Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful holiday We absolutely loved our time at Hydeaway bay - one of our best family holidays by far. We all enjoyed the gorgeous beaches and searching for shells and crabs and whatever other treasures we came across. The house is perfectly set up with everything that you need, and we spent many hours relaxing out on the huge deck while the kids kicked the footy. We utilised the fishing rods, kayaks and volleyball net, but probably my favourite thing was the amazing sunsets every night - stunning. It is pretty far away from everything - which we knew and was one of the reasons why we chose to stay there as just wanted the kids to have some independence and freedom to explore the immediate area and not feel pressured to get out and see the sights (although it is not hard to do that if you do want to, with Airlie beach about 45 mins away). We organised a Woolies delivery on the first day which made things easy as there are no shops close by to duck to if you run out of bread :) Everything was spotless, the only exception being one of the toilet brushes in the bathroom which we had to throw out and get a new one, which was easily fixed and had no impact on our enjoyment of the property or holiday. I would highly recommend Gloucester retreat to anyone looking to get away from it all and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings - it really is glorious and I am already trying to work out when we might be able to come back - the kids were in absolute paradise, which meant we were too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sunsets - perfect location! My husband and I stayed here for a mini break over Anzac Day weekend. It was so quiet and secluded, with an amazing sunset every night. The bed & pillows were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with absolutely everything we needed; salt, pepper, oil, glad wrap, sauces etc. The beach was a very quick stroll away, but we were just happy to stay on the front porch or laze in bed and stare at the views from everywhere we relaxed. Excellent communication from the Owner. We will definitely stay again in the near future as we are not far away in Mackay.
