Retro Sands is a fully contained house located across from Bafleur Beach, Vincentia, in stunning Jervis Bay.
We are a brother and sister team who share a passion for travel and staying in alternative, quirky accommodation, and love beautiful Jervis Bay.
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.
As the architectural style is very 'retro', and we were lucky enough 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, combined with some modern items, sourced locally, and all around the world, as far as New York. We have paid the upmost attention to take you 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 a flat-screen TV and Blu Ray DVD player.
We have set up downstairs to be 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 beautiful Barfluer Beach on its doorstep. The two story house features two fully equipped kitchens, 2 bathrooms, and three bedrooms, comfortably sleeping 8 people. It is perfect for both couples and families.

What a fab house with everything going for it - magical location, funky interior, and all the comforts of home! The attention to detail is second to none - everything is in keeping with the retro theme whilst still retaining all the modern comforts. The house was spotlessly clean and so well equipped. Being Easter we arrived to find a welcoming basket full of chocolate goodness. The bottle of sparkling from Silos Estate winery and some local produce was an extra nice touch. Read more
