It is a smaller property with only four villas (if you have a large party that takes up all four you can book the entire place), and is very tranquil and beautiful. As such the service is far beyond anything even the best hotels can offer – I rang to ask for a bottle of wine and had it delivered...

We have just spent two nights here and it is amazing. Totally beautiful, very comfortable and wonderful staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. They have an amazing spa as well. It is small and very intimate - only four rooms and we met lovely people there from all over the world. Food and all drinks are all included...

A gate, a worn and faded keypad, a steep and winding drive. Cast your eyes beyond the tray of chilled bubbles that magically appears and the stunning view and architecture preview the sheer luxury and indulgence heading your way. Hideaway (the Pavilion in which we stayed) was just that, with its own heated pool,double shower and freestanding bath looking over...

We booked a two night stay and the packages all include meals, wines & other beverages and non-motorised activities. The food is stunning. With only four rooms, the meals are very tailored to your needs and our Chef (David) was exceptionally accommodating with special requests. The wine choices are an eclectic mix of high quality Australian brands and some International...

Stayed over new years. Its a beautiful spot with great views and the rooms are spacious with great bathroom and very comfortable interior. However the offering fell well short of expectations. There is really nothing to do onsite except relax and swim in your pool. There are no activities offered. Mentions mointain bikes on the website but thats it. They...

Very upmarket self-contained cabins with discreet plunge pool and all the facilities including bluetooth hifi speakers. The price includes everything including food, drinks and a very efficient clothes washing service. Excellent service from top quality staff, great food, excellent wines. Like quite a number of Australian places outside the main cities the internet access is only just OK; the wifi...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Historically we have liked being quite discreet at street level, however we take our guests comments seriously and will look into signage & lighting options. Best wishes for now.

This is the perfect venue for rest, relaxation and to be rejuvenated. Within a short time the bustle of life/work faded allowing us to embrace and enjoy this venue.
