Ive stayed at Andersons eco retreat many times & will continue to return. Not only is the land beautiful, mesmerising & relaxing, but Kim & Greg are so lovely, friendly & welcoming, i have no intention of looking elsewhere.

A perfect place to get away & rejuvinate in nature.

I thank them for sharing their land with us.

Perfect relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! Exactly what is needed for a quiet and peaceful escape. Property is lovely, clean and with everything you need. Surrounded by bush, a very leisurely walking track and lots of wild life. My partner and I spent a wonderful 2 nights here and wished we could have stayed longer. We will be back.

Great getaway experience - not that far away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to get away and just relax with plenty of low impact touristy things and restaurants to try in region. Our two kids 11 & 8 made comment that they were sad to have to go. Inside wood fire kept atmosphere and temperate warm and comfortable. Everywhere you look you see trees & trees & trees. Loved the serenity.

Loved the tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Nothing better than getting back to nature, with an added bonus of numerous wildlife sightings. Hosts couldn't be more helpful. Loved it and will be coming back.
