“The ultimate place to relax and recharge”
Reviewed January 31, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

My husband and two children stayed at Jagundami for a long, long weekend. Oh, what a place! From the minute we walked through the door it felt like we had found a small piece of paradise. All the little extras have been thought of... from the design of the property, looking out over lush rainforest, to the sumptuous breakfast supplies, fully equipped kitchen and decadent spa on the deck. We really felt spoilt. We arranged for our two children to stay before we came and they were also made to feel very welcome. Jude, the owner, even thought of the little things they'd enjoy such as board games, which was wonderful. A tour through the main house was a treat. Jude is an established and amazing artist, and walking through her house was like having a personal tour of an art gallery. All in all we loved our stay and will definitely be back.

My advice to anyone heading that way is to leave your stress and the door, grab a glass of wine and hop in the spa and enjoy the sounds of the Australian bush.

“A rare and exceptional level of comfort and relaxation”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 for a stay in November 2013

We have been for­tu­nate enough to stay at Jagun­dami twice now.

One just feels the ten­sion of daily life start to slip away upon turn­ing into the dri­ve­way of this incred­i­ble place.

The accom­mo­da­tion is very styl­ish and incred­i­bly warm and wel­com­ing. Com­fort­able sofas and an excep­tional bed await the weary trav­eller. The whole place is so well equipped — every­thing you could pos­si­bly need in the kitchen and thought­ful touches such as a great selec­tion of books and games. The atten­tion to detail is sec­ond to none.

Judith is a very gra­cious host and is able to answer any ques­tions you may have about places to visit in the local area.

Jagun­dami is a rare find — a lux­ury retreat in beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings, and did I men­tion the hot tub? Aaaaaaahhhhhh!

Thanks Judith, we’ll be back (again!)

“A perfect place to relax”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 for a stay in July 2013

We have had the pleasure to stay at Jagundami several times and cannot recommend it highly enough. Judith, the owner, shows not only a wonderful artistic touch in the presentation of the accommodation but there is great attention to detail and there is nothing that one feels is missing when staying there. The bed, furniture and furnishings are luxurious and there is a special ambience, giving the feeling of peace, tranquillity and relaxation. The outside spa presents an added dimension as the outside scenery can be absorbed and the beautiful birds admired. All in all, this is something to be savoured and to be returned to again and again.

“A very special place to connect with nature and yourself”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

On arrival we were delighted to step into a luxurious and homely place. We were comfortable from the start. Sitting in the spa overlooking the sunset with a glass of wine in hand was a treat. This is a place for a couple to connect with each other and nature. It is peaceful, beautiful and totally relaxing. You can choose to see other people or choose not to.

“Hard to beat”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We found Jagundami while meandering slowly up the east coast finding a different place to stay each night. We ended up breaking the trip and stopping here to stay for 4 nights and would have stayed longer if we had had more time. This really is an incredible spot and our favourite of the trip by a mile.

Quiet, spacious and extraordinarily comfortable - my first thought on arrival was that the pictures on the website really do not do the place justice. Highlights included sunset from the terrace hot tub, breakfast in the sun surrounded by beautiful scenery, the fully equipped kitchen, the best selection of books I have encountered and of course Valla itself which is a great spot with vast expanses of deserted beach and amazing rock pools to explore.

“Relaxing Retreat”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 for a stay in March 2011

Can’t wait to come back! Spent a week at Jagun­dami in March– weather was beau­ti­ful, per­fect for the beach (a short trip down the road). The guest house is laid out like a lux­ury spa.

The kitchen is fully equipped, so there’s no need to eat out every meal. Turn left out the dri­ve­way for a run­ning trail through the woods (dirt road with no traf­fic).

This house is a gem. A truly relaxing retreat.

“A jewel of a guest retreat”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This is probably the most romantic guest retreat you will ever find. It combines style, comfort, beauty and serenity.
Situated in beautiful and natural surroundings, close to breathtaking, lonely beaches, this aesthetically perfect and and uniquely situated guest retreat offers a peaceful and at the same time interesting experience.
Our gracious host, Judith, made our stay even more enjoyable by taking us to some surrounding small towns by the sea and in the hills.
Difficult not to use superlatives.
