Our family had a great time at On A Hill. The property was more than we expected, it is situated in a peaceful location with perfect views. The house is tastefully decorated and the grandchildren loved their bedroom and the games and toys provided. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

Melanie Angel - 31st August 2020

This is one amazing house with lots of extra touches.

Gillian Sutton - 3rd August 2020

Rolling hills and tumbling skies - a welcome perspective for us all and had us researching the indigenous peoples and history of the Durran Durra region. We discovered that the name has been recorded as meaning 'messenger'. Mt Gillamatong gave us orientation to our beloved Braidwood.

Justin Ooi - 3rd August 2020

Fabulous house, very comfortable and stunning views. Loved seeing kangaroos hop along the field in the morning and exploring the countryside. The puppies and kids had a blast as well as the adults. Would 100% come and stay again. Divine home and a peaceful location.

Torn - was going to write a bad review to keep this place a secret :). But it is an amazing property, beautifully executed and great amenities. Perfect for 2 families but could take three as well.

Crawford - 3rd July 2020

An amazing property without fault. Large enough to comfortably house everyone but intimate enough to bury us all together. Immaculate home, stunning surrounds. Simply amazing!

Susana - 3rd July 2020
