We had a cabin over looking the water,coming from the Riverina, that was relaxing in itself. It was great for the dog and the cabin was clean and had everything we needed. We shall definitely return......... probably within the 12 month period and take advantage of the great 10% off offer!!

We had a one bed cabin looking over the water. Very modern bathroom and kitchenette and beautifully clean. The enclosed balcony was great for our dog. We were on our way down the coast for a birthday celebration so was the perfect location to have a break on the drive down from Sydney. We would thoroughly recommend south coast retreat....

We had two tents next to each other for a family weekend break from Sydney. Sadly the weather was somewhat disappointing but the tents certainly were not. They were extremely well appointed with quality linen on very comfortable beds. One tent was provided with a camp bed for our granddaughter which again was very comfortable. Excellent bathrooms though a few...

Our only fear is that if we make this review too glowing it will encourage others to experience the friendly welcome we receive and the place may be full when next we want to book. If you are looking for...

We had booked to check in, with our four-legged son, to South Coast Retreat on 6th Feb afternoon after we had handed in our motor home for repairs at 7.00am. But, we had arrived Nowra on the 5th and it was extremely hot and still. We called SCR and asked Simon if we could check in a day early. He...
