Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic holiday house and beautiful location! A gorgeous home, spacious with incredible views out to Encounter Bay and The Bluff. We were blown away from the moment we stepped in. Easily accommodates a family - we were lucky, we had the whole place to ourselves! Great base to explore the Fleurieu Peninsula - with Victor Harbor on your doorstep, Goolwa & Port Elliot a short drive. Highly recommend The Bluff Retreat for anyone looking for a seaside getaway - any time of the year.
