We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2014. It was a great way to end our three week trip around Tassie. We really enjoyed our wonderful cabin and the serenity of the location. The cabins are very unique in the way they are designed and positioned well in relation to each other offering maximum privacy. The Retreat is close... More

We stayed in the Pelican cottage and found it to have everything we needed. Although we were not there in the red hot summer we did find a lot of heat comes in via the large windows, and the A/C was struggling to keep the place cool. But otherwise the place was fantastic. Bed very comfortable. The beach was very... More

Hi nikowgcf, Thank you for your long review. Fortunately with a cool maritime climate, north west Tasmania escapes the searing heat and high humidity of many mainland states, with a mean average summer temperature of 21 degrees C. The 4.5 kva inverter should have been sufficient to maintain a comfortable temperature. Glad you enjoyed the contemporary cabin, secluded beach and... More

We spent a week at the Beachside Retreat West Inlet and used it as our base to explore the west coast of Tassie. The worst part of the experience was having to leave. Friendly staff, great facilities, easy walk to the beach and a great base to explore from regardless of how far or wide you wished to travel. Would... More

We recently stayed for two days and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The cabin we stayed in was very well fitted out, comfortable and made imaginative use of the space.

Excellent laundry facilities and the beach... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights at Beachside Retreat West Inlet and wished it had been longer. Beachside Retreat is a very special place; peaceful and secluded, away from the stresses of the world yet close enough to Stanley to enjoy it's sites/restaurants.

Located right on the beach side, these lovely cottages are very tastefully designed. If you are looking for a secluded setting and a touch of luxury this is the place to come. The circular window, comfortable bed, and the selection of restful cds enhanced the ambiance. The breakfast basket was excellent and included tasty homemade jams.

Hi SVPromise, Thank you for your review. Having a waterfront property with title to High Water Mark ensures all cottages are located adjacent to the beach. They are all secluded, separated by natural vegetation, giving maximum privacy to guests. Glad you appreciated the designer look and 'touch of luxury'; just right, we hope and not over the top.
