Affordable, tranquil and cute

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Retro at the Bay, especially kicking back and listening to some classics on the record player. The property is as cute as the pictures convey and has such a nice nostalgic and relaxing feel about it. It is also super close to local beaches and is situated in a safe neighbourhood. We highly recommend. Thank you Sue and Dave for having us.

Exactly what you're expecting!!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my partner had a wonderful few days at Retro at the Bay!

Like all the other reviewers, the accomdation more than lived up to the expectation created by the photos. It's very bit as cute and lovely as it appears!

The owners were also remarkably easy to communicate with and went above and beyond to give us tips and local insight ( into activities, eating spots etc)

We got lucky with the weather, so it was really nice to spend time at the South Coast's world acclaimed beaches, and then to retire to the sanctuary and comfort of the the Retro each evening!

We had a wonderful time and would recommend it to anyone that wants a little uniqueness in their south coast get-away

Absolutely Brilliant Blast From The Past!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is fantastic, I took my mother just for an overnight stay as a little break and it worked perfectly for us. The house is so unique, the kitchen was my favourite, I can see so much love and effort has been put into each and everything that is in it. I was totally surprised how spacious, clean and tidy everything was. Biggest bonus for me was the old record player, we loved spinning Elvis and other random old records and also the visit from the neighbourhood kangaroos in the early evening was pretty cool.

I would of loved to stay just a little longer, just so we could of given the fondue pot a go, it looked exactly like the one from when I was a kid, such great memories!!

A return visit with my family is definitely on the cards!
