Stunning views. The open fire was just lovely (wood was provided). Great nights sleep - beds were comfortable. Would love to come back.
Designer Lux for the whole familyFleur - 24th January 2020
We have stayed at Neds Retreat twice in the last year - its that good! The house itself is a modern masterpiece but still comfortable and cozy enough for the kids. They have seriously thought of everything & Liz from Elux is just so accommodating and happy to help. I love how you just feel so secluded but Lorne itself is only 20 mins away with a pub & general store literally minutes away also. Modern liveable luxury at its finest. 5
LOVED itGordana - 24th July 2019
Thanks for an amazing escape to our happy place 'Sep Creek'. Ned's Retreat was really beautiful we loved the fireplace, views and of course the sound system (once we figured out how to use it LOL). We'll def be back and would highly recommend.
Amazing in every way!Denielle - 15th July 2019
We are a family of 5 with ages ranging from 16yrs to 54yrs. We all thought that Ned's retreat was amazing in every way. There was something to do for all ages, whether it was going for a walk to the beach, playing pool, watching a movie or just sitting near the fire place reading a book. Thank you, we wouldn't hesitate to come back!!
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!Deni - 12th July 2019
We are a family of 6, our kids ages ranging from 22yrs - 16yrs (all pretty much adults). We thought the house catered for all our needs, which comprised of the awesome sound system, the ease of use for house amenities from the iPad home touch system, the pool table, the fire place was beautiful (especially as it was cold outside) and of course the spectacular views of not only the Bass Strait but the trees and greenery when looking out of the other windows (in the bedrooms, etc). Overall, it was an amazing stay and we would recommend it to everyone. We didn't want to leave. Thank you, thank you.
CLASSLANCE - 4th April 2019
A fantastic weekend in a fantastic house with 3 adult children and their partners. Only downside is that the surroundings are still a work in progress but it is a minor issue. Sound system has been mentioned in other reviews, it is first class, and the movie library is the best we have seen. Problem though, took us half an hour to decide what to watch! Thoroughly recommended.
Wonderful Viewsolivia524 - 4th March 2019
This house was a dream to stay in. The views were wonderful and it was a treat when we woke up to look out at the ocean. The bedding was great and the coffee machine was a great addition. The sound system was positively INSANE and was definitely taken advantage of. We didn't want to leave. Only taking a star off for some minor cleanliness issues and wifi hiccups but it was very quickly fixed by the owner.
Wow!!Adam - 26th November 2018
Wow!! Where do I start? This house has it all, with amazing ocean views throughout. High end finishes galore in all the rooms, finished off with the latest easy to use tech in all areas of the house. The crystal clear Sonos sound system and the multiple TVs with an endless library of movies, music etc. spread out across the house ensured that we were always entertained. The house is fully equipped with the latest and greatest cooking facilities both inside and outside on the Webber we could of literally never left the house all weekend. All 3 bathrooms have great finishes, however the absolute highlight was the upstairs ensuite with a double shower and bathtub that has huge window with a breathtaking view overlooking the forest. We loved our 3 night stay and wish we could of stayed longer, and will most certainly book again, I cant recommend this house enough. The only issue was that we all walked a away with a severe case of house envy.
Just WowJohnW - 11th July 2018
What an amazing place this is !! - way up high in the trees with a great view of the water. The open wood fire is just beautiful to crank up and stick marshmallows on a stick into. The music and movie system in incredible with everything available through Spotify and Netflix and more Our kids loved the pool table and they're downstairs making all the noise while we're upstairs playing with the fire - highly recommend this place !!
Perfect getawarMeryem - 30th April 2018
We went on a weekend getaway with two families and definitely wished we could stay more. Spent the whole weekend at the house simply because of how stunning it was. Very luxurious and modern house with alot of small details thought about. Looks even better than the photos, clean and just an all rounder. We’re just glad we went on the weekend and not weekday as the construction next door was quite loud.
Modern house with great views!Abhi - 25th April 2018
Very nice location. 10 minutes walk to the beach. Great amenities.
