Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best place to celebrate a 70th birthday. I was lucky enough to be able to rent this lovely old home for 5 nights to celebrate my 70th birthday with ALL my family,a few friends and my Border Collie dog, and all us had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute. There was something to do for everyone from the toddler to us oldies - even when it rained. Loved it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Illowra @ Berry We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Illowra. It is a gorgeous property with fantastic grounds and good security for our four legged friends who accompanied us. It was an extended family get together of 21 people. The young children enjoyed playing with the array of toys available at Illowra, whilst the adults and older children enjoyed tennis, table tennis and swimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you would want in a holiday escape Illowra gave us the opportunity to totally unwind after a stressful period of time. We were spoilt for choice with sleeping and relaxing areas. We gave up trying to count the number of chairs throughout the house and extensive gardens. so many different areas to enjoy without leaving the grounds. While the main house offered all the mod cons including foxtel and good internet access, very effective air conditioning, the conservatory gave the perfect balance between outdoor and indoor living. Gardens were magnificent and offered homes to lots of birds such as wrens and kookaburras which were lovely to watch. The house was spotlessly clean and we particularly noticed that the sheets on the beds had even been pressed - such a nice touch. The house also had a wonderful granny flat - ideal for a separate family group and the pool and spa and tennis court just rounded off the perfect escape. Of a morning it was a lovely stroll to get a coffee and paper nearby and the bakery in Bomaderry sold lovely food. Belinda was very helpful at all times which gave us total peace about the entire booking. Thank you Belinda, we had a brilliant time away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place for a group to stay. Had a great time. The house is so comfortable and heaps of room. Spa and pool were a bonus. Everyone had a ball. Would always book there again if the occasion arose. Down for a wedding and it added to a great weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Christmas accommodation Our family of sixteen was comfortably accommodated. The pool, spa and tennis court were in regular use, and the large, well-appointed kitchen easily met our needs. The house also allowed the use of different spaces for various activities.
