“A Piece of Paradise”
Reviewed April 18, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This place is unreal. In a quiet part of Vincentia, and directly opposite a secluded sheltered beach. We took our stand up paddle boards with us and when we woke up each morning we would go for a paddle and swim before breakfast on the balcony! Only a 50m walk to the crystal clear waters of Jervis Bay.
Outside the house is a pathway which takes you to the White Sands walking track only a few hundred metres away....a gorgeous 3km coastal bush walk to Hyams Beach.
Have stayed here twice now and plan to go back for a third, fourth and fifth time.
Thanks Sandra and Ken!

“Absolutely Wonderful Gem of a Property”
Reviewed April 25, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Retro Sands is a unique delight. It easily and comfortably accommodates 2 families of 4 with more than enough space for everyone. There are so many wonderful touches from toiletries, towels, hand warmers, a hugely generous welcome pack and more. Whilst Retro in name and style, it has all modern conveniences and is really well appointed. There are retro games, books and movies - all of which are great fun. The garage / games room was a great hit with the children too. It's in a quiet residential area directly across the road from the beach and has a fantastic cycle path which takes you all the way to Huskisson on the doorstep. It's really well located for exploring Jervis Bay and all it has to offer, close to all amenities, with shops and restaurants just a few minutes drive away. The house may be retro, but everything about it is great quality (linens and towels too). It is beautifully and immaculately maintained. The back patio has recently been extended and remodelled, to include a lovely outdoor BBQ & eating area. It's a real gem and we will definitely be back.

“Fantastic property for a perfect holiday”
Reviewed January 30, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had such an amazing time at the property again. This is the second time we stayed and definitely not the last!
The location is just to die for right across from the beach. You don't have to touch the car at all until you leave. There's a park down the road for the kids to play on but there are plenty of games for them to play here. ...table tennis, snakes and ladders. Movies, books etc. Two families fit perfectly. One family upstairs with their own bathroom and kitchen and the same downstairs. ....just perfect.
The owners are a delight to deal with.

Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Had a lovely weekend stay in perfect accomodation in a perfect location.Accross the road from the beach and only a few minutes away from the whitest beach on earth.The accomodation itself was perfectly spotless and clean most importantly comfortable, with all the amenities that you need and even a lovely back yard .If you are looking for a good escape from the crowds of the north coast and want to just chill , this is the spot.Can not more highly recommend this gem of a place.

“Relaxing and exceeded expectations”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Came to Vincentia for the first time after doing some online research around the south coast. Then found this place that was not to far from shops, walkable to the beach, suitable for a 7 and 3 YO and had other features in the area.

Once we arrived we were highly impressed from the first minute. The home was truly a wonderful holiday home, that set the scene for us across the next 5 nights. Sandra the owner was also wonderful from the time of touching base to check all was ok and never mind the welcome package and thoughtful card she wrote for us. None of this was expected, yet so nice to walk into after working flat out over the preceding weeks.

The interior design was awesome all very retro and everything we needed was available. There was not one thing we could say was missing or could be done differently.

We have already jumped online to see when next it could be available to rebook, however working in with school holidays it would seem that all previous guests have all had the same experience as ourselves.

So finally, thanks again to Sandra in all the work and the wondering holiday home we were able to experience.

We will strive to come back again, that is for sure.
