Lovely location away from it all, and easy to find. We stayed in the Artists Cottage which was situated away from the other cabins which appeared to be fairly close together. The cottage is in need of some upkeep with flyscreens having fallen off a few windows, some windows didn't open and a large room at the back of the...

One of the best locations I've stayed in. Right in the middle of the valley, in front of a breath-taking view, sipping champagne in a hot and bubbly spa, none around, just the sound of many birds singing and kangaroos jumping! WOW!! I've spent 2 nights with my boyfriend in this perfect, romantic location. The fireplace and the electric blankets,...

Overall I was a little dissappointed with our stay. Secret Valley Escape had been on my list of places to stay for years. Pluses were the lovely secluded location, nice walks on the property, comfy bed and the wood fire. The spa was nice, but not as deep or hot as I would have liked. My rating is due to...

If your after peace and quiet in a beautiful location than this is the place. Cosy cabin with everything you need, including wood fire and spa! Nice bush walks up close and personal with nature not too far away from the larger towns (Katoomba ect) My husband and I had a wonderful relaxing weekend. Our only criticism is that the...

Rare found property situated only 30 minutes from Three Sisters with natural and wildlife environment. Enjoying in the outdoor jacuzzi on the balcony, romantic and carefree, heavenly feel with the sound of the birds overlooking the tranquil bushland. Well thought amenities with a kitchen, firelog, self convenient check in makes our stay perfect! Highly recommended!

Deborah maintains enough contact so that you feel comfortable and well informed. From directions to the hotel to well wishes to enjoy your stay. There was three days of heavy rain leading up to our stay. Meaning the road works on Blackheath Creek Road were very muddy but this didn't dampen our stay. The five cabins are well spaced and...

Luxury open plan style cosy cottage with combustion fire, ensuite bathroom, kitchenette, lounge and dining. We stayed in the Orana cottage, which is well styled in an outback/indigenous theme, with all the modern conveniences you'd want (i-pod dock, flat screen tv, blu-ray player). The spa on the verandah facing the mountains felt quite secluded despite being closer to the other...

What a relaxing weekend in the Blue Mountains. Just what the doctor ordered. We arrived late on Friday night after hitting a bit of traffic, but Deborah made us feel very welcome when we arrived. We were then directed to our cottage, which was the lovely 2 bedroom Artist Cottage. The kitchen was equipped with all the basics like salt/pepper...

The moment we drove through the gates to our little secret escape we already felt so relaxed and couldn't wait to get to our cabin to jump in the spa that was on the deck overlooking the beautiful valley, it is defiantly an experience I would recommend to everyone.

From the first call to Deborah to the goodbye I can only say "What a wonderful peaceful experience". At just a few hours from Sydney's CBD, we loved the peace & seclusion, the absolute privacy was wonderous. Nestled in true Australian bushland with a private jacuzzi on the front porch, we were greeted by kangaroos & all manner of bird...

“Choose the Artists Cottage if you want to be away from the other cabins, as they are 10m apart. Make sure you have clear travel instructions from the host as GPS will (unknowingly) guide you through private property.”
