Outstanding Service

My husband and I recently stayed at Pretty Beach for three nights in October. Joseph and Geoffrey greeted us upon arrival and from that moment on we were given personal service and made to feel like we were part of their family living in the "house". The accommodation is outstanding with all the luxuries and more that you would expect in a luxury accommodation. Joseph provided us with more than what we expected and I thank you very much for the change in our accommodation. Geoffrey provided extra service in taking us to a walking destination and then picked us up so that we did not have to walk up the driveway!!! It is a wonderful place to relax, sit back and just find yourself again. We will return. Thank you so much.A special mention to Dale (Chef) for his outstanding meals and accommodating our food preferences.

One hell of a property! Wow! Thanks so much for the opportunity to experience the extraordinary Pretty Beach House. In so many ways, it is right up there with world luxury standard and we’ve got to tell people about it. Please pass on my thanks to Stefano and the whole team… we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The Best of Australia

A perfect reflection of Australia - a fabulous bush setting, exclusive surf beaches, and some of the best food I've had in a long time! With just four rooms it feels like you are staying at a very fortune friends holiday home (well one with personalised service!). We'll be back for sure...

Pure Luxury

Hi Joe, Jose and Geoffrey, We wanted to say thank you for such a memorable experience over the past 3 days. It was the perfect getaway and just what we both needed, even though the intention was for a babymoon I definitely enjoyed it as much (or maybe even a little more) as Catherine. It was pure luxury. From the little touches of arranging the beers and popcorn for the cricket, the thoughtful touches for Catherine to the exquisitely amazing food that Jose prepared, everything was just perfect. To be honest, it was you guys that made our stay perfect. Everything was professional yet familiar, warm, and homely. It was so comfortable that we felt right at home at Pretty Beach House, just a lot more luxurious and with much better food. We also can not forget to thank Brian, Steve, Dean, Bree and Larry for the ever so professional service they provided. Thank you for the little gift bags, again another very thoughtful touch. Please tell Jose that we have already used the Saba with some strawberries last night, amazing. We may see some of you guys at Bells for Christmas lunch if not sooner. We can not wait to come back and visit your amazing property again and I will be sure to bring along a homemade Salami and slab of pancetta for you all.

Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful 3 night stay last week end. We came prepared for terrible weather expecting to be locked away for 3 days but were very lucky and able to get out and about and enjoy the beautiful Bouddi National Park. The team at Pretty Beach House were all outstanding. We couldn't have been looked after better. They were all charming, professional and approachable. The food was wonderful, to the extent we are on "short rations" at home this week! A treat for both of us was meeting Stefano Manfredi. We used to go to his restaurant in Ultimo 30 years ago and have always loved his food and style. The post-fire resurrection is a triumph. The House still has the feel it did - but better. We stayed in Hideaway the last time we were there and loved the renovation that has been done. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to all at Pretty Beach House. Kind regards Elizabeth

High above the inlets and coves of Brisbane waters

High above the inlets and coves of Brisbane waters, just north of Sydney, this Bouddi Peninsula haven only 90 minutes from Sydney... is a place to catch your breath, reconnect with someone special and indulge in some of the best resort food in Australia – under the guiding hand of Stefano Manfredi.

Australian hospitality at its very best!

This place is a magical gem right in the midst of wilderness. Our entire stay was very smooth and the credit goes to Mareta and her amazing staff who genuinely go out of the way to make your stay memorable. The degustation dinner designed by Steve Manfredi was top notch with the chef ensuring after every course that we were enjoying our food. Despite being a vegetarian the chef did pull our quite a fancy preparation and deserves a special thanks from our end. The homemade chocolate croissant at breakfast was really top notch. The stay itself was quite luxurious and i doubt if it gets any better. This place is all about small and intimate experience where you are treated as family members and well taken care off throughout the stay. Upon departure we got a set of goodies for our journey back home which was so very thoughtful. Thank you PBH, you guys were outstanding and hope to come back and pay our visit next when in that part of the world.
