About the property

. Nestled into the Araluen countryside this comfortable and spacious fully self contained cottage with its spectacular views is the ideal place to get away from it all without driving too far. Reverse cylcle air conditioning and a wood fire in winter give guests year round comfort. Guests can also have use of the propertys large saltwater swimming pool. They may also help themselves to as much fruit as they please. Conveniently situated minutes from two licenced resturants and Brackenridge tourist village. Tanah Retreat is a fully self contained home that sleeps up to four adults. Inhouse massages, facials and beauty treatments available in-house from .

The owners wish to advise guests that this is the real Australia and we have real wildlife coming onto the propery including kangaroos, blue tongues, geckos, marsupial mice and ducks. Guests staying more than two nights may or may not notice the reemergence of spider webs. Please take this as a positive sign that we do not spray poisons around the cottage in order to protect the wildlife, Eco system and of course your dear pets. Anyone who does not feel comfortable with these creatures should consider other accommodation.

This is affordable pet friendly accommodation where familys can come with their children and feel at home.The location is 5 star, the views are 5 star, the property is 5 star, however the cottage although fully self contained is spacious but probably about 3 star. If the accommodation were also 5star it would be $600 per night instead of $230. Furthermore over holiday periods like Christmas and New Year prices would be $1000 per night. We don't raise our prices during holidays and don't have hidden charges like cleaning, and charging for extra guests, babys cot, or pets. We hope to attract nature loving couples and families. Please do not plan to host large parties with the intention of inviting outside guests. Tanah retreat is designed for nature loving couples, families and pet lovers.

THE SPA. THe cottage has a new hot water system that is a tank and not instantaneous heating as we rely on gas bottles due to the lack of gas lines. In the colder months there may not be enough water to fill the spa so you may need to boil a couple of kettles to assist with the heating.

Kind regards

The place was as described in the advert. We had a lovely time looking at the wonderful views. The pool was lovely too wish we could of stayed longer to have another swim. Out dogs stayed for a night and it really nice to find somewhere accomodating for pets.

Perfect country weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! We wanted to escape for the weekend to a place with a view so we could unwind and so this cottage was perfect for our needs. Loved the day bed next to the windows with amazing views, great place for a good book. And outside, the table setting was perfect to sit back, relax and again, enjoy the views, I said to my hubby you could be mistaken for thinking you were in Italy with that view! And the supplies left for us, including homemade bread, were just perfect. As the description says, it is a little rustic, but to be honest, we love our weekend getaway stays that way, it felt very homely, peaceful and comfortable. We had complete privacy to escape the world which is exactly what we were after. Thankyou for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Beautiful scenery

  • 3 of 5

We had a relaxing stay enjoying the scenery. We appreciate that the essentials such as fresh bread, milk, butter, home made jam etc was provided however the accommodation is looking a bit tired and there were lots of cobwebs. One of our children had to sleep on the day bed as the bed mattress was very

uncomfortable. To our knowledge we were not emailed the address of our accommodation and the owners did not provide us alternate contact details while they was overseas. We had to ring Stayz customer service to get the address.

Owner's Response: 5 % of the population you cannot please no matter what you do. The property description Cleary states the accommodation is 3 star, if it were 5 star the cost would be $600 per night. It is the views and the location that attract our majority of return guests.
