Ammmmmaaazing place!! ”
We absolutely loved our 5 days here! Peace and quiet in a forest, what more could you want! We stayed in one of the gorgeous tree houses and loved it! We had some cute possums visit our deck nightly - so friendly. The owners were so lovely and helpful. We were given a map of the grounds and area and pamphlets on things to do and what was close by. The complimentary wine and chocolates went down a treat as well. They went above and beyond. We cannot wait to go back. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking to really get away from busy life and enjoy some tranquility.

Hi Caitlin - We are so happy you enjoyed your special stay at Wanderers. We agree, it is a wonderful place in the rainforest, but still so close to the beach and facilities. We look forward to your next visit.

Acceptable”
I arrived to a very open, fan on, unit which I closed up in the late afternoon to visit a friend who lives locally. When I returned the smell was horrible. Musty and mouldy - so much that during the night I decided to open all windows and turn on the fan again. If composting toilets are a problem to you don't go here but I don;t think it was the source of the smell. The sound from rampaging children in the unit next door kept me out of bed and the parents were loud until midnight. After lack of sleep the 5.00 am calls from the rooster across the road was not welcomed and it did not stop crowing. I had to continue to leave all windows open the next day so felt my possessions were not secure (and nor was I at night). 2nd night tenants in another unit partied and swore until 1.30 am when one person needed to vomit in the garden. I wouldn't vomit in a composting toilet either!!!! Vomiting woke up the roster who then crowed on and off. There was a wooden spoon in the utility drawer that was covered in mould. I wash up everything before I use it and the frying pan and pot were not clean by any measure. No way could I use the wooden spoon. There was no phone reception and no cable TV so when I was not visiting my sick friend I was left only with my book to pass the time. Could not even text or call anyone without leaving the unit. I have stayed in several locations at Boat Harbour, One Mile and Anna Bay and this was by far the worst. Unfortunately for Wanderers retreat I have spread the word amongst the locals who will now know to advise visitors not to book this accommodation.

Nerine, thankyou for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience. After your visit, we have become the new owners of Wanderers Retreat. We are already putting in new infrastructure to ensure our guests enjoy their stay, in particular to ensure great and reliable mobile and WiFi. The eco toilets are clean, do not smell and are good for the environmental. But yes they are different and take some getting use to. Should you return to Wanderers we hope that it will be a better experience for you. Regards Vivienne & Barry

Wilderness retreat close to the beach”
Flexible and accomodating, close to beach, quiet location
We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottages and had a lovely time. The cabin had all that we needed for a weekend away, which was good since it was our first trip with a baby. Ian was wonderful, helping us change our reservation to a night earlier at the last minute when we realised that we had booked the wrong dates on our drive up. Lovely location out in the woods.

excellent eco cottage but lacking amenities”
this hotel does what it says: it's an eco retreat.
The Cabins are located in forest/bushland and the owners are very friendly and on hand to answer any questions. Koala's live in the area and as you walk from your cabin you stand a good chance of seeing one. We caught a few as we walked to the beach. I would point out that the cabins are not very well appointed. This could be a concern in the winter, or if you are a business traveler. However, if you are from the big smoke and are looking for a nature retreat - the Wanderers Retreat will hit the spot!

Cosy and relaxing escape”
Close to the beach, beautiful surroundings
As soon as we arrived, service was really friendly. Our treehouse was surrounded by the beautiful natural surroundings and possums and koalas living there. The room had everything necessary, for a weekend away.
