What a wonderful place!

What a wonderful place! Hot bath under the stars, listening to the possums in the trees, marshmallows around the fire, comfy wee cabin. Already planning our return.

Everything was perfect and we loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was perfect and we loved it! I just wish the bathtub was clean because I was really looking forward to having a nice warm bath in the outdoors but it was covered in dead leaves and had stains.

Owner's Response: Very pleased you enjoyed your time at Sandy Bay Retreat. Our apologies for not having the bath cleaned for your stay, as it is in the bush it is difficult to keep the leaves from falling into it. We appreciate your feedback.

We had a fantastic time, so great for kids and families sharing. Would recommend for something a bit different, great to be surrounded by nature.
