Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bowlers bonding A group of bowlers and friends, partners and supporters stayed at Illowra last week. We were very impressed with the house, gardens and the whole atmosphere of the place. Comfortable, spacious with every inclusion you could need. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Spacious Hertiage house Lovely big house, well maintained, equipped & very comfortable. We celebrated my father in laws 80th birthday & we all had a great time. Close to everything but you feel as if you are in your own space - beautiful grounds. Will definitely be coming back. Owners were very nice & easy to deal with. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gracious old lady Illowra was loved by all 16 of us celebrating Xmas in July. Sure she has a few signs of wear and tear that an old lady would but she is charming & warm. The house is spotlessly clean, has a well fitted out kitchen and many extra little touches that made our stay wonderful. The clerestory seemed to be the most popular gathering spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Family celebration venue Spacious without being separate fabulous heated pool, excellent kitchen, great tennis court! Illowra was delightful as were the activities and sites to explore nearby. Rock climbing, beach, coffee shops, walks all good. Location should be proudly Nowra not Berry - this needs to be corrected

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love loved it! We have just had 3 wonderful days at Illowra for a family get together. There were 25 of us aged from 89 years down to 10 months and plenty in between the home catered beautifully for all of us. The pool and spa were fantastic, the tennis court and table tennis table tables were in constant use - and that kitchen bench could tell some stories :-) We found the house extremely well equipped and all of our bedding requests were no trouble for our hosts, our only disappointment was that we were not staying longer. We will be booking for an extra night next year and making our stay an annual event. Thankyou Richard and Cecelia
