Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truely a wonderful place It is difficult not to overstate this beautiful, charming house. The 4 of us were so happy with our stay here. Our expectations were very much exceeded. I would very much like to acknowledge the effort of the owners to model this charming property to the exact description that we read online, which was the reason we chose to stay here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A scenic way to start the year We stayed 7 nights and had such a wonderful time. Our intention was to spend our days at Hyams Beach, which was 5 minutes around the corner, and nights at the restaurants in Huskisson, which were 10 minutes down the road. Retro at the Bay was situated in a perfect location. My daughter enjoyed watching the local kangaroos and lorikeets visit the house. The tranquillity of the surroundings was perfect for our early morning prayers and reading of scripture. The house was very cosy with a range of DVDs and vinyl records to choose from. There were a plethora of antique toys for children to play with, including an old typewriter. My wife and I kicked back, each evening, and enjoyed reading some of the vintage magazines and books. The owners were extremely friendly and prompt when responding to our questions. I highly recommend this place for families who want a quiet and relaxing stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A place to create special memories Our family had a fabulous time staying at the Retro. It certainly is a step back in time and we especially loved playing the records. The kangaroos came right up to the steps and at night time we could see the kangaroos jumping around the street. Used the weber one night for a bbq. Very clean accomodation and and owners very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back. Highly recommend.
