Excellent location and home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the marina retreat holiday home. The beds were the comfiest I’ve ever had at a holiday property and the location was super convenient. It was modern and had tvs in nearly every room! Parking was easy and the backyard offered plenty of space for outside entertaining and for my daughter to run around.

We did feel that the supplies could have been topped up, we didn’t realise the olive oil was empty until going to use it, the salt and pepper grinders were near empty and a bit of milk like we’ve had in other stayz locations would have been convenient. These are minor though and wouldn’t stop us from staying there again at all!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Marina Retreat, the house had everything we needed, the heating was excellent and plenty of entertainment for rainy days with multiple TVs and PlayStation for the kids. Location was good close to beach and shops and restaurants- Glenelg has everything. The Marina - a 10 minute walk- has great restaurants and a nice Oyster Bar. Would highly recommend.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We decided that the Marina Retreat Holiday Home would be a perfect place for a family get together to celebrate my mothers 90th birthday given that all of Glenelg,s attractions were all within easy walking distance , important because we were pushing Mum,s wheelchair . The house was ideal ,clean, well equipped and spacious .However we felt that a house catering for up to 6 people needed another shower and toilet ,and the memory mattress wasn,t very popular . Sian our host was extremely helpful and courteous in all our inquiries and during our stay . All in all we would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone seeking a relaxing ,comfortable place in beautiful surrounds.
