Avalon City Retreat is a luxury, modular designed ‘Omnipod’ that is cantilevered off each end of an 1967 architecturally designed office tower – a spectacular sight. Her unique minimalist form houses personally curated, elegant and eclectic interiors. There are two bedrooms with king size custom made beds with deluxe linen, cashmere throws and pillow menus.
The fully equipped kitchen includes Scholtes cooking appliances is a delight to occupy. It offers everything you need to cook up a storm, including Royal Doulton Steelite crockery settings, cutlery, champagne glasses, wine, whiskey glasses for twelve, plus more utensils, pans and platters than you will ever use! Complimentary provisions include an organic tea selection, coffees, sugar, milk, bread, flour, biscuits, rice, potatoes, onions, herbs, salt, pepper, oil, balsamic vinegar and all the practical things you might need need like glad wrap, foil, & baking paper.
Of course, if you’re more in the mood for some special room service Rocky from the Astor Grill will deliver your dinner right to the hotel rooftop. There is a 3.3 m artisan Huon Pine dining table in the living area with generous room for ten. Outside on the evening deck you can cook a barbeque and eat al fresco, rest on the illuminated moon lounge or enjoy some wet stargazing from the outdoor craftsman built Huon pine bath. There are stars in the sky, boats on the water and artwork from all over the place – Italy, Tasmania and Italy and yes, Italy.
There is a comfy feet up leather Arthur G couch and a modest TV – it isn’t big because we are not bogans nor do we have enough money to buy the B & O extravaganza. Avalon City Retreat is built for sharing, quiet noise, celebrations, contemplating, dreaming, cuddling and fun. This soothing sanctuary is an oasis, a memorable escape from ‘the circus’.

Can't express enough the positive experience of my stay here, was an absolute pleasure. Only complaint is I wasn't there long enough. The overall experience is fantastic and will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone. The people of Avalon retreat were terrific as well and provided great hospitality. Do it!
We had a wonderful time enjoying the view particularly in the evening, sitting in front of the fire which warmed the whole living area. The facilities were excellent, particularly the kitchen and the larder was so well stocked. We really liked the art work.
Just returned from a fabulous two night stay at Avalon and cannot recommend it highly enough. From the moment we arrived we knew that this was going to be a special experience and it did not disappoint. Our interstate guests took advantage of its proximity to the world renowned Freycinet National Park and wine tasting at local vineyards while we delighted in staying put soaking in the views and strolling along the private beach, coming together to cook up a storm in the well appointed kitchen and lounge round the open fire in the evening. It was a magical location for seeing the full moon rise over the Freycinet Peninsula and waking next morning to the glorious sunrise. It is impossible to leave without a lingering sense of serenity!
