Great place. I had a fantastic night's stay! The property is clean and modern with all the mod cons and all the necessities supplied. I hope to return!
This house was even more stunning in real life than it was in the pictures. Gorgeous and spacious, we went for my 30th birthday and had a fantastic time. It’s a short walk from the house to the town, so it’s the perfect balance of feeling very remote but also being close enough to be a short walk to grab a coffee or pick up groceries. We would definitely stay here again.
beautiful weekend getaway - the underfloor heating was a welcome addition to a chilly weekend away.
This venue is the perfect place for a getaway. It has a great scenic view down the valley from the balcony and from "the cube", a vast modernist space perfect for entertaining and relaxing. From the house you can easily walk to the nearby village of Bundanoon, or explore the valley further, including visiting the rustic farmlands nearby. The rooms are cozy with comfortable beds, and the master suite is truly massive for a couple who likes extra space. The place is huge - with plenty of room for 10 guests to enjoy their stay in this luxurious space. We certainly enjoyed our stay here - an easy 5 stars
Thanks for having us - great place and communication was super easy. Will come again!
Lovely weekend away, nice and clean and good communication with staff
Great location, isolated and would recommend for a retreat
Great Location, great views , beautiful fire place!!!!
Nice isolated home. Very nicely furnished and very spacious
Gorgeous space! Perfect for a girls weekend for my friends hens due to the large Living room it made it easier to be all together rathe than splitting the group because we wouldn’t of had as much space at some other properties so this was perfect for what we had organised.
Thanks to the team for preparing such a great place to stay for our weekend getaway. The area itself was so beautiful, surrounded by lush greenery and such a close walk to the local shops and markets on the weekend. The house itself is stunningly designed. The middle lounge area is huge and so spacious - perfect for families where little kids can play. There was plenty of kitchenware and glassware for all occasions. We appreciated the kids crockery available options also. There is loungeroom flooring is heated and was lovely on a cold night. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the heating panels working in the bedrooms - we reached out and were given instructions to open the valves, but that didn't work, unfortunately. We did ask for the instructions for the central rooms controller but no instructions were passed on, so there was no bedroom heating during a really wet and cold weekend and the loungeroom flooring only heated for the night we arrived and the next day. We were offered an extra oil heater but we refused it in the end as they were only tiny. The house booklet of instructions wasn't diagramed so the description of what to do for the stove starting and the heating was a bit off. There was plenty of wood available to start a fire in the beautiful fireplace in the loungeroom but any wood for the remaining days we stayed were being rained on outside, if the firewood had a cover on it to assist guests with starting a fire with dry wood would have been a really considered approach. And if there was an axe we would have been able to chop the large pieces to then have mid-range wood to start the fires more easily. I will say the response time for answering my questions was reasonably fast, which was appreciated. It was definitely a beautiful place, but i think if they fixed the few things above it would be an incredible stay :)
Beautiful house in a tranquil location. Bundanoon is a stunning area!
Amazing location and beautiful house. Lovely weekend away
Very stylish retreat - great for a getaway
Fantastic accommodation – There were six architects in the group (and they are not easily pleased) and they thought is worked beautifully. Picturesque setting, comfortable climate control.Maria
Gullies Retreat is the perfect place for a large group holiday. Super comfortable and chic with great amenities and sincerely good vibes.'Louisa
Lovely house & area! Very close to town & some beautiful bush walks. Plenty of room for a group of adults but the trundle beds & sofa weren’t the best for sleeping.
Beautiful large house in a private secluded setting. Walking distance to the local village for coffee and supplies. A great place for a weekend getaway.
Fabulous property. Fabulous location. We were two families and had enough room and enjoyed the property immensely.Kim
This place is very nice and great for a group to stay in. It's a 5 min walk from the town and close to walking trails. The main area is very large and nice and the kitchen is well equipped. There was no firewood supplied and there was no soap in the showers as advertised.
Nice and tucked away perfect little get away for a 30th, short walk from the town Center with great cafes. The property doesn’t have much in the way of condiments and the wood wasn’t inside or dry so we couldn’t really use the fireplace.
This would have to be one of the best country accommodations we have had the chance to stay in! The kids loved the spacious rooms. Thank you.Mustafa
This house was absolutely stunning. Unfortunately we weren’t able to get into the house until 3:45pm despite checking being at 3pm. 10 of us had to wait out the front in the cold until the cleaners finished. I received a call at 2:45pm saying the cleaners are still in there but they arrived at 2:50pm. I felt the house cleaning was rushed as there were a few things still dirty such as the bbq, mirrors and the sliding door. We mentioned about the bins being full and they were picked up right away. Other than that we all had a very enjoyable stay and would return again!
Lovely place to come with friends and family, my friends and I had a great time relaxing. I’d definitely recommend, our overall rating for the host and for the retreat would be 8/10. The host was 1.5 hours late due to cleaning and we noticed that there were too few of the basic amenities that we needed. P.S The town of Bundanoon is lovely with the most friendly residents and the coffee is amazing.
This house is in a great location and is walking distance to local cafe's, the local pub and walking tracks. The house opens up to a beautiful and peaceful view. The house is large with a great central living area and equipped kitchen.
If you're looking for the perfect getaway this is the place. Beautiful home with a lot of space and a great fireplace. We felt right at home as soon as we got there and were greeted by Kookaburras on the balcony. Great things to do in the area such as bush walks and glow warm caves. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone. We would gladly come back. Absolutely perfect stay thank you!
We loved our stay at The Gullies Retreat. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay! We hope to definitely come back here soon.
The property was perfect for our family getaway. It was situated in a great location, was secluded and was ideal for a country retreat. The home offered more than required, the dcor was modern and welcoming. Our family thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the fireplace and enjoying each others company in the spacious lounge room. We will be back for sure! Thank you Highlands Holidays for making such an easy process, you were well organised. Kristy
