Beautiful house and gardens - wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I'd certainly recommend this property for anyone seeking a beautiful house with glorious gardens and surroundings for a luxurious yet wonderfully affordable holiday! The house was extremely well-equipped and impeccably presented, with stunning views to boot. Our nine-person group had a lovely time. We'd all definitely stay here again, and would highly recommend the place to others.

Perfect for a girls weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our girls weekend away. They thought of everything from the amazing selection of DVDS and CDS to the well equipped kitchen. The beds were warm and comfortable, the showers had good pressure and were big enough to hold a small party in and the lounge areas were perfect for sitting around or reading a book. We arrived late on Friday night and when we woke up the next morning the view of the garden was serene and peaceful. The house was very secure and private and the ducted heating made for a warm constant temperature even when it was 4 degrees outside. Leura was a short drive from the property which had lovely restaurants and shops to browse in. We would definitely return.

Beautiful, Peaceful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Black Cockatoo Retreat! It was a peaceful location with beautiful, expansive views and an easy drive to the local attractions! The house was roomy and well kept with all the extras in the kitchen you always forget to bring.

Lovely! Would stay there again and bring more family/friends to enjoy it with us!

Excellent property. Beutiful grounds.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed for a perfect week-end getaway with friends. Everything clean, modern and comfortable. Only disappointment was downstairs bedroom near laundry. A little cramped but otherwise OK for short term stay. We will be recommending to friends.
