Beautifully compact and extremely well appointed. Kitchenette very generously equipped. Every inch has been wonderfully used for our comfort and pleasure. AND the peace and quit so tranquil with a magnificent view.

I loved that this place was exactly the retreat it’s name suggests and there was no unnecessary intrusion from the owners or staff. The 4km drive in from the road was perfect for setting the tone of what to expect in terms of quiet and remove from the tourist throng. Wallabies and echidna were a welcome bonus!

Rather cramped

Pros: Proximity to family we were visiting.
Cons: Value for the price! Have enjoyed a lot more and paid a lot less in Oz and overseas.
Location: Coles Bay is an amazing region that all should visit. It is a truly beautiful place.
Facility explanations in the room were very good. Kitchenette supplies, equipment and utensils were very adequate for food preparation. Getting out and back into car at front gate at each arrival and and each departure was very annoying. Studio rooms are very small/cramped ....definitely not up to 4 star accommodation. Very very full price for what was on offer.

I note that you booked on the 21 Jan for the nights of the 27 & 28th January, so that the choice in the area would have been limited and our larger cabins were already booked. However, we do explain in our marketing exactly what to expect, so if what was available did not suit you, then perhaps you should have allowed yourself more time to research and book your accommodation. Had you done so, then you would have discovered that, whilst the whole of Freycinet is expensive, due to limited supply and the extreme popularity of the area, our prices are in fact about two thirds of those being charged by other similar local establishments. The gate at the entrance of the property is designed to ensure that guests are not disturbed by motorbikes that would otherwise roam around the area, and probably be more annoying than the minor inconvenience of opening and shutting the gate on arrival and departure. We would take exception to your comment that we are not up to a four star accommodation rating considering we provide a high end fit out with, amongst other things, pillow top king beds, underfloor heating, fast wifi with smart TV's and an amazing view. We might be small, but we believe that we are perfectly formed!

The best views

Stayed in a studio which had everything we needed, clean and modern. Loved staying here - it exceeded my expectations. Surrounded by nature, peaceful, great views of the ocean, and close to the walking trails in the Freycinet National Park.

A must visit if staying in Freycinet

Pros: Loved the studio we stayed in, super comfortable bed, the location is magnificent, the rooms are self contained
Location: The Wineglass Bay to Hazards Beach circuit walk is a must
We loved staying here. Magnificent position looking out over the ocean, really cosy comfortable rooms. So peaceful. Loved waking up in the morning looking out over the bay and sitting on the balcony at night looking at the stars. We would stay here again.

Amazing Location

Pros: Location, amenities within the room
Fell in love with this place. Quiet, peaceful, great views. Facilities within the room are superb! Cannot recommend this establishment highly enough. The first night we sat on the balcony for two hours just listening to the surf and the forest sounds.
