No real facilities, no one to greet or show you to your accommodation, run down old caravan to sleep in, smelled damp and musty. I couldn’t stay in it and so told the owners, non the less they still charged me full rate of $117. Disgusted. Would not recommend to anyone

Peacefully and tranquil. Clean and most things available. Not sure about the composting toilet and limited drinking water only at specified taps which makes the daily tariff seem expensive for what you get. This Bush Retreat is far from services. Make sure you take in your provisions from the major centres as limited shops and no reception facilities. Overall expensive for what you get.

Yes we are peaceful. We are not on town water or sewer and we are adjacent to a sensitive coastal lake so composting toilets (some cottages) help us minimise waste water disposal. We have unlimited drinking water in all cottages but we do use treated dam water for showers etc. Distances are relative...most people consider local shops etc only 5km away and town 20km away to be close, not "far".

Great bush location, close to beach and national p

Pros: Cleanliness and quality of accommodation, great location.
Cons: No
Location: walks in NP and adjoining beaches. Great towns of Milton and Ulladulla to visit.
Very enjoyable, private and relaxing spot, close to towns and services.

"ONE THE BEST" places on the south coast

The moment we arrived till we had left the retreat. Had enjoyed every minute of of here. Home away from home but coastal lifestyle. 10/10 self contained for relaxation and beautiful bush spot. Everything is only mins away if you need a quick stop at the shops or a coffee too ect.. Amazing for our fur child "Juce". Customer service was 110% excellent. We shall definitely book again soon.

Oysters cottage plus 2 dogs

Great for dogs with tiled floors & floorboards although dogs asked not to be on "furniture" or annoy other guests, thought comment "$50 charged for any pickup needed after your stay" more of a penalty than a fee, guests need to feel welcome even if traveling with dogs. Compost toilet made me feel a little uncomfortable but nice to walk around the grounds with dogs.

OK , good point re dogs. We have never charged anyone for dog poo pickup. That probably has nothing to do with the $50 scare so it goes..

Nice accommodation but their prices are high

I have been staying at their accommodation for 7 years Over the years not much is changed in terms of what they offer, however their prices keeps increasing Last stay for us, we can get better offers else where and our cabin was not peaceful at all Their laundry and cleaning supply store was attached to our accommodation and at least 10 staff cars driving in and out all day long

A beautiful quiet and relaxing getaway.

Pros: The staff were accommodating and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble.
Location: Lots of things to do and see nearby. Mogo was lovely to visit. Short drive to Batemans Bay and Ulladulla. Beautiful bush walking tracks.
We arrived and were greeted warmly. In our cottage the fire was going and the cottage was already cozy. We had a lovely wander around the property which was beautiful with lots of wildlife. Our cottage was clean and well set up and we loved the huge bookshelf full of books in the loft upstairs. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back again. Thank you so much for a wonderful mini break.

Not as good as it looks

Room is nice from outside. Inside is ok. Dirty in some areas. A lot of cobwebs around. Carpet in the bedroom is very dusty. Toilet is a compost toilet, which is uncomfortable for some people. Should be mentioned in the accomodation details. View is good and it was quiet. Wifi was not working. Bill, the owner, tried to fix it and reset the wifi range extender but still didnt work. I appreciate the effort Bill made, but wifi availability was one of the reason we chose this accomodation. What made it worse is that phone signal (even Telstra) was very weak (close to none) inside the cottage we were in. At check out, Bill offered to refund $40 (cost for my dog for 2 nights) to compensate the troubles. Have not seen this come in my credit card, but may take few days. In short, beautiful scenery, quiet area, cottage was ok, need to be cleaned up properly, compost toilet should be mentioned, wifi needs fixing. Bill, the owner/host, was accomodating though and put effort to fix the issue.
