“At short notice we hired Angels in the Kitchen to provide something special for a group of our son’s friends celebrating his 18th birthday at Beach Retreats, Watergate Bay. They didn’t disappoint. The two girls came and delivered the tastiest meal we could’ve hoped for, a Thai banquet and we ate the lot. The Angels were engaging, fun, knowledgeable about the design and delivery of the service and added to the atmosphere. They left after the meal and you’d never know they’d been. Off the back of the in-house catered service we ordered a number of frozen meals and desserts – they have been really fantastic! In fact much better, in terms of flavour and consistency, than similar from ‘Cook’. We would definitely recommend and would buy them again – especially the crumble!”

Some of the beautiful places we work with.....

Beach Retreats

There’s more to Beach Retreats than fantastic self-catering properties in amazing locations… We know what it’s like to turn up at your property after a long journey, which is why you can pre-order groceries and delicious food to be packed in the fridge, ready for your arrival. We also know what it’s like for a family or a bunch of friends arriving back home after a day at the beach. That’s why lots of our properties have special ‘surf showers’ and lockable storage for boards and wetsuits.
