This lodge is immersed in nature, we saw lots of wildlife, loved the kangaroos coming to drink water from the pond in the front garden at night. Lots of shade on the front porch, and the bath with a view was quite special..

Hi Ursula, thanks for your review and for choosing to stay at the eco retreat. Glad you enjoyed the wildlife and the forest location, I realise it's not ideally set up for a young family but was pleased to hear your boys enjoyed their time here too. Best wishes to you and family for the New Year 2018.

We had a lovely weekend away at Mae's Eco-Retreat! The house/cottage in itself was roomy, beautifully decorated and just delightful! It is isolated from the road, down by a scenic swamp in the middle of the bush. As we got introduced to the house and the area by Mae upon Check-…

Thanks for your review Vance, it was great to meet you and Michelle and I hope you will stay here again. I love hosting people who are willing to support the conservation efforts that are such primary aspects of the eco retreat, and of course, the show stoppers are the amazing wildlife. So glad you enjoyed it. My best wishes to you both, Mae.

Secluded with lots of wildlife, it was a perfect three night get away. The only issue was that it was so wonderful it was hard to leave to visit the many attractions in the area. Mae's knowledge of the flora and fauna added an extra bonus. Would definitely recommend!

Great for a private getaway, relax in a bush setting, the only sounds are the animals and the ocean. Short drive or 15 min walk to the beach. Beautiful bath with great view outside. Nice deck area to sit and watch kangaroos and a range of bush birds. We brought our 1 year old wh…

Thanks for your review Sarah, I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay. I have included information about the deck not having a barrier for future guests, I agree the eco retreat is not an ideal venue for small children. Great you enjoyed the wildlife, relaxing in the bushland setting and the abundant bird life. Thanks again, Mae.
