The Chew Family
Will definitely look to book again!
November 2021

Minnamurra and this holiday home was a great discovery, not too far from Sydney but a world away !!! “Tranquil Retreat” is indeed a great place to relax and enjoy a family holiday. Our family ( parents and 2 boys teen and preteen) loved exploring the river on kayaks and paddle boards provided, and discovering Mystics beach on the other side of the river. A private beach!! We loved being situated on the Kiama coastal walk, the nearby headland and whale watching platform - great scenery!!. Being there in winter, the double glazing and the wood fire made it very cozy (kept the boys fascinated by the fire) but the large windows & doors connect you to the ever changing view of the river. House has everything you need and is very comfortable. Will definitely look to book again, maybe in summer to enjoy the local beaches and, after lock down, explore the local restaurants.
