Overview

About the property

Indigo Retreat is a beautiful, private and unique retreat, perfect for inspiring escapes surrounded by the most stunning section of the NSW coast. We believe we provide some of the most beautiful and elegant couple's accommodation on the far south coast.

Please note: A year ago we opened a second, very quirky and luxurious lodge also with its own private pool - Indigo Retreat West Lodge - check out our new listing on Stayz too, especially if you can't get the dates you want at East Lodge.

East Lodge overlooks its own resort style pool on one side, and Murrah Lagoon, beach and ocean on the other. Next to the pool there is a covered outdoor kitchen with teppanyaki style bbq and gas pizza oven, as well as relaxing living space - sunny and warm next to the pool in summer or winter. Upstairs also overlooking the pool is a second outdoor living space with gas Webber bbq, adjoining a terrace with a firepit and woodfired pizza oven.

The main living area has an open Jetmaster fire, off it there is a beautiful sunroom with stunning views and a dedicated TV room with Foxtel and a collection of DVDs.

The lodge has a gorgeous semi-commercial kitchen that will keep anyone interested in making good food very, very happy. It has twin steam ovens, a butler's pantry, zip hot and cold water and a fully equipped pantry with extras such as food processor, cafe grill, rice cooker and juicer.

We provide you a bottle of champagne, treats, a collection of gourmet tea and an espresso machine and coffee shipped in from a secret location in Leichardt. Cook locally bought produce and seafood and supplement it with anything you can scrounge from our organic vegie garden or pick from our fruit trees. We also provide you with assorted spices and sauces so that you don't have to bring a supermarket full of food for your stay.

You can take a 15 min walk or 2 min drive along our private, wide and safe bush track to secluded and pristine Murrah Beach where you can explore coastal lagoons at either end or walk along the cliffs in adjoining Mimosa Rocks National Park and watch seabirds, whales & dolphins.

Return from the beach for a hot outdoor shower, a sauna, maybe another swim in the pool, throw a line in the lake, read a book, explore our extensive and unique gardens, take our kayak out on the lagoon or visit local wineries, art galleries and restaurants on the coastal food and art trail that runs between Bermagui and Tathra.

After dinner If its cold, light the Jetmaster open fire and cosy up in the lounge enjoying our art collection, or go to bed early and snuggle in to our luxurious linen, stargaze on the sunbeds or just sit and take in the sounds of the bush and ocean as you drink wine by the luminescent indigo lit pool.

Other options would be to take a bath in the outdoor deep Japanese bath - immersed blissfully to your neck in hot water and get out and watch any of the pay TV channels, or instead get active in the small gym or bliss out in the infrared sauna.

This really is a stunning place to holiday - we have always specialised in accommodating one couple for anniversaries, honeymoons, babymoons and other special occasions, but can accommodate up to five couples on request.

**We're sorry because of the level of luxury and the many water hazards on this property it is not suitable for children ***

For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts.

Location & Things to Do

The Murrah is a rural and forested haven about 15 minutes south of Bermagui on the Bermagui-Tathra coastal road. It is on the northernmost boundary of Mimosa Rocks National Park which has stunning spotted gum and burrawang forest, numerous untouched beaches and crystal clear lagoons.

Charming old wooden bridges, lush green farmland, beachside drives and winding forested roads all add to its unique unspoiled character and it has been a long time favoured escape for city refugees seeking space in nature for creative arts, rest and healing.

Now with the opening of a few deluxe accommodation options the Murrah has become accessible for holiday stays and a series of new galleries, wineries and restaurants nearby have overlayed the pleasure factor to create a fantastic escape destination.

Nearby Bermagui is a very pretty and undeveloped coastal village with a population of about 2000 people. It's the perfect place for topping up food and holiday supplies and has more than enough restaurants, wine bars and cafes to try out over the space of a week or two. The historic village of Tilba and coastal towns Tathra and Merimbula are easily accessible for day trips.

If you haven't explored this very special part of the wilderness coast you must do so!

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

The house offered everything we had hoped for, beautifully laid out, perfect indoor & outdoor spaces for our party of 10. The attention to detail is quite something and would certainly recommend to groups as the space allows so much flexibility. With the amazing beach a short drive away for activities it was a perfect retreat.

Totally amazing!

  • 5 of 5

There are only 2 words to sum up Indigo Retreat East Lodge and that is 'totally amazing'. I stayed there with my husband and 4 other couples from the UK and US and what a fabulous place for friends or families to spend quality time together. There is so much to do and so many entertaining areas to eat and be together in. No expense has been spared in any of the rooms and everything you could want is provided.... and I mean everything. The location is quiet and peaceful yet Bermagui is not too far away for a visit, a meal, or to buy provisions. The beach is a short drive away down a private road but definately worth the 2 or 3 minutes it takes to get there as it is totally stunning and desserted. This is probably one of the best accommodations I have stayed in for a very long time. Indigo Retreat..... we'll be back.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Indigo Retreat. It's an amazing house, with a multitude of different places to relax, a kitchen that enabled us to look after ourselves very easily, and stunning views. We'll definitely be back.

Outstanding Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We took two nights as a syndicate of owners (three couples) to spend time in a deep review our own business. The house was a perfect fit for us - it has a great ambience, top shelf quality and privacy and quietness. We all wanted to stay longer, but alas .....
