We had been stuck in holiday traffic and I remembered this place from about 15 years ago so we left the road in the middle of Gerringong and there was a room available.
The owners have created a gorgeous place that was comfortable enough to stay in and central enough to move around from.
We ate at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast; for in-house food, it was really good. I'd eat there even if we didn;t stay.
This little town is gorgeous and the swimming beach is very special with good waves and lots of spaces for small kids to muck around.
We recently stayed in room 14 for 2 nights with our 11 months old son.
Our room was originally allocated on the bottom floor with the view of the garden and visitors parking at the front entrance of the retreat. But we were so glad that we had the option to chose another room located on the second floor (room14), generous size balcony, great view overlooking the ocean and the hills. The room size was spacious, enough for our son to wonder around happily. Clean sheets and good size bathroom. The only downfall was that the tiles in the bathroom/shower was very slippery when wet. The room smelt heavenly and the bed was comfy, although I found the that pillows weren't as comfortable to rest my head on, however, my partner found it very comfortable.
The food at the restaurant was delicious and had really good service. We liked that we could sit out on the balcony during dinner service as it made us felt more comfortable to dine away from other guests with our tired and whinging 11 months old son.
We really enjoyed our stay. We felt refreshed and relaxed. We look forward to our return.
