This lovingly restored 1960's home has been furnished and decorated take evoke memories and transport guests back in time. Entering the house invariably prompts exclamations such as "This is just like my Nan's house was.", "I remember those!" or "We had one just like that!". This is a house to be lived in and enjoyed. The open plan indoor/outdoor living spaces provide the perfect environment to relax and unwind.

Located in the quiet village of Erowal Bay on St George's Basin, the house is perfectly located to take advantage of all the natural beauty and activities of the Jervis Bay area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great holiday house Very clean and well presented. Retro at the Bay is well equipped, has a great little play/TV room as well as comfortable and fun living room. We loved the nostalgia trip, the kangaroos on the lawn in the morning, and the generous front verandah.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful space This is a fun and wonderful place to stay at Erowal Bay. Aside from its meticulous art deco furnishings, the house is fully equipped with all things to prepare for serious meals, bbq, and fun gatherings. We will certainly return to do more bushwalking tracks and laze around the white sandy beaches. The place is well cared for and spotless for the next visitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming, comfortable and lovely We had a gorgeous stay at Retro at the Bay, although much colder in those parts than I'd expected... I wished I had my slippers! An incredible collection of furniture and appliances - all authentic retro, in working order (!) and/or refitted to work, like the old style TV with digital stations. Gorgeous! Kangaroos bounced through the garden and hopped down the street. The house is comfy and cosy and full of character. We had a lovely time.
