Situated in a quiet lush surrounds and close to Shopping and restaurants. Great to come back to cool clean accommodation and a beautiful pool to quench the tropical heat.
Hosts Brian and Jan would do anything to ensure your needs or queries are met with satisfaction. They are very warm and friendly and down to earth, so have a chat about anything, no problem. All amenities and rooms are updated, so very nice and comfortable. Thanks for everything Jan and Greene [Brian]. Oh and appreciate the free wifi too.

the pictures do not show a true version of this resort.
it is a house in the suburbs of Palmerston.
Upon collecting the keys - i was asked where have you been! Well i collected our unwell 80 year old a wheel chair after collecting her from the air port and it took a little longer than expected.
After one night it was extremely difficult getting her up snd down the stairs. We asked if we could have a refund. This was flattly refused. We even asked for half the money back which also was flattly refused with the comment we've had people stay here who have had hip and knee replacements and they could get up the stairs! so on the second night instead of bringing granny out that we would meet there and have some dinner. This was also refused. No visitors allowed.
The booking stated a tropical breakfast. Sounds lovely - it is a small box of cereal a mandarine and a banana. We stayed a week breakfast only for 3 days. No fresh towels, no room service at all! Upon check out I was asked if i had cleaned the room and washed the towels. I was then told that I would have to pay a cleaning fee. I asked how much would this be and was told it depends on how long it takes to clean the room and that she would just charge it to our credit card.
There are no cleaning products provided.

Would not recommend. The rooms would be bearly a 3 star @ 1100.00 for the week i would look elsewhere.

Amazing hosts, thank you to Jan and Brian (Greenie) for making our family feel welcomed and comfortable for the week. Thanks Jan for the offer of the dress for my wife for the wedding, she did so really want to wear it and quite surprised it didn't end up in the suitcase, HA HA. Jan was always on hand to respond to any requests or questions we had about the property or stay in general. Spacious family accommodation with washing and cooking facilities. Continental breakfast supplied as advertised (forgot about the Mango left in the freezer Jan but i am sure it would have tasted great). Great location being only 20 minutes to Mindil beach, 30 minutes to Berri Springs and 30 minutes down the Arnhem Highway to the Croc jumping cruise. It was so relaxing to come back after a long day and just chill out by the pool and unwind. By far the best holiday accommodation the family has stayed in to date. Definitely recommend for a family stay.

It was an absolute pleasure staying with Jan and Brian. My stay was so relaxing, and they made it their priority to accommodate my needs in every way possible, including dietary requirements.
I truly felt as if I was part of the family, and will definitely be recommending Sunset Retreat to everyone.
If you are looking for a relaxed, quiet, tranquil place to stay while in Palmerston, this is the place for you!
Thanks again guys xx
