โ€œWell wasn’t this a delightful little find. An absolute secluded gem. The little cottage was in the midst of lush nature, with a small babbling brook near by that leads into an amazing waterfall. As I sat on the day bed with all the plush pillows, while my partner cooked an amazing pork belly on the weber, it was very relaxing to hear the flowing creek and birds chirping. The main bed was so comfortable, that we struggled to get up the next morning. From the mattress to the sheets to the pillow, I felt like I was in my own bed. The spa… OMG…. Given how secluded the cottage is, there was no better feeling then going for a dip after dinner while sipping on a lovely glass of red wine. With the water temperature sitting on 38 degrees, no matter how cold the evening was, it was devine. The thought of knowing that the log fire was crackling inside the cottage, also continued the cosy evening. Tony & Liane were delightful. Liane was fabulous with their warm welcome from Charlie (their gorgeous golden retriever) to lending me some eggs for breakfast (that I had forgotten), offering me amazing suggestion of a local coffee shop for the morning. But they also know how to leave you in private when you check into your cottage. This cottage oozes romance, relaxation, seclusion, peace and quiet and rejuvenation. If your looking just to get away, then this is the place for you.โ€

Just a magical place, so tranquil & special. Celebrated our 29th anniversary & will be back for our 30th, if not before. Thank you Liane & Tony Drummond for sharing your paradise and also our little surprise on our doorstep. Breakfast Hamper was amazing too.

We have searched but to no avail. We canโ€™t find anywhere else as wonderful as this place. A little piece of paradise; so we just keep coming back.

One word- Perfect! Everything we could have wanted or needed was provided, right down to the picnic rug. Spent an amazing afternoon turtle hunting but we could not find the platypus, but we will be back to try again. Thank you, Tony & Liane, for sharing your piece of paradise with us

Had a lovely time. Enjoyed time and good music at Flutterbies Cafe.  Saw some turtles on a rock in the stream. We would recommend ๐Ÿ™‚

Beautiful, relaxing, peaceful tranquil couple of days without our children. Couldn’t have found a better spot.  We feel completely revitalized and ready to face the world again. Loved the glow worms – worth the drive at night. We will be back ๐Ÿ™‚

Brad & Megan March 2017

Back again – a year later and it’s still as perfect as last time. A little private idyll, enjoyable in any season (even a heat-wave)! We’ve been lucky enough to stay in lots of lovely places over the years but this is the best!! Thanks Tony and Liane. x

Tom & Leigh February 2017

We had an incredible time here! It was our first weekend away together since having kids and this was the perfect place to spend it. We loved everything here. Thank you, we will be back!! xx

What a wonderful spot!! Relaxing, love all the “danglys” in the trees, trickling of water, the pinging of the seeds popping.  Most enjoyable couple of days. Thank you, will tell others looking for a beautiful spot to hideaway!

We awoke at 3.30am for a drive and a short walk the Pinnacle look out. The sun rose filling the valley with light, she read her a poem, tears streaming down our faces and asked her to marry.  She said yes!! We then danced, ate, drank and relaxed in this beautiful place.  Thank you Tony and Liane. We will be in touch.

We found Waterfall Hideout by accident, and we are so grateful that we did!  Wonderfully private with a personal waterfall….you can’t get any better than that. Absolutely Relaxing!

Fantastic place to get away and relax. Was nice to share our spa experience with a couple of frogs. The waterfall was relaxing and cool. Lovely area to explore. Mt Warning a must!

Brett & Casey June 2016

What a beautiful way to enjoy our honeymoon. We had such a relaxing week here.  Many experiences to be had. We got to see the platypus, turtles, fish, echidnas and more. A lovely piece of paradise. Thanks Tony and Liane. Pure bliss.

Ashleigh & Cliff June 2016

Our stay was wonderful, needed for nothing. Outside spa fantastic. No words can describe ‘The Hideaway’. Hard to leave.   The sound of the creek, the rain in the night and the swim in the creek.  We loved the privacy.  Great environment to experience our connection.

Brian & Deb May 2016

What a delicious night in a serene earth sanctuary.  The sound of the creek, the rain in the night and the swim in the creek.  We loved the privacy.  Great environment to experience our connection.

Maya & John April 2016

It’s our second visit here.  Absolutely worth it.  A beautiful place to relax and celebrate our 10 years together.  Tranquil surroundings, amazing spa amongst the scenic atmosphere of bird life and creek full of turtles.  Butโ€ฆ. Where’s the platypus? haha..  Have to come back again to find it.  Thanks for the memorable stay.

Matt & Michelle Mt Tamborine April 2016

The most beautiful and amazing place to relax.  We had so much fun exploring the local area.  It’s so scenic and gorgeous.  The spa is wonderful to relax with a drink in and Flutterbies Cafรฉ in Tyalgum is a MUST!  We enjoyed our stay, everything was perfect.

Hanna & Alex April 2016

Lovely and peaceful get away, was very hard to leave.  Hospitable and graceful owners, thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Linda & Hanock from Sydney April  2016

Tranquillity Plus!!  Such an amazing place to spend our 21st anniversary.  The cabin and all its surroundings are just beautiful.  The extent of the bird life we had never seen before was great.  It rained the whole week but it made sitting in the spa relaxing even more enjoyable.  Never want to leave the place, Quiet & Harm.

Bruce & Linda March 2016

Beautiful hidden paradise!!  Very relaxing and the perfect place to come for a much needed break.  Very worth the 8hr trip to get here.  Lovely accommodation & host. We shall be back.  Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

Sam & Kaitlin January 2016

This is our 3rd time here.  Always have a wonderful time.  As usual never want to go home back to reality.  See you next time. ๐Ÿ™‚

Our 2nd visit & just as good if not better than 1st (stay 4 days this time!!)  Great place to unwind & relax – love it both in winter & summer!

Absolutely amazing, couldn’t ask for a better spot to spend our anniversary, lovely facilities and surroundings, such a peaceful place.  Really enjoyed the environment.  Without a doubt we will be back and recommending to friends and family.  Thank you so much.

Osman & Bree Nov 2015

What special little part of the world, very peaceful.  We loved hoping into the spa several times throughout the stay.  Breakfast was lovely and the walk to the waterfall with  a glass of red in hand was priceless!  We’ll be back!  Many thanks!  ๐Ÿ™‚  โŠฑโœฟ โœฟโŠฐ

We are sad to be leaving.  Perfect place for our honeymoon, so romantic, peaceful and relaxing (everything we needed).  We will definitely be back and look forward to our next trip here for our anniversary.  Thank You ๐Ÿ™‚

Nathan & Samantha October 2015

Great place to kick back and relax. Very quiet and peaceful.  We both felt welcome and comfortable.  The bed was very comfy, perfect for that long needed sleep in.  We will be back and we would definitely recommend this place to our friends.  Thanx

Jason & Naomi October 2015

Somewhere between two hectic jobs, 10 beautiful grandchildren and two aging mums, we needed to find ‘us’.  Saying we spent most of the afternoons looking for an elusive platypus says it all.  Thank you for providing us with a beautiful place to find ‘us’ again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shane & Judy Oct 2015

Very relaxed place.  The spa was AMAZING (Especially after climbing Mt Warning).  Breakfast hampers were good and all other facilities were excellent especially the fire place.  Would come back for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚
