Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very special place that I would highly recommend for a couples secluded getaway or a catch up with friends. Peter & Kerry have thought of everything right down to ice in the fridge! Peaceful & private, the perfect place to recharge with nature all around you and within minutes to the beach. The Treehouses have it all......kitchenette, lush bathroom and a gorgeous bed with a stunning outlook to wake up too. Laurieton is close by for lunch or dinner. Can't wait to return and enjoy a winter break with the cosy fireplace and a glass of red !

Perfect place for a staycation or holiday to the area. Very clean, spacious & tranquil! Loved sitting by the fire place with a wine :) Could take kids for a nice family weekend too. Right by the water and access to swimming and kayaking. Also a great place to have a wedding!

The Treehouse Retreat was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had. It’s a hidden gem of the rainforest, with no noise other than the sounds of various birds and wildlife. Exactly what we were searching for, the hosts, their hospitality and their beautiful property exceeded our expectations and left us never wanting to leave. I cannot recommend this place more, a shame that the rating only goes to 5, as it deserves a 10. We’ll be back!

Peter and Kerry have worked long and hard to provide their guests with the perfect combination of comfort with a beautiful natural environment. In the long, cold, English winter the vision of spending a week at this wonderful location keeps us going! The welcome we receive is always lovely. We feel like members of the family, and this, I'm sure, is the same experience for all the guests who are fortunate enough to discover Diamons Waters. An easy drive from Sydney, it is an oasis of beauty and calm. If you love wild life, and in particular ornithology, this is definitely the place for you. Sitting with Peter, Kerry and their adorable dog, Bronte, every morning about 9 o'clock enjoying coffee and a chat to the backgound of lorikeets, mynahs, honeyeaters and whipbirds; it's a birders' paradise! There is a vast selection of local places of interest to visit and to savour the wonders of this part of New South Wales. A place to revive one's spirits. Thank you so much to you both.

The welcome you receive is the welcome you very much deserve. Fabulous to see you again and may the birds be with you! PS our wetland walkway and bird hide is 85% completed and the walkway should be finished next week, weather permitting. Might take a few more weeks to finish the bird hide but it will happen soon.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Treehouse. 3 nights away felt like we'd been relaxing for 3 weeks! Well thought out accommodation, super comfortable bed, and the most beautiful views out of every window. Peter and Kerry were wonderful to deal with before we arrived, and very helpful. We really enjoyed our chats with them over a morning coffee. Highly recommend staying here, whether its for a weekend or longer. The area around was a delight to explore, and Peter and Kerry had some fabulous suggestions of walks and places to visit. We look forward to returning one day!

From the moment we booked this holiday until the time we left this gorgeous location I have nothing but praise for the whole experience. Pete and Kerry could not be more welcoming and caring hosts. When we were booking the holiday they advised us how to get the best deal, and from then on were happy to answer all our questions, albeit from the other side of the world. We arrived, tired from a long journey from Sydney, to find Kerry waiting for us, literally with open arms! The location is idyllic and we settled in immediately into our beautifully appointed accommodation. Coffee with Pete and Kerry in the morning was always fun and a source of fascinating information about the locality. We made full use of their advice on trips and eating locations! The highlight of our week was an evening picnic on the completely deserted beach enjoying freshly caught and cooked crabs, washed down with chilled rose. What an occasion! (see photo). My wife and I have travelled widely over many years and this is one of our top locations. Thank you so much, Pete and Kerry for a superb holiday!

One of the best life decisions we have taken was to build the Treehouses and the most important benefit has been the wonderful people we meet. To have you stay at the Treehouses was truly a wonderful experience for us and we would love to catch up again either here or maybe next time we travel to the UK (fingers crossed) Thank you so much for taking the time to write up this wonderful and warm review. By the way, a pair of collared sparrowhawks moved in and built a nest in one of the gum trees near the walkway to the Treehouses. The nest is very high up and quite large albeit a bit messy looking with large sticks poking out. The sparrowhawk is terrorising the chooks (bantams), and no doubt some of the other small birds. The sparrowhawk is a spectacular looking bird but such a menace to the other little birds. I will post a photo on Facebook as soon as I can get a good one. It is very hard to get a good photo as they tend to fly off as soon as we get near.

