beach retreat is the perfect spot for a truly relaxing getaway. It's an easy walk to the beautiful back beaches and also close to the village of Portsea, the Portsea Hotel and gentle bay beaches.
Beautifully and tastefully decorated throughout with all mod cons, there is a bright open plan living and dining area which includes an open fireplace, plasma TV with Foxtel and a fully equipped modern kitchen. This beautiful living area has huge glass doors opening onto a large, sunny deck and private fully fenced garden.
The lovely outdoor entertaining area and garden are totally secure for kids and pets.
There is also a huge outdoor spa.

Come to the Retreat, kick back and relax. It's very easy!

This delightful house has a king size master bedroom, 2 further queen size rooms and one room with 2 sets of bunks. The rooms are set out on opposite sides of the house so there are 2 bedrooms on each side with a shared bathroom between them. There is also a separate toilet and laundry.
(Please note there may be a $150 per stay spa charge at certain times of the year).

Just pack your bags and arrive!

At all of our properties at Great Accommodation we provide a lovely welcome hamper to get you started which includes tea, coffee, milk, and sugar.

Our recent stay @ The Retreat was wonderful.The home is spacious,well set out and comfortable. A huge kitchen bench,very comfortable beds and massive mirror(we would all love at home) gave us a relaxing few days to enjoy our daughter's wedding at the Portsea Hotel. We would definitely stay again, highly recommending this home to family and friends.

We had a fabulous stay at 'The Retreat' over the Australia Day Long Weekend. With 4 couples in tow we were pleasantly surprised that the layout provided space to spread out and gave each couple access to an ensuite. The decking and large outdoor setting was perfect for our many bbqs and sunbaking. Plus, it was only a 10min walk to the waves of the back beach or 15min stroll to the Portsea Hotel and bay. We'll defintiely be back.

The Retreat is a great house with all the creature comforts. The beds are comfy and the fireplace is a great feature for a Winter getaway. The spacioius kitchen and the day bed compliment this cozy retreat that can sleep up to 10.

My family and I stayed at The Retreat over the Mothers Day weekend and had the most relaxing and lovely time. The house is perfectly situated between the back and front beaches and has a great garden for children to run around in. I can totally recommend The Retreat if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Portsea.

Excellent property! Suited 10 adults for 3 nights and was close enough for a walk along the beach and a quick trip to Sorrento and the Portsea Pub. Also dog friendly which was great. Am recommending this property to friends!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great property to stay close to Portsea Golf Club. Property in great location to surrounding venues and back beach for walk. Overall cleanliness of property below average. We had to put all dishes and glasses through dishwasher before we started to eat and also a full sweep before we could enjoy our stay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great location but tired property This house is in a great location and is nice and open for a large family or two groups. The yard is excellent and fenced for the kids. Big bedrooms and a large kitchen and living area make this a relaxing place to stay. Our disappointment was with the condition of the house. It’s tired and needs some repairs and maintenance. The kitchen tap mounting is broken which makes it hard to use and there were a lot of light globes broken. Our biggest disappointment was with the cleanliness when we arrived. There was a layer of dust on everything when we walked in and the bed underclothing was well overdue for a wash. In the kitchen there were little bits of food on most of the crockery and cutlery such that we needed to wash things before we could make dinner. Most of the glasses and cups had to be washed before using them. The dryer in the laundry had a clogged lint filter and it hadn’t been cleaned for a long time. I’ll give credit to the cleaners as they offered to come and clean again on the first day. When I spoke to the agent they were defensive and suggested that given that it was in Portsea and sleeps 10 with a spa we should be happy. They did send us an electrician to replace the broken lights. The point I seemed unable to get across is that this should all be done before we arrived rather than being reactive and waiting for someone to complain before fixing things.
