The moment we walked into kumbaingiri we felt at home & instantly relaxed. The owners have thought of everything with this property. Stylish, modern, comfortable & lots of exploring to do around the property & down to the river bed. We wished we stayed an extra few nights! We have already started planning our return

Kumbaingiri retreat is in a beautiful part of the country, dramatic hills and a sparkling river, nestled just outside of Bellingen. We only spent 5 days with another couple, but wished we could have spent a month. The house is beautiful and furnished like you are in someones home, not just a holiday house. Sitting in the spa, watching the... More

We recently spent a week at Kumbaingiri Retreat with our teenage and pre-teen children and had an amazing time. My partner is a friend of a friend of the owner and I didn’t believe his descriptions, until I arrived and realized he had actually undersold us and understated just how beautiful Kumbaingiri is. It is private, stylish, beautifully appointed inside,... More

Even though there was a mix up on the dates for our booking, the owner Stephen went out of his way to get the house prepared for our arrival. All of the previous reviews are correct in that this is a lovely place to stay. The house is very comfortable and and the grounds are well maintained. The location isn't... More

A group of girlfriends and myself spent a couple mid week days at the retreat and enjoyed the quiet life for the duration of our stay. The kitchen was well equipped for the feasts we prepared and the fire place and jacuzzi were added luxuries to a wonderfully relaxing get away. I highly recommend a visit, we will be back!

I recently spent a long weekend at Kumbaingiri with my partner who has been coming here for years. I have to say that it was fantastic. The retreat itself is spacious, stylish and very comfortable, and the attention to detail in terms of design, furniture, artworks, etc is great. I loved the garden and waking up to the amazing birdlife.... More

My husband and I, together with my parents, were intending to spend two nights at Kumbaingiri on our way to the Sunshine Coast. We liked it so much we rang the owners and asked if we could stay another night, and after that called again to book for a further night. Luckily they were able to accommodate us. The website...

I had dear friends from Germany arriving for a first time in Australia and they wanted to have a uniquely Australian experience. A friend had stayed at Kumbaingiri so after speaking with the owner we booked, we came, we experienced and we fell in love – just check the guestbook! We decided to drive there and took the longer inland... More

What a lovely country house. Set among a large Australian garden, on a hill above the river, Kumbaingiri is a wonderful place to spend a few days or weeks. The house has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms all with lovely appointments and crisp linen and fluffy towels. The living area is huge and comfortable with an extensive library containing current novels...

3 days of bliss! No noise, privacy, a wonderful spa – all less than 7 minutes from beautiful Bellingen. My husband and I have travelled and lived around the world and it was wonderful to recently discover Kumbaingiri Retreat. The Retreat is on a hill overlooking the valley and the river below. It has well established gardens and when we... More
