We were warmly greeting on arrival and our every need was catered for. There was plenty to do from relaxing spa to energetic walks. Delicious breakfast started the day. We were afforded privacy when we wanted it as well chatty companionship when we sought it out.

Heartsong Retreat is the loveliest B & B we've ever had the pleasure to stay in, with wonderful hosts who go above and beyond to ensure your stay is relaxing and enjoyable.

When we arrived and Trish showed us around the property our jaws dropped, "Wow!"

Our room had the most amazing double shower with ocen views and it was the little things that made it extra special like candles in the boat house or a torch in your room so you could safely make your way to the beautiful stone spa at night.

There's also plenty to see and do at Heartsong and in the local area. We loved taking the dinghy out and exploring Rocky Bay!

We can't wait to return and will hopefully do so in the coming months.

We had the most wonderful, relaxed and pampered weekend here. We were child free for 2 nights and wanted something really special, this was it. Very highly recommended. Enjoy.....

The feeling of relaxation and peace generated by the location is complimented by Trish and Robin's friendliness and vitality as hosts. We loved the breakfasts and interesting conversation.
An evening spa under the stars with candles and swaying native bush does wonders for the soul.
We wished we could have stayed longer
