This is our second visit to the Bower and we loved it. It’s peaceful private and there is everything you need for a holiday. It is run by friendly people and the ‘bowers’ as they call them are very well designed and fitted out. You feel as if you are alone in the bush, but you are not, since every...

Hi valjeanery, Thanks for your time in providing that feedback on your second visit to The Bower. We're glad you enjoyed your stay ... sorry that the possum wasn't around while you were with us .. as you may've seen in previous reviews, he's rather unpredictable ! Yes, we nearly completed the reno/makeover on our original Gold Bower and hope...

All those great reviews are right! We spent two nights in the Red Bower (cottage). It's by itself, surrounded by trees with birds and, at least, a possum which comes to the feeder at night. The cottage is totally modern with extra touches everywhere, such as floor to ceiling glass almost all around, a Jacuzzi tub, two person shower, deck...

We stayed at the Bower for 2 nights in the Premium 1 bedroom Spa on (6-7th Mar '14) for our Babymoon. As soon as we arrived at our cabin we felt relaxed. This is truly unique accommodation offering privacy, nature and with all the modern comforts to make this a home away from home. Loved it!

A favorite place of ours when on the south coast. Self-contained & very private bungalows ensure a romantic getaway for couples. We have stayed both in summer & winter and have never been disappointed. Happy to share recommendation - though a bit reluctant if this will make reservations more difficult!

I can only ditto all the fabulous reviews others have written. We had a magical three night stay. The (gold) bower was private, comfortable and a great environment for relaxing. There are some nice paths for short bush walks - if you can tear yourself away from the double spa, wood fire, or bush views from the deck. It was...

Our recent stay in the Red Bower at Bower at Broulee was truly memorable, thanks to the top notch accommodation, beautifully peaceful surroundings and friendly wildlife. We were visited by laughing kookaburras, friendly Rosellas, cheeky Lorikeets, cute red-browed finches and there was even an echidna and wallaby to grace the scene. It really was special being able to watch or...
