Recently stay for a overnight visit. Welcomed with champagne and chocolates! Rooms have seclude balconies with garden and rainforest views and rooms also have log fires. Breakfast is included and it is only a short walk to the St. Bernard hotel for lunch or dinner. Certainly would make a return visit!

My husband & kids got me the 90mins pamper pack which consisted on massage, foot scrub & facial & then a relaxing cup of tea & kit Kat by the fire. It was fantastic. Will defiantly be back hopefully to have a child free weekend with my husband.

My husband and I just finished our honeymoon at the escarpment retreat. It was the most wonderful way to spend our honeymoon! The staff are wonderful, the rooms are amazing and the spa is just the best. We had an amazing time and cannot recommend the Escarpment Retreat highly enough.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights for our wedding anniversary and could not have been more happy with our time at Escarpment Retreat. Carolynne was a perfect host, always happy to help out in any way she could. We had over 700 mm of rain while we were there (thanks cyclone Debbie) so we were confined to the cabin...

We had a beautiful easter break in the Edge House at Escarpment Retreat. An absolutely stunning location with amazing views! The house feels grand and luxurious. It's was the perfect "cooler weather" getaway for our family. Most afternoons were spent on the deck with a wine and cheese platter while the little ones rode there trikes around the deck and...

Such a great two nights in the Edge house celebrating my birthday. Large house with huge deck overlooking the trees. Could see all the way to the coast! Friendly wildlife too who we shared dinner and breakfast with. Would highly recommend especially for a group but also as a quiet family getaway. Will definitely be back.

The accomodation was exactly as described & pictured via their website. We escaped for a winter getaway for 2 nights. So, so glad we chose the Escarpment. Quiet, romantic and extremely relaxing. This place isn't the cheapest, but you certainly get what you pay for. I won't go into too much detail as I won't want give anything away. The...

Was in a cabin functional and a bit dated. It was the chatter of the mothers dropping off children next to us and the traffic of the roundabout that made the place not very good for a couple. Breakfast arranged around staff rot as so bring food with you as no restaurant.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback about your stay last July. I am saddened to read your time in the villa was not the experience you had hoped for, as many of our guests thoroughly enjoy their stay with us. Breakfast at 8.30am to 9.30am usually suits early and late risers. For health...

Magical environment- beautifully laid out and relaxing - perfect for a weekend stay with a loved one. Popped next door to St bernards for lunch and went to the markets on Sunday. Fireplace was wonderful and cozy with a huge spa for two.
