Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the beautiful photos We only stayed for the one night, wished it could have been a week, an idyllic home, lush garden, everything in the house was just as you'd wish, down to sharp knives in the kitchen (a total rarity in holiday rentals). Would happily recommend his lovely property. Pure delight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb ! Four of us stayed at the Nuns Quarters at St Raphael over a weekend. We had two bedrooms and bathrooms and a large open plan living kitchen area. There was a lovely amount of space which flowed onto an open deck and the garden. We had all the comforts of home, with tasteful décor and quality fittings. The kitchen was amazing, as were the views. It was so comfortable we needed to force ourselves out to enjoy the Blue Mountains!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice but don't ask for more towels Lovely venue, beautiful, and well equipped. But - we stayed 3 days, were given two towels each and the host flatly refused to supply more towels. For the price it was ridiculous stinginess. The attitude really turned us off the property. We travel a great deal and have never come across such counter productive behaviour.
