Guest Comments

The host was very Kind and told us a lot about the area and the facility. Also we enjoyed to use the kitchen. The garden is nice and it is very relaxing to hear the birds.
However, we couldn't really enjoy the stay as the rondavel wasn't comfortable for us. The bed blankets seemed to be old, the towels had no fresh touch at all and the walls have been painted with a colour that smelled extremely bad. I think, that kind of colour should not be used indoor. We got a headache from it.

Our stay at the retreat was most pleasant. The treatment overall was excellent no hassels at all. I would definitely recommend this retreat to anybody who wishes to go to Storms River.

Our hostess Kitty was very friendly and informative. The cottages were clean & comfortable. The communal kitchen had everything to make self catering a pleasure.
Passing traffic tended to be noisy (Friday evening) but was not a problem.
