“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012 for a stay in November 2011

Sorrento Bay Retreat is like no other holiday accommodation, with its
stimulating but warm design, its completeness of facilities and its
truly inspiring outlook. The view of Wellington and Port Nicholson is
second to none, with the daily movements of city and sea all going on
out there, but only to the sounds of bird song, and waves lapping on
the beach below.

A special touch is the library of books, varied enough to cater for
all interests.

Gill and Gus are really great hosts who willingly share their good
humour and love of life.

We said we’d be back, and we did, and we’ll certainly be back again.
Staying anywhere else would be second best.

As we sat on the balcolny at Sorento Retreat we commented what a perfect place it was to escape our hectic lives and relax. It was a fantastic Christmas to remember.The views were incredible and the accommodation faultness. Gill and Gus the owners are true hosts....we will definitely be back.
