Rest. Relax. Restore. Rejuvenate. Retreat.

Summer House Retreat is a beautiful, boutique retreat venue that offers retreat hosts and facilitators a luxury space for their guests to experience a unique and bespoke retreat offering.

Set on half an acre of soulful gardens at Jan Juc on Victoria’s iconic Surf Coast, gateway to the Great Ocean Road, Summer House Retreat is an extensively and stunningly renovated 100 year old original homestead intentionally designed for intimate, luxury personal and professional wellness and business retreats.

Located only a hour from the heart of Melbourne and 30 minutes from Avalon Airport, Summer House Retreat has 4 bedrooms and caters for 8 guests. It features ocean views, a high end Hamptons-style kitchen, beautiful onsite yoga studio, fire pit, mineral pool and extensive living and dining spaces.

Retreat hosts are supported by our extensive expertise and experience in hosting and facilitating retreats. Hosts have access to our Collective of the Surf Coast’s leading caterers, chefs, as well as practitioners across health, fitness and wellness as well as our Retreat Planning Guide, a seamless, soulful and stress-free system to bring your vision to light. As a luxury retreat venue, Summer House Retreats is unparalleled.


Summer House Retreat is for hosts and facilitators looking to create something special for their guests. With overnight accommodation for up to eight guests, retreat hosts can create truly transformational experiences that are intimate and tailored to their philosophy and their guests’ requirements. Our large living area looks across to the ocean, and our bedrooms and bathrooms feature environmentally-friendly pampering products and luxury linen. Spend a sunny afternoon in our decked pool, while your guests eat, drink, and enjoy the extensive BBQ area and retreat gardens. Or, just take a seat in a well-considered spot on the wrap-around verandah to enjoy the exquisite ocean views and rest, relax, restore, rejuvenate and retreat.


Summer House Retreat specialises in intimate retreats, not massive, corporate-style events. Retreats are as individual as our incredible hosts and facilitators. The boutique, luxury nature of our space combined with our years of experience allows our facilitators to be as creative as they wish and they can tailor agendas against the goals and desired outcomes of their clients. We have an array of amazing hosts and facilitators delivering a diverse range of retreats including yoga, meditation and mindfulness, wellbeing, fitness, surfing, business planning and professional and personal development.
