We had an amazing weekend at Jills Retreat. The place was very luxurious and was quite spacious for our group of 9 adults and 1 toddler. Thanks to Margie and Catherine for making the arrival and departure so easy which just added to our wonderfully relaxing weekend! We will definitely stay again at Jills Retreat.
A bunch of lovely but very busy ladies needed a relaxing weekend away and we got so much more then that when we stayed at Jill's retreat. Margie was the kindest and most patient of hosts who went above and beyond to ensure that we felt cared for and welcome in this beautiful home. It was all the little details that made it all the more special, such as providing lots of helpful information, actively sourcing great restaurants and organising someone to come for massages. All the ladies had such a wonderful time that they committed to making it a more regular weekend get together (which for a bunch of working mums is a miracle). Thanks Margie for everything. And of course we had the most wonderful nurturing masseuse, Wendy, who was an absolute angel of delight. Ahhh, life is good.
Perfect place to stay and will definitely love to stay again. Great setting, rooms, linen, amenities, communication. 10/10 Kind regards coco
The host was very thoughtful and helpful. The house was very well equipped and user friendly.
The area was close to Katoomba in a residential area with a huge garden. We visited in winter, I suspect the garden would be very pretty in spring
We rented out both upstairs and the "honeymoon" suite downstairs for the weekend while we were getting married in Katoomba.
Absolutely immaculate place and would recommend it to everyone. With a choice of 3 BBQs and a massive upstairs deck, how can you go wrong:)
