    Retreat Family Beach Shelter v3 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I sincerely regret buying this beach shelter I love Kathmandu gear, very good quality and comfortable. I do however regret buying this beach shelter online. I just unpacked it and did a test run setting it up. The stitching in one corner tore slightly as I was putting the poles in and it took 15 minutes to set-up, that was without the pegs in!!! I would expect to spend this amount of time putting up a tent but not a beach shelter. I have since purchased a different brand beach shelter which goes up less than 1 minute and was cheaper and almost as spacious - the material also feels stronger. The Kathmandu design seems outdated given what else is on the market and if I hadn't already set it up and was allowed to return it I would....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, roomy, but need to practise set up Bigger than I thought but really good for our family of 4. Can fit everything you need for a beach picnic. Set up is easy with one person (10 mins) but I did practise a couple of times in our backyard first. Packing up on a windy day is definitely better with two people though. You'd need to be organised to have everything else ready to go and maybe use your fold out chairs or chilli bin to weigh things down because if the windy catches it, it can be harder to fold. Looking around the busy beach yesterday, I was thankful that we probably had this as one of the best options to use as a shelter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We love our ours we take it to the beach, waterpark etc Its so easy to put up and pack away! Only has 3 poles to put in and with a bit of practice takes 2mins to put together which is perfect when you have two lil ones itching to get into the water!! Would defiantly recommend this beach shelter .. The flooring does get very hot if its in the sun - easy fix place a couple of large towels on it.. Love that you can zip the flooring up helps if you need privacy to change and if you just want a bit of extra security and peace of mind while out in the water

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best beach accessory ever. We saw one of these recently at the beach. So impressed with how good it looked we took a closer look and got the name and brand which we googled as soon as we got home. Purchased online and received a couple of days later. Awesome beach shade and we tested it at the beach that weekend. Worked a treat, makes going to the beach so much better having your own shade and it doesn't matter how windy it gets its very stable with the sand pockets all around. Plenty of room for all the family.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! We bought this tent a while ago and have used it a few times already. It is easy to put up and great for on the beach. You have pockets on the side to put sand in to stop it blowing away in the wind. And with the UV filtering material is safe for sitting in and relaxing under the hot NZ sun. Would highly recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality but too difficult to set You'll definitely need someone help with this shelter. Especially on a windy day. Buy this if you have a family of four or more

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we wanted I bought this on line a couple of weeks ago, and we put it up for the first time this weekend as we had our grandchildren to stay. It's a perfect size to house a blow up paddling pool and keep the little ones out of the sun. I particularly like the pockets around the outside of the shelter, so when at the beach we can weigh down the shelter with sand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect family beach shelter! Bought on line after reading good reviews so decided to add another one. Small enough to carry around in its carry case but the real appealing thing to me was once erected it was the perfect size for my family of 4, with plenty of room left over for esky, beach bag etc. Along with this it was easy to put up and take down and very sturdy. Very happy customer
