The villas are beautiful. Beds are luxurious and there is lots of space. My husband and I really needed a peaceful break. We have spent 4 days here and will leave completely restored tomorrow. We had massages at the day spa which were really good. We used the Gold Class Cinema which was fun but the movie selection is quite... More

Hi there, thank you for your review. We have at least a couple of hundred DVDs on the shelf plus latest releases (Dallas Buyers Club, Tracks etc). The newest ones are very popular and get borrowed quickly which is perhaps why you mentioned that the selection is limited. As for internet, the mountain (and many rural areas of Australia) is...

If you are looking for a nice relaxing, romantic, rejuvenating place to stay, then look no further than this place! After returning to Escarpment for the 4th time in about as many years, I was pleased to see nothing has changed.

An amazing pamper-filled weekend in a luxurious, well appointed villa with a view to die for! The villa had an awesome double spa bath, a great comfortable four-poster draped bed & of course the romantic fireplace. We needed nothing more! The hot cooked breakfasts were delicious, the staff were friendly, helpful & efficient. Definitely a recommended getaway destination!

wo what a truly memorable relaxing stay. Rooms are beautiful. Winter time recommended as there is the log fire & spa in the room. Beautiful location with alot of privacy with your own villa, quite relaxing place with lots to explore in Mt Tambourine.

Do yourself a favour, go here. This great secluded three bedroom lowset house sits on the edge on Mt Tamborine. If is privacy your after this is for you, the property sits at the end of a short drive past the villas, well away from everyone else.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Breakfast is between 8:30am-9:30am. This usually suits early and late risers. For health and safety reasons, we have an obligation to keep our foods fresh and so cannot keep our buffet (which consists of highly perishable foods such as dairy) open more than an hour.
