We stayed in Treetops which was part of the main building. Beautiful view with a firepit on a huge terrace. Wonderful ambience. Walk down the stairs and you were in the Restaurant and Bar area. Fabulous food all day especially when Dean Jones was cooking. Nice wines including Pol Roger Champagne. We hiked through the National Park each day after a delicious breakfast so we could enjoy lunch. It was a perfect short break worth every dollar.

The accommodation is just nice. Not special and not very well maintained – particularly outside areas. At this level I would have expected everything to be pristine. Service is casual charming but not coherent – many changes in people over a three day stay. Food was amazing but again multiple chefs and we did feel a limited choice might have been given. I don’t eat red meat so my only option of quail was a tad esoteric. But for high end travellers in Australia choices are limited which is why Pretty Beach House will always be on the radar. Simply not worth the money on any level.

Hi Fleetcat, Thank you for your feedback. It is always helpful and we appreciate it. Menus and dietaries are always a priority at Pretty Beach House to ensure each and every guest is properly catered for and looked after. It's a shame you did not tell us about your dietaries when we asked. We would have most certainly designed a menu to suit you. Safe Travels.

Hugely disappointing 2 night stay at pretty beach house and not worth the money. I am so surprised that the previous reviews have been so good as this was absolutely not our experience. Please read below the polite feedback I sent to the Pretty beach house team (and although we got a reply saying sorry, I was surprised we were not offered anything as compensation given in their reply they admitted the issues we encountered were not up to they normal high standards. You don’t pay $2,400 per night to stay in a dirty room filled with cobwebs and ants!) “We have just finished our 3 week Australia and New Zealand honeymoon and although we have had a lovely honeymoon because we didn’t let the PBH experience ruin it but it certainly didn’t enhance it. As mentioned to Geoffrey the property is not up to the standard we would have expected given the price charged. As you know we were nervous about making the trip to Sydney based on what we had heard in the UK news and although we were pleasantly surprised not to be affected at all by the bush fires, unfortunately, we now regret our choice to stay at PBH. We are not in the habit of complaining and thankfully over the years of travelling and staying in wonderful places we haven’t had much need to. I want the best places, great quality and the cost usually reflects that. The things like cobwebs hanging from the lights in the dining room and all round our room, the dirty sofa in our room, the stained pool chairs, the stained chairs on our balcony, the swimming pool cleaner being left in the pool even though it was never turned on, no offer of a pool towel when sitting by the pool, the ants everywhere especially round by our plunge pool so you couldn’t sit there, no extra effort or acknowledgement that we were on honeymoon and not even the smallest effort to make the house Christmassy - there was no attention to detail. My one priority was to go for the best and have a luxurious and memorable trip - the room was none of those things and as I said  I was looking forward to going home which was never a sentiment I felt in the any of the other  beautiful lodges and hotels we have stayed in during our trip.   It is a shame that the property was not up to standard, especially given the food was delicious and the staff lovely, but hopefully after some changes it will be for others who stay there in the future. We have family planning on a similar trip to New Zealand and Australia next year and unfortunately I could not recommend PBH to them. I appreciated Geoffrey apologising but it’s a shame they were so many excuses for making them.”

Hi Emily, Thank you for your feedback. As you know, we are surrounded by the bush, beach and water so the elements can certainly damage and tarnish our beautiful property. The team do an incredible job in maintaining it daily and we apologise if this was not to your expectations.

This place is perfect. You should know what you're getting since the price is steep (I know others have said too steep, but I believe it is just right for what this is) - is this a luxury resort for every kind of traveler, no. Is this an oasis of calm and quiet and relaxed luxury, absolutely. Prepare to escape the world to a place where time doesn't exist, you can have anything you want, and you are alone in peace. Upon arriving, you enter a gorgeous house with a beautiful view and pool, though I'd recommend staying in one of the two standalone rooms for the true solitude. Do not expect all the extensive amenities of a five star mega resort, but you don't go to PBH for that - you go to escape in the most luxurious way possible. We spent 2 days here and it felt like we were there for a week. From the smoking ceremony to the extensive meals (the food is great, and I highly suggest asking to sit near the chef one night to chat and hear more) to the drinks to the hike to the beach to the time spent reading on your deck listening to records to the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, enjoy the solitude, as there are so few places in this world that can offer this kind of experience. Truly amazing, can't wait to go back.
