It has been 3 months of constant weekly emails to the managers of Executive Retreats, Wendy and Hans regarding contacting 'the owner' of Mystique Beach House regarding our awful stay during April this year. The disrespect they have shown in not even replying to my emails is evidence of the lack of service you will get should you make the... More

For the ridiculous price per night of $650 there is no way that Mystique is worth the money! I have to write this review whilst I am staying here as my disappointment and anger about the place needs to be expressed now rather than when we leave! Unfortunately we have fully paid for this place for a week and I... More

We rented another of Executive Retreat's properties earlier in the year and though the house was beautifully situated on the beach, it was poorly equipped - no jug for water, no where to hang wet washing, no sharp cooking knives and a really substandard array of cutlery and china. When we arrived we were locked out notwithstanding that we had... More

We had similar problems with Executive Retreats at another house in Port Douglas. Check in was chaotic to say the least, the pool was filthy and nothing was explained to us. The remote controls for fans TVs etc were dead and we had to go out and buy batteries to get them working. The freezer didnt work so our food... More

Amazing house right on the beach with spectacular outlook. The house is beautiful and and in a perfect location. The service was great and we could not fault any part of our stay. Having travelled extensively around the world for many years it was great find such a beautiful location and house to stay in Australia's far north. We could... More

My family and I had the pleasure to stay at Mystique. Firstly, we were personally greeted by the hosts, shown everything at the house and assured that if we needed anything they were just a phone call away. They made us feel so welcome. What a relaxing and enjoyable two weeks. The location was amazing (right on the beach) large... More

I understand a fairly negative view has been taken by most reviewers. Stayed on second family trip in two years with Executive Retreats and it was wonderful... First time in this house. Very well erupt clean and good aircon. Great pool comfortable bed and spacious. The peace and tranquility of the beach and the fact it is off beaten track... More

We stayed at another Executive Retreats property in Newell Beach and were deeply disappointed. We flew half way across the world to enjoy a wonderful holiday at a beach house in Australia only to be told upon arrival that we could not swim in the water due to the marine stingers that are deadly. These stingers are in the water... More

We spent two weeks at Mystique. The home has a lovely position and a good layout. However for $650 a night it has a disappointing fit out. Inside, the main issues are a very uncomfortable lounge and dining setting, a very poorly equipped kitchen - cheap crockery, utentsils & cookware, and only one tv. When you are in a four... More

We stayed at another property managed by Executive Retreats and had a similarly bad experience with the managing hosts. We had problems with noise at night from a neighbouring property that we had tried to resolve ourselves to no avail. When we asked the host to come and assist he yelled at me that it was not his problem and... More
