Your Dream Holiday is only one click away....

Your holiday at The Islander Retreat, will allow you to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and all the stress that comes with it. We have set up our Island Retreat to cater for families and friends young and old. The perfect place to make life long memories.

You will have access to the nature walks throughout the island with an abundance of wallabies and wildlife, the canals and waterways for a spot of fishing or kayaking, your own sandy beach, curl up with a book on the daybed under the bali hut, or take a plunge in our own private pool.

If cooking up a BBQ feast on our huge outdoor deck is not for you, a short bike ride or boat trip to the neighbouring resort offers excellent dining choices. Alternatively a 5 minute boat trip allows you to enjoy dining and refreshments at Tipplers Café.

Come and enjoy our home away from home!

We had such a great weekend at the Islander Retreat! What a beautiful house. We had 5 couples staying here and never felt like we were in each others pockets. Awesome outdoor area where we spent most of our time. Suitable for hot and cold climates with the air conditioning and pool for hotter days and gas heaters for cooler nights. The basketball hoop and cruiser bikes got a workout over our weekend as well. It was really lovely how the owners of the house have gone the extra mile to make sure there are plenty of things to do, including a full games cupboard. The welcome treats were definitely enjoyed as well.

Will definitely consider staying here again!

We were a group of 12 adults plus a 5 month old and we couldn't have asked for a better house. It was clean and very spacious. Our group dinner around the big table on the deck and lunches perched at the table near the BBQ were awesome. The bikes and cayaks were perfect for adventures and the vacant block around the corner was the perfect cricket pitch! We walked up the end of the street and watched a beautfiul sunset. Can't wait to do it all again some time.

Great property & Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently arranged for my family to stay at The Islander Retreat and we were greeted with an absolutely beautiful property when pulling up on the jetty. From the moment all 10 of us walked in we loved every minute of our stay in this house. Beautifully finished and decorated, great facilities and room for all 10 of us to spend together but also not feel like we were under each others feet. Sitting on the deck or lying on the day bed looking up the canal was the pick of the spots in my opinion.

The booking and enquiry process was fantastic and Michelle was great to deal with ad made the process much easier than other properties I have booked in the past. I originally booked 4 individual rooms over at the Ramada resort but am so happy that I changed my booking to The Islander Retreat. Much more social and plenty of room to relax and unwind.

My family now wants to make it an annual getaway here because we all enjoyed our time so much.Two thumbs up in my opinion!!!!

WOW!!! This house is amazing

  • 5 of 5

Having your own pool at the house was fantastic, and the bikes provided let us explore the island. The kids having their own rumpus area was a great treat for mum and dad. A short stroll to both resorts was handy. Outdoor bar,deck area was huge. Plenty of room for everyone inside and out. Will definitely be back again.
