“This place is beautiful and in a great location. Walk straight across the road for access to the beach and a great cafe. Every night views of the sunset while cooking /eating dinner. Russell and Crystal were great hosts and we felt safe and comfortable during our stay, especially traveling with two toddlers. Would recommend for a couple or family with young children.”

“The retro shack is a perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle and unwind. Comfortable, quiet and in a terrific location it really is like stepping back in time but with all of the modern comforts. Booking and check in was super easy and John was really quick to respond and to confirm details as we’d booked fairly last minute but this wasn’t a problem. The house was perfectly equipped with all we needed in terms of amenities and was great value for the area. Right across from Aldinga beach and a perfect spot to base yourself when touring wineries of McLaren Vale and visiting the stunning SA coast line. Would highly recommend and definitely stay again!”

“Red's Retreat is the perfect spot to spend a few days and explore beautiful Aldinga and surrounding areas. The retreat is very clean and well appointed. Angela is welcoming and her little touches are seen throughout the room in tasteful decorations and features. The bed is comfortable with ample pillows and bedding, fresh fluffy towels and soap and shampoo are provided in the bathroom. The kitchen is well stocked with all of the basic necessities as well as a lovely 1st morning breakfast and tea, coffee and milk. Ample appliances, crockery, cutlery and glassware and pots and pans allow for easy meal preparation and cooking. There is a little area to sit outside and enjoy the location in the scrub, complete with birdlife and the heady smell of eucalyptus and natives. We could also spend time inside with a large flatscreen TV or peruse the books and magazines thoughtfully provided. Having wifi was also helpful to stay in touch with family. Angela recommended some excellent places to eat out also and The Victory Hotel is definitely worth a visit. However, the absolute highlight was that the resident dog Ellie visited us daily to say hello. She also had 7 adorable puppies, just 6 weeks old, who were more than happy to provide cuddles on request! Thank you so much Angela and family for sharing Red's retreat with us. Warm regards Janine & Roy”
