The B&B was clean and the hosts were able to accommodate to dietary needs for breakfast. The B&B looks out over a tranquil bush setting where we watched wallabies lazily wander by and there were so many birds and butterflies. The B&B is close to the beach - we were easily able to walk to Pam Cove to sample the...

Wonderful hosts, relaxing deck looking into the rainforest. Woke up to the sound of birds every morning. The breakfast was a delicious selection of fresh fruit, muesli, crumpets and jam and even some fresh eggs laid by the owners hen. Very close to the beach. Highly recommended

I was given a 3 day retreat as a birthday gift from my husband. The retreat included 3 nights at the b&b, light breakfast every day, healthy lunch every day, a massage and facial, and a treatment. Yoga was also offered. Upon arrival I was welcomed by Alix who showed me my room. I stayed in the air conditioned green...

Thanks so much for letting everyone know about the retreat and 3 day package. Shivany and I are so happy you really enjoyed it and felt you were definitely more relaxed after the three days. You are so lucky to have such a caring husband as well. Lovely meeting you. Kind regards Alix

Everything is magical: nature and calmness help you to find balance and work on your inner peace. Alix and Perce, the owners, are super friendly and nice. Rooms are wonderful, location is amazing. Shivany is there to offer you meditation, yoga, energy healing or even SPA sessions. You definitely need to come here to disconnect and find your balance. Priceless!

Clifton Beach is one of those places that stays in my heart for many reasons, one being that I lived there with my husband for just under 8 years back in the 80's and 90's. So when I go back and stay there, it's like going back in time, and staying at Clifton Beach Retreat, is tranquil and perfect for...

We spent 7 nights here in October 2014. A beautiful place to stay and very private and only a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach. Our hosts Alix and Perce were there for our needs but gave us complete privacy. Our room was immaculate and breakfast was plenty. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to...

I stayed for a couple of weeks and found the vista of the trees from the almost treehouse room just wonderful for resting and relaxing. There is a great little kitchenette in the room and the host lent me juicing equipment that I put to good use. There is free wifi which was a real bonus as I had some...

Beautiful setting only minutes walk from the beach. Bush surrounding the property, and a beautiful salt water swimming pool! It was a delight to be able to have our dog with us too. I highly recommend this accommodation. Host was lovely too:)

Alix and Perce would bend over backward to help you! It was a lovely location and such a peaceful place, we stayed in both the green and blue room and loved waking up in the morning to see the kangaroos sunbaking from our deck!

Alix and Pearce have created a great place to just relax, away from the tourist bustle. Their property is in a residential area, so its very quiet but just a street away from the beach.
