We rented the mr1 and mr3 for my grandmas 90th and it was so amazing that none of us wanted to leave the houses. Everything you could need was there and more. The only thing i would suggest is getting better mattresses as my mother and aunty slept on thed couches thd second night and said it was more comfy! Still the best place ive ever rented !!

Hands down the best accommodation I've ever stayed in!

The size and quality of this property has to be seen to be believed.

Loved the outdoor enclosed area - perfect for a winters getaway.

Made for a truly memorable 30th birthday celebration with friends and family.

Look forward to coming back in the future.

We used two of the Holiday Retreat homes for an extended family gathering over three nights/four days. We were extremely happy with the facilities at both homes although we tended to spend most of our daytime hours at The Grand. Many hours were spent in the games room playing table tennis and pool. The fishing enthusiasts in the family spent time trying to catch the biggest fish and we have fun photos of their catch and release. Others enjoyed a paddle on the pond and the warm spa was used extensively. Kitchen and BBQ facilities were exceptional with two fridges and two dishwashers in The Grand where we did most of our cooking and eating.

This house is awesome

  • 5 of 5

Mackaloucoo Retreat is a great house for big groups. We had 5 families and there was plenty of room for everyone. Mancave, swimspa & dam with actual fish in it! My only thing to change would be upgrade all double beds to queen size beds.
