AFFORDABLE LUXURY COASTAL ACCOMMODATIO

where the forest meets the sea

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ADVENTURE or just PURE RELAXATION

Dreaming of a glorious holiday away from your hectic, busy lifestyle? Maybe the thought of trading your noisy, bustling environment with the peace and tranquility of an exclusive, luxury retreat that offers the choice of adventure, relaxation or both tempts you? Perhaps, coastal accommodation surrounded by temperate rain-forest, spotted-gum woods and fresh, blue ocean appeals? If so, then the comfortable, stylish and serene 'Longbeach Clifftop Retreat', perched up high on a natural forested cliff, overlooking beautiful Batemans Bay might just be the perfect holiday destination for you and your loved ones. Time spent at our spacious Apartments and Guest Suites will have you kicking-off your shoes, letting-down your hair and making yourself at home in no time.

<P>

TAKE TIME to SMELL the ROSES

We do have roses to smell, amongst many other things to do, feel, see and hear throughout your stay! Our guests delight in the discovery of unspoilt, beautifully secluded coastal habitats, pristine beaches and interesting craggy coves that are ideal for swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, rock-pool exploration and fishing. Maybe enjoy playing with the family dog or just feel the sand between your toes and take a photo or two. All this, in just a few minutes' walk down the track from your private accommodation at 'Longbeach Clifftop Retreat'.

<P>

REVITALISE YOUR MIND, BODY, SOUL

Immerse yourself in the stillness of the natural bush-setting that surrounds 'Longbeach Clifftop Retreat' and revitalise your senses with the birdsong, fresh sea-breezes & natural aromas. Experience abundant wildlife, such as kangaroos grazing near to the clifftop property and perhaps, a sea-eagle or two gliding on the ocean-air, while dolphins play in the bay below. Whales can also often be seen a little further along the coastline during the winter months.

<P>

LUXURY, COASTAL HOLIDAY DESTINATION

The sea-side town of Batemans Bay is just a ten minute drive south of 'Longbeach Clifftop Retreat' and offers many fine restaurants, cafes, clubs, shopping outlets, bowling greens, golf course and much more. The weather is warm in summer, mild in winter and water sports of all kinds are offered most of the year round, as is the fresh seafood from the Clyde River and ocean beyond. The Eurobodalla region boasts many visitor attractions for all ages, including the wonderful Mogo Zoo, boutique wineries and local arts and crafts but perhaps the jewel in the crown is the magnificent 'Murramarang National Park and Marine Park', which is a big hit with bush-walkers, photographers and water-babies alike, and is situated almost at our garden gate. Don't forget your camera!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The studio offers everything one needs for a comfortable and enjoyable stay: it is freshly renovated and immaculately clean, the mattress is new and allows a good rest, there are plenty of right types of dishes for cooking and serving, smart TV, among other inclusions. The location is perfect as it is close to Longbeach and Maloney beach. On top of everything, Jaki and Kim are outstanding hosts., Jaki has shown us her garden and offered us fresh organic herbs that we used to make a few yummy dishes. The highlight of our stay was a drive and picnic in the forest that Jaki and Kim organised. On that occasion we were accompanied with their quirky and amazingly smart dog Ziggy who entertained us during the picnic. This has been one of the best stays we have ever had. Highly recommended - you won’t regret it!

We stayed at the moonlight cottage. The hosts are lovely and very helpful. The cottage is modern and spotless with a warm and cosy feel - very comfortable and well maintained. The location is quick walk to the beach and not far from town which is convenient - will be back again soon!

Just a few nights exploring the Batemans Bay Area. The studio is well provided . New kitchen and plenty of kitchen utensils. Bed was comfy .lovely and clean . Tea and coffee provided. The studio does not have a view and it’s quite dark but we spent most of our time out and about.

My wife and I made a booking for 2 weeks over the festive session in late 2020/21. The property is advertised as a studio apartment when it's actually a crudely converted garage. No working shower for first 48 hours, electrical circuitry regularly shorted, stained towels. Bed and other furniture incredibly uncomfortable too. To rub salt in the wounds, we had to leave 6 nights earlier than planned due to a Vic Government COVID19 border closure. Owner Jaki outright refused any refund linked to either early departure or poor accommodation. To put that in context, we were charged $5,150 for the 2 week stay. Massively over priced for a converted garage! Based on the experience and unwillingness of the owner to compromise we'd highly recommend any potential guests avoid booking with this property.

Spent a couple of nights with the family early 2015 in the Moonrise studio. The studio has an open plan: bedroom/living room and kitchen combined in 6x6 meters. It is perfect for two, but we managed well with four persons.
Whwn it comes to furniture, everything is well maintained. The kitchen has all you need for cooking, including complimentary spices and fresh herbs in the garden..

We spent 5 nights in early January 2014 in the lovely stellar suite of the Sunset apartment in Longbeach Clifftop Retreat. It was very comfortable and spacious and the balcony leading from the lovely airy lounge has superb views and is a great place to sit. Jaki was warmly welcoming and very helpful. The location is great with its easy access to the beach and with a wealth of fun things to do in the area. Lots of choices of wonderful beaches and amazing walks. Jaki helped us with suggestions for local activities and we enjoyed exploring the surrounding area. We had such a great time and a really relaxing break in very comfortable surroundings, with little added touches of luxury which were enjoyed and appreciated. We were delighted with our choice of accommodation.

Fantastic location - short drive to Long Beach or Maloney's Beach (for your morning coffee!), beautiful bushland out the back of the property with a fairly easy (but steep) walk down to the off-leash dog beach. Jaki offers a wealth of knowledge on the local area and is more than happy to help. The accommodation is in a quiet area, very comfortable with high quality linens on the bed (if you opt to have the bed made) and great pillows. Block out blinds and curtains meant it was easy to sleep in each morning. Everything you need in the kitchen and a full size fridge to make it an easy weekend away.

We had a great time at Jaki's. The location is amazing and it was a very good place to relax after a long day kayaking. Jaki was a very kind host with lots of local knowledge. The apartment was very spacious for a couple and would be a great location for a small group.

A very well equipped and roomy studio apartment. We loved having our dog with us for our holiday and felt he was made very welcome. Jaki was incredibly welcoming and showed us all the local walks etc from the apartment. The studio was very clean and we always felt we could ask if we needed anything. The location of this studio is perfect for anyone wanting to explore the south coast or even for a quiet retreat. It is very close to Batemans bay amenities but in a lovely quiet area on the clifftop. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Jaki.

Six of us (one couple and four friends) stayed for a week over the Christmas holiday period. Our focus was to have a quiet and relaxing time together and enjoy the beaches and nature around Batemans Bay. Jaki's place was perfect for this – the home was comfortable, spacious enough for us, and adequately equipped to enjoy time together at home (eg. playing board games, relaxing on the balcony, watching a movie..) and conveniently located to easily enjoy the surrounding natural beauty, whether from our balcony (awesome views and surrounded by trees), on foot (over the back fence to a beautiful quiet beach on the bay) or a short car trip (to surf beaches near Durras or on the south side of the bay). Jaki's place was good value for money and met our requirements perfectly. We also found it easy to cook meals together at home. Jaki was very helpful and welcoming throughout our stay and communication before and during our stay was a breeze.
