Each Thursday when I get the Guardian newspaper I love to read the ‘Nature Watch’ column by Ray Collier. Our stay at the eco retreat was like an extended ‘reading’ of the ‘Nature Watch’ stories.

Superbly equipped and managed accommodation in wonderful surroundings. Everything about the place is a great balance of eco and luxury, a great combination. Considering we are only 200k from Melbourne it seems like another world away. Many thanks, we will be back!

Steve & Carole, Nick & Rebecca

If you could train the wombats to perform during daylight hours then this place would be perfect Mae! No detail was missed; the cabin immaculate; every item we reached or looked for was here. A truly thoughtful host who shows passion for the people and the place. Just delightful!

Mardi & Matthew

The most relaxing place. Have had a calm and peaceful couple of days – perfect for post pregnancy/birth/first six months. Loved the bath so much we’ll be looking for one for our own house. Thank you so much for your hospitality, herbs, breakfast goodies, tea and the freshly grown courgettes which were put to good use. If we didn’t live on the other side of the planet we would be back. Thank you!

What a beautiful and relaxing place. Thanks so much for having us. Out of all the places surrounding Venus Bay, we were glad we chose here. Cheers.

Thank you so much Mae! Not only did we fall in love with the place – the fauna, flora, cabin. We found you extremely informative, knowledgeable, helpful and generous to a fault with our children. They loved the bullets!!! We would love to come back some time but without the children – the bath is calling me!! Great bath!

Thank you for making our family free Xmas so peaceful. We loved the cabin, the beautiful location and noises of nature. P.S. the light show that you put on was amazing…to help us kick in 2012!

What a beautiful place – so perfect for a pre-Xmas break in nature. Thanks for the garden goodies and all the care you’ve taken. Oh…..and a perfect place to Pop the Question! We’ll be back for sure for more kangaroo spotting on our doorstep – and the bathroom window.

Awesome. Dear Mae son, we really appreciate all of your hard work on conserving this place. We had a great time and thank you for your ecological hospitality. The local native animals must remain in peace and I’m sure you will try to keep them happy. Many thanks.

Liz and I REALLY enjoyed our stay at the Eco Retreat and will hopefully come back sometime next year. Meantime, we are trying to come back down to earth ... to reality. When we would both much prefer your reality! All the best and once again, thank you.

Peter and Liz

Thank you, we had a really lovely and relaxing time – it’s so peaceful here you really are lucky (well hard work and dedication plays a big part too!) to live in such an untouched corner of Victoria. Will see you again soon, warmest regards.

Thank you Mae, we had a fantastic time here with nature, silence is a bliss. Thank you for all the lovely jams and muesli ‘very nice’ and for creating such a special place with mother nature. Until next time enjoy.

Andrew and Sofia

The bush offers plenty of adventure here at Venus Bay. We found ourselves gazing upon amazing wildlife, beautiful wetlands, squeaky white sand beaches and native Australian bush. This is a wildlife haven in an otherwise so busy coast. We met our first wombat, saw kangaroos in the wild and really enjoyed the mischief of the birds, and the great food.
