We have just returned from staying at Blue Cliffs retreat in the Hideaway villa. Was just perfect! A lovely retreat that allows you to reconnect with nature and each other. The spa was divine with large glass windows that looked out to the beautiful natural surroundings. Such a quiet, peaceful place, listening to the birds and frogs was delightful. The... More

I booked the Dreaming Villa at the last minute. There weren't many places available & I'd seen the poor reviews & was worried about the issues that I would find. Opening the door to the villa, my partner and I were AMAZED! This place is fantastic! The pictures really don't do this villa justice. It's larger inside than what it... More

We have such a high standard of villa and keeping them clean and fresh. We are so please to have the updated comments of guests who couldn't fault the cleaning, loved the 'fantastic' spa bath that looks down to the creek valley. The comment regarding the bathroom door is one we occasionally receive and when we check it out with... More

We booked a last minute, much needed weekend away and decided to treat ourselves at Blue Cliffs... we arrived at night but due to the very precise, easy-to-follow directions emailed to me, we had no trouble finding the retreat and the Dusk Villa. Although the solar lights were very helpful to find the stairs, it would have been nice if... More

What a lovely review. We will take on the helpful suggestions and keep improving the internal and external experience for guests. Spider webs are cleared with every clean, but they can be fast little web creators (certainly faster than the web designers we have used!). We will keep vigilante! What a lovely story of your experience. Thank you. More

If your looking for a place to switch off and hear the beautiful sounds of the country well this is the place you want to be at. From the time we drove into the property we could feel this was going to be amazing. And it was in every way! A very BIG credit to the owners....

Firstly, if you're looking for peace and tranquility, you'll love this place. All you can hear are the birds and the babble of the creek. You're in a valley in the middle of the bush, so if silence bothers you, don't stay here. However, if you're arriving after dark, you'll have no hope of finding the place or your villa.... More

Extremely disappointed with the condition of the cottage, our room was filled with dead flies, moths, bugs an rotten food in the fridge. When we contacted the owner to advise him of the above he expressed how unacceptable that was. Although he acknowledged this his only resolution was to send a cleaner with a vacuum, expecting us to wait over... More

We stayed in the Dusk Villa. We were lucky enough to meet Paul, the owner who showed us around the property and we thought that the Dusk Villa was by far the best on offer at Blue Cliffs.. The villa met all of our expectations and we had a wonderful weekend. All of the special facilities were fabulous, and we... More

First impressions certainly last a lifetime. Vintage is one way to describe the residence. Had to call the cleaner, I use the term cleaner loosely, on arrival. We called the cleaning company as there was a card saying to do so if the property needed attention in any way. Where do I begin. Dusty surfaces throughout, the toilet was not... More
