LOOKING TO RELAX? THIS IS THE PLACE!
From the moment we walked into the property, all the weight came off our shoulders. Quiet! Birds chirping and the fountain water running was all that could be heard!
Karen was helpful from the moment we booked this place till the moment we left! Easy check in and check out.
Villa was clean both inside and out! Could easily have stayed a lot longer!!
Such a relaxing place!
Thank you Daniella for your lovely review. We are so pleased you could relax and enjoy the special space that The Sanctuary is. It’s a delight to host such appreciative guests. Thanks for leaving the property so clean and tidy.
We want to thank Karen and Rob!! They went beyond our expectations! This beautiful place looks like you are in Bali, so relaxing, peacful, clean, romantic.
We would recommend this place in a heart beat!! Thank you for making our stay so easy and unforgettable!!
Was a lovely little get away.
The place had a real relaxing ambiance. Location was only a short drive to local beaches and beautiful cafes. We were surprised with a beautiful fruit hamper which was so fresh. Hosts were very polite and accommodating. The place was very well equipt and clean. We really enjoyed our stay at The Sanctuary @ Bilgola
Pictures don’t do it justice - it really is a santuary
My jaw dropped just pulling into the driveway letting alone walking through the door - just simply A-mazing .
We aren’t the type to want to be on the beach or amongst people - more of a private and quiet getaway to do sweet nothings and that’s what we did.
‘The santuary @ Bilgola ‘ was next level - the owners attention to detail to us was that next step that many don’t take - from the personalised printed message, to setting the lighting, music and scent throughout the apartment before we arrived and the touches of a fruit / breakfast basket and frangipane’s throughout made it the whole experience.
We loved it so much that we went out on our first night and decided to order in the second purely because we wanted to spent the most time we could in the Santuary.
Thank you to Karen & Rob - these photos don’t do it justice. It really is what it says it a ‘a santuary’ - we will be back
Thank you so much for your glowing review. We so appreciate your comments as we really do care about our guests and hope that each can unwind and enjoy the special place that The Sanctuary is. Everyone leads such busy lives and it is so rewarding to be able to make your down time enjoyable and memorable.
Bali oasis on the tip of Sydney - what a gem!
Wow, what a great place for a romantic getaway. The Sanctuary lived up to its promise and more. This place is huge and tastefully decorated throughout. We loved the gardens and the spa, hope to come back again soon!
A peaceful getaway for my partner's 40th
What a beautiful, peaceful setting set behind a property in Bilgola. The gardens are just gorgeous, and the interior is like stepping into a Balinese villa. Thoughtful details like tranquil music playing, an incense burner alight and a welcome basket with fruit, croissants, jams and orange juice were provided along with a detailed folder of things to do / places to see / how to work the spa etc... We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay for my partner's 40th and didn't leave except to walk up the road for coffee and out to Jonah's for lunch. The bed was super comfy and there was foxtel and a multitude of DVDs to keep us entertained while we switched off and relaxed. It was particularly windy so we didn't make use of the spa but that looked lovely and well maintained. All my correspondence with Karen was positive and easy. She was super accommodating to make my preferred dates work. It was just what the doctor ordered and I would recommend it to anyone wanting an escape to a private, romantic place that is not too far from restaurants / shops / chemist etc...
