Here is a little note from a recent rural schools visit:
‘Taking our small school group from Western Queensland to The Retreat Beach Houses at Peregian Beach was truly the highlight of their school year! Nora and Dan kept in close contact during the 6 month booking and confirmation process and were a delight to deal with. We got the best deals on the best activities that the Sunshine Coast has to offer. 3 days surfing, gymnastics and ten pin bowling, plus the ever popular and amazing Australia Zoo and Underwater World! For our kids just being there and learning different social and life skills was a terrific experience. We would highly recommend the beautiful accommodation with its close proximity to the beach, to anyone from the bush wanting to experience the Sunny Coast – Thank You Nora and Dan for the pleasure!’ Sigrid Peters – Arcadia Valley State School – Parent and Staff Member
