You step into the kitchen/lounge/dining room then walk up a few stairs to a gorgeously set up bedroom or down a few stairs to the spa/bathroom. The view on the verandah across to the ranges is...

My husband and I get so busy being parents that when we do get to go away, we prefer to be alone, in a cottage away from everyone else where we can just enjoy each others company. Never have we been somewhere that provides that magic as well as The Chapel does. The staff are so kind, The Chapel is... More

We stayed in the summer house which was such an amazing experience, we had our own private tennis court, volleyball court and fire pit! The reception woman was so relaxed and friendly, we felt right at home. The view from where we stayed was incredible, and it was so quiet and serene. All that we could hear was the chirping... More

Quality accommodation in beautiful setting with great horse riding. The horses are well cared for and our guide was very professional, friendly and informative. Close to trails for mountain biking and forest walks and a short drive to beaches. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Stayed here this weekend with friends in the talawahl Eco lodge, from the moment we opened the door we were blown away. The details in the building are beautiful. We arrived in the dark and when we opened the curtains in the morning well wow! The view is breath taking. We sat, we ate, we played tennis but the highlight... More

My husband and I came here for a 2 night stay at The Chapel on our honeymoon and LOVED it. We are certainly coming back here again! The accommodation was lovely, horse riding was excellent and the massages were so relaxing. Highly recommend it!

My Husband surprised me with this 3 night getaway in "The Santuary" Cottage at Clarendon Forest Retreat. I had no idea what to expect. We arrived at this beautiful sandstone cottage with a great wooden door in rolling hills. Upon opening the door I was "enchanted" (It took me 2 days to find the word to express how I felt).... More

Amazing retreat! Not your average hotel or Forrest retreat. It had all the beautiful parts of being in the bush with all the luxuries of a top hotel. Quite, private and peaceful! Thanks for the great stay!!

This is most picturesque, quiet spot for a getaway. The property was excellent and the people go out of their to be helpful. Can't wait to come back. Stayed in The Summer House, very romantic and idyllic.
