We received a gift voucher for dinner from a relative and we decided to book an overnight stay to celebrate a birthday. We loved it. It is secluded and peaceful. Not far from the beach, bush trails or lookouts. The location itself provides some nice views of the ocean. We were in the Ocean Room and loved it. From the...

If i had to summarize the review in 1 word- Stunning. Sonya and Karen went to great lengths in order to make the venue perfect for our Hindu ceremony. All guests enjoyed the spectacular view from the restaurant. The food was healthy and loved by one and all. The wedding ceremony went ahead with no hassles and Karen, Sonya kept...

The moment we came to the entry gates of Tumbling Waters Retreat, we knew this was a special spot. This is the perfect secluded, private getaway we were hoping for, as we opened the door to our upgraded (Thank you Sonja!) Premium Ocean view suite, we had a fantastic view across Stanwell Park and the Ocean. The set menu for...

Last year we stayed at Tumbling Waters to celebrate our anniversary and a birthday. We loved it so much we decided to come back, this time bringing two other couples with us. The luxurious rooms and beautiful surrounds make this place worth going to anyway, but when you add in the attention to detail and attentiveness of Sonja and her...

We stayed at Tumbling Waters for three nights and found it to be incredibly relaxing. Instructions emailed by the owners were comprehensive and no trouble with self check-in. The retreat is an excellent location to Sydney/Wollongong and lots of local amenities. Our room was huge and comfortable. There were bugs and some spiderwebs in places that there probably shouldn't be...

This was the perfect place for us to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our suite (no. 8) was on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the pool and then over Stanwell Park. It had a very private outlook with no other rooms facing our window. The room was very nicely furnished, intimate and serene. The sparking wine and chocolate were appreciated....

This is a lovely comfortable lodge in a beautiful natural setting, lush with wildlife. The owners are charming and hands on. Nothing is too much trouble. Not luxury really, but something else just as lovely, and perhaps more rare - genuine.

I had the privilege of having my wedding here. It is the perfect place for an intimate wedding where the wedding can be about the couple and no one else. Sonja and Karen were so accommodating leading up to the wedding and on the day and the Chef...well, i say no more. I don't like chocolate cake but I do...

What a lovely surprise to find this secluded place, but not too far from home. Dinner at the Restaurant - Dining on the Edge was perfect. Views over the ocean, quiet, tranquil, with couples enjoying the gourmet food and wine and each other. The service was outstanding. The Annexe accommodation was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. Next time...

After a very difficult year, I was looking for a couple of days of peace and tranquility, and I chose Tumbling Waters Retreat because it had a beautiful view of the water. If you find water therapeutic, the Bathhouse is ideal. It is situated next to a pool and it has a private steam room and spa. Going from the...
