My husband and I went up to the Blue Mountains for a couple of nights whilst visiting Sydney. We were lucky to arrive just after a week of nonstop rain in NSW. Robyn’s apartment, Treetops was even better than expected- very comfortable, fabulous bed, elegantly decorated with style and attention to detail. We did some walks around Laura that first afternoon and then, at Robyn’s suggestion, dined at an eclectic restaurant, Madame Wang’s. The food here was wonderful and such big portions that we only managed 3 entrees between us. The following day we spent doing many of the wonderful bush walks around Katoomba followed up by a lunch at the old Carrington Hotel. Only two days were spent at Manderley but so relaxing, we felt we had been there for much longer. Thanks Robyn for all the extras in food and beverages. Helen and Andy

Property's Favourite Review
We stayed as a couple in Magical Manderley late August 2020, and were lucky enough to see snow falling over Leura from our lovely Treetops apartment. We are frequent visitors to Leura, and having stayed in many different locations over the years, would rate Magical Manderley as our favourite. The uniqueness, style, nostalgic themes of a bygone era are all interwoven into the taste of the beautiful property. Our first impression was the classical garden which spoke of utmost joy with its impressionistic portrayal of Roman and Tuscan features. Moving into our Treetops apartment, we were so happy to be staying in such a lovely abode, which was an apartment as comfortable as home. The furnishings were all tastefully selected, gorgeous linen in the bedroom and sumptuous bath towels and robes for that luxurious feel. The kitchen was amazing, most generously stocked for a good hearty breakfast and afternoon tea. The living room was just lovely, facing north embracing the sunlight. As we were there on a very cold weekend, we enjoyed staying in Treetops relaxing in that lovely living room with the fire gas heater on. Never a dull moment as the living room was filled with interesting books, magazines, DVDs, and a relaxing collection of CDs. We spent our Sunday afternoon watching “Rebecca”, and were totally mesmerised by the story as Magical Manderley was inspired by the grand house from that classic story. Thank you Robyn for making our stay so unique. We cannot wait to return in the Spring. COVID has made 2020 a tough year for us all, our little trip to Magical Manderley has done wonders for us.

Dear Tracy, It was such a delight to meet you both and welcome you to Manderley, Thank you for your wonderful Review and lovely comments. We very much appreciate you taking the time to describe Treetops so beautifully and are always so pleased to hear our guests enjoy the romantic gas log fire and Hydro 2-person spa together with English spa products and toiletries, When restoring Manderley in 2000, we chose a rather Tuscan style, especially with the gardens and grounds. Always very happy to present little complimentary extras for our guests to enjoy on their arrival. The classic dvd 'Rebecca' is a great choice for a relaxing afternoon. In these difficult and worrying times, delighted to hear you enjoyed you stay at Manderley. Take care and looking forward to seeing you again and welcoming you back in November. Our sincere thanks and appreciation. Regards, Robyn

What a wonderful place to stay in Leura. Manderley is just the perfect get away for a couple. Treetops is beautifully appointed and feels just like home. This is largely due to the extra touches from Robyn to make sure guests have everything they need. The abundance of sparkling water, liqueurs, peach nectar and the generous array of quality chocolates was such a special treat. Add to this the home made carrot cake, cheese, crackers and dips that were provided made us feel instantly welcome and at home. The wonderful toiletries, fluffy bath sheets and bath robes are pure luxury. The generous breakfast provisions were enough for a banquet for two. This place is an absolute delight, just a short walk from the Leura mall and it will become a regular weekend away. I cannot rate this highly enough. Thank you for making this so special Robyn.

We stayed in the Terrace House for 5 nights to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. The house was spacious and extremely well appointed. Liqueurs, locally made chocolates, beers and sparkling wine all generously supplied. The bed was huge and comfy, and the spa bath was a welcome reprieve at the end of each day. Robyn was a brilliant host, providing newspapers and new magazines for us regularly. She even gave us a beautiful gift for our wedding anniversary, along a home made banana cake, cheese, dips and biscuits. Great location in a leafy street only a few minutes walk to the Leura Mall. A real home away from home decorated tastefully in a way that gave us a feeling of yesteryear, but with modern amenities.
