Guest Comment 19-4-14 - Family stay with a pet

(review in guestbook from an actual tenant!)

The best holiday house we ever stayed in! A big thank you to the owners for sharing this lovely home and for all the thoughtful touches. They really have thought of everything: firewood and axes, torch, notepad and pens, candles heaps of music and DVDs. We had everything we needed and more. We had the most perfect Easter weather with warm sunny days and cool evenings which we loved relaxing around the fire + candles + enjoying each others company.

Truly a welcoming home, thank you!

Cosy, lovely place. Perfect for a relaxing weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of seven stay at Holly Lodge for the weekend. Everyone loved the place, especially the loft. The beds were comfy and the equipment/kitchenware was first rate too. Our group’s already talked about coming back some time down the road.

Perfect Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for a few friends to explore the local walks and places of interests. Nice and warm with the two fires and plenty of everything in the Lodge to make us comfortable - BBQ, DVDs, CDs, kitchen with all mod cons and two bathrooms - a great weekend get away.

cosy mountain hideaway

A very cosy and private mountain cottage! Lovely clean linen and everything needed for a nice get away. Internet was an issue, but apart from that it was wonderful.

Perfect weekend in the Blue Mountains

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door to when it was time to leave, we loved our stay at Holly Lodge. There was nothing we could have wanted that hadn't already been thought of by the incredibly considerate hosts. Both nights we stayed in, warm and cosy in front of the log fire. We can't wait to revisit in the future.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Holly Lodge - the house has everything you could possibly want and the location is perfect - close enough to all the Blue Mountains attractions but secluded enough to have privacy and peace. We'll be back!
