Lovely bush settings, great breakfast, great host

Pros: The relaxed bush settings, the homemade communal breakfast and the warmth and friendliness of the hosts.
Location: Close to the Gold Coast and 1 hr to Brisbane. Canungra village is lovely.
We stayed for 5 nights up in the Gold Coast hinterland and loved the experience, waking up to the birds, the chickens, and the horse. Had a lovely homemade breakfast each morning made by Belinda the host with her homemade bread, butter, jam, and muffins. Absolutely delightful and we would stay again.

Deeply disappointed in the bookings systems that let us both down and I am so sorry you had this experience and totally understand your frustration. I would love to look after you with many bonuses if you returned! Hope you had a lovely new year anyway! Belinda

Old and dated. Not like pictures

Cons: Hard to find. No sign at front of driveway or property to identify it is a Retreat or B + B.
Disappointing. Property old, cluttered and dated. No breakfast appeared.

Rustic Charm

Pros: This is a B&B and we liked its rustic charm, with the animals, secluded in the bush.
We were warmly welcomed to Pearl of Contentment Retreat which is set in the bush at Canungra. Our room was light and comfortable. The retreat has pets - horse, cow, goat, sheep, chooks. We dined on the verandah looking out over the bush as the sun set. Our host provided very generous vegetarian meals - entree stuffed mushrooms, main meals lasagne and ravioli, dessert dark chocolate boat with berries on board with home-made ice-cream. We did not go to sleep hungry. This is a B&B so then had a lovely breakfast with freshly baked bread.

Stay was peaceful. Treatments were amazing. Treatment rooms should be a little more cozy comforting. Share bathroom for a retreat probably not ok. The decription of retreat should be more detailed. Signage at the front enterance should be bigger. Carparking facilities could be better and just general tidiness where construction is happening.

Thank you for your veiw and review... We are so deeply thrilled you found your stay to be Peaceful and amazing! We have since removated our treatment room and is more cozy and welcoming, you came in the first week of it being in its new home. Our pool is finally finished which is beautiful and the construction area is cleaned up. its a challege all accommodation places find when improving their property there will be construction sites, thats why i sent emails stating this to guests. Sorry you had to look at a pool construction site while you were here. Our Carpark is getting completed on the 16th of november 2016 so that will be much better. yyaay! I have a 900x400 sign out the front of the retreat to protect our guests from privacy, but in the future plan to install electric gates, intercome and with more prominant signage. i have the gates ready! Its very hard with expedia for descriptions as they dont give space for it... but on our website we have extencive descriptions. There are many accommodations with shared bathrooms including retreats... but i would love to and have plans to install ensuites into each room. the first one is to be installed in the next few months. I hope i answered and adressed all your conserns and I am pleased with all that you have metioned you still had a peaceful and amazing stay. i look forward to your return with all these great sugestions and changes made! We will always listen to our guests as its you that make our business what it is today and what it will be tomorrow! We will for ever be improving Pearl of Contentment Retreat as we are passionate and love what we do! I will you the very best ! Belinda Pearl
