This place is incredible. We spent 5 nights here and it was so peaceful. The breakfasts were as delicious as the pictures show. Tony and Gretel are fantastic hosts and there was a perfect mix of privacy and being looked after. The scenery and room were so tranquil and it was a pleasure waking up to such a lovely view....

Bellbird B&B is as highly recommended as I can give. The place was very comfortable and private set in a bushland setting and lives up to it's name with the sound of bellbirds constantly there. The food was absolutely sensational with special needs like gluten free being looked after. Our host and hostess were very warm and welcoming. Best B&B... More

Thank you so much for such high recommendations. We are indeed lucky to have such a lovely setting, amongst the woodland yet within earshot of the ocean. We have a lot of fun with our breakfasts and so pleased you enjoyed them so much. Having a longer stay gave us even more excuse to play with food for you :)... More

The spacious room is beautifully appointed - everything has been thought of. It provided all the privacy we needed along with a lovely view of the woodlands. Gretel & Tony treat you like visiting royalty and nothing is too much trouble. Gretel describes herself as "just a cook' but the breakfasts were absolutely sensational. We stayed for 5 nights and...

My husband and I spent three weeks in Australia. We started in Melbourne and drove up the coast to Sydney. Bellbird cottage was one of our stop overs. It is the most beautiful B&B we have ever stayed at. The cottage itself is immaculate, no expense spared in any area. The finishing touches and the little extra's like chocolates on... More

My husband and I spent two nights nestled in this very beautiful woodland setting which took us a good way toward recovery after a difficult year. Gretel and Tony are very discreet hosts and the most wonderful cooks, The accommodation is very tasteful and luxuriant and the Burmagui area is the perfect place for this B&B.
