Rod and Deb
A hidden gem right in the middle of Hervey Bay. We are proud to invite guests to this calming and peaceful environment. Its a great place for a relaxing weekend with family and friends or a romantic getaway for couples. With an abundance of birds and wildlife, its the perfect place for nature lovers too. Every Villa has a lakeside view.
Rod and Deb would love to welcome you to the retreat and encourage you to put your feet up and relax while you are in this tranquil location. They are here to help you with all your tour bookings and information about the local areas and nearby islands.
We are a stone's throw away from the beautiful heritage listed Fraser Island, Lady Elliot Island and a number of other locations that will take your breath away. Swim with the turtles, watch in awe as the whales put on a spectacle for you and paddle with the dolphins. We are a short walk to the beach and pier and close to shopping centres, bus stops, botanical gardens and restaurants
