what our guests have to say

"So very glad to stay once again at Kim's Cottage. We've now experienced this home during two very different seasons i.e. winter & spring and each one has its own appeal. Will return again for sure."

John & Mary Barroll - 28th September

"We have fallen in love with this little organic cottage. I feel regenerated, relaxed and remarkably well. The erotica in hidden corners is gently exciting, the wildlife at sunset is positively divine. A truly lovely experience."

Linda & Pepe Moctezuma - 19th-21st April

"Thanks for offering such a beautiful experience in Hunter Valley. We loved the earthy decor and natural surrounding (waking up to the cuckatoos near our bedroom).

Thanks Eden for making this weekend magical!"

Stephen + Wen - 12th June

"Just love it and hope to come back, had the loft room wish I had the same at home.

Thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Thank you very much for the big chill out."

Lynette Bevan, Sydney - 12th February

"Peaceful, tranquil oasis. Lovely home. Thank you!"

Vincent, Lola & Zara - 15th April

"Even in the pouring rain, we still had a wonderful stay. Thank you so much for an incredible experience."

-Ben + Kiri - 3rd May

"We loved our stay. The middle of winter with the fireplace blazing at night is so hard to beat!

Loved the unique feel and the many artworks around the place. I can now say I've been head (sculpture) hunting in the Hunter!

Thank you for your hospitality and that nothing was too much trouble!"

Sincerely, Adrian - June

What a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

We booked Corymbia because we wanted a comfortable, well designed bush getaway - and we were not disappointed

The location is superb and the interior design is a collection of carefully selected eclectic items and decorations in keeping with the beautifully designed home.

Did not get to meet the manger or owner but our enquires by phone and email were handled professionally and efficiently

We were a little bit trepidatious about the spiders that were mentioned in a review but only saw a 'daddy longlegs’. Everything was clean, neat and tidy.

The lighting was perfect and the furnishings and beds were ultra comfortable

And the bush setting made us feel we were in our own hideaway - miles away from everyone else. No traffic sounds (we were about 800m from the road)

We had a wonderful, private and comfortable stay, drove 5 mins down the road to a first class restaurant and the next day we were picked up by a local wine tour

What a great time! We will be back!! Have recommended it to friends.

Lack of care

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here in early Jan 2016, and ended up leaving early (losing money in the process). Very disappointed by the state of the house: extremely poor lighting in kitchen -the caretaker and companion visited and agreed with us, but didn't do anything to fix it -- I burned both hands due to darkness cooking at night. Found a huge ant nest under the toaster, a bit of a mess to clean up. No shower curtain in the bath (and no towel racks) so water goes everywhere, a mess. And wet towels. Poor lighting in the main living area, so difficult to read if cloudy or dark outside. This could be a lovely place, and our concerns/complaints have previously been noted in the book in the house, but it seems that the owner or caretaker don't care.

Owner's Response: Corymbia has been operating now for many years and this is the first time we have received a complaint such as this Nevertheless we have addressed those things that we can - such as shower curtain and lighting. The main reason Corymbia is so popular is it is nestled in the bush which means some visits by ants etc are inevitable. Ants do not 'nest' under toasters. It is important to get feedback from our guests so that we can constantly ensure Corymbia meets our high standards.

Beautiful house but lots and lots of spiders

  • 3 of 5

The house is awesome as is the location but the spiders and cobwebs were really bad. They were everywhere. Had they just been cleaned up before our arrival our stay would have been far more comfortable. We counted 7 huntsman spiders in the kitchen on the first night which freaked us out. Also it was annoying that we couldn't leave the doors open to catch the breeze because the bugs that came in attracted to the lights was really bad. We also couldn't use the fan provided because it was so loud.

We had ants and bugs in our bed and under our pillow. The window sill behind our bed was covered in a layer of dust and cobwebs.

The bathroom flooded every time we showered also.

This place has such great potential but it wasn't clean enough to have guests when we stayed.

It's a shame because the location is beautiful!

An isolated cottage in the bush

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully remote from civilization it has everything you need to escape the city. Approach through two gates and across paddocks, the house sits among the boulders and gum trees on the side of a hill. Off grid living with resident sculptures and complete solitude although you can glimpse the lush, farmed valley below through the bush. An open fire for winter, a wide deck for summer evenings and a covered veranda if it's raining. No TV, no Internet and limited mobile phone coverage (Telstra only, though there is a land line in the event of an emergency) completes the sense of escape. Resident bird life includes Kookaburras, Peaceful Doves with their distinctive call and Blue Wrens. Very close to Krinklewood winery and excellent restaurants at Margan Estate and Nightingale Wines an easy drive away. Comfortable bedding. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. A get away from it all location but with town facilities nearby. Dubbed the tranquil side of the Hunter, it is just that. I'll be back!
