Flinders Island Retreat at Cooma House is a hosted guesthouse experience - great for groups of family or friends. There are five double rooms, one of which is all access and all meals available. Each room has an en-suite, separate toilet, smart TV, heating, cooling with quality bedding on either king or queen beds and small break-out spaces tucked around the house. Think Auberge or Trattoria.
Meals are provided using island produce - paddock to plate and fresh produce from the kitchen garden. Slow down, stroll through the labyrinth, watch the clouds, or counts your steps to the beach.
The property of over four hectares is on the doorstep of the National Park; the beach is a stroll down the drive.
There are original artworks, a library of contemporary fiction - with Nespresso and leaf teas set out. Enjoy the views through tall trees to the sea.
Wendy offers cooking schools and other packages - intimate weddings too. It's six degrees warmer in winter than Melbourne staying at Flinders Island's first settlement.
"This place is unique - so much more friendly and homely than staying in traditional hotels/motels. We feel part of the family ... (it has) ambience and atmosphere."
