Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Awesome My hubby and I spent four nights at Kookaburra Retreat and what a wonderful experience it was. Our previous visit to this property was with a group of friends which we also thoroughly enjoyed. Stunning views are the first thing you notice on arrival. The property is beautifully furnished with top of the range linen and fluffy towels. There are beautiful pieces of furniture throughout the property which give it a homely feel and you can tell that a lot of thought went into decorating. We even braved the cold and sat on the back deck drinking our complimentary Moët..although it wasn't too uncomfortable as there are a lot of blankets we could use that are provided for this purpose. Definitely a six star property Ray and Susan /Terrigal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtaking Kookaburra retreat was a magical escape. We throughly enjoyed our family weekend here, the minute you walk in the doors your jaw hits the floor- the views are breathtaking and the luxury continues with every single little detail. We couldn't recommend it enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Lived up to and exceeded our expectations! The house and location were perfect. It was everything we had hoped for in a family winter break - warm and cosy house to return to after a day of hiking in the Blue mountains. We will definitely be back!
