Guest review: May 2016

Hi Deb/Jeanette,

I want to say a big thankyou for the instructions and information to get to the property. It was very helpful.

We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend, the property is very nice and the place is beautiful. Everyone in our family were very happy. We weren't so lucky to spot Koalas, but we found plenty of nice birds, including a Kookaburra and rosellas, all around the property.

Thanks again,

Esteban Guana

Guest review; January 2016

~We had a fantastic time Jeanette, please forward my thanks to the owners. The house was exceptionally well stocked. I baked a birthday cake when I arrived, whilst looking out over two koalas sitting directly outside the kitchen.

Absolutely amazing.

Best wishes,


Guest review; December 2015

~ To the Maples people,

Arriving after a stinking hot drive from Kiama on 20th December, it was like heaven to enter the cool spaciousness of your building. And then to enjoy the open space with its glorious trees.

The cooler weather that followed with the soft rainfall only enhanced the environment for us. A truly wonderful Christmas break. We all thank you for making it possible.

Most sincerely,

Frank Eggington

A beautifully secluded property, located on 5 acres of grounds and gardens, that invites you to relax, put your feet up and to eat, drink and enjoy your stay with either your romantic partner or with a great group of friends and family.

After visiting the area for 25 years we decided we just had to own a slice of paradise for ourselves. We have now owned “The Maples” for over 5 years and have lovingly restored the house, in line with our philosophy, that the sounds of fun and laughter make a house a home.

We wanted to create a home that felt both comfortable and luxurious to pamper our special friends and guests and we hope you will enjoy it as much as they do and really enjoy your stay.

With our compliments, you’ll find some bubbles in the fridge to gets the fun started plus some delicious fresh Mountain Lagoon fruit grown less than 1 klm away – enjoy!

Very comfortable and cosy

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely, relaxing weekend at the maples. There was plenty of room for two families and the fireplaces were a treat! The kids enjoyed playing in the gardens and we enjoyed a wine on the deck overlooking them. Maples is very comfortable and has everything that you need, including a well stocked kitchen! I would highly recommend for those looking to escape to a relaxing and beautiful setting.

Owner's Response: Thanks Shannon for your lovely review. We are pleased that both families enjoyed their time at The Maples. It is a great place for the children to run around and yes while the parents enjoy a glass of wine on the deck. It is a beautiful part of the mountains. Would welcome you and your family back anytime. Cheers The Booking Team at iRIS PROPERTY

We want to thank the owners for sharing their amazing space with us, we will be back fore sure!!!

A beautiful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Maples, nestled alongside Mountain Lagoon. Surrounded by beautiful gardens the house is tastefully furnished and the attention to detail is spot on. Every care has been taken to ensure guest needs are catered for - log fires, luxury bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms.

Perfect weather enabled us to enjoy the garden and walking trails in their spectacular autumn glory. I would highly recommend The Maples to anyone who is needing a peaceful and stylish getaway.

A place with Peace and Equanimity

  • 5 of 5

The property being far away from the busy Sydney suburbs with lush greenery as far as the eye could see, makes you regret living in highly populated areas. There are so many places in & outside the house where one could have a little "Me Time". Children can forget about their "Electronics" and enjoy living outside. We were lucky to see the Koala on the very first day. We all loved the place & will visit again.......
