About Us

We are a brother and sister team who share a passion for travel and staying in alternative, quirky yet quality accommodation and love beautiful Jervis Bay.

The Concept

As we have both experienced many different types of accommodation through personal and work-related travel over the years, we have combined as many positive experiences as possible and used them to create a home away from home.

Retro Sands was purchased by the previous owners in 1968, and was used as their personal holiday home until we purchased it in November, 2013. We wanted to respect and honour the history of the house, so we have done our best to retain as much of the originality as possible.

As the architectural style is very “retro” and we were fortunate to obtain many pieces of the former owner’s 60/70’s furniture, it was only natural to follow and retain this theme.  We have added original retro pieces and thrown in some modern items, sourced locally and internationally. 

We have paid the upmost attention to take you on a trip down memory lane, providing board games, books, music and movies from the late 60’s and 70’s, whilst at the same time providing some modern day comforts like flat screen TVs and a blu ray DVD player.

The House

The two story house features two fully equipped kitchens, two bathrooms, and three bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 8 people. It is perfect for both couples and families.

You will find the downstairs is more casual, with the kitchen catering for outdoor and BBQ dining.  Upstairs is more formal, with a balcony and large windows providing spectacular views of Jervis Bay.

The house is located in a quiet part of Vincentia, with Barfleur Beach on its doorstep.

Welcome Basket
