My family and I stayed 1 night but wished we had booked longer. A great effort has gone into making this place awesome. We loved all the facitilities and took most the day moving from one activity to the next. Have already started to recommend this place to family and friends.

Lovely place to stay. Stayed here with my family. Kids wanted to stay only at accommodation because of the great facilities (did not want to sight see the blue mountains). Would recommend at least 2 nights to fully enjoy the place. Very clean and quiet. Great little pool to swim for the kids even though outside the glass enclosure around...

The place was so beautiful. There was heaps of things to do like toasting marshmallows by the campfire, bbq, tennis, badminton, indoor swimming. Julie and Michelle were so friendly and very helpful. Highly recommended!

There is so many beautiful little touches and suprises to staying at Possum's Hideaway. We stayed in the cottages twice now. They are rustic and cosy and so peaceful and relaxing. The wooden verandahs are lovely to sit and have a coffee. The fireplace was already lit when we walked in, making us feel so welcome. The facilities such as...

This place is beautiful and cosy and warm. The tiny gifts left with little msgs and fireplace were romantic and we had 3 different possum friend visitors return over 2 nights for berries! Would recommend :)

We are so pleased Clare that you enjoyed a relaxing romantic stay in one of our Possums Hideaway Cabins. It sounds like you really spoilt our resident possums too - just hope they don't expect to be fed berries all the time now!!

This was one of the most fun weekends we as a family had since we moved to Aistralia. We cannot thank you enough for making it so special. We were amazed on our araival how clean and modern the facilities were, yet still very comfortable for the kids. We would recommend your venue not just to our friends and family...

What a perfect getaway. Was expecting good things, but what we got was far beyond that. Little extras like a sweet on the pillow, and candles in the bathroom were small touches that made it memorable. The fireplace was even full of kindling ready to light. The grounds were beautifully manicured and staff very friendly. I would definitely recommend it...

Beautiful location and very well located for Blue Mountains and Scenic World. The bungalow was well maintained and well equipped (including very efficient gas fire and air conditioned heating, microwave, complimentary tea bags, coffee and marshmallows to toast). The back up facilities were fine. We did not expect that the only oven would be communal under a central canopy. However...

Often it's the attention to detail that can make such a difference when you stay somewhere. Without spoiling anything - I was really surprised with the little extra 'things' that went into making our stay romantic and enjoyable. On arrival our room was heated up and the log fire was ready to go. The accomodation is clean, cosy, and the...

It's the perfect little getaway amongst nature to cosy up with loved ones and relax in pure comfort. The fire place made it extra romantical. We would like to return one day with our kids and enjoy the surrounding area as a family.
