24th January 2014 , Dear Charmaine & Richard,
We can’t thank you enough for your friendly welcome and all the help you have given, especially giving us a glowing reference to secure our long term rental. Richmond Retreat has it all, it’s cosy, clean, has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and is in the perfect location for touring around Adelaide.
We will recommend your fantastic property!
Many thanks The Harkins family (From the Isle of Bute Scotland)
April 2013 – Thank you for welcoming us to Australia with open arms. We appreciate your generosity, concern and kindness you have shown to us. The house you prepared was great and truly amazing, friendly and comfortable. The first impression of the kids was woah! We found everything shipshape and organised. Though we are new here you helped us feel safe, secure and fine. The kids will miss this…. Thank you 🙂 Dennis Tere Dotee & Ardy
p.s. visit Philippines sometimes 🙂
November 2012 – Richmond Retreat has been the perfect short term rental, we emigrated from the UK and walked straight into a beautiful home with everything supplied, to make our transition as easy as possible. The house has quality modern decor, every mod con available, and a really homely feel, there were even toys for the children along with tea bags, bread etc Charmaine has been amazing, more like a friend than a landlady she really went the extra mile to make our stay comfortable, so much so that we decided to stay an extra week. It really has been a home from home for us whilst we were looking for a long term rental, I highly recommend Richmond Retreat and Charmaine, and we have had a wonderful time it has been the best stop gap accommodation we could have wished for.

September 2012 – A VERY HAPPY SOUTH AFRICAN FAMILY – When my family decided to migrate to Adelaide Au from South Africa, we had no friends or family in our new state of choice. We eventually found Charmaine via the internet, offering short term accommodation, which is exactly what we required. There were lots of other companies we could choose from, but we decided to settle on Richmond Retreat, simply because Charmaine offered that special, homely touch to her deal, which is exactly what we needed, coming to a strange country. Charmaine did not just provide the accommodation we needed; she was a true ambassador to the Australian nation. She met us at the airport, what a relief to see her friendly face as we stepped of the airline. She arranged transport for us to Richmond Retreat. This was really a warm, homely setup. All the information we could possibly require to help us settle in Australia, was professionally provided by Charmaine, even a welcome pack with essentials we required. We immediately felt quiet at home. It does not end there, after our two weeks at Richmond Retreat, we moved into our long term leased house, which Charmaine assisted us in securing. Whenever we needed any advice or information Charmaine was only a phone call away. We would highly recommend the services of Charmaine to any family or couple wishing to settle in Adelaide Australia. We will always be eternally grateful to you Charmaine.
May 2012 – Thank you Charmaine, The Richmond Retreat was an ideal place for us to stay. We were a short distance to the ESTA netball Stadium where we needed to go each day, but also provided an excellent position for access to the city, Glenelg and West Beach. It was an ideal configuration for us as well, so it suited our needs really well. Thanks for excellent turnaround time for the bond refund as well. Regards
March 2012 – Fantastic house to spend our first month in Australia. Everything we could have hoped for and more. So close to the beaches, shops and the city. Tried the seafood Shop “Samtass” at the corner & would highly recommend this. The Oysters Kilpatrick was amazing! We would definitely recommend Richmond Retreat to family & friends who come to Visit as this has everything to accommodate your needs; it’s a home away from home. Thank you Charmaine & Richard for this wonderful experience! 10/10.
