Dantosa Blue Mountains Retreat provides you with a secluded 9-acre estate with numerous walking paths, private gardens, a private lake, floating lake house, tennis court, BBQ facilities, gazebo and even its own croquet lawn. Dantosa is a 5-minute drive from the famous Three Sisters and the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park. Originally a goat farm, the property has a 30-year-old established Blue Mountains garden and accommodation in two buildings - Dantosa House and nearby Dantosa Cottage. When booking Dantosa House, there is accommodation for 9 guests in shared bedrooms. Dantosa House is available for Sundays to Thursdays only. A minimum booking of 2 nights is required.
At Dantosa you will enjoy total privacy. As one guest puts it, “You live in a beautiful oasis, and yet you are only minutes away from restaurants, shops and the national park.” Enjoy a game of tennis, kayaking on the lake, a game of boules or a stroll in the beautiful gardens. After a day’s bushwalking, come back to luxury. Arrange for a local chef to cater for your group, take a spa bath, or simply gather around the log fireplace with a glass of wine and your friends.
