This place is well located by Soldiers Point and only a short walk to shops and a couple of restaurants and the bowling club. The staff are friendly and helpful and the cabins spacious, comfortable, clean and well appointed. A pool, BBQ area, laundry, and a bus stop at the door. Couldn't ask for more

Really enjoyed our stay at Thou Walla Sunset Retreat, Accommodation is very basic but everything you would need. Great spot to watch the sunset and some great restaurants in walking distance! Would definitely recommend!

Surprised my partner with 2 nights away in one of the glamping tents. So quiet and peaceful which is exactly what we needed. The sunset was incredible. Loved having the luxury of a king sized bed, TV, gas fire place, shower and toilet all included inside the tent. Cuddling in bed listening to the rain was so nice. Staff were...

We tried the Glamtenting option at Thou Wallis. Overall it was OK. The shower was excellent. Not too sure about having an environmental toilet in the tent, but it served its purpose. The heating looked good but was hopeless It is totally inefficient, providing basically none if any heating capability at all. Not sure how it would go in winter....

Purchased Groupon voucher got an amazing deal. When we checked in the staff was very attentive and helpful in every way to ensure we had everything we needed for a great stay. We spent two nights in September which wasn't ideal as the weather was very cold and windy. However the facilities of the tent were better than expected with...

Booked using a Groupon voucher. Staff arranged for late check-in and were extremely attentive when asking for directions the next day. Stayed in a Glamping tent which I couldn't rate highly enough. Great experience and will definitely return later in the summer.

Thou Walla Sunset Retreat is amazing place for weekend getaway from Sydney. Only 2.5 hours drive from Sydney. Very clean, and professionally managed place. I will recommend any couple who wants nice/natural environment to stay, it will be perfect for you.

Myself and my partner spent two nights here in a glamping tent after buying a groupon, it was money well spent, the view was amazing over the water although two of the tents look out more onto the back of the restaurant and marina, so when you book make sure you ask for water views! The tent has a hydro...

My husband and I have just returned from a visit to Thou Wall Sunset Retreat and we couldn't say enough about how great this place is! We booked using a Groupon and received a prawn and oyster platter (huge and so fresh!) and a cook your own breakfast pack (again huge!) such good value. We stayed in a water view...

We stayed there for two nights and went the special package that was available with seafood platter, bottle of wine and breakfast pack. The villa was clean and well kept. We had little interaction with staff but they were kind and helpful when we did. We didn't use the facilities available but they also looked well kept and clean. Very...
