    Quiet and peaceful. Something a little different. Eco Retreat was clean and comfortable. Had all the facilities you would need. Was a little cold given the time of year, but the electric blanket and heater helped.

    Great location and so many beautiful birds. Seed was supplied and we were able to feed the king parrots and cockatoos which came right up to the balcony. Also the inside fire was so toasty.

    Location was, as expected, a short, easy drive from the centre of Lorne. Beautiful surroundings. We were there in winter so very quiet. Nice to have a playground area. Good contact by text from hosts prior to arrival, on suggesting places to eat...
