“Retromania - The good, the fab, the funky”
Reviewed 25 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Loved the funky memorabillia of the 50's/60's era; lots of it took me back to my childhood with the furniture and accessories. Great to have all the reading and entertainment materials on hand. It was also good that we still had all the mod cons particularly on 38 degree days!! Loved the closeness to the beach. Back yard was great for our doggies to. Appreciated all the tips for popular spots to visit in the area. Overall, nice attention to detail, with beach umbrellas provided, umbrella left out as forecast for possible showers, aircon on when we arrived for our comfort; its the little things that can make a big difference. Had a great stay!! Sonja

“Retrofitted Fabulousness by the Beach”
Reviewed 29 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We spent 12 great nights at the Aldinge Beach Reef Retreat and loved it.
The house itself is comfortable and clean with great period details throughout. There are plenty of books, DVD's and games for rainy days. The backyard is huge and the is great for BBQ's.

The location is great too. Close to the Aquatic Reserve which provides snorkelling opportunities and a 5 min drive to lovely surf beaches. Great restaurants are close by, there is corner shop 10mins walk away and a bigger complex about 10mins away by car.

The wineries and Willunga are close as well. We also went south past Yankalilla to the pretty beaches of Second Valley and the serene water of Rapid Bay.

A great holiday - highly recommended!

Property had everything you would need including super dog safe back yard. The owners provided excellent correspondence. It's not so shiny that you are scared to even walk in the place. Comfortable. Loved it.
