“Everything you could hope for...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

There is not one bad thing I can say about Seascape Retreat, it is everything you could hope for and more.
You approach the retreat on a dirt road and we appreciated the warning from our host to be aware of kangaroos, sure enough there were 2 sitting in the middle of the road as we rounded a corner. You feel so isolated from the hustle and bustle of the real world and yet are only a short 10 minute drive away from Victor Harbor.
There are 3 villas to choose from and we stayed in the aptly named Serenity Lodge. The views from every corner (including the bed) are simply stunning and the sound of birds and sheep are all you will hear. We spent most of our stay on the huge front deck but there is also a sheltered rear courtyard, both areas have a table and chairs.
Inside there is everything you are likely to need, large lounge suite, dining table, fully equipped kitchen, huge bed, even bigger bathroom, separate toilet, 2 flat screen tvs, dvd player and stereo with ipod dock, The kitchen is well stocked with breakfast supplies, plus there are lots of little extras like olive oil, fresh coffee and every kitchen implement imaginable including chopsticks!
The shower was great, there are toiletries provided plus a hairdryer and even a first aid kit for any little mishaps.
I have to admit one of my favourite things was the warm and snuggly throw rug that I used both nights when we sat on the deck in unseasonably cold summer weather.
In summary I cant imagine anyone not loving it here and personally I can't wait until we can visit again.

Room Tip: All 3 villas have the same stunning view but each is completely private.

Thank you 'Sharmun'.
As Seascape Retreat had only been open for a few weeks when you stayed, we thought it would take some time before we saw any reviews on Trip Advisor!
We greatly appreciate you taking the time to post your review as we know how valuable reviews are to those planning a holiday to unknown destinations and accommodation.
Thank you again, we look forward to seeing you next time!
