A fantastic find in the mountains. They place has a homely feel and felt instantly comfortable the moment we walked in. The open living space and bathtub were a winner! Will definitely book this place again.

Lovely property but just for a night.

  • 4 of 5


- large area

-Nicely appointed

-great outlook

-good heating


-One set of everything e.g. Cutlery. No chance of cooking more than one meal with only 2 knives and forks. Why have a dishwasher?

- No areas for toiletries

- Decor that looks like it has been there since Xmas including the dust.

- Rules rules rules. Emailed, texted and also stuck all over the property. Seriously why?

Even ridiculous things like leaving the blinds at half mast on exit should not be a job for the guests to do. This was reinforced by another reminder text at 9am on the day we left. Made us feel like we were at school camp not on our honeymoon. We're a middle aged couple but felt we were treated like children.

- 3:30pm check in. No where have I ever experienced this. I felt like we had half a stay.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the beautiful outlook of the property and thought it well heated, large & nicely appointed. Really disappointed we only received 4 stars and not 5 stars as we normally do. I will address the issues raised but feel there is unnecessary malice here. We work so hard to have a beautiful property and happy guests. This review is very disappointing and unfortunately tainted as some guests are so very demanding..we were treated as if we were the Hilton Hotel not self contained accommodation. We offer so many lovely luxuries including the bath overlooking the gardens, romantic 4poster bed and fireplace and stunning gardens. Egyptian cotton sheets and lovely fluffy towels.. These guests were unhappy that we simply ask for respect for us and the apartment be left as they found it but they assumed there was a 'maid service' ..we have cleaners of course but you can't leave it a total mess..we have 2 sets of crockery and cutlery in the kitchen and 1 set under the outside sink with the BBQ for convenience for inside and outside cooking. We thought 3 sets was ample and will add more. There is a cupboard for toiletries in the bathroom and 3 bedside drawers on either side of the bed. The small array of XMAS decorations are out because it's 'Xmas in July' in the blue mountains. We don't leave them out all year ..just for the July festival. Rules are absolutely not plastered around..there is one in the guest directory and emailed initially with the booking as per new laws for safety and STAYZ T&C's. Unfortunately we strive to please all guests but on this occasion we were very disrespected. As per other reviews guests are very impressed with the care and attention we offer as guests happiness is paramount to us. We look forward to more 5star reviews in the future. Margie

Contemporary elegance and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, luxuriously appointed and spacious studio with comfort and tranquility in mind. Everything is perfect! Plush 4 poster bed with crisp percale linens, very well equipped kitchen, and a big french bath overlooking the gardens. The lounge area has all the audio visual needs covered and even an eco-fire place. Its hard to drag yourself away but if you venture out on a stroll through the grounds complete with a massive Balinese style day bed you will be glad you did. Thank you to the owner Maggie who aside from being an absolute delight to deal with has left nothing to chance in making this your favourite place to hideaway.

Great property.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our short 2 night stay here, very romantic and quaint place. Super clean. Few things, it would have been nice to have more than 1 towel each especially as there is a bath so we literally had to stand and dry before running to the shower.

We would have loved a small amount of milk to be left just so we could have had a cuppa when we arrived and to be honest parking down the street was a bit of a nuisance.

I also tripped on the entrance to the unit as there is quite a big step which at night I could not see so some lighting here or reflective strip would be great!

Otherwise this property is stunning and in a good location-you really need a car in this area.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim thanks for the lovely comments about Jills Honeymoon especially that is it very romantic, good location, 'super clean' and 'Stunning' WOW! That's fantastic feedback...My Mngr and 'the team' work very hard to keep standards high so it is great to hear directly from guests about their experience. We pride ourselves on offering everything a 'Hotel' would offer even though we are 'self contained' accommodation. We offer massages on-site, gorgeous Hampers including Hot & Cold Breakfasts, BBQ Hampers, Wine and Chesse, Antipasto plates along with meals and a 'private Chef' that cooks, cleans up and leaves you to enjoy with a glass of bubbles or wine. There is also coffees, teas, sugars, condiments, shampoos conditioners, beautiful egyptian cotton linen and gorgeous fluffy towels. Many other hosts don't supply linen or towels so again we are proud to offer these to our guests. We also offer to purchase any goods you wish and have them in the fridge awaiting your arrival so milk could easily have been organised for you. We are in a small 'dead-end' street - cul-de-sac... so if parking is not available on the driveway it is very convenient for guests as no traffic at all to worry about. You don't need a car unless you are grocery shopping as it is walking distance to Leura and Katoomba villages .which are very close to JILLS. I will put a reflective strip on the step also as suggested thanks Kim..apologies we haven't heard of this being an issue before so again great to bring it to our attention. Thanks again for the wonderful feedback. Regards Margie
