Owner / Manager

The Retreat is a family business and we have had the property for over 15 years. We are passionate about each and every booking to ensure that everything is perfect and exactly as we promised.

The Retreat is a truly unique venue being surrounded by bush land, offering a very private location while backing onto the most amazing sand dunes. The beach is just a two minute drive from the property, so you have the best of both worlds with the bush and beach meeting the dunes.

Our property is a place where everything can happen onsite with accommodation for all the guests, plus options for the wedding ceremony and reception. No need for cars or taxis – everyone can walk home.

Private, peaceful and completely private for your special occasion.
