Certainly off the beaten track and it made it just a bit more of an adventure as a surprise for the husband. Carrie's directions were brilliant and factoring in that we may get lost - we didn't! Hence making it in great time. Loved the dinner - it was so great to eat, drink and enjoy and the toddle off... More

We loved our stay at Cavalli. Our hosts made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. They welcomed us each morning with a delicious home-cooked breakfast. Attention to detail is clearly a priority. The room was immaculate and the view was everything we had hoped. We fell asleep to the sound of waves crashing. My partner and I... More

Carrie and Richard are perfect hosts in this beautiful beach retreat. Our room was absolute luxury right down to the bed sheets! The views are outstanding and we felt total and utter relaxation being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves breaking at the beach below each night. Thank you Carrie! We will be back!

Cavalli Beach House Retreat was amazing, we had the entire lodge to ourselves for the 2 night stay and couldn't have wished for a better time. The lodge itself is kept to the highest standard and the suite we stayed in had the most incredible view across the bay with a huge balcony to relax on. We also decided to... More

Picture perfect location. Spacious room with an enormous balcony to enjoy the stunning views. Carrie and Richard are wonderful hosts - knowledgeable & helpful. Fabulous food - generous breakfasts & dinner the first night was so good, we chose to dine in-house the second night. Great to see the emphasis on using quality local produce as much as possible.

My husband and I spent a perfect weekend at Cavalli Beach House Retreat. We felt relaxed and at home from the moment we arrived and spent the whole weekend doing nothing more than taking in the magnificent views, drinking great wine, enjoying fantastic chef cooked meals and enjoying the impeccable hospitality of hosts Carrie and Richard. Understated luxury - which... More