My husband and I stayed at Peter and Kerry's treehouse resort for two nights over New Years 2019 as a stop on our honeymoon throughout Australia. Peter and Kerry are warm, hospitable, and friendly, and have built a wonderful, quaint, and incredible relaxing property in a beautiful spot. Our treehouse stay and our exploration of the gorgeous protected beaches, North Brother, and the town of Laurieton were definitely a highlight of our honeymoon. The area is impressively beautiful and quiet. We loved our stay in the well-appointed, modern treehouse -- the photos hardly do the space justice! The deck, the view, and the whole property feel tranquil and enchanted with unique wildlife and plants. I remember feeling truly lucky throughout our entire stay. We hope we have an opportunity to return someday! Thank you Peter & Kerry!

It is wonderful that the Treehouses were in some small way able to enhance this very special holiday occasion for you. This Christmas New Holiday period has been special for us too - with so many wonderful guests. We hope to see you again sometime.

Just spent a week in a beautiful part of the world in the Mid North Coast. Peter and Kerry have established two beautiful cabins in the treetops overlooking the mangroves, the river’s sparkling water shines though the trees in the sunlight and the Kookaburras have no hesitation in greeting you early in the morning. The cabins are very well appointed and comfortable with many little additions making it an ideal getaway, We spent a week here and wanted for nothing, Peter and Kerry are great hosts, giving advice on places to visit, beaches to explore and food to eat. The coffee made by Peter every morning, together with lovely conversation was a treat that could not be missed out... it could rival any coffee that Sydney or Melbourne has to offer! The beaches are lovely and despite the water being a tad chilly… the swimming was refreshing and great. The locals say the water is warmer in other months!! Laurieton is a quaint and buzzy town where everyone was helpful and friendly. Everything you need was in easy reach. We would love to come back. Thanks for a great week, Peter and Kerry!

Thank you for the wonderful review and the conversations every morning had me enthralled. I was a little bit sad that I had to travel away for the last two days of your stay. I was getting very used to the routine. The water has been cold this year, much colder than usual. We are told it is because of the persistent nor easterly winds driving currents up from the deep and onto the coast. Our beaches tend to warm up February to April, as the weather cools down a bit. It is hard to know the best time to visit but for swimming I would say March. For our Treehouse fires, winter of course. For the national park walks it is hard to beat wildflower season in Spring. Kerry and I are so pleased that you had a relaxing time.

Perfectly appointed treehouse retreats! The entire Camden Haven area is idyllic, and the treehouses are set amongst part of this pristine gem. Our stay was perfect for a romantic birthday getaway. We felt like we were nestled amongst our own little piece of paradise and were able to sit and listen to the birds on the back deck, while having a chilled glass of wine and a cheese platter - Perfect! Our beautiful hosts, Kerry and Peter, where so friendly and welcoming. We were greeted with Barista made coffee every morning and welcomed by Basil and Olive the goats, as well as Bronte the dog. The treehouse had everything in it that you could need. We loved the spacious bathroom with rainfall shower, as well as the very comfy bed. We will be raving about this stay to all our friends for a very long time!! Thank you Kerry and Peter.

HI guys, Thank you so much for your wonderful review of the Treehouses and for your warmth, humour and appreciation of what we are striving to achieve from the very first moment you stepped inside your Treehouse. It would be lovely to have you back sometime, perhaps when it is cool enough for the fires and a glass of red with a slow cooked lamb dish, and of course an in house massage or two! Have a great 2019! You were our 50th reviewer which we are quite excited about so if you decide to come again we will take 5% off the tariff.

Kerry and Peter have created a beautiful space and are warm hospitable hosts. From our warm welcome, to the scrumptious cup of coffee they made for us each morning they are just lovely. On arrival we felt immediately calmed and relaxed, coming from busy Sydney. Being raised amongst the trees brings a sense of calm, this is paired with a treehouse that is just chic and stylish. We soaked up the sounds of nature, watched birds visit us on our balcony, accessed the river to watch the sunset and enjoyed the gorgeous garden. You feel zen walking through the garden and trees, then across the way is the contrast of a beautiful beach to watch the waves. The accommodation was a home away from home, clean, modern and equipped with all you need with such attention to detail. We highly recommend this treehouse retreat. Thank you for having us :)
