Words cannot do justice to a place like this. Granite wonderland meets classy accomodation. Bring a mountain bike if you have one, and a taste for the great outdoors.

Thank you, we are happy you enjoyed your stay. Greg had the vision and we've created it over time.

It's private and the view is beautiful. Happy with the amenities, except for the blankets and cushion covers which need to be washed. I would recommend to confirm prior to checking in, eventhough Wotif says otherwise. It wasn't a good feeling after a long drive and we didn't have the access code with limited phone reception.

Amazing country getaway

Couldn't ask for anything more - seclusion (but not to far from shops), fireplace, balcony to relax and amazing scenery everywhere you look. Cows greeting you in the morning and a coffee machine!

Gorgeous location far away from people and noise!

Pros: EVERYTHING. The serenity and location, the peace and quiet. Comfortable and clean and very thoughtfully equipped for maximum enjoyment!
Cons: Everything was great!
Location: The villa is located on a beautiful private property. Highly recommend a visit to SevernBrae estate at Severnlea, their chilli sauce is amazing!!!
Curlew Retreat is a beautiful 2 bedroom villa located on a beautiful large private property. The sound of the river flowing only 100 metres from the retreat was captivating and relaxing. It is a very comfortable villa and very well equipped for you to whip up a beautiful meal in the kitchen, or make use of the BBQ on the deck. If you're staying in the cooler months, like me, you may just find yourself drawn to baking an apple pie with the local produce, and every conceivable utensil is at your fingertips. If you are only planning a short stay and want to relax, make sure you plan ahead and get your supplies first to save having to drive into Stanthorpe. There is an espresso machine in the villa, ice maker and cocktail shaker, so if you plan in advance you can do as I did and knock up some Espresso Martinis to enjoy by the fire! You will also find a telescope on hand to explore the night sky from the deck. After settling in we took the opportunity to walk down to the river, it's a beautiful location to explore, and should you be visiting in during the summer you will not be able to stay out of the water, it's icy cold and refreshing! All in all, Curlew Retreat is a beautiful little slice of heaven, if heaven is being away from people and noise! Sadly we could only escape for two nights, and while two nights there was pure bliss, I wish we had booked longer. As we drove out the driveway on our departure we were already throwing around possible dates to return! Love it.
