It was so wonderful to return. I always knew this place had stolen a piece of my heart, but I didn't realise how big a piece until we came around the last bend and the jetty came into view. Once again everything was perfect, from the cabin and amenities, to the views, the peacefulness and the birds. I think the birds will miss Ray - he loves feeding them! We loved exploring - the koala trail at Raymond Island was a definite highlight - but this wonderful, peaceful, relaxing cabin amongst the trees was easily the best thing about our week. We promise not to leave it so long before our next stay! Trish & Ray. Wagga Wagga

A meticulously prepared cabin that catered to our every need; stunning views, beautiful birds, great take out food from Chez Joe's cafe in Metung - what's not to love?! A perfect stay! Thank you Kim, Mark & Jess, USA

Dear Kim & family, thank you for sharing your private sanctuary with our family. You have a natural treasure here and we feel a two day stay does not do justice. You have gone above and beyond t omake this place not just an accommodation, but also a home. The lovely jam, the nespresso machine, the wonderful Nicholson River shampoo, the bird seed, the kayaks, are all little touches that cannot be captured by the five stars of Airbnb. Wishing you all the best with everything you do. When the hustle and bustle gets too much for us again, we hope to return to this little gem tucked away in the tranquil, serene and beautiful Nungurner jetty. 10/10 will return and recommend. Love Ong & family.

A magical tree house in the sky... Adored our stay in Cabin #5 from the beautiful birdlife to soaring views, we even braved a kayak and swim in the cold winter waters. Thank you for sharing your retreat with us. Lori & John, Warburton

Dear Kim & family, Thank you very much for making our stay a very pleasant one indeed. We really appreciated the attention to detail including the hand-written note of welcome, the gift of mustard, the use of local products where possible and the overall presentation of the cabin. We found everything to be in excellent condition and we felt very comfortable in all aspects. We wish you well in the future, Kind regards, Garry & Judi

Dear Kim, We have loved it here, so beautiful looking through the trees to the boats bobbing on the water, and so many colourful birds to delight us. The cabin has everything that we could possibly need, every little detail thought about. Thank you for the book with all the ideas of what to do in this lovely area. We will return, and nearly forgot, thank you for the jam! Anne & Greg, East St Kilda

Dear Kim, We are so lucky to have found this little slice of heaven on earth! The cabins were so comfortable and clean. The kayaks gave us a fantastic opportunity to explore the wilderness. Some dolphins swam metres from us - a memory that we will never forget! We will be back! Maggie, Ben, Samuel & Daniel, Melbourne

June 2022

A beautiful stay, thank you!! Relaxing, full of exploration - we looked at many of your recommendations and were so impressed!! A comfy hideaway - we'll be back!! Thank you for the much needed break! Obi & Vanessa xxx

We had a gorgeous time in Nungurner. Thanks so much for providing such an inviting space for us. Warm, cosy, and everything we needed. Emma, Liam, Stella, Joni and Lani!

May 2022

Thank you for an amazing getaway. The cabins are cute as buttons and the view is amazing. This was the perfect spot to hosts our huge family reunion. We will definitely be back! Thank you to Kim for being so accommodating and attentive. Joanne, Angie & Brandon P.S Thank you so much for the jam!

Dear Kim, We had a cosy stay in Cabin 6. The views are beautiful and we now have fond memories of Nungurner. Thank you for accommodating our family for Rose's 60th birthday celebrations. It was so worthwhile coming all teh way from Cape Town, South Africa to be with them all in this magical setting. Patrick & Margie Ford

What a relaxing place to spend our anniversary. It has been amazing. Thank you for being able to surprise my partner with the rose petals in our room. Thanks again for a great few days away. Sandra & Jason

This may just be one of the most peaceful places we have stayed! We really appreciate all the attention to detail; the little things that made our stay special such as the wonderful local guide book, the room amenities, and the sweet retro-scandi furniture. And what a view! Thanks for our stay, it was perfect. Cathy & Pete, Kew East

April 2022

I did plan to go hiking every day but ended up going nowhere because I couldn't drag myself away from the view! The only time I left the deck was to go kayaking with my wife which was a total delight. Beautiful place, Michael Johnson, Birmingham, England

Simply the most ideal location for a perfect holiday. We all loved it! Thank-you! Clara, Victoria, Helen, Xavier

Such a unique opportunity to relax for a few days in a perfect environment, especially for a bird watcher from a woodland area. Our cabin (5) was very comfortable but time outside beside the fire was so serene. 3 days the lake was mirror calm and we kayaked over to Flanagan's Island so easily. It is a lovely place to walk. We could have spent weeks exploring. Cathy, Macedon, Jan, Kergunyah

The planets aligned (literally) as we enjoyed our stay here in your wonderful location. We have explored a little part of the lakes we were not familiar with and have zoomed past many times. Now we know a secret! We will be recommending this place to everyone who needs to know. Thanks, Drew & Michelle

