We were lucky enough to spend a weekend in the Oystercatcher cabin and could not fault the experience. Photos don't do this property justice as they just can't depict the feel of it. Janette and Chris were wonderful hosts and nothing was too much for them. The cleanliness of our room was second to none and it had a wonderful...

Hi KeliP, Thank you for your review; it is always appreciated when guests take time out to write one. Both ecocabins are unique and very difficult to photograph, being high-set on the frontal dune, so most of our images need to be taken from a helicopter. We love it when guests are happy so we try to make their stay...

This would truly be one of our favourite places. We stayed two nights in the Sea Eagle Luxury Nature Cabin. What a wonderful experience, a hot tub in the sand dunes! Wow!! We enjoyed every minute, we only wish that it was longer. The cabin is absolutely beautiful, sea views across the front, quality fittings and the peacefulness of the...

Hi SueH, Thank you for your lovely review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Sea Eagle, with it's hot tub atop the dunes; a lovely experience overlooking the water.

What an amazing place to stay & enjoy the scenery and tranquility of the surroundings. The design of the cabins is unique, especially the bathroom.

Hi lynetteandbruce, We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in one of our unique ecocabins. The position is amazing, sited on the dunes overlooking the beach.

We stayed for a week in the Pelican cabin. We had a wonderful time in this part of Tasmania. Beachside Retreat has a superb setting with gorgeous views on the West Inlet Bay and the Pelican has everything you might expect from a nature, self-catering, luxury cabin.

I stayed in the 'Pelican' retreat for a week in February 2013. I'd been looking for somewhere to get away from everything and everyone for a little while as my life had been truly hectic and emotionally draining. My wish list for accommodation included: being stylish; suitable for one person; air conditioned; self-contained; private; and being in a serene location....

Hi Justin and Joice, Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Pelican nature cabin.

Beachside Retreat is tucked carefully into the sand dunes above beautiful West Inlet and only a few kilometres from the little township of Stanley. The four cabins are completely private from each other and all with their own unique character. Everything you could need for a peaceful 'retreat' but with all mod cons. There is a nature trail that winds...
