The chirping of frogs in the marshes, the chittering of birds in the trees, the pattering of rain on the roof and rustling of leaves in the breeze at Venus Bay Eco Retreat all adds up to one of my favourite soundscapes. Comfortable lodgings, a...More

The owner is a lovely lady, and the retreat is in an amazing block of animal filled bushland. However, if you're a couple that wants 100% privacy, this is not the place for you. The website doesn't state that the owner's residence is about 10m...More
