A quiet, relaxing retreat on the banks of tranquil waters, 4 kms from Wentworth, home of the Murray-Darling junction, and a 20 minutes drive to Mildura.
“Look No Further.........This is a gentle shout out to say what an absolutely divine property this is, on the stunning ''banks of tranquil waters'' in Curlwaa, more particularly 'Nonna's Retreat' <3 As a Super Host, Mary is Super, Super and then Some! I've absolutely loved my alone time, in self-isolation, as we all should be experiencing through these uncertain times of Covid 19. My time here is made even more special by the calming waters that I have had the opportunity and had taken the opportunity, to just sit with myself and deeply reflect without the distraction of city traffic. When I'm not reflecting, I'm working, probably more now than I have ever done from my own home because this retreat provides a stillness without competing distraction. Personal touches ensured I felt welcome, from adding my name as per Welcome on the chalk board, for checking in albeit at a distance to see that I'm ok or needing anything from in town (Mildura) and for the stunningly delicious soup left for me on the verandah table and for most importantly, shared conversations and knowing when I need my very alone time; both Mary and her equally delightful/humurous/straight-talking husband Peter have something very special here because they are both very special! I am also thankful that my initial few booked days here, had enabled me to stay a little longer - I feel blessed that I have a private consultancy business that enables me to work from home, as well an employment contract that has had no choice because of Covid19, to also work from home or anywhere that has internet. I'm blessed that I found 'Nonna's Retreat' with my own internet set-up that works here and provides me this :) I look forward to staying here again in the future and will encourage family and friends to do the same - I also, if you are reading this, encourage you not to hesitate to book and stay, it's worth it and then some! Warmth Caroline”

“Our stay at Terris and Alans place was fantastic! The apartment is a jewel. Terri arranged it with a lot of love and details that made our stay extraordinary. We were in the middle of nature and Terri provided us with veggies from her garden and eggs from her chicken. Every morning and every evening we were able to use the houseboat to sit, relax ant take a swim in the river. Simply fantastic! We would recommend this apartment to everybody.
