A return visit for me, I absolutely loved spending time at the Starhaven Retreat with its many facilities and stunning décor! Not to mention the amazing hospitality offered by two very special people - Ian and Rob. I will definitely be going back again and again. One very happy customer.

We booked this place in a hurry and didn't know what to expect. From the photos and the reviews we were expecting good things. Starhaven retreat was everything that was described and much more! Rob and Ian provide a service that you can't even find in some 5 star resorts. Its truly a unique experience that probably can't be described... More

Staying at Starhaven is like a visit to friends who run a small hotel. But watch out they are professionals and take their business seriously. The most important thing is the familiar atmosphere they created, they are very very good hosts. Ian is a brilliant cook (try the mushrooms for breakfast). He also prepared a wonderful dinner for us (thanks).... More

We have never stayed anywhere as luxurious and welcoming as Starhaven. Rob, Ian and Sparky are great hosts, and their Haven Suite is a wonderful, indulgent escape. We have actually stayed there before this visit, and were most impressed back then. Now, having indulged in the Haven Suite, we think the weekend was one of our most memorable. Thanks, guys.

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
