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.

Every single one of my stays at Avalon has been nothing short of magical!! Every aspect of this exquisite accommodation exudes luxury, beauty, comfort ~ from the heavenly beds, to the delicious food and wine supplied, to the peaceful and glorious location, to the luxurious bathroom supplies, and everything else.

An outstanding, well appointed and stocked property.
What an outstanding property. A secluded location with a private beach and magnificent views. Supremely well appointed with magnificent attention to detail. A very well stocked kitchen and bar adds to the ease at which to slip into a luxurious stay. One of the best places I have stayed at, worldwide.

Magical Avalon
I have been wanting to stay at Avalon Coastal Retreat for a long time and it did not disappoint. It was a getaway for my husband and I to relax and recoup but with family/friends it would be also be amazing place to wine, dine and create memories. Celebrating a milestone birthday we had extra treats, Helen was very accommodating and a pleasure to communicate with. Avalon is well equipped and everything you need plus more is supplied. My recommendation is don't put it off and book an amazing experience in this magical place.

Unforgettable
The most beautiful and rejuvenating place to swim, sun, walk and visit nearby restaurants and beaches. We had an incredible stay at Avalon. So thoughtfully designed, with elevated food and wine. The sunrise on our first morning will be a memory we hold forever. As will the night stroll under the moon and festoon lights down to the beach. Oh and that feeling of being surround and floating in blue! Find any excuse to stay in this magical place!

Stunning
There probably isn't a place as nice as this in all of Tassie. Stunning scenery, beautiful architecture, you're own beach and all completely private. We can't get enough of this.

We are so pleased you managed to book our Winter Temptation package, thank you. Avalon is like being in another world, secluded from the hustle and bustle of life. Everything seems to move at a slower pace, and the night skies are certainly spectacular. We loved having you stay with us again. With warm wishes Brett and the Avalon team.

A birthday celebration
Avalon is an amazing place - stunning vistas, location and facilities. My wife and I went for a special birthday celebration and the venue lived up to our highest expectations. It is a stunning venue for a group of friends to celebrate a special occasion. The kitchen is set-up for sharing great food and wines with best friends. We'd do it again - without hesitation. Expect to be delighted - we were! Greg

A perfect escape - in any season
Avalon is definitely a jewel in Tasmania's crown when it comes to experiencing luxury accommodation that has stood the test of time. From the minute you arrive you know you are in for something very special. Walking into the expansive living room with floor to ceiling windows on three sides, immersed within the incredible, rugged coastal landscape and surrounded by the most extraordinary views of Great Oyster Bay. These breathtaking views are at the heart of what Avalon is truly all about. We've had the pleasure of staying here in Summer, lazy days swimming at Avalon's private beach below, sharing feasts of delicious seasonal produce, gathered locally and prepared in the excellently equipped kitchen. We've also spent perfect Winter days here, relaxing in front of the open fire, indulging in local east coast wine and watching the wild weather roll in around us, perfectly cocooned and cosy. This property has been thoughtfully designed incorporating three bedrooms and bathrooms, the master with an incredible custom Huon pine bath, and works really well for staying with family or friends alike ... or just running away for a coastal escape with your partner. Avalon feels like a sanctuary and we are lucky to know it's here.

Hi Paul How awesome that you have experienced both a summer and winter stay at Avalon. It is pretty spectacular watching the weather roll in, when you are cosied up in front the fire with a good Tassie wine. It is also special to enjoy a summer sunrise and swim at the beach. We so appreciate you taking time to review Avalon and share your experience. Thank you. With the best of wishes Brett and your Avalon team.

The surrounding area of Great Oyster Bay includes Coles Bay, Bay of Fires, Freycinet National Park and Maria Island.

Don't forget to experience the local wineries and eateries up and down the coast.
