Comments from our guest book:

"What a fantastic spot - thank you! We had such an amazing time - really appreciated the beauty of the view, the surroundings and comforts of the Retreat...."
"This quiet place with the sounds of birds, overlooking the water, with the sand dunes in the distance, was perfect for our weekend break. We loved the kayak trip to the southern ocean and walking though natural bushland was great. The Retreat is perfect..."
"What a wonderful place! Comfortable and so relaxing. A great view. Lovely to just sit and watch the bird life, frogs in the pond in the evening, and the water.... We even enjoyed the strong winds and rain when we were cosy by the fire...."
".... Loved the parade of pelicans and swans morning and night over the water; saw an eagle and Nankeen Kestrels and enjoyed the honeyeaters' songs."
"A great place to stay with a large range of things to do and see ...."
"A fantastic location and beautifully equipped home - only wish I could have stayed longer..."
"You have named this place correctly - Retreat! The house is perfect. The location serene. This morning a kangaroo bounded across the grassy verge, as we had a 'cuppa' watching the white caps."
"We had a wonderful cosy weekend in front of the fire. 42 Mile Crossing and the walks around there were beautiful. Lovely location."
"Fantastic - too short" "We would love to stay for longer next time" "... always too short" "Next time we will stay longer".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Restful Retreat! Thank you so much to Wendy and team for an amazing getaway. The retreat was exactly what I was looking for to wind down for a few days away from the daily 9-5. The house was immaculate and fully appointed. I couldn't rate it more highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful, relaxing hideaway We had a wonderful long weekend at Coorong Waterfront Retreat, the house was immaculate and every detail was thought of! With amazing views of the Coorong, we sat in front of the fire watching the birds fly by and the sun setting in the evening. This place exceeded our expectations on every level - we would highly recommend a visit.
