We stayed 3 nights and had a lovely 2 bedroom house in the woods. Everything you need is provided. Good shower, eco toilet which was fine after you stop looking for the flusher! Good clean sheets and towels. 10 minutes walk to One Mile Beach. Swimming pool but we didn't need to use it. Very quiet position, just wish I'd...

Absolutely loved the place and the fact that it was the only place in Port Stephens that was water conscious enough to install drop toilets. We stayed in the Bush Spa Cottage which had all the utensils we needed for cooking, reheating food and even brewing our tea in a teapot. Bathrooms had a spa and a lovely broad shower...

I spent 5 nights here with my family & we were not disappointed, the setting is wonderful, and only 5 minutes walk to the beach. The owner Ian was so friendly and helpful & even brought Tilly the possum round to our cottage one night for my Niece to see, which she is still taking about now. The pool is...

This is the second time my husband and I have been to the Wanderers Retreat and I can guarantee it won't be the last! Both times we have stayed in the tree house and we just adore the place. Lovely balcony surrounded by trees and bushland giving your privacy. Big spa bath with plenty of room to relax in. Owners...

Stayed for two nights in this tranquil eco-lodge. Sitting on the verandah in the quiet bushy surrounds , seemed to be only birds as neighbors. Close to the beach and walks. Well appointed comfy cabins, with super friendly staff. Could stay on much longer.

My wife and I had 6 nights at a Eco Cottage over Easter. We had a great time, cottage was clean, had all the facilities we needed and certainly plan to return. The setting is tranquil but Wanderers Retreat is close enough to all facilities. I highly recommend!

Travelling for work doesn't always mean fun, but this trip was sensational. Usually stay in Raymond Terrace as I work in Williamtown, however I felt a little adventurous and found Wanderers Retreat. Lovely staff, amazing cabins to stay in with everything you need. Waking up for work and listening to the kookaburras outside is blissful and not something you get...
