We booked East Bedarra Island retreat based on the amazing reviews and pictures..... We were not disappointed and I can't speak highly enough of the retreat itself and the service we received from Sharon (manager) and Colin and Elaine (caretakers).

Whilst there were other houses on the hill behind us it was still really secluded and private and we had the beach all to...

We stayed at East Bedarra for our honeymoon in July, 2008. The retreat has been significantly updated since then. The caretakers were friendly, the gardens were colourful and the view was simply spectacular, especially during a sunset. The accommodation was rustic but that was part of the charm of the place. Unfortunately, at the time of our stay a home...
