My partner and I stayed in the Harem for 2 nights to celebrate my Birthday, everything was luxurious from the decor and candlelit spa to the wood fire and the 4 poster bed! The little touches such as the birthday balloon left and chocolates were such a nice suprise and the candles in the cottage just set of the romantic... More

Bernie and Taneka couldnt be more welcoming, the cottages are both beautiful (I had a peek at the Blue Bells one!!!). It was relaxing and far from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Gardens are private and tranquil and The Harem Cottage was just so lovely with plenty of room and all conveniences required to make ones stay... More

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay in the Harem room for 2 nights in November 2013. Everything was lovely, from the decor to the food, the fire and the spa. Private and quiet, set in a lovely township. Easy walk to shops. Lovely bush walk very close by. Service very friendly and helpful. Thanks for helping make our... More

The attention to detail blew us away! Such a lovely place to relax and enjoy nature! We stayed in The Harem room two nights but could have stayed much longer! We took a little drive around the area and enjoyed the serenity and beautiful green hills but preferred to stay in the cottage drinking wine and hanging in the spa.... More

Thanks for the fantastic review Stacey and I agree with you, my preference out of both cottages is Bluebells as well. It's great sitting in the warm spa amongst nature and gazing at the sky. You've both been great guests and we hope to welcome you again in the future. Tineke and Bernie More

Perfect spot to celebrate your anniversary! The weather was not the best that weekend, but we had nonetheless an amazing time relaxing at the indoor spa and sitting by the fire!

Thank you for the lovely comments. I didn't think your promise of a return would be so quick.... You're back 1 day later in Bluebell cottage again which is great. Hopefully next time The Harem will be free for you to try. Good to see you again so soon!! Tineke and Bernie More

To find two quaint cottages in the main street of Gembrook is great but the experience only gets better! We stayed in 'Blue Bells' and were immediately impressed by this spacious and creatively decorated cottage - spotlessly clean with lovely filtered light streaming in from the natural garden that surrounds this private, groomed property. The owners are more than helpful... More

Thanks Jason, It was a pleasure having you stay. I definitely agree that the Bluebells jacuzzi is the best. There is nothing like enjoying the night sky while soaking in the warm jacuzzi, whether it is winter or summer. May be we will see you again. Tineke and Bernie. More
