Rustic spa cottages for couples on Mitchells Island.

You'll enjoy rustic luxury by the sea, very private and secluded, in these spa cottages.

Escape the pressures of everyday living and enjoy the seclusion and privacy of one of our rustic country cottages. Relax in your private spa pool, pamper yourself with a massage in the comfort of your cottage, play a game of tennis, take a walk along 10km of white sandy beach or just sit on the dunes and read a book.

Catering primarily to adult couples wanting to relax and unwind in privacy, there are three cottages to choose from: Bluegum, Banksia and Paperbark. All are constructed from western red cedar with red iron roofs to create the atmosphere of a country cabin. Each has a large timber deck with large spa pool and gas barbecue. With about 100 metres between cottages the bushland setting provides almost total privacy in which to relax.

Melaleuca Retreat is situated on Mitchells Island where the north arm of the Manning River enters the sea just east of Taree.

The ultimate in relaxation, clean comfortable private surrounds, the sound of the ocean and birds, relaxing in your own private hot tub, being able to have your dogs with you. A welcome basket of goodies. the Highest recommendation. We will definitely return.

I have to add to the wonderful reviews as there's not many, it seems. This is the only place to stay, if you were at the mid North Coast. Privacy, Tranquility, peace. The lulling and comforting ocean crashing sound at your backyard, kangaroos near the wetlands, and best of all, if you loved to bring your four legged furry friend with you, they accommodate dogs as well!

I have stayed here a few times now. If you want to get away and just relax, Melaleuca Retreat is definitely the best place for it. The cottage was superb and I really appreciated the hospitality from the owners.
