We stayed at Gembrook Cottages (Bluebell) over my birthday weekend. It was a very enjoyable stay - the hosts put in a lot of effort into hiding surprises around the place and making their guests' stay that little bit more special. The food provisions provided were above and beyond what was expected. I liked the quirky decor of the room...

This is our 4th stay I believe and it never fails to be the best relaxing romantic get away! We stayed in the bluebells cottage again which is just fantastic because we are a huge fan of the jacuzzi outside. The bed is very comfy, the shower isn't good when you are really tall as the shower head is fixed...

Stayed here for one night over the weekend with my husband. Everything was perfect and we loved the little chocolates and bottle of port on the table. The cabin also has a DVD player and heaps of DVDs to select from which is awesome if you want a night in. All the essentials for breakfast are provided in the fridge....

The ultimate romantic getaway nestled in the scenic town of Gembrook. It is private, peaceful, and well hidden from main roads. I walked into what I can only describe as an Arabian getaway, from the bed curtains to the trinkets and chests, this BnB has been very tastefully and cleverly designed. There is a spa built into the floor near...

We stayed in The Harem Suite, the attention to detail in creating not only a romantic but a fully functional suite is a credit to Tineke and Bernie. On arrival the fridge was fully stocked with bacon, eggs, mushrooms and orange juice with fresh bread ready for a hearty breakfast. Their was a beautiful little decanter with some port in...

Thank you Phil for writing such a nice review. I'm glad you both had a great time and you were a pleasure to host. The port is very popular with our guests as I'm often asked what brand it is and where I get it from. Maybe we'll see you again in the future. Tineke and Bernie

Wanted a quiet night away for a birthday celebration and this was definitely the perfect choice! Walked in to the cottage to find balloons, party hats and poppers, which was purely these guys going the extra mile to make our evening that little bit more special. So thoughtful. An absolutely lovely atmosphere. Would definitely return. Thanks for the great stay!

My wife and I spent a night at "The Harem" one of the cottages, our experience was fantastic. Everything was well taken care off. Lots of breakfast, plenty of wood provided, clean towels. Above all a big bath tub with a jacuzzi. Thanks to Gembrook cottages for an amazing experience and a hospitality on our wedding anniversary.
