  • Thank you for our stay at The Rooster Retreat. The accommodation was perfect for our needs over the Easter long weekend. The house was clean, comfortable, cosy and had everything that we needed to be self contained.I was particularly impressed with the beautiful and well cared for gardens. I spent many pleasant hours enjoying the peaceful beauty of your garden with my family. I was also so happy to be offered an airplane joy flight over the Albany area.Having spent 4 days walking parts of the Bibbulmun track, this flight was a highlight !
    The flight gave me another perspective of Albany and the beautiful surrounding landscapes. So thank you for being part of my 50th birthday adventure- I wish you and Marco every happiness.It was my great pleasure to meet you.Thank you again!

  • We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at the Rooster Retreat. Felt at home the minute we walked through the door. Very comfortable and well equipped with a lovely back garden to sit in and relax. The offer of home grown lemons and zucchini and fresh eggs was very welcome and they tasted wonderful. Highly recommended.

  • We were very pleased with the Rooster Retreat, very clean, quiet, private and homely. There is a lovely backyard with a great lawn for our boy to run around on. There is a chook enclosure and bird aviary which are very well maintained. Anna our gracious and friendly host gave us some of the biggest zucchinis we have ever seen, which went straight onto the BBQ. The house is 5 minutes from a beautiful beach, what a pleasure.

  • I am emailing Marco and yourself to say a very big thank you for providing us with the one week stay at The Rooster Retreat. Myself and Quyen are very impressed with the environment, which The Rooster Retreat has to offer. In the near future, I will visit Albany in a regular time interval due to my flight training and for sure will return to the retreat for my stay in Albany. Furthermore, at any chance I will recommend this place to others visiting Albany.

  • Three nights wasn’t long enough to take in the relaxing and cozy environment in and around this perfect southern cottage. The comforts and cleanliness will assure anyone who stays here to return. Hosts nearby insure that everything is in perfect order. Many thanks for a lovely time, Anna and Marco.
