Lanterns Retreat exceeded all our expectations. We'd read the reviews, of course, but they didn't really prepare us for the warmth of our welcome and the sense of being in a lovely home. We had a large, light, comfortable room, beautifully furnished. Doors opened out onto the front verandah and the garden/pool. The en suite was excellent, with full bath,...

A good, quiet location...short walk to the beach and town. Short drive to walks, surf beaches and wineries. Would definitely stay again if I...

We opted to stay 2 nights at Lanterns Retreat to attend a wedding at Erravilla Estate in the south west. Serge remembered us from a previous visit and was both a welcoming and intriguing host. He always has new and varied projects on the go from diving to building, music and art initiatives. The rooms are big and well appointed...

Perfect place for a couple to relax for 2 or 3 days. Comfortable and quiet, close to town but just far enough away. Serge, the host, goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. Excellent breakfast. We stayed for two nights, and considered changing our plans to stay an extra night just because it was so relaxing.

Every little detail had been thought through including; chocolates, make up removal, cotton tips, reviews of local restaurants completed by the host and a range of tea, coffee and biscuits.
