The cottage is very private, long way of the main road so it was nice to lie on the sun bed and enjoy the sun without hearing cars go by. The room could have done with a good clean, (dinning table had something spilled on it and one of the pillow cases on the bed had what looked like blood... More

We went there for a mid week getaway and we were really impressed. Romantic, isolated and breath-taking views. We enjoyed the private spa and sauna. The Dreaming Villa was clean and tidy with fresh towels when we arrived.

The grounds were absolutely stunning, wonderful time of the year to visit the area. The cottage was adjacent to the main part of the house that is actually facing the swimming pool, so there is no access directly from the Gatsby Cottage. The swimming pool is solar heated and therefore not fit for purpose (for us) as the water was... More

We celebrated our first anniversary at this lovely hideaway, the cottage is very private, easy to find, has a lovely bush setting with pool to ourselves, we enjoyed a lovely meal at the local pub to top off our night. Thanks Paul and Joy

The Dreaming Villa where we stayed was perfect for that romantic getaway. The Villa was very clean, the sauna was good as was the rest of the villa. The only downside was the size off the spa built for two but comfortable for one and the access road was more suitable for a 4 wheel drive.

We recently stayed in the "Hideaway Cabin" for one night at the over priced cost of $440. On arrival we first noticed that the place had not been cleaned properly for quite some time as there were dirty benches, the floor had not been cleaned and overall the place looked run down. It does state in the paperwork that you... More

This review is untrue in almost every aspect. Before going to the facts, here is the previous review from the guests who stayed at Hideaway right before this guest: “It was very secluded and private, in fact we didn't see anyone else the whole weekend. The villa was clean and lovely, and they had thoughtfully left the heaters on for... More
