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.

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.

Our family of 8 adults and 4 children celebrated my Mother's 60th birthday at Jills Retreat and Jills Hideaway over two nights. The house is truly beautiful, comfortable and warm, despite it being so cold outside! Everything we needed was on hand, the house was safe for small children and with Margie's recommendations we visited some lovely restaurants in the local area. Margie was so helpful, and made it so easy to organise and enjoy our stay. Thank you, and we hope to be back again soon!
