Having stayed at Araluen Park cottages a couple of times, in both Lilly Pilly and Boobialla cottages (and having had a sneek peek at Lomandra cottage too) it is without reservation that I offer my highest recommendations of this most exquisite accommodation.
The situation of the cottages capitalises on nature's best offerings with views of rainforest gullies full of wildlife during the day and on clear nights you can enjoy breathtaking views of the stars unspoiled by light pollution.
It is so apparent that each cottage has been thoughtfully decorated by the owners, each one distinctive, homely and elegant. Painted ceiling roses and architraves, home-made leadlight windows, ornate light fittings, and delicately restored antique furniture. The eco-friendly living at Araluen Park was made easy with such luxurious accommodation.
We have enjoyed our visits in both winter and summer months and while we loved the novelty and warmth of a real wood fire to snuggle up to in winter, the shade of the verandahs kept the cottages cool in summer.
The owners were friendly and yet discreet. On both occassions Araluen Park has been the most romantic and tranquil escapes we've ever enjoyed.
