One on the left with the island and one the right. Both walking distances. Close to the jetty too. Pool is great as well as facilities. Would...

We loved our stay at Thou Walla. We stayed in a wonderful cabin for 13 nights. The Cabin was very spacious, comfortable and clean, and it had a lovely balcony with a nice view. The retreat itself was very quiet and peaceful. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend Thou Walla as a great place to...

Thou Walla Sunset Retreat was everything we hoped for out of a week long getaway over New Years. To begin with, the reception staff Airlie and Jen were bright, bubbly and very helpful. The accomodation we stayed in was the sunset glamping. It was gorgeous with a spacious area, a large shower and a very comfy king size bed. Not...

Let me start by saying the staff were good, the spot awesome, and the room fantastic, until you sat on the balcony/deck at night and got the foul smell of the composting toilets (inside the glamping bathroom). This reason by itself would not bring me back to thou walla and reflects my rating. If they were to get rid of...

We ducked away from Sydney for some "us time" and whilst booking our favourite restaurant at the Marina saw this place up the hill. If your looking for a place to do nothing but chill, read a book, go for a walk, have a swim, find a good restaurant, sleep in find breakfast and then chill some more, then this...

We had the opportunity to stay at Thou Walla Sunset Retreat recently for a quick break away (2 nights) after a fairly busy period; and I must say it was what we were looking for. We tried the Glamping experience which is very simple but spot on: a hard wooden floor, a tent structure on the top, a covered front...

This place is well located by Soldiers Point and only a short walk to shops and a couple of restaurants and the bowling club. The staff are friendly and helpful and the cabins spacious, comfortable, clean and well appointed. A pool, BBQ area, laundry, and a bus stop at the door. Couldn't ask for more

Surprised my partner with 2 nights away in one of the glamping tents. So quiet and peaceful which is exactly what we needed. The sunset was incredible. Loved having the luxury of a king sized bed, TV, gas fire place, shower and toilet all included inside the tent. Cuddling in bed listening to the rain was so nice. Staff were...
