We were lucky enough to stay at Starhaven Retreat on our recent trip to Australia and I would highly recommend anyone travelling South West of Melbourne and needing somewhere to stay to book in with Ian and Rob who are both such great hosts. We were greeted with a hugely warm welcome and immediately made to feel at home being... More

Celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary, we were looking for something a bit out of the ordinary as a week-end to remember. Starhaven ticked all the boxes for us. We loved the options of so many spaces for quiet time within the property and the theatre room was great. Rob and Ian were the perfect hosts carefully treading the line between... More

We stayed at Starhaven Retreat for two nights in the most beautiful relaxing room. Ian and Rob have built a gorgeous house right on the ocean. From the moment we stepped in their front door we were well taken care of. From the delicious food, immaculately kept house, top notch facilities and most importantly two of the nicest gentlemen you... More

The attention to detail Robert and Ian have put into this place is breathtaking. Starhaven has a warm relaxing atmosphere with remarkable views. We had a wonderful time and the only fault was that we couldn't stay longer. Thankyou for a memorable few nights.

Thank you for inviting us both in to your home that felt more like a Five Star hotel. You had thought of everything that made our stay the most comfortable and luxurious stay. The view is amazing across from the beach and the walks relaxing thanks for the recommended restaurant only 5 minutes drive away

Starhaven is a fantastic escape to a lovely part of the Bellarine Peninsula, where you don't feel any pressure to do anything except relax. Our only regret was that we stayed one night only so didn't have time to sample everything Starhaven had to offer - Cinema, Spa, Sauna, Bar, Roofdeck - instead we spent most of the time chilling...
