My daughter and I went down to do some fishing, we stayed in a studio apartment straight across from the water, the place had everything we needed and was well equipped and very clean. We dealt with Kim, she was friendly and very helpful, we hired a tinny and had a fabulous time, thanks Kim. We will definitely be back!

I found this place after doing some searching for some budget friendly Glamping accommodation. What a great find. South Coast Retreat is located in a beautiful spot in Greenwell Point with nice walking paths and heaps of activities on offer. We were greeted by a friendly staff member and were checked in fast and easy. Our "room" for the night...

Loved South Coast Retreat! We had a studio overlooking the water which was well equipped, bright and immaculately presented. Added bonus was being able to take our dogs there. Simon, the manager is extremely helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back!

We stayed here over long Easter weekend. Very relaxing....the hosts were absolutely wonderful! Just one minute from the water. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would most definitely stay here again on our next visit. Thank you for everything. 😀

Cabin was perfect, right next to the water on a quiet street. Two fish and chip shops walking distance away. Friendly staff and free bike hire, DVD rental and coffee machine in reception. Will stay here again.

Stayed in the "Luxury Safari Tent" with a friend for 6 nights as a getaway holiday from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. Staff, especially Simon, was welcoming and offered plenty of helpful advice on what amenities and activities are available in the area. The retreat is conveniently located near the waters, cafes/restaurants, and only a short drive...

If ever you have turned down a potential night's stay because you didn't want to sleep in a caravan park cabin; perhaps a night here would change your mind forever. Situated at the hub of an idyllic part of the world with at least one first class restaurant nearby and a choice of terrific takeaway and café options, this establishment...

Dear janice m, Thank you so much for penning this detailed review. It's great that your cabin was perfect for you .... even if a dastardly fly did visit temporarily!! The BBQ area is a great place to hang out with friends and family and we are currently making it even nicer. Next time try using the fire pit outside...

We had a cabin over looking the water,coming from the Riverina, that was relaxing in itself. It was great for the dog and the cabin was clean and had everything we needed. We shall definitely return......... probably within the 12 month period and take advantage of the great 10% off offer!!

We had a one bed cabin looking over the water. Very modern bathroom and kitchenette and beautifully clean. The enclosed balcony was great for our dog. We were on our way down the coast for a birthday celebration so was the perfect location to have a break on the drive down from Sydney. We would thoroughly recommend south coast retreat....
