Very helpful and friendly hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Staying on the property is perfect in all seasons- fire place when it’s cold or outdoor swimming pool when it’s hot. We stayed with kids and they loved it, too.

Beautiful rooms and the common area was both beautiful and functional. Spent a lovely afternoon in front of the wood fire watching the AFL grand final on a large screen TV and just enjoying not doing anything in the peace and quiet of what is Araluen Boutique Accommodation. They also provide all that is required for your breakfast, which is a lovely touch. We felt as though nothing was too much to ask as our hosts were available and eager to assist to make our weekend perfect.
