“A retro paradise straight on the beach”

We had an absolute fabulous experience here in retro beach house. One of the best weekend away we had with out group.
The positives:
- Great caring owner. Really quick communication and good recommendation.
- possibility of late check out. We didnt need to leave the property until 5pm, which pretty much gave us another day of holidays!!
- Right on the beach. The beach is literally 20 metres away and its protected from wind so it is an ideal place to swim, play soccer, beach volleyball etc. We had a great day here with our group.
- they just finished a beautiful entertaining deck in the backyard and it is absolutely amazing. Great covered seating area, bbq, bit of grass to play soccer...awesome.
- The house is fully embracing the 70's and it is done in an amazing ARTsy way.
- The house felt very cozy and homely. You just dont wont to leave. Not many places we stayed previously feel homely and this was just a great bonus.
- Location is obviously perfect. 5 mins to Huskinsson, 8 min to Hayman beach.

Overall, we had a fabulous time here and will be back.

“Fabulous place without fault”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at Retro Sands as part of a family holiday and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Even before we arrived, I was impressed with the service I received from the owner, Sandra, but the attention to detail lavished on the house was even better once we got inside. I have stayed in a lot of holiday rentals, but this one had the best stocked kitchen, garden and welcome basket I have ever seen. Every possible eventuality is catered for from kids' toys in the garage, to enough glassware to host a party. The retro styling was absolutely brilliant, but it did not impact on the quality of the accommodation; for example, the beds were really comfy and the appliances in the upstairs kitchen were all modern (still loved the old fridge downstairs, though).

And quite aside from the house being fantastic, the location is excellent. The beach is just across the road and my, what a beach. It is a really lovely place to relax and in the evening, you will probably only share it with a lone dog walker. In addition, there is a shopping centre with good restaurants and a supermarket a short drive or walk away.

All in all, a wonderful place to stay in Jervis Bay.

“The most perfect beach house and location”
Reviewed 10 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

The location is absolutely the best, the beach is practically at your front door.
The house is magnificent, done 70s style and it has such a beautiful warm feeling, very clean and the linen smelt so fresh. Yes, everything is provided, even beach towels. The kitchen has everything that you require, very impressed with the nespresso coffee machine.
Sandra the owner is so lovely and had a hamper of goodies for us when we arrived. This is by far the best beach house we have ever stayed at. We really loved it, and will definitely stay there again.

“So Serene with Gorgeous Views!”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Having worked in the travel and customer service industry for over 20years, I can say without a doubt the service was exceptional. It's evident the owners put a lot of love, care and commitment into providing the best experience for their guests.

Everything felt and smelt superbly fresh and clean, from the towels, to the linen and the kitchenware. It's a wonderful nostalgic trip as the colours, style and feel of the property take you back to the 70's, yet all the extra modern and quality touches, give you that extra luxurious feel.

I love that it was just a stroll across the road to the beach and so central to the bars and restaurants. However a car would definitely make it easier to get to see all the nearby sites.

Overall it was a great stay, very pleasant and peaceful and I'd absolutely come back again.

“what a wonderful to stay at Jervis Bay”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed in Jarvis Bay for a couple of nights in this lovely holiday house, as we walked in we already felt warmly welcomed with the Easter welcoming package! The house is in a lovely location just off the beach, which had wonderful views and the holiday house was very clean and big which satisfied our needs. There was enough beds for all of us, also the hot water system was very efficient we had no problems with hot water (Which was very nice)… The kitchen had everything we needed to cook from chopping boards to knives, as well as pans, the neighborhood is very friendly and very quiet we never had any problems. In my opinion this beach house was the center of everything as far as travelling to other parts of Jervis Bay the beach house was not far from anything. Nothing felt better than to wake up and hear the sounds of waves and the smell of the ocean!!
