About South Coast Retreat
South Coast Retreat provides Waterfront Accommodation on the tip of Greenwell as well as tours of the South Coast. Kayak hire is available for guests staying at South Coast Retreat and of course you are very welcome to bring your own kayak or boat.
We purchased the “Angler’s Rest Riverside Caravan Park” in 2009 as a solution to escape the city. Since then we have been improving the quality of accommodation whilst keeping the place unspoilt and beautiful. We now offer beautiful, self-contained, pet friendly accommodation in Luxury Safari Tents, Bell Tents, Cabins or a huge Holiday House. We changed the name to South Coast Retreat because the property is now a peaceful retreat located on the South Coast of NSW.
We are a member of Eco-Tourism Australia and follow practices that minimise both our and our guests’ environmental impact in line with “RRR” (Reduce, Re-Use, Re-Cycle). In practice what we do is work towards having positive impacts on the environment and on the community because it feels like the right thing to do.
Each year we improve our eco-tourism and community initiatives. We do little things like provide espresso coffee for guests by donation to Noah’s Shoalhaven. We do bigger things like donating to charities and going through our bins before pickup and re-sorting misplaced garbage and recyclable items. We are continually improving energy self-sufficiency through the use of efficient appliances and the installation of solar panels. Recently we introduced refillable, carbon neutral bottles for the provision of high quality, eco-friendly amenities.
Each year we improve our accommodation offerings and add some new services as well. In 2016 we completed the installation of our glamping tents and renovations so that we now only provide quality accommodation. We offer free bikes and kayaks and DVDs for guests. As well you can grab a few free, free range eggs from our happy hens at home, and we’ll soon have some lemons, limes and vege’s for you.
We hope that our efforts will help everyone have a great time here and foster a greater appreciation of our natural habitats and our impact on each other, the community and the environment.
We now call the South Coast home and truly love being able to offer fabulous holiday accommodation, tours, activities and advice to help you have a great South Coast holiday.
