Tess, my partner, and I have this wonderful home as our retreat from our work and other home in the city. We escape here with our two dogs, Kelpie (Scarlett) and Kelpie X (Hindi) when things get too hot or too busy in our working lives. The house is perfect for us since it gives us easy access to bushwalking in national parks and to the beach. One of our dogs loves to swim in the creek, 2 minutes from the house through bush, and at the beach and the other dog loves the space so keeps us all happy. In the summer it is great to be able to go to the coast and mix with holiday makers, do the tourist scene but then escape to the quiet of the country. There are also weekly groups in the village for meditation and yoga, things we both enjoy.
We also love the friendliness of Wyndham and the people here. We aim to return and live here in a few years but will continue to rent out spaces for travellers who would like to visit the Yellow Retreat.
