My partner and I only returned from here this afternoon and had the most wonderful weekend. The view is stunning, the service faultless and the atmosphere is just perfect. Looking for the opportunity to get away and reconnect we had such a lovely time relaxing and everything you could need or want is either there, or not too much trouble for the fabulous hosts. Chris and Col were so kind, warm and considerate and we would visit this oasis in the bush time and time again if we could. From the food, to the campfire, to the luxury tent, it was all amazing and I would reccomend a stay here over all other properties on the South Coast!
Our daughter stayed here a while back and loved it so much she treated us to a long weekend as a birthday surprise. Both my wife and I are establishing new businesses so the opportunity to step off the entrepreneurs roller-coaster for a few days was most welcome. And what a treat it was. The Escape is perfectly named as that's exactly what it feels like when you enter this oasis of calm and tranquility - you've quite literally escaped. This beautiful location is matched by the care and attention the proprietors show their guests. Col is a gifted self-taught Chef and every meal was a gastronomic delight. We loved walking through the forest, kayaking and swimming on the river and truly relaxing in what seemed like being a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of daily…
After looking for a long time for a Glamping experience, friends recommended "The Escape" and we were blown away with the whole experience. A 5 star weekend without the pretentious service. Colin, Lucille and the puppies have created a beautiful relaxed environment to completely make you feel like you are at an old friends house. A friend that makes you the MOST AMAZING FOOD EVER! Sit on the porch of your tent looking out at the view, try stand up paddle boarding, or chill out with a beer and some peanuts in the beautifully built main house. We are recommending "the escape' to everybody.
I recently surprised my partner for his 30th birthday and The Escape exceeded all of my expectations!! Colin and Lucille were the most gorgeous hosts, so thoughtful in every way. The food was outstanding every single meal. The view from the top tent was amazing looking over Nelligen river – we spent afternoons lazing out on the day bed, eating cheese and drinking wine. Colin packed us a picnic lunch one day and sent us on a hike to a beautiful fishing spot. I’m sure Colin organised the fish in the river as well as my partner managed to catch a decent sized Bass! After our rave reviews my parents spent last weekend down there and they loved it as much as we did!
All we can say is WOW! Colin, Lucille and Finn welcomed us into their home. The Escape really is something special, the accomodation is amazing, the food is just sensational but the service is what sets it apart. We can't recommend The Escape enough, if you want tranquility, relaxation and the most amazing food experience, this is where you need to be! We'll be back for sure.
