Comments from our guest book:

"What a fantastic spot - thank you! We had such an amazing time - really appreciated the beauty of the view, the surroundings and comforts of the Retreat...."

"This quiet place with the sounds of birds, overlooking the water, with the sand dunes in the distance, was perfect for our weekend break. We loved the kayak trip to the southern ocean and walking though natural bushland was great. The Retreat is perfect..."

"What a wonderful place! Comfortable and so relaxing. A great view. Lovely to just sit and watch the bird life, frogs in the pond in the evening, and the water.... We even enjoyed the strong winds and rain when we were cosy by the fire...."

".... Loved the parade of pelicans and swans morning and night over the water; saw an eagle and Nankeen Kestrels and enjoyed the honeyeaters' songs."

"A great place to stay with a large range of things to do and see ...."

"A fantastic location and beautifully equipped home - only wish I could have stayed longer..."

"You have named this place correctly - Retreat! The house is perfect. The location serene. This morning a kangaroo bounded across the grassy verge, as we had a 'cuppa' watching the white caps."

"We had a wonderful cosy weekend in front of the fire. 42 Mile Crossing and the walks around there were beautiful. Lovely location."

"Fantastic - too short" "We would love to stay for longer next time" "... always too short" "Next time we will stay longer".

Heavenly Escape!

Beautiful, peaceful location for a trip away. The view and house were amazing, everything is supplied and beautifully clean. Stunning garden with lots of birdlife in the garden and along the Coorong. Had some lovely walks. Couldn't ask for more, would definitely return.

Birdwatcher's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at Coorong Waterfront Retreat recently. Couldn't stop watching the amazing views, changing with wind, rain, and calm.

Flocks of pelicans, gulls, terns, cormorants, as well as honeyeaters and swallows in the garden.

We loved the rhythms of nature, with the birds coming and going depending on where the fish were, as well as the weather.

Not much entertainment needed, the Coorong provides it all.

The house has a very laid back ambience, and invites you to sit back and switch off.

Perfect retreat.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Awesome property with fantastic views. The property is well maintained and equipped to make the stay comfortable and convenient. The garden is lovely and has the added bonus of containing herbs and veg that guests can use. The kids loved the Coorong waterfront and enjoyed looking for crabs as well as checking for frogs in the garden pond. Us adults enjoyed the gorgeous view and complimentary sparkling, something for everyone..

Ultimate relaxation with a view

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful and well cared for property. After a busy week and some sight seeing we needed some relaxation time - Coorong Waterfront Retreat offered this in full swing. The house is immaculate and well equipped, bed was comfortable, the wood burning fireplace was a cozy touch for chilly mornings as we made lattes and watched the water. Great to have access to the kayaks as well. Next time we need a quick get away (so close to Adelaide) we would like to return. Thanks for everything!
