Rated 3 out of 5 by from Illowra at Berry We spent a week in this property. It is a large elegant early 1900's house set in well-tended, spacious grounds which include a nice all-weather tennis court. Beaches are roughly ten minutes away by car. The rent was at the top end for this type of property but we found the property to be tired, it would benefit hugely from a refresh. Eg some of the appliances did not operate well (dishwasher, clothes drier), some of the carpets and blinds needed cleaning, some of the wooden toilet seats were in need of a clean/refinish, hallway runners were potentially dangerous, in that they bunched up and created a tripping hazard, and so on. Another disappointment for us was that the pool heating was not operating meaning the pool was unusable for all except the hardiest (ie the kids!). To be fair, the owners maintain this was because we did not replace the pool covers each night but our view is this should not have prevented the heater working, as we had replaced the spa cover from which the heat was generated. Summary: with a thorough refresh this would be a lovely property to hold, for example, a major birthday celebration, family reunion or similar

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Illowra Wow what can I say this old world house had charm plus. The house was well appointed with lots of room for everyone to spread out or get together. Who would have thought we would be in the spa at night on a cold rainy May night but we made use of it each night. We loved the heated towel rails in all the bathrooms as well as the conservatory which was just beautiful. Thank you for your hospitality.

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.
