It was our second stay in Sandpiper beach lodge and found the whole experience even better than the last. We particularly enjoy its prime position overlooking the beach, the quietness and the peace. Jeanette and Chris have provided all that is needed for a wonderful relaxing holiday, regardless of weather. We hope to make it again to Beachside Retreat West... More

The quality of our cabin, the Pelican, and the location of Beachside Retreat was everything and more as described on the web site. Our friendly hosts introduced us to our beautifully designed and appointed cabin, then left us to immerse ourselves in the beauty and serenity of West Inlet. A small sandhill separated our cabin from the beach, yet we... More

There are very few reviews on TA about the 3 bedroom spa lodge at Beachside Retreat as nearly all relate to the superb 2 bedroom luxury cabins. Please be warned the spa lodge is nothing like the cabins at all (which I might add look absolutely superb from what we saw during our stay). The spa lodge is a run... More

We are sorry that you did not find the spa lodge up to your expectations. We do not claim on our website that it is luxury accommodation and you are correct when you say we are mostly set up for couples, the only other accommodation being the spa lodge which has more than one bedroom. It is certainly not rundown.... More

This was our second stay (from December 23 to January 2) in a chalet at the West Inlet Retreat and it was as enjoyable as our first stay in 2011. The quality of the chalets has not changed and is excellent. Guests have now also access to a new and heated outdoor pool in the form of a 10m swimming... More

We were looking for somewhere right on the beach for some R&R. We could not have asked for a better spot. We stayed in the Sea Eagle beach house which was right on the beach & had its own private spa tub facing the ocean & beach. It was absolutely serene! The beach house had all the amenities one could... More

I've just spent an excellent three night stay at Beachside Retreat - which in my experience ticks all the boxes for a premium holiday resort - high quality accommodation, magnificent natural environment and privacy. And Janette and Chris are terrific hosts - which makes the whole experience a delight. Definitely one to revisit - and so I've booked already for... More

We were lucky enough to spend 2 nights in sea eagle during our stay in Tasmania. The spa in the sand dunes was an experience to treasure, sitting underneath the Milky Way with the sounds of the ocean certainly a unique way to spend a fabulous weekend. The owners were fantastic, with plenty of great advice for our forward journey... More

We wanted to chill out after the year that was and I am very glad I chose this place to spend 3 nights doing just that. It is private, self contained, comfortable and just a short drive into the local town of Stanley. We loved exploring all morning at local Andrew's beach (4 wheel drive access), the township of Stanley... More

Hi Kris, Thank you for your review. This is the ideal place to chill out; secluded, tranquil and very private. Just the ever changing scenery with the sounds of the waves, the birds and the wildlife. We love guests to enjoy our beautiful setting and the spa on the dunes is a wonderful experience, especially under the stars; very romantic.... More

We had a lovely couple of nights in the 3 bed Lodge (older style but with all the comforts of home) Although next time I'm coming without the kids as the cabins look even better! Janette & Chris were very welcoming, even leaving some toys out for the kids. My husband had a ball collecting oysters from the rocks out... More

Hi Katie, Thank you for writing a review. Glad you enjoyed a relaxing stay here for your special anniversary. The 3 B/R spa lodge is ideal for families, being spacious, on one level and close to the pools. The newer, contemporary cabins and lodges for couples, all have magnificent sea views but have unfenced decks to the ocean and are... More

Hi Patricia, So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the weather, it can be very unpredictable in spring. Glad you liked the cabin design and decor; the rocks for the bathroom floor were collected from the beach at low tide. We also try to use home produced ingredients for the breakfast baskets as much as possible. The only sounds... More
