Experience life in a quaint fishing village for an extended stay!

Harbour Retreat is an ideal destination for travellers looking for a longer term stay and an immersive east coast experience. This lovely spot is perfect for a solo traveler who loves to be off the beaten track and meet the locals.

Tackle Box Cottage is a snuggly little gem at 224 sqft but it has everything you need…even for an extended stay. 

Martinique Beach is a short 4 minute drive away, a secret beach is only a 10 minute walk away, and a full day spa is just up the road. The backyard at Harbour Retreat has lots of peaceful spots to sit quietly and listen to the birds by day and at night watch the stars by a bonfire. There are also plenty of hiking trails, beaches and yummy places to eat in the area (including food delivery from a mediterranean restaurant!). 

All amenities are at your fingertips: groceries, restaurants, artisan shops, markets, liquor store, gas, bank, pharmacy.
