We,ve rented the big house with the spa with friends and kids. We've had a great time The place is super clean, cosy, and very well equiped. The house is pretty big and very comfortable: We were 9 people in the house and we did not feel packed at all. The huge balcony with the spa was the cherry on...

Enjoyed our stay here immensely. Brought a voucher through "groupon" wasn't sure what to expect but our expectations were exceeded. Management and staff were helpful and extremely pleasant. Kids loved seeing the visiting kangaroo, Josephine. And everyday of our stay we went koala spotting. Would highly recommend. Cosy and quiet. Grounds were tidy. And close to beach. Would not hesitate...

When we stayed here the weather turned bad but our cottage was cosy and warm. The wildlife came to visit us. It is located close to the wonderful beaches. Our hosts were out to make sure we missed nothing in our short stay and indicated a preferred list on a map. We did all the walks we could fit in...

The location was fantastic but when we arrived there was no gas bottle for the barbque, no extra towels as promised and no extra blankets if it turned cold. Well we are home now and there was no gas bottle, no extra towels and no extra blankets we were promised. They need to inform guests of drop toilets as it...

If my room would not be as dusty I would have given it a rating of "Excellent". Could not be bothered to mention it to the owners, since we only stayed a night. My room was so dusty that I had to sleep with my window and door open. Could be part of the eco experience. :) I am a...

spent 3 night at the Wanderers last week with the family. The location is excellent and the cottages very nice and cozy. At the check in we were given a lot of information about the area and the local "attractions" including the spot on location of nearby tree hosting a Koala (I found out that is not that simple to...

I stayed at Wanderers retreat with my partner for a weekend away and whilst the staff were extremely helpful and lovely the room left me feeling like I had been duped. The location is amazing however we ran out of hot water after just one bath and the hot water didn't return for the entire weekend. Our room was inundated...

I can't recommend the Wanderers Retreat enough. It is so perfect. It's in a beautiful location which is just a short walk to the beach, but in a beautiful secluded area surrounded by bush. It's only a short drive up to the Anna bay shops - and of course not far to drive to the other near by suburbs (Nelson...