March 2022

Our second visit to Jetty Road Retreat! Magical place. Different cabin and outlook. Stunning spot. Feeling very privileged to have stayed again. This time, 4 nights! Perfect. Thank you Kim & Steve, a very special, tranquil place. Another return visit essential! Judy & Denis

I'm so glad I finally made it to beautiful Jetty Road Retreat! The peaceful setting, friendly birds and warm cabin was the best way to escape from Melbourne. Thanks for an amazing stay and for providing such a special place to rejuvenate and relax. An absolute credit to you Kim. Wish we could stay longer! xx Tash, Britt, Pat & Keron

Such a beautiful cabin, loved the views, our 10 month old loved the birdfeeding, kept him occupied for hours. Thank you Kim, next time we will be back and take granny here. Bel, Carlos & Byron

February 2022

Staying at Jetty Road Retreat was JUST what we needed! We felt relaxed and rejuvenated. This is such a special spot - grateful thanks to Kim and Steve for everything. Yummy marmalade! We definitely hope to return in the near future. Liz & Andrew

Such an amazing part of the world! Steeped in history and beautifully perched in nature, we are grateful for our time here reliving and making memories. Mary, Peter, Felicity and Ashly

Dear Kim, Steve, Ray and Maureen, This past few days spent here has filled our hearts. The special bond that we have for Nungurner has never left and we feel thankful to be able to take a trip down memory lane with you all. We plan on this being an annual event for our families and a highlight on our calendar. The children have had a ball, just like we knew they would. Thank you so much! Paula & Lee Bowman

January 2022

Once again we have had an absolute ball! Thanks Kim for your kind welcome and suggestions for visits. For anyone reading this, there are 2 crimson rosellas that are particularly friendly (we called them Steve and Bill) If you're patient they'll eat out of your hand - then others will follow! A trip to Cape Conran is also well worth the effort for its rugged beauty. The boys say this is their favourite holiday so far. Cabin 3 feels like home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have. Jeff, Karen-Ann, Patrick and Callum.

Thank you for such a beautiful spot to holiday. The birds, view and the quiet was just what our family needed. Perfect little spot to get lots in nature. Thank you also for the beautiful local jam. The Warnes

Dear Kim & Steve & family, Thank you so much for all the thoughtful things that added to our lovely experience. We all really needed a break and our stay here meant we could totally relax! Steve thanks for helping Michael launch the seagull (boat). It made our first few hours a lot less stressful than they would have otherwise been. We hope this year treats you well and we are certain to return! Angela, Michael, Bella & crew xx

December 2021

Dear Kim & Steve, I loved it here! The beds were really comfortable. Me and my dad loved using the kayaks and we all like the movie 'Night at the Museum'! The bird seed was gret and I made a bird friend (cockatoo) named Jeffrey. The bird book then helped us to identify what the species were of the different birds. Gemma (Claire & Simon)

We had such a wonderful time! The kids enjoyed feeding the birds. It's hard to plan for other things to do when you have a spectacular view in front of you. This place is very special. Thank you Kim! Cheryl

Bliss! The most divine view and a very comfortable cabin. A much needed break and a lovely way to celebrate our wedding anniversary and birthday. We will be back! Thanks Kim! Sarah & Mark

November 2021

Dear Kim, What a slice of paradise you have here! To say we enjoyed our stay here is the ultimate understatement! Breathtaking views, beautiful birds and the sounds of the lake on the shore, each morning and evening, were so soothing. Totally relaxed and refreshed. It is so hard to leave! Judy & Denis. PS The seafood platter from The Farmer & The Cook was magnificent!

October 2021

Thank you so much to Ray, Maureen, Kim & Steve. Oh my goodness, if there is a heaven, this is it... Everything and more we could have asked for. Thank you so much for having us stay. The retreat was perfect, the view was just amazing, Such a peaceful place, the birds were beautiful, lovely walks, kayaking and fishing. Graeme was fortunate enough to have met up with Ray and Maureen one evening while checking out the jetty, he loved their chat... Thank again for a great week away. Graeme & Brenda. PS Thanks for the jam Kim, it was delicious.

On our two week holiday we spent 4 nights here and it was by far our favourite place. Stunning location and styling and cosy feel. Birds and activities were wonderful. We will be back and we will tell everyone about this place. Thank you so much. Samantha, Lachlan and Ella (9 months old).

September 2021

What a gem! We thought we would be driving around to all the adjacent town but decided it was too beautiful and relaxing here to need to do that. Thanks for all the lovely touches and the backgammon! Yep the birdy views, fresh air and peace is just perfect! Connie & Matt

Thanks so much for a lovely time in your cabin and in Nungurner! Our stay was relaxing and exciting! Kayaking on the lake, walks around the area, early morning photos to capture the sunrise on the jetty (5.30am), sunset in Metung eating pizza (the Local), segway at Lakes Entrance (100% must do!) then planned paddle with Venture Out at Lakes Entrance.
