"Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely retreat. It is just what we all need after a busy year of school and full time work! Your home is beautiful and it was a real treat. Our youngest loved the games and the oldest the upstairs area. The only problem is that we could not stay longer!!!"

"Loved the accommodation and great value for money - to quote our 3 1/2 year old daughter coming in the front door for the first time: "Wow, this is AMAZING!!" Well equipt kitchen and the fans and air con throughout was fab! The only downside was no bathroom upstairs near master BR, but it is a really comfortable space to bring a small family for a week and we loved the LARGE, FLUFFY and abundent towels/bath sheets provided that even fitted my 6'6" tall hubbie!"

"We loved VHR - it was like home away from home - without the annoying adult children and pets and with a better quality TV! Extremely clean and spacious and very well appointed and very prompt response to our enquiries. We saw whales and seals and the sun shone - what more could we ask for a short break - we highly recommend the accommodation and location. Thanks"

"We were there from the 1st to the 3rd of May and were kindly allowed to do a late check-out of 12noon. Much appreciated!

The Retreat is very well maintained and very clean. I left my mobile charger there and Sheryl kindly dropped it in an office near mine when she was in Adelaide! Where else can you get personalised service like that?!

We burnt one of the pots while we were there but were let off! Sorry and thank you!

We will definitely return, was looking at the availability for Christmas but the Retreat was already booked!
