A foodies paradise!
Pretty Beach House is a luxurious and beautiful property which the website photos do not come close to depicting its beauty. It is certainly comparable to or better than Qualia, Wolgan Valley, Longitude 131, Capella or the former Southern Ocean Lodge, by way of example. There are simply too many good features to name but the revelation was the food. Beautiful produce driven dishes within an overall meal that would clearly garner many hats if open to the public as a restaurant. In-house chef Duncan obsesses about the detail in a very good way. Very reminiscent of Sean’s Panorama. This is a paradise which should be on the list of every serious foodie.
Words cannot express
This is the ultimate destination for you to wind down and be pampered. The level of service was above and beyond, the food was divine, the rooms spacious and private and the bed just makes you want to stay even longer. The evenings are sophisticated and the food and wine a delight. We were fortunate to have met several other couples that created a wonderful evening. Days can be spent wandering the Bouddi National Park or relaxing by your pool. We also went on a Broken Bay Oyster Tour that was informative and made us appreciate the pearl a great deal more. Geoff, Missy, Emma, Dean and everyone else I have forgotten their name but certainly not their expertise in service, were outstanding and could not have been more helpful. They are always there to assist but at the same time they are rarely seen. You feel like you are in your own little hideaway but then you walk to dinner and mingle with the beautiful art and architecture. Cannot recommend enough
Not good enough
We had a 2 night stay at Pretty Beach House as part of our Babymoon. It is very expensive and there is much better value to be had elsewhere if that is a consideration. One thing I didn't realise until we were there was the close association between Bells Killcare and Pretty beach House. They describe it as a sister property. Most of the staff come from Bells and most of the equipment like a bicycle or kayak (available for extra hire charge) comes from Bells as well. I asked for a bike and was advised that they were all at Bells but the staff did find one rusty old bike with flat tyres that they made serviceable. Apparently most of the guests like to eat ad drink and float in the pool. Our room was clean and well presented but we could not open any of the sliding glass doors for a breeze as 4 out of 4 flyscreens were broken. We were advised repairs were not able to be done until after our departure so we just left the airconditioning on 24/7. The food/dining was outstanding and cannot be faulted. Service was casually attentive and good. In summary, the property is very good but not good value. Go if you like privacy and excellent food and wine and don't care about the cost

We stayed in Treetops which was part of the main building. Beautiful view with a firepit on a huge terrace. Wonderful ambience. Walk down the stairs and you were in the Restaurant and Bar area. Fabulous food all day especially when Dean Jones was cooking. Nice wines including Pol Roger Champagne. We hiked through the National Park each day after a delicious breakfast so we could enjoy lunch. It was a perfect short break worth every dollar.
