My family and I had a fabulous stay at JILLS RETREAT. The house was amazing. Rooms were gorgeous and the beds were extremely comfortable. I particularly enjoyed the spa bath! Kitchen is large enough for entertaining. The gardens are immaculate and the deck was great to lay back and enjoy the surrounding countryside. Would recommend the house for all seasons! And it's close to the town centre. Looking forward to my next stay!

We have just stayed at Jill's Retreat and Honeymoon Hideaway for a Christmas in July weekend. We were 10 people and took both upstairs and downstairs and had an amazing stay. Margie the owner could not have been more helpful in assisting us to organize the stay and her team had put up a Christmas tree and decorations to help us get in the festive mood. The house is beautifully clean and tidy and lovingly furnished and has everything you could want. The central heating worked a treat and the open fire was wonderful. Will certainly be staying again.

We stayed at JILLS RETREAT and had a wonderful time. It is even nicer than the photos on the internet. Definitely the WOW factor and definitely 5 stars..!
The weather was wonderful and my family had a lovely time sitting on the various decks overlooking the large lush gardens and a 'natural spring'. There is a real Balinese feel. There is everything you could need including a fantastic French Tub overlooking the garden as well as a Spa Bath with another view of the garden where you can soak up the bubbles listening to music with the awesome BOSE systems (there's two). We did a lot of cooking and there are lovely saucepans and appliances and 2 big BBQ's. The linen is crisp white and good quality, white fluffy towels and all mod cons including a much needed Cappuccino machine in the mornings...
We didn't venture out to see too much of the Blue Mountains unfortunately as we enjoyed the tranquil surroundings too much. The birdlife and peace were so enjoyable. To add to our delight we heard splashing in the pond in what is a huge backyard of stunning trees and a sea of green lawn... to our amazement there were 3 resident ducks in the pond!! The BALI HUT was so lovely to relax and read a book... snuggled within the trees ...just heaven. There is a giant 'sea-shell' shaped awning over a huge deck that has separate lounge and dining areas which was like being at home. It wasn't cold enough for the log-fire so we hope to come back in Winter. Big bedrooms, beautiful quality linen and towels, all stainless appliances, quality tvs and multi media, a supply of wonderful books and games and so many movies provided what else could you need. Margie the OWNER was also very lovely to deal with and recommended lovely restaurants, things to do in the area along with a lovely place for us to get massages (5 min walk from JILLS). You can even get a private dinner arranged for you at the house.. The best part was 'Breakfast in Bed' delivered with the morning paper ! There is also wonderful hampers on offer and BBQ packs. We would highly recommend JILLS RETREAT to any families or friends wanting to catch up, eat good food, drink nice wine, laugh and enjoy! ..we wish we had longer to stay. JUST STUNNING!
Thank you from the Checkley Family ! See you again soon.

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.
