We woke each morning to a chorus of birdsong in Margie's peaceful garden. Had home-brewed coffee in her gorgeous, secluded Bali hut and spent the rest of the morning reading and bird spotting on the sun-drenched upstairs deck. What a special place this is! Margie has thought of everything - even a great little sound system for our iPad! The modern European appliances are a bonus (everything is so clean and easy to use), and we had a lovely roast dinner cooked in her gorgeous kitchen which overlooks the garden, then a soak in the spa soothed away our busy city lives. The beds are SO comfortable and although the nights were cold in Katoomba the central heating kept us cosy while we snuggled on the couch with some DVDs and a good bottle of wine. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, a brisk afternoon walk in the mountains air along the nearby escarpment was followed by an open fire and a glass of mulled wine. This is the life!
PS Margie generously donated two nights to her favourite charity. While our stay was free, because we won this mid-week break at the fundraising night, we would pay anything to come back again! Jilea and Jack.

You were so lovely to deal with Margie and nothing was too much trouble..thank you for the chocies and sharing your stunning property. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous ! Everything is first class...BOSE stereos and an IPod for our phone along with the best 'Delonghi' appliances..so big and spacious with this incredible seashell awning over the north facing deck to give us much needed shade! I can't say enough even the bathrooms were gorgeous with fabulous fluffy towels.

Lovely Place but...
Lovely two storey weatherboard home, four good sized rooms with double beds let down by the little laminated notes attached to everything, the appliances didn't work (oven and coffee machine) and there was little mention that the downstairs "Honeymoon Retreat" would be occupied at the same time. We had a lovely stay for four couples coming to a wedding but I'm not sure the other occupants could say the same thing.

WOW WOW WOW..these are the only words to describe this stunning property. Margie you not only excel in providing stylish and outstanding accommodation but your pleasant manner and a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude is what makes JILLS RETREAT & JILLS HONEYMOON HIDEAWAY stand out from the rest! My family and I not only enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, gardens and birds but there are so many decks and a gorgeous Bali Hut we ran out of time to enjoy everything! Suffice to say we will DEFINITELY be back!!!Thank you HOLLY & FAMILY DECEMBER 2012

You really have created the most magnificent hideaway and escape; an environment that is conducive to romance with every detail considered and absolute quality in all aspects, wrapped up in one complete package. The only sad part of this experience was the having to leave! We will be back......frequently :-) Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy this little taste of heaven. See you again soon.
