Quiet Retreat across the bay from Melbourne and very close to the Metro Train - free parking if you rent a car at the Williams town main station. Charming, boutique nautical themed place to stay with above and beyond service - it's like staying with an old family friend.

Lovely furnishing throughout, quiet and only a few minutes to the water. Friendly and breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed a special romantic weekend there we won’t forget. Price was very reasonable. We stayed in the captains room worth the little extra.

Wonderful welcome from Melissa... beautiful relaxing accommodation with a great bed. Very spacious and lovely lounge area. We had a December booking but would be just as perfect in any season. Leave your car and walk around beautiful Williamstown - bay views across to city.

Response from Melissa M, Owner at Captains Retreat

Thanks Janda!! Its the height of summer here now but the garden is designed and performing perfectly for summer. We planted forrest pansy trees about ten years ago that now shade the table and chairs perfectly. The big heart shaped maroon leaves turn fabulous colours in the autumn and then drop for the winter leaving the garden very light and able to trap the soft winter sun - particularly near that lovely big balinese door. Best regards, Melissa
