I stayed in these cottages with my husband and 3 month old and it was perfect....from the peaceful and beautiful setting to the wooden clad cottage with a fireplace. It was a very relaxing place. The bush around us with many kangaroos and nightly visits from the possums was so quiet and lovely to explore. The cottages had everything you... More

We spent two wonderful nights in the Wattlebird apartment. We didn't see the owners at all, but nor did we need to. Everything was there and ready for us when we arrived late on Friday night. The cottage had a small self contained kitchen and outside bbq. The bedroom is a roomy loft upstairs with an amazing library. My partner... More

Have just spent a weekend (2 nights) in the Cormorant cottage, staying for a wedding held at the function centre. Wonderfully built cottage with beautiful fittings. The beds were heaven, with a double upstairs and a sofa bed downstairs to accommodate the 4 of us. A well-equipped kitchen, inc outside BBQ, allowed us to prepare meals. Included are some basic...

This is truly one of the best retreats to sit back and relax, unwind and just let the world go by. Bill and Pip certainly have created a great spot on the south coast. It is very private and the setting in the bush is wonderful. This was our 5th time back and each time has been great and we... More

My wife and I stayed for three days at Bawley Bush cottages at the beginning of November 2013. This was our third visit to this delightful and restful venue. There is something about the location with its bush land setting adjacent to a lake which immediately summons up peace and tranquillity and is ideal for anyone who is seeking to... More

These cottages have a lot going for them, but a bit more attention on the maintenance side would make them really excellent The location is just wonderful if you like the bush and have a car. Our cottage looked over a huge mowed area going down to a strip of trees with the lake beyond. Sitting in front of the... More

As owners we very much appreciate your comments both positive and negative and we especially acknowledge you for leaving a maintenance list. We won't be returning from our overseas trip until the end of May 2013 but we are disappointed that you found unaddressed maintenance issues that were annoying enough to comment on and that must have been overlooked by...

We stayed here at the Bawley Bush Cottages for two nights over the weekend. We chose the Chef's Cottage. We have stayed at many 4 - 5 star hotels before and was amazed when we first opened the door to our cottage - it was absolutely stunning! For the price we paid, it was immaculate and LARGE! It was honestly... More

Every owner would loves to receive reviews like this and we are delighted Sandra F and partner enjoyed their stay so much they put were moved to write a TA review. However as an owner-partner I point out to readers that the reviewer's heading describing us as a "5-star retreat" is happy-customer over-statement and not describing our actual rating. We... More

A group of quilting friends have stayed here several times now. Each time we absolutely love it and find it hard to leave. We arrive to find beds made up and fires laid, ready for a match. The cottages are cosy and well designed, and having the possibility of separate places means that many different women each have their own... More

We have been staying at Bawley Bush Cottages roughly twice a year for the past 5 years and love it. There are 5 cottages in total and of various sizes and now I understand the owners' house can also be rented. For winter months we prefer Chef's Cottage which is more secluded but in summer we like the Seabird (Oystercatcher... More
