Welcome to Lanza Retreat

Whether you want to relax and soak up the views and sea air, or prefer activities of a nautical or outdoor nature, Lanza Retreat offers this and much more.

Lanza Retreat is located at the water's edge and has its own private jetty and two moorings. Established gardens ensure privacy from passers by and guests can take advantage of several prime positions to enjoy the views or a bit of quiet time in the hammock.  

This comfortable holiday home features plenty of large windows so that whichever room you’re in you can always enjoy a stunning backdrop.

The open plan living and dining area features large windows and doors that lead out to expansive wraparound decks.

Inside you’ll find the living area set out with sofas and chairs ready to welcome you after a busy day fishing or exploring the shoreline and native bush.

In the unlikely event that you get bored of the view, there is a flatscreen TV and DVD player provided so you can keep yourself entertained.

The dining table is located near to the window to make the most of the activities on the water.

The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you need to self-cater during your stay.  All you need to bring is your own food and personal toiletries.
