We stayed at the Lilly Pilly Cottage. It is adjacent to the paddock with alpacas and is fringed by native bushland. Every morning, we see king parrots, rosellas of different kinds and honey eaters. The cottage is self contained and very clean, comfortable and well set up. It is entirely solar powered with a wood fire heater. Shower is very... More

Thank you for your review, we are happy that you enjoyed your experience in our native environment, and our cottages. It was great to hear the Yellow-bellied Gliders on our night walk, even if we didn't get to see them. More

A warm welcome from Peter and Marie Anne set the scene for our overnight stay. As soon as we arrived we knew we would want to stay longer than one night. Lomandra is a lovely one bedroom detached cottage with a balcony overlooking the woods. If you want peace and tranquility then this is the place. Well maintained and beautifully... More

I spent six nights in Lilly Pilly cottage - a truly magical experience. Secluded in a bush setting, but with the company of a herd of alpacas and friendly king parrots (feed supplied, watch out for fingers if hand feeding!). Eclectic decor, absolutely spotless, more than adequately provisioned, and attentive hosts - nothing was overlooked. I can't wait to visit... More

So glad that you were able to get some R & R, and enjoyed the birds and the alpacas. The cottages are located separately so they ensure privacy from each other and a little seclusion - just right for a bit of R & R. Thank you for your review. More

Thank you for your comments. It's amazing how the king parrots and the rosellas seem to know that if there is a car at the cottage, they might get a feed - seems to work for them most of the time. We are happy that you were able to switch off for a while during your busy holiday, and just... More

My husband and I stayed here for a night in early January. What a lovely place. Our cottage was spotless, beautifully decorated and just delightful. The ambiance of the place is something to be experienced. The owners are terrific with a real wish to please.

We stayed 2 nights at the two bedroom Boobialla cottage which I must say it's so far the best cottage I have been.
