This is a lovely place to stay if you like peace and quiet, beautiful views, wildlife encounters and comfortable, well equipped accommodation. Opposite the marine farm for great shellfish and close to the National Park for walks and views.

Peaceful, relaxing and amazing sea views all make this retreat very special in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The studio accommodation which sits on top of the mountain allows you to see the amazing sea views from almost every part of the tastefully decorated modern accommodation. The king bed with its pristine linen is the most comfortable...

Very new studio lodges overlook the ocean and provide for a tranquil setting for relaxation and quiet time. Hosts were wonderful and helpful and offered practical advice around the area. Load of wildlife roam around the property and the area is a lesson on how destructive man can be towards the environment. Happily the retreat is providing an opportunity to...

From the moment we arrived at the clearly sign-posted turn-off to the closed gate and drove up the well maintained gravel road we knew we were in for something special. The cabins are small and a bit close together. The shower cubicle is a bit small. Otherwise this is a perfect get away bolt hole. The Friendly Beaches view from...

I highly recommend the Eco Retreat for anyone seeking a tranquil place with amazing views and wildlife all around. The picture here does not do this place justice. The views from our semi-private back porch overlooked the ocean from the top of a small mountain. We were surrounded by Tasmanian wildlife, and had evening visits from wallabies, wombats and deer....

We stayed 2 nights at the Eco Retreat and wish we could have stayed longer. We booked the Eco Studio before they had even been completed and the room exceeded our expectations by far. The studios are spacious, with a big comfortable bed, small kitchenette and modern bathroom. The layout of the room is amazing - nothing compares to waking...

Wow, what a place this is! The 'away from it all' location, the wonderful standard of accommodation, the fantastic vista from your balcony and local wildlife up close! We spent three nights here during a nine day tour of Tasmania and were very sorry to have to leave! This has to be one of the best places that we have...

We stayed here for 3 nights over the new year. The cabins are well appointed, good finish and great KS comfortable bed. The view from the small wooden deck is great, a couple of chairs help you unwind after a day of adventure... The drive from Coles Bay road is about 3-4 Kms up a gravel track, it feels you...

Very enjoyable stay. Lodge was clean, comfy and had lots of space. The view from Lodge 1 is excellent and the wooded balcony area is great for a glass of vino. Virginia and Phillipa are good hosts and they suggested the best place to see Wombats - we saw two! All-in-all, an excellent experience.

We stayed two nights. The location was perfect, just outside the national park. The rooms were new and had a little kitchenette. We brought fresh oysters, mussels, scallops and fish back to the cabin for dinner and watched the sunset over the ocean over a glass of wine from the local area!! A great find!!!
