Lovely little secret in Emerald

Lovely little secret in Emerald. Very pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail, the tasteful decor, the abundance of amenities and comforts. Would love to have Ferny Hill Retreat as our go to home away from home.

A great night by the fire (Airbnb Review)

Carmel’s place was a lovely little getaway for my partner and I. We enjoyed a night around the fire and taking in the gorgeous surroundings. We were also able to ride our bikes down to the little dam at the end of the street. The place was nice and clean with a spacious bath and a super comfy bed!

Didn't want to leave! (Booking.com Review)

We really enjoyed our stay at Ferny Hill Retreat. It is a beautiful location and wonderfully set up for everything we'd need for our stay. So nice being able to stay somewhere that had fresh fruit, bread, cereal, etc, breakfast was sorted and we didnt need to worry. The fully stocked kitchen meant we could also make dinner without buying oil or butter or sauce, or worry about not having the right pots, pans or utensils. My 3 year old daughter loved her "room" with the big sofa bed, TV, toys and games - she didnt want to leave!

Absolutely fabulous

Ferny Hill Retreat has an extremely kind, helpful host and who has anticipated your every need. The garden area is a delight and we enjoyed exploring all the nooks and crannies our favourite was the fairy garden and enjoyed sitting outside with a coffee. It is short scenic drives to various locations. We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thanks Carmel, you are a gem .

It was an absolute pleasure having you here. Thanks for the lovely review and I am so please you enjoyed your stay :)

WOW! (AirBNB Review)

Wow! Where do we start... Carmel’s little Hideaway in Emerald just completely exceeded our expectations. Carmel was attentive to our needs without being intrusive. The stay was a home away from home with every intricate detail nurtured and delivered in style and quality. The art decor was just gorgeous and tastefully executed throughout. The grounds were whimsical and beautifully landscaped, incredibly peaceful with an ambience that fit perfectly with the stunning surrounding Emerald backdrop. Our highlight was that Carmel had every little detail covered from beautiful breakfast supplies right down to mozzie spray. The local township is a two minute drive which included beautiful cafes and the best bakery in Australia that you just have to visit to believe. Carmel was a fantastic guide knowing when, how and what. This stay is an easy 10 out of 10 hands down !!! We can’t wait to return.
