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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great Family Stay
We stayed 3 nights it was everything we needed. The accommodation was great kitchen with everything you need, Bathroom with washing machine and dryer bath/shower, 2 bedrooms loft style with wall divider with doors on each and Queen beds and a sunroom other bedroom has bunk beds, Lounge room was very comfy along with a beach theme dining area, great backyard for pets and guests can enjoy relaxation and bbq area also. Accommodation had a very homely feel. Any questions just msg them and they are very quick at getting back to you. Wi fi worked great. I will be recommending this place our stay was great. Location was also great walking distance to beach, iga, Bakery, Take away shops. We visited Mogo Zoo, Batemans Bay, and due to cloudy weather we cancelled our beach day instead had taken a drive to Tilba.

Best break in a long time
Quiet and central location. Family and pet friendly, my kids had seperate rooms and our dog really enjoyed his first holiday. The house is like a home away from home. We settled within minutes

SOOOO easy!
This is my fifth year staying at the retreat and there is a reason we go back. In no particular order here are the reasons why!! Its neat and tidy and very, very clean. it has a good washing machine and dryer, drying rack and a bath and shower - Options!!! it has two toilets, two pull out double sofa beds, two queen needs and a bunk. the kitchen has everything you could want. The shops are a 2 minute walk away - including supermarket, takeaways, fresh fruit and veggie grocer, a newsagent and one of the best bakeries in the land. you are to far from the Bay, you have you prick of awesome beaches along the coast road and you can pop home at lunch time after great swim and watch jag in the air-conditioned comfort that is the lounge room. We had a small dog who was quite safe in the back yard, and though he struggled with the dog door - thats his issues rather than the doors!!! we also had a four year old with us who loved the books and games available. We played cards, board games and watched DVDs, BBQ'd and ate dinner most nights on the deck out the back with a good bottle of wine (or two!) WE LOVE the RETREAT You will too!!!

Excellent holiday away, Highly recommend
Great spot to getaway. Pet friendly accomodation is hard to find. The retreat welcomed our 3 dogs and it is walking distance to a few shops, a pet friendly beach and cafes. Extremely spacious and well maintained. Perfect for a family or just friends on holiday. Could not fault our experience.
