“Cosy eco-cottage in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

Our family trip to the Blue Mountains was made by our stay at this lovely set-up. It was located just outside Wentworth Falls, but far enough off the road to feel isolated and peaceful. We stayed at the Wattle cottage which is one of the smaller cottages. There was a very efficient wood-burning free-standing fire which we found easy to operate (if the instructions on the wall are followed!). The power is solar but we found no problem with supply although lighting in the kitchen was more 'atmospheric' than necessary. A TV & DVD player were provided. For internet junkies I can tell you there is no problem with a 3G signal. Cooking facilities were fine too. The composting toilet was a revelation and we experienced no issues with it. The cottage decor is lovely although ramshackle in places. There is a deliberate eclectic look which is partly due to a clever re-use of reclaimed/reused furniture. In places there is a rough and ready feel but this added to the atmosphere we felt. You will need to leave $10 a day for a 'wood/gas 'levy' and you will have to clean the cottage before departure. There kis no vacuum cleaner so a wipe down and sweep out is all that is needed. Other facilities include a hammock,gas BBQ, picnic table, bird-table and a there's a kids cottage nearby.
We had a great stay and were sorry to be heading back to the city. We will do our best to be back!!

An extraordinarily beautiful location, charming, comfortable cottages, well-furnished and generously stocked with culinary luxuries such as the owner's home-made relish and jam. The birds, the bush, the views, the area and the friendly, helpful yet unobtrusive service from the knowledgeable hosts made this a wonderful weekend for our extended family.
very well priced too, and whilst it is a peerfect base for enjoying the Blue Mountains, it was tempting to spend the time at "home" at Bunjaree, as everything we wanted or needed was there.

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Wattle Cottage, which I believe is the smallest of the range. The cottage was absolutely beautiful and it was exactly what we were hoping for for our quiet, relaxing long weekend away.

Directions to our place were perfect - and on our arrival we found a beautiful cottage. The place was absolutely spotless on arrival which was a big relief when coming to a cottage. The decorations and fitout made the cottage instantly feel like our home.

The fire was really warm, and easy and fun to use, and there was a comfy couch in front of it.
Bed was extremely comfortable, clean and fresh
Spa was fantastic - clean and water was hot.
There is also a tv and dvd player.

The cottage is down a dirt road into the forest, so you feel like you are completely alone in the middle of the forest - yet you are only a 2 minute drive from wentworth falls (and a 5-15 min drive to Leura and Katoomba).

There is no reception or office on site (which is clear in the description) - but we never would have needed one anyway.

One night we decided to take a taxi to the town (as I didn't feel like driving) - so we called the number that was written down in the cottage, and the taxi came to our door (we did have to make a few calls to help them find us though!) Easy!

Overall this place was great and we will definitely go back in the future.
