Lovely relaxing stay, due to the weather was unable to use the pool, which was a shame

Thank you, Anonymous for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we're sorry we couldn't have provided better weather for you but considering we've been in a drought and it hasn't rained for a very long time, the rain has been very welcome. Staying in a dome when it's raining it a unique experience in itself. We hope to see you again one day.

Beautiful Escape

Absolutely lovely experience. My partner and I spent the night in the view dome. Everything was set up beautifully and the view from the dome was just as spectacular as i had hoped. Will was extremely helpful and full of knowledge. Would definitely go back! Would love to live there, the feeling was so peaceful and calm. Great escape!!

Different and beautiful stay

Pros: Beautiful views and the domes were something different and exciting
Cons: The BBQ area was right at the front door of the reception which was also the residence of the owners. It felt like we were intruding a bit.
Location: Beautiful views, farms and countryside. The dam is close by and there are small towns and wineries to explore
Beautiful views, new and fun experience. It was nice and quiet and you could hear the sounds of nature. The domes were different and exciting, very well set up and clean. Beautiful part of the country

Thank you, Sarika for your wonderful review. I'm sorry you felt like you were intruding with the location of the shared BBQ area for the Kookaburra and Buddha domes. I can assure you it definitely isn't an intrusion and guests are left to dine in peace and quiet. Our residence is away from the reception area and the location of the BBQ area allows guests to still enjoy the views. We're glad you enjoyed the uniqueness of the domes and our beautiful views. It was a pleasure to meet you.

Bastion of Calm

This place is guaranteed to chill you out. Super friendly staff. Very nice "domes". I got a message after a full day of riding the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, and it was great, the therapist really knew what she was doing. I didn't try it but I think the yoga/mediation sessions would be pretty awesome in their main hall with great views of the lake.

5 out of 5
Pros: The view and the service, friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. Exactly what we needed.
Cons: The lack of a proper bar fridge, wasn't big enough for drinks.
Location: Away from it all
Facilities: Nice , fridge too small; Value: Affordable; Service: Go the extra mile; Cleanliness: Spotless; Call ahead before dining in Esk, they'll probably be shut, otherwise the pubs are friendly and good value.
