My husband suprised me with a mid-week anniversary get away to this wonderful secluded and quiet tree house. We couldn't have asked for more. The endless hot water, the kitchenette (giving no reason to leave if we didn't want to) the information provided to us about the area and the beach just a short stroll away. Highly recommend and would... More

Very compact cottage hidden away amongst the trees. Lovely spot for nature lovers not so good for the shoppers. Very quiet but cabins would be small if you had 5 people. You need a car and there is no phone or internet connection

This place is absolutely perfect! If you do not like the bush and Mosquitos , and so on , I'm not sure it would be the place for you but this was perfect for my boyfriend and I. The owners are way too nice and just lovely people. Not only that , but the lovely gentlemen showed us the top... More

My partner and I stayed here for a couple of nights in between Christmas and New years and we absolutely adored it. The place is so serene and peaceful, it is like staying in a rainforest. The owner is so nice and friendly, he spent a good 15 minutes with us when we checked in, just giving us a full... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights to escape the Sydney rat-race. It was wonderful. We were greeted by Ian at the office and he gave us a comprehensive map and list of things to do around the area even bringing us an umbrella so we didn't have to worry about the rain. The tree house was lovely!... More

We travelled up from Melbourne to spend a few summer days in Anna Bay. Wanderers Retreat was the perfect place to stay - our eco-cabin was surrounded by trees and overlooked the pool. It was shady and cool and we felt like we were secluded and private. It's only a short walk to the surf at One Mile beach (where... More

We stayed for one night and had a great time. The hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Had a visit from a friendly possum on our porch. Short walk to one mile beach. I would definatly go again.

Just returned from 7 nights with 8 family members. We booked the beach cottage which has 4 big bedrooms, all but one with verandahs. This cottage was beautiful, spacious and well kept. The retreat is only a very short walk to a very beautiful and safe beach. The retreat grounds itself are lovely and peaceful with a pool. A bit... More

We have just returned from Wanderers Retreat, spending 6 nights there. We met Ian the owner who was extremely helpful in giving us tips for attractions. The lodgings were a pleasant surprise, set up in the gum trees, we were greeted nightly by possums and during the day a kookaburra visited. Short walk to the beach, we found the retreat... More
