Noonaweena is a wonderful relaxing escape for weekend for couples or groups. The accommodation is private and clean. Its a great place to just chill out or jump in the car and explore the Central Coast hinterland.
The property was amazing and was perfect for our large group. The scenery was gorgeous. The commerical kitchen made our life so much easier and to top it off the property manager rod was an absolute pleasure to deal with and made our stay so much better. Highly recommended to others and we will definitely be coming back
We found Noonaweena on hotels.com when looking for accommodation within close proximity to a family wedding being held close by. My brother and his friend are visiting from the USA for the event and we were looking for a villa that would ensure we were all together for a special family weekend. When we typed our numbers and dates into the hotels.com search engine, the Gymea House at Noonaweena popped up with 5 bedrooms for a discounted rate. I forwarded the link to my mum and brother in the USA and we agreed to book it in. This was in August 2019 for our event in May 2020. In January 2020, one week after the invitations have been received for the event, we receive an email from Rob Forsythe telling us that we have booked a single room in our villa for 6 adults and a child, and we will need to book the rest of the rooms at the same rate. I phone him immediately and he stands by his story - we have booked a single room in the Gymea House. Frustrated I email him our booking confirmation clearly showing that we have booked the entire house. He responds saying he has tried to do the same thing on the website and the rate he got was 5 times higher. Having worked in hotels I now realise that the property has either uploaded their information into the hotels.com website incorrectly when we booked OR he has had an increased demand for rooms from the wedding down the road and realises he can get a better rate. We have been emailing back and forth and he maintains that the error is ours and he will not honor our booking. The best he can offer is a rate that is 4 times higher than what we have booked, and that if we are not prepared to pay that he suggests we take up the free cancellation policy on the hotels.com website. Rod's attitude and appalling customer service will ensure that we let everyone we can know about our disgraceful experience with this property.…
I host regular retreats and wanted to find a new location and Noonaweena was suggested to me by a friend. From the initial walk through with Rodney to the last day of our retreat Noonaweena provided the perfect backdrop for us. Breathtaking views coupled with walking trails, pool, spa's and a commercial kitchen plus spacious and well-appointed bedrooms made it a perfect venue for us. We will definitely be back, in fact, we are finalising dates for our next retreat now. Noonaweena is true to the meaning of the word 'resting place in the bush'. We have rested and retreated and come away refreshed. Thank you, Rodney and Simone, for going above and beyond for us. You were a delight to work with.
We stayed at Treetops recently. I was able to use my wheelchair to navigate around the inside and around the entire verandah with ease. Needed to use my crutches to get down to the spa but this was still perfectly suited to my needs. Treetops was visually stunning. It was private, had wonderful use of natural light, and just so comfortable. The wifi is very fast (better than our 4G in other locations). Thanks to the manager for giving me detailed information about access to, and within, the suite that enabled me to make the decision about whether this would be an appropriate venue for me to stay in. Already planning our next trip back.
