Guestbook reviews 


September 2020 

The thoughtful gestures that greeted us on arrival meant our holiday was off to a great start the moment we stepped in the cabin door. The fire pit was stacked ready to go, with complimentary marshmallows which were appreciated by the kids. Fresh flowers on the kitchen windowsill were a nice touch too. The cabin was so close to the water, we enjoyed plenty of kayaking. We highly recommend this holiday destination and appreciate the exceptional customer service.

Extremely relaxing location with spectacular lake views! The accommodation exceeded our expectations and was so cosy and warm, even for a cold, winter weekend. The kayaks were an added bonus and we got to paddle amongst a pod of dolphins that were in front of the Jetty, it was truly amazing! Kim, the owner, was extremely accommodating with all of our enquiries and was so nice to also assist us with ideas for exploring the area. We even decided to extend our stay as it was such a nice getaway! We will definitely be booking to stay here again very soon and we highly recommend it! Thanks again, Kim!

What a hidden gem! I enjoyed a wonderful and peaceful 3-night break from Melbourne. The views are divine. The decor is retro coastal, cute and so comfortable, it felt like home with everything you need, but better- a place to breathe. Working in the accommodation industry myself, I was impressed with the high standard of cleanliness and quality of linen. I took books to read but spent my time admiring the view for hours. The birdlife, the location to wineries, Lakes Entrance, Metung, and the beautiful walks and waterways. This place is perfect and Kim was a delight to deal with. I don't want to say too much because I hope to go back and this secret spot may get out.

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay!! We loved the room and the view. Waking up to the birds and dolphins was just amazing!!! The highlight for us was the kayaks. We went out in the morning for 2 hours and had dolphins swimming around us, while we were fishing!!

Another stay – seems to be our favourite for some R&R.  We are sure to see you again. Thank you, Kim.

What a lovely serene magical little part of the world you have provided.  Loved everything about our stopover at Jetty Road Retreat!  I only wish we could have stayed longer.  2 days was wonderful though.  Thank you.

Thank you, this place was exactly what we needed.  See you again. LOVE THE BIRDS!

Thank you for your incredibly generous hospitality.  These rooms are just lovely.  We’ll be back for sure.

JRR is an absolute gem.  We loved our stay here.  Fabulous location, excellent hosts and very relaxing and peaceful.  This has been the best holiday break and one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed.  Thank you so much Kim & Steve. 5 stars all round.

What an amazing place with a great view of the lake!  We especially enjoyed the (outdoor) fireplace.  The bird food was great for watching birds really close up.  Thank you very much!

Lovely peaceful break in beautiful Nungurner.  Thank-you Kim & Steve!

Such a relaxing and beautiful place to stay.  Exactly the perfect place for us to stop and spend a few nights on our journey – we don’t want to leave!  Absolutely amazing and would come back in a heartbeat!

Thank you again the chance to be in such a magical place!  We have to tear ourselves away.  Have a great year Kim & Steve.

4 wonderful nights in this relaxing setting was good for the soul.  Even managed to get my old Auntie’s toes wet but couldn’t convince her to jump in a kayak. So peaceful.  Thank-you Kim. Love to come back.

We adored our stay here.  The views are amazing and Kim was so friendly we instantly felt welcome. Thank you.  Beautiful place and service.  The organic eggs were a bonus!

Back for trip 3. Love it so much, lots to do to keep a range of ages happy. Your cosy cove and beautiful wildlife is a joy. Definitely be a trip 4. We escaped 45 degrees – such a cool, comfortable change. Cheers.

After a slightly adventurous trip, we arrived at a small heaven.  Beautiful views, exciting birds, nice surroundings and nice people, even though only on the phone. Relaxing!!!

BEAUTIFUL retreat!  Thank you so much for making our holiday even better.  Cannot say anything wrong about your place.  Will definitely recommend this to family and friends.  See you when we come back again.

Simply the best!!!

Wonderful!  Absolutely and completely wonderful and relaxing stop on our road trip from Sydney to Melbourne.

What a beautiful place – was reading a previous comment which described Nungurner as “magical” – this is how I feel about this amazing place. I immediately feel calm, happy and care-free – when I look out the window – pelicans, parrots, etc – amazing!  Will come back again and again.

As soon as I see that iconic boatshed and the Nungurner Jetty, I feel already relaxed and happy.  I’m back again to this beautiful place.  Jetty Road Retreat has everything.  Thank you for providing clean, comfy units with yummy local produce.  Special memories are made with my treasured family.

Glorious views, sense of exclusion, beautiful bush and birdlife.  Relaxing!
Lovely relaxing place to get back to nature and peace.  Thank you so much for all the comforts to make such a perfect getaway.

Two nights in this beautiful place, we’re lucky!  We’re jealous about the amazing spot and the enthusiastic birds.  Would love them to have in the Netherlands.  Thanks for this wonderful stay.

We are a group of 4 friends from London, on a road trip from Sunshine Coast to Melbourne! This was a beautiful stop on our journey.  We got a boat from Metung which is highly recommended to see some dolphins.  Thanks, Kim for your warm welcome and kind hospitality.

There simply aren’t enough words to describe this magical little place – wow!

We have had the most lovely few days. We’ve laughed and cried, walked and talked, drank and eaten til we could burst. Such a great spot. Susan has been here many times over the years and we love that the vista never changes. We shall return. Thank you so much xxxx …

Just perfect. We would not change a thing--now that we have rediscovered this beautiful place (some 35 years on!) we will return & return!

Thank you, Kim, Steve & family for providing us with the holiday our family so desperately needed. We’ve been blown away with the wildlife experiences including birds feeding on our hands and dolphins swimming and jumping in front of us.
