We are so glad you had a wonderful time at Toogoom Retreat! And it’s great that you were able to make use on the little natural boat ramp in the backyard to launch your tinnie. Hopefully you were able to catch a few muddies and some barramundi. You are welcome to come back and relax again in the future!
We are glad you loved the property Jessica. We are sorry that you felt unwelcome by the neighbour. We love our neighbours & have always found them to be very accommodating of the guests staying in Toogoom Retreat.
We are so glad you had a peaceful & enjoyable stay! And yes, the Burrum Heads Accommodation Centre manage Toogoom Retreat for us so professionally & capably. We cherish them! And we would love to welcome you back for another blissful stay.
We really value hearing about our guests experience & appreciate you taking the time to write this review Tracy. Toogoom Retreat has certainly received some much needed love lately & we are thrilled you noticed the changes. The missing extension lead on the vacuum has been replaced (thank you for letting us know) and we are glad you felt safe with your toddler on the newly enclosed veranda. The jetty is certainly tricky with a toddler (& there is also an unfenced small dam near the house). Although there are top rails around the jetty, we are exploring some options for more toddler-friendly options. Looking forward to welcoming you again next year!
We are thrilled you had a great stay! And yes, we love Klayre at Elders too, she really goes above & beyond to make sure our guests have a smooth & relaxing experience. So glad you were able to enjoy the sunsets on the jetty & paddle boarding in Beelbi Creek. You would be welcome back to Toogoom Retreat any time!
We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review Lynne, and are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Toogoom Retreat! You are always welcome back to soak up some more peace, go paddling & revel in the night skies.
Peaceful ParadiseLynne Webster - 23rd August 2021
Lovely home, very clean and well maintained - peaceful with great birdlife, and the night skies are amazing. You have your own jetty which is great for a canoe or boat or just to catch a fish - Restaurants and little shop only 10 min drive up the road - great getaway.
Toogoom River RetreatLaura Tay - 15th June 2021
Lovely house set off the road, sitting close to the river. House has all the mod cons available for use. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of crockery, pans and most bits and pieces you need for a family get away. 2 bathrooms which was ideal for the family to use. Relaxing deck with superb sunsets in the evening. We paddle boarded on the river however wouldn't swim in the water as was quite sludgy whilst we were there. Good for small tinny, not anything too much bigger unless you know the rocks and channels through the creek. We would stay again. Claire at Elders Real Estate was exceptional; going above and beyond during our stay.

PARADISETracy Dowell - 9th June 2021
We have been coming to the retreat for about 4 years and just love it! we have a boat so its so convenient to be able to launch our boat from the house and leave it there for easy access as we like.House was very clean on arrival. And to see the new owners have done some much needed renovations was appreciated. We have a toddler now, so to see the veranda was safe for her was a relief. Thankyou!!The only thing was the safety of the jetty. Maybe some safety wire between the railings for children.Other than that an extension cord for the vacuum cleaner would be handy,the one it has is a bit short. Thankyou so much for letting us continue to enjoy this piece of paradise! See you next year!!
Beautiful home, neighbor unhappyJessica O'Brien - 20th April 2021
The property and location were amazing. We would have really enjoyed our stay however the closest neighbor was not very polite, yelled at us about our dog, stared constantly and made us feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. This made it a very disappointing experience and we did not feel we were able to relax and enjoy our holiday with our loved ones
Relaxing RetreatRobyn Garrels - 22nd March 2021
We had a wonderful time at Toogoom Retreat. Great stop to put the tinny in and go fishing, very relaxing.

Better then the photosLinda Drury - 10th February 2021
Great location. The house and property has a great layout. We went with friends, so each couple had a bed & bath on opposite sides of the house. Perfect! Would be excellent for a family too.Nice fishing and crabbing spotA few small details either have already, or are being attended to. Can't wait for our next trip!
Simply gorgeousKerry Reichle - 16th December 2020
Love this property, will come back again.
Relaxing and comfortable with gorgeous viewsBridgit Jones - 28th October 2020
Toogoom Retreat was a lovely getaway for us being such a short distance from Hervey Bay. The ramp was perfect for launching our small tinny and the jetty great for sunset drinks. We started our stay with lunch at Goodys Restaurant and dinner at Salty Squid Cafe. Both meals were delicious and the service was excellent. The property does need a little maintenance. The fridge made some strange noises and we had a few problems getting the oven and burners to work. Little things only though, blinds had quite a few broken chords. The bbq had not been cleaned either. This comfy home came complete with linen and towels which was surprising as we were asked to bring both. The bath was superb and entertainment system worked well. I would definitely stay here again, it truly was value for money, we just have to learn how to catch fish! You can drop your crab pot right out the front.
Property with everything, just needs a bit of attentionRobyn Cearney - 5th October 2020
This property has everything you need and it is great there are books, board games etc available. The property does need a really good clean and the lighting is terrible - so it is really hard to play a game, read or do a jigsaw puzzle at night. Also note, that the garage door did not lock, so really anybody could enter the property through the garage door, into the ensuite (which has garage access) and into the home). There was a bit of rubbish laying around the property (like empty softdrink bottles and cans).
Review for “Beaches” @ ToogoomLynne Murdoch - 5th October 2020
We had a great stay. Close to the beach and boat ramp. House well suited to all who stayed including our little dog.
Tranquil Holiday LocationNicole Arthur - 5th October 2020
Location of the property was great for our family of 6. The house was a great size and had room for our close family members to join us. The maintenance of the property needs to be worked on, many of the lights didn't work both upstairs and downstairs. We did unfortunately find dirty dishes put back in the cupboards that we had to clean prior to use. The keys to enter the property need some sorting as we had the whole property rented and the pile of keys we had, took us forever to work out what belonged to which place. We would come back and rent this place as long as some maintenance was done and up to scratch. The price was very reasonable for the size and location of this property as well.
Everything you need, fun stay!Janette Moon - 21st July 2020
We had a great stay at Toogoom Beach Retreat. Fish and crab straight off the jetty.
Little gemTracy Dowell - 9th July 2020
We just love this place. We have been here a few times over the years. However, over time it has deteriated alot due to the lack of maintenance done to it, inside and out, which is a real shame.
