Sound View Retreat is a lovely secluded beachside location where you can relax with family and friends.
The views from the open living area extend over Lake Vancouver to the townsite of Albany, across Princess Royal Harbour continuing around to King George Sound and the Southern Ocean. Emu Point at the entrance to Oyster Harbour channels the view towards the Stirling Ranges which can be seen on a clear day.
The Sound is a popular retreat for the great Humpback whales and Southern Rights as they make their annual migration along the coast. At the right time of the year you don't even have to leave the comfort of the lounge to see them relaxing and playing in the Sound.
Whether it's a summer holiday enjoying the pristine beaches and nature trails in the area or a cosy winter break watching the waves crash onto Breaksea Island as you sit by the wood fire, Sound View Retreat is the place to be.
