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

We hope the deep inner peace of Avalon Coastal Retreat has stayed with you. Thank you for this very indepth review and yes, please! Do make Avalon City Retreat part of your next visit as it is also an amazing space, but right in the centre of Hobart.

Very best wishes, Peta. Avalon Retreats booking office.

“An amazing house immersed in a wonderful natural setting”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a wonderful time enjoying the view particularly in the evening, sitting in front of the fire which warmed the whole living area. The facilities were excellent, particularly the kitchen and the larder was so well stocked.
We really liked the art work.

Liked best: The view of the Bay and the warmth of the house
Liked least: The bathroom didn't have enough room for spongebags - the towels took up all the space.

Thank you for your lovely review - the fire at Avalon Coastal Retreat is a joy - specially the way it is set in amongst the glass walls, so you don't miss the view - sea/bush/fire/sea/bush/fire! so relaxing!

We look forward to having you return to stay and thank you for taking the time to review our Avalon Coastal Retreat.

Warm wishes Peta (Avalon Retreats booking office).
