This is our 12th stay at Half Moon. It's our Home away from Home! We have stayed at many cabin retreats over the years and rate this as number one.

My partner and I spent 2 nights here and had such a wonderful time. We could not believe how much effort had gone into every detail of this place. They think of everything! The view is breathtaking, the hamper they gave us was amazing, the outdoor fire and port was to die for. The place itself is great. We have... More

As a treat for my '70th' birthday, we booked Half Moon Hideway for the weekend. We both needed a break after a pretty rough year of operations, somewhere to just relax in peace & quiet. This place is just perfect, beautiful view of the Glasshouse Mountains & country side. I could move in permanently! The cottage is very tastefully decorated,... More

Wow, what an amazing view! Regardless of the weather, or the time of day, the view off the balcony towards the Glasshouse Mountains is amazing. Gillian and Julian have done a great job of setting this place up, and they accompany it with an extremely well-stocked welcome hamper and fridge, a DVD library (particularly good for kids of all ages),...

Words do not really do justice to just how wonderful the experience of Half Moon Hideaway is. There was not a need or a want that wasn’t catered for. The accommodation itself and the attention to detail were of premium quality. The feel more importantly was of instant peace and relaxation. The view and grounds were magnificent. You could not...

If you are looking for solitude and scenery then this the place! We can't say enough good things about this place. The cabin is situated a good distance from the the main house for privacy but close enough if assistance was needed. From the moment we arrived everything had been so thoughtfully and generously provided. We received a massive array... More

I've visited Half Moon Hideaway many times over the past recent years, with my daughters. Gillian is a most gracious, friendly host. The cottage is very luxurious and one of the nicest memories I have of checking in, is opening the doors to the beautiful scent of lillies, thoughtfully displayed in the bedroom and the beautiful gourmet gift basket.
