The Space

When you walk into Edenderry Retreat, we hope that you will immediately feel at home! This split-level architectural home is perched on the hillside taking full advantage of the spectacular views and surrounding hills and bushland. With vaulted ceilings and ironbark wooden floors, this home provides a perfect space for retreats and workshops.

The main kitchen is situated on the upper floor – this is the hub which is central to the large, comfortable lounge complete with fireplace for the colder winter months – perfect for great conversations and fellowship.

The dining room which doubles as the conference room is on this level, as are the expansive deck and spa deck. Relax under the stars in the 8-seater hot tub and take the plunge in an ice bath if you dare! The large table out on the deck is a perfect place to sit and contemplate or journal whilst sipping on a herbal tea. It is also a great place for meals and conversation, and when the weather is fine we also do some group work out here. The view from all the decks is just WOW!

On the lower level is another kitchen and lounge area with yet another expansive deck – this self-contained apartment is opened up for all guests during retreats and serves as a “common” room.

The home is conveniently serviced by 2 laundries complete with washers and dryers. The whole house is air-conditioned which is powered by an extensive solar system, so the house is wonderfully cool during the hot and humid months.

There are 3 airconditioned Queen-bed guest rooms to choose from, all have very comfortable mattresses with quality linens and bathrobes.

On a split level between the upper and lower floors are the “Green Room” & “Blue Room” which share a spacious bathroom and separate toilet. These tastefully decorated large rooms with windows looking out to the garden and trees, both have a desk and chair – ideal for journaling and writing in your lifeplan!

The “River Room” is a part of the lower level apartment and comes with a walk-in wardrobe and large ensuite. This timber floored room has magnificent river views and ocean vistas and is an ideal space to think, dream and ideate. The river room comes directly off the shared “common” room, which is open for other retreat guests to use between the hours of 7am to 9pm. The common room is used for guests to make their own breakfast from the fully stocked fridge and pantry, and to help themselves throughout the day to drinks and snacks. The upstairs kitchen is available outside of the common room hours.

The lower ground area is also used as a fully self-contained private apartment and is booked for bespoke and private retreats/consultations, as well as NDIS Respite Retreats.

Maximum capacity is six (three cuddle couples) or three singles or a combination. Retreats will proceed even if only one person has booked. We run small group retreats and workshops so the focus is on providing you with the best experience possible.

Edenderry Retreat is Laura’s home which she shares with her much loved Irish partner Desmond (Des, Mr Des, Dessie). The name Edenderry comes from Desmond’s home town in Ireland, a place that both Des and Laura love to visit often. Laura and Des moved from Casuarina Beach, Northern New South Wales in 2020 and went from a sea-change to a tree-change! They bought this stunning home with the vision of creating the retreat space that is Edenderry Retreat today.

The Food

At Edenderry Retreat you are nourished with delicious home cooked meals, healthy snacks, filtered rainwater and cold-pressed juices. The kitchen is stocked with quality ingredients, grass-fed meats and local fresh produce. We use high quality non-toxic cleaning products and personal care products to enhance your experience.

Laura is quite the chef and cooks many of the meals herself, with many of her “famous” dishes being requested often such as her marinated chicken, beef burgers, chili con carne and lamb shank stew. Laura’s philosophy is “simple food done well”!

 Whilst our food philosophy is based around meat proteins, low carbohydrate and grain-free eating, we happily cater to most dietary requirements including vegetarians and vegans. Our charter is to support and honour your food philosophy and individual choices.
