“Stunning architecture and location”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The position of Avalon Coastal Retreat is second to none, on a small peninsular looking across the ocean to the granite Freycinet Range and down to the crashing surf on a shell filled beach.

“Rejuvenate”

What a spot - the wow factor as we walked in didn't mellow during our two night stay. This retreat is exactly that - a calm, beautiful space to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul.

Avalon had us, a family of five who can never usually sit still, chilled out and relaxed - board games in front of the fire, walks down to the beach, catching up on magazines.

180 degree windows, a commanding view over the ocean and the open plan lay out of this retreat gave us plenty of space to feel freedom, even while inside.

The little conveniences made it extra special too - yummy brekkie, stocked up fire wood, fully decked out kitchen with ample 'equipment' for self catering, ensuites in each of the rooms, floor heating and a selection of pillows to ensure a good night's sleep.

Dear Karli, thank you so much for your lovely review of Avalon Coastal Retreat. We LOVE hearing that your entire family of five actually sat still and relaxed during your stay! It's so lovely to know that those extra details we like to take care of, like the extra pillows, gourmet provisions and fire wood all contribute to the magic of a memorable family holiday at the Coastal Retreat. Thank you again for taking the time to write these lovely words, and we do hope we will see you again one day.
Very best wishes,
-P

How happy we are that you chose this gorgeous location to celebrate your wedding with family and friends. We hope the happy memories will stay with you for a long and happy marriage! Please come back to celebrate your anniversary too - we have Rocky Hills waiting if you just want to be alone in 250 acres of Tasmanian Bush.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review. Warmest wishes, Peta

Thank you Sharon for your wonderful review. The sunrise is one of the highlights of Avalon, as is the moon rising across Great Oyster Bay and for those of us who love that wakening Avalon is bliss! Thank you for the mention of the blinds, we will investigate further options.

We will very much look forward to your next visit, maybe just for 2 at Rocky Hills Retreat which is such a different and still amazing experience! Or Avalon City Retreat in Hobart as part of another journey. Whenever it happens, we will be here to welcome you back,

Warm wishes and thank you, Peta
