Stay the night in one of the 25 cottages, that evoke the ambience of summers past. With a palette of washed back blues, bleached linens, driftwood walls and wide striped awnings, the cottages are a delightful find. Attention to detail is superb, right down to the wicker hampers, seagrass matting and rattan lounges. The cottages, suites and villas boast designer Ralph Lauren furnishings, luxury bathrooms and state of the art technology. The in-room mini bar menu offers a range of fine beverages and simple snacks. A full hot breakfast is included in the overnight rate which is inspired by the seasons & by the produce in our garden. Eggs come from the retreats own hens and the honey from their own bee hives (when in season). On offer is a range of seasonal hot dishes and a full continental selection including prosciutto di parma, a selection of cheese, freshly baked house-made pastries + breads, a variety of yogurts and fruit compotes, bircher muesli, house made granola, jams and preserves, seasonal fruit and organic juices.

The menu is grounded in the core values of authenticity, simplicity and freshness, featuring seasonal dishes inspired by the produce grown and harvested in the estate's famous vegetable garden. In addition to this estate-grown produce, the menu showcases as many local producers, suppliers, winemakers and growers as possible. Locally harvested seafood includes freshly shucked oysters from Merimbula or Cape Hawke and crayfish caught off nearby Macmasters Beach. Our wagyu rump comes from north east Victoria and we source Cape Grim sirloin and Flinders Island lamb. Local likeminded farmers are also supported supplying staples such as organic beans and snow peas. Our olive oil and flours are imported from Italy to ensure quality and authenticity are upheld.
