We enjoyed our four days staying in the beautiful, spacious Garden Retreat. The weather & the setting were perfect for reading around the pool or watching the cricket - the most relaxing holiday in years. There was an amazing variety of birds & boats enjoying the waters of the Murray visible from our window through the pine trees.
The house is fabulously appointed, from the large beach towels, wine glasses, crockery to the barbeque & out door living areas. Wendy provided us with great suggestions for breakfast & dinners & with generous provisions for preparing our own meals.
This was our second visit & we will be back!
