My partner and I stayed at the tranquil Bellbird Cottage for two nights and we do wish we had the chance to stay longer. Gretel and Tony are fabulous hosts and we were well and truly spoilt by their delicious home cooked breakfast every morning. The B&B is warm, cosy and inviting and you must spend some time looking out... More

My wife stayed at this glorious B & B for two nights, wish it had been longer. The owners, Gretel, Tony and Ky-mani the cat were wonderful and very inviting when we arrived. The apartment was clean with modern amenities and everything worked. The bed was big enough and very comfortable. The singing of the bellbirds was fantastic. The hosts... More

What a beautiful place to stay. Gretel and Tony were kind but not intrusive….a big plus for us. They had thought of everything. A scrumptious breakfast, big clean room, dvd basket including chocolates, king size bed with 1000 count sheets, cheese and crackers on arrival, magnificent bathroom with large corner bath overlooking the outside bush area where the bellbirds sang,...

Lorraine & Alan England. What a great place to 'chill-out'. Such a beautiful well-appointed B&B with a bathroom to die for. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and the food that Gretel prepares is so fantastic you couldn't imagine having that standard anywhere else (including the best restaurants). She has a wild imagination with food that materialises into the... More

Just a perfect B&B to relax and unwind after a hectic day at the office. Bird song is so soothing. Can't wait for breakfast. Bermagui is just a short drive away and is a quaint seaside coastal town with all the modern conveniences. Looking forward for my next stay.

This B&B has only one huge very private and well-appointed guest room with an on suite which puts many 5 star hotels to shame. Well stocked tea and coffee and fresh milk. Do not expect a fatty breakfast. A huge hot and cold breakfast tray is delivered every morning on time. Most of which has been freshly baked, cooked, squeezed,... More

We have just spent the weekend at Bellbird and from the moment we stepped out of the car we knew it was going to be special. The sounds of the bellbirds greet you and then Gretel leads you down the garden path to a haven that is spotlessly clean, private and peaceful. The breakfast is delicious you can tell its... More

Peaceful retreat with hosts who respect your privacy yet provide for everything you need. Very welcoming. A spacious bedroom and bathroom with lots of little luxuries to make you feel special. Breakfasts provided an array of choices using home made and locally sourced products. Delicious!

It was so lovely to have you return and thank you for your beautiful review. We love to play with food and our focus is always just home cooked, and taking advantage of what is seasonal and local.I think it's such a hoot that you refer to us as 'out of the box' and I know what a compliment it...
