Great House Poor Management

  • 2 of 5

Gate remote did not work upon arrival.

Property manager had not deactivated house alarm before our arrival.

House heating did not work upon arrival.

There was a lamp left in the lounge without a lightbulb, still connected to the live electric circuit.

Deck covered with fungus, too slippery in wet to occupy.

Structural damage to the house, it gave us the impression that the section could go anytime.

No coffee capsules, milk juice (the basics for $580/night), not even a hairdryer.

Some sections of the house such as around window frames covered with a ton of cobweb.

Booked for three and they left a made-up fold-out double bed in the middle of the lounge – the house has got three bedrooms too.

The place is overpriced and is everything but the “the utmost comfort and luxury” it has been advertised as.

Perfect weekend away

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect house for our girls weekend away in a beautiful setting. Extremely spacious, very clean and it felt very luxurious. The kitchen is also a great space for big cookups with all the utensils needed.

We will definitely be retuning.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great couple of days with another family. House is fantastic and very comfortable. The gardens are beautiful. We loved the open fire.. Would definitely recommend this property for a peaceful getaway. Bundanoon is a very quaint little town with great cafes for your early morning coffee only a quick walk away. Thank You.

Picture perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 7) stayed for 2 nights as a present for our mum to spend quality time together. The house was amazing! My mum loves sandstone and she was in awe of the house. If it were for sale, she'd buy it! Even though its the middle of winter, the house was super warm and cosy, plenty of space for everyone and everything was nice, clean and tidy. Netflix was great for movies at night and the foosball table gave hours of competitive fun. Would love to stay there again! Thank you for an amazing house and letting us stay!

Peaceful and realxing

  • 4 of 5

We all enjoyed our girls weekend stay at the Gullies Retreat. Close to the village and far enough away to enjoy the solitude.
