We had a delightful one night stay at the Starhaven Retreat. Rob and Ian are great hosts - extremely welcoming and helpful. The retreat is very comfortable and the bedrooms and living areas are spacious. The biggest surprise for us was the inhouse theatre/cinema - better than any commercial cinema! We would recommend it for anyone looking for a relaxing... More

We had an amazing time at Starhaven Retreat when we were able to stay there in Jan 2016. The house is large and luxurious, impeccably clean and tastefully decorated. Our room had the most comfortable King sized bed, gas fireplace, large screen TV, infinity bath, large rainfall shower and steam shower. Ian and Rob (and Sparky) were both wonderful hosts,... More

My partner recently surprised me for our anniversary by taking me to Starhaven Retreat for the weekend. What an amazing surprise it was! We were warmly greeted by Ian who was more than happy to take us on a tour of his and Rob's incredible place. Many highlights include the spa bath and sauna in our ensuite, our private balcony,...

Starhaven is truly a home away from home. Normally you book into a place and leave with memories of the things you did in and around the area. We left with wonderful memories of Starhaven, Rob and Ian that we'll cherish for years to come! Ian and Rob are such lovely hosts! The breakfast spread is to die for and... More

I had organised to propose to my now lovely wife to be, I tried to make the whole experience perfect. It started with the booking, Ian and Rob made us feel welcome over the phone. We travelled less than a taxi ride and waiting time at an airport (1hr 45in) to arrive at our luxury destination. We had a few... More

We stayed three nights at Starhaven and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The facilities are outstanding but the factor that set apart this exclusive B&B was the warmth and love of Ian & Rob's family home that radiates through every room, and their generosity in welcoming strangers who quickly become friends. These gentlemen have perfected the balance of being available &... More

We stayed at the Starhaven Retreat for a one night midweek getaway during October. The residence itself is magnificent and the facilities offer a luxury experience, however it's the warm welcome from our wonderful hosts Ian, Rob & Sparky and their attention to detail to ensure our stay was perfect that sets this B&B apart. Nothing was too much trouble... More

How fortunate we are to have discovered Starhaven. My partner and I have had the great pleasure to both visit and stay at Starhaven Retreat on a number of occasions. On some of these occasions we were looking for a quiet retreat from the busy world and Ian, Rob and Sparky hosted us perfectly, sensitive to each any and every... More

We stayed at Starhaven for the weekend. We had high hope, and it surpassed all of them. Everything was perfect: the location, the room, the entertainment areas, our hosts, the breakfast. Perfect. We will be back, and we will recommend you to everyone we can. Thank you.
