The Perfect Peaceful Getaway
I stayed in the Avalon River Retreat early April and could not have been more impressed with the experience or location. The hosts are fantastic and made me feel right at home. The location is surrounded by the farm animals, wallabies, and an array of native birds, with a sweeping view of the cozy valley below. This was an incredibly peaceful, comfortable, and beautiful place to wake up. I don't think I've ever slept better. Wonderful property to explore and appreciate the outdoors in the daylight hours, fantastic stars at night. I'm usually not one to visit the same place twice but I'm sure I'll do so here whenever I make it back to the area.
We loved having you and hope you will come back soon!
Peace, quiet and tranquility
We stayed at the cottage for 3 nights on the way home from Coffs Harbour to Sydney in early October. The cottage has superb views across a paddock to the river and is very comfortable for a couple. Note for self caterers, you'll be using the out door BBQ which has a burner for pots etc. The river walks are super and if you love animals you'll be right at home. Goldie their dog is super friendly. The property even boasts an extensive rain forrest walk which is lovely and a haven on hot days.
Incredibly Special Place
We stayed here during a recent period of bereavement. The property is a beautiful healing place (that you really don't want or need to leave) and Sophie and Ged were beyond wonderful, welcoming us as they did with open hearts and hearth.
Perfect quiete getaway even with children
We passed 3 really nice days with Sophie and Ged: floating on the river with the kids, pony riding for our daughter, the tour to see all the animals, enjoying our fresh breakfast and the tasty dinners prepared by Sophie - thanks again for being such good hosts.
And yes, the tree house was a lovely place to stay: nicely decorated, beautiful view, with always kangoeroes or other animals to spot.
Our top stay in Australië so far!
Exactly what we needed
Thank you Sophie, Ged and Ben for such a relaxing and welcoming stay on your property. The children loved all the animals, the river and the vast area to explore. I loved all the great food and relaxing in the peace and quiet that your property offered. Your hospitality was impeccable and the cottage was perfect for what we were looking for. We hope to see you again in the future.
Experience of a life time!
Best way to wind down 2016! Thank you, Ged and Sophie for this beautiful experience. It was love at first sight for me when I saw the tree up on the hill in front of the cabin! Love it. Love it!
Some first-evers for me were petting Angel, the beautiful moo, Firefly the alpaca is so friendly and Venus the horse. She will always be in my memory! Venus is such a doll. She is so beautiful. Only minutes into our meeting and I swear I saw a smile from her when I was petting her.
Sophie and Ged … you did a great job with your farm. I am so happy that I made the decision to have this experience with you.
I fully recommend it for everyone, young and old. You owe yourself this experience of a life time.
Get away from it all! Experience the feelings of endless space and the serenity of silence. 400 acres for you to explore or just retreat to. Our 5 star luxury cottage nurtures and heals you. Wander among our friendly herds of alpacas, cows, horses, pigs, sheep and chooks. Or not. The choice is yours.
