Everything is within walking distance, the boat ramp is 50 meters away with the main beach 150 meters away.

Peterborough is a beautiful and quiet location and a reminder of a time gone by. It has a family friendly focus with plenty to do for the whole family.

It is a truly unique location.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

House was in a good location with easy access to all the spectacular sites of the Great Ocean Road. The small town has all the services you need. The house was well stocked with nice furnishings and comfortable beds and great coffee. However it was a shame that we had to clean as soon as we got there. Table covered with food (spaghetti) and a lot of sultanas all over the floor throughout the house. Bathroom also needed a good clean. This didn't spoil our stay but it was the one thing that stopped it from being a five star property for us.

Owner's Response: Thanks Tilly, Thanks for the feedback, I'm sorry about the cleanliness of the house for your visit. FYI we have sacked the cleaners and now have a new person looking after the property. I have done spot tests and the house is now being presented the way we expect. Thanks for your advice because we cant fix things if we dont know about them. Look foward to having you back Carl and Jane

Fantastic house, very friendly owner.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Retide. The house is lovely and warm during the day and cools down fast at night, perfect for lazy summer days. The decorations and personal touches made us feel right at home. Carl was wonderful and really friendly. We'll be back again for sure.

Retide at Peterborough

  • 5 of 5

What a awesome house to stay at. We highly recommend staying at retide, the house is so clean and beautifully laid out with room for all the family. Even our little dog loved the yard and walking to the beach and river. The kids loved fishing, catching many fish just 50 metres from the house. The fire drum was fantastic and the kids used the bikes and boogie boards supplied which was great. The pub is just a short 2 minute stroll with the general store an easy 10 minute walk. This house was great for two families with plenty of room. The front yard in private and enclosed and the back yard is so big the kids could kick the footy and run around in. Under the house there is a shower and toilet which was great after the beach to wash off the sand. Our hubby's had there Harleys which could be stored securely under the house which was great. We can't wait to go back, this house will now be on our yearly holiday destination.
