Adrian Bekker purchased this House in 2007
Why Adrian Bekker chose Halls Gap
Lakuna Retreat was architecturally built to encompass, tactile building materials that reflect the ambient light around it during the day. Its very private but still allows guests to enjoy wide panoramic views of the mountain ridge from the main lounge dining area. The exquisite use of earthy timber internally and white walls allows for soft light to reflect around every room. So ambiance is a big deal! Even at night as your nestle into the cosy lounges soft side lamps create an amazing relaxing feeling. Top that with a large wood fire and you are home!
What makes this House unique
Privacy, Views, Wildlife, outdoor fire pit to cook marshmallows. Free red gum wood for the Coonara wood heater. Quality kitchen utensils. Top of the tree dishwasher, Comfy dining chairs to seat 8 persons. A nice bottle of red when you arrive!
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Grampians always amaze!
Anyone thinking of staying in the Grampians should book the Lakuna Retreat. It has plenty of amazing space and the design and setting was enjoyed by our small family for the short stay we had. We will certainly be coming back again and our boys are still talking about the trip (and the friendly wildlife).
The hosts left the property in an immaculate state. Thankyou for having us!
Everything we needed
Property was spacious, super clean and had everything you could need for a relaxing, fuss free stay.

Hi Heather. We appreciate your review of Lakuna Retreat and delighted to hear you had a most relaxing stay. Thanks for choosing to stay at Lakuna and we look forward to seeing you again at some time in the future. All the best. Regards Adrian and Corrie
Wonderful property. We were a family of six and this property had enough space for 4 teenagers and parents. Property is highly recommended.
Delightful and contemporary property
It should be four and a half stars but we can't see that option to select! The house was snug and very comfortable with everything we needed for our family of four. The kitchen was really well equipped to whip up a big feast with great pans, utensils and appliances. Lots of firewood for the Coonara. Electric blankets, comfortable beds and cozy bedrooms. A large bathroom with spa. There was an additional self contained room which we didn't need but very sweet if you have a bigger group. Lots of native birds and animals came to visit. It's overlooked by the grand Grampians with the Pinnacle right above you. Quiet setting off the Main Street but right opposite Brambuk Cultural Centre and super close to the town. Highly recommended!
Thanks Nadja for your review of Lakuna and we are delighted that you have had such a great time. Thanks for choosing Ellimata Holiday cottages, and we look for ward to maybe another visit in the future. Keep in touch. Regards Adrian and Corrie.
