Our 2nd visit to Melawondi was just as peaceful and perfect as our first visit. 3 nights of stressfree indulgence - just perfect for our 12th wedding anniversary. Thanks again Tanya, Tony and Emma for the beautiful breakfast provisions, sweet treats and personal touches. Highly recommended doesn't explain just how special Melawondi is!!!

Melawondi Spring Retreat was a great getaway from the city. The accommodation is wonderful and peacefully located. The champagne and nibbles were a great way to start our evening away. The clear night provided a clear sky filled with stars and the fire created a great ambience. The fresh produce for breakfast is also a great touch, not to mention watching the kangaroo's in the paddock - thank you Tanya and Tony for sharing your space!

Room Tip: The Luxury Studio accommodates only 2 people so peace and tranquility guaranteed!

First class accommodation in a beautiful and secluded setting.
The little things like the personalised hand written welcome note , the cheese platter and the home made cake all helped make the weekend very special.
Breakfast was fantastic and enjoyed on the deck with the birds for compan.
Would recommend Melawondi to couples wanting to get away from everyday life.

Our 2 night stay at Melawondi Spring Retreat this week was absolutely perfect.

Every last detail has been thought of from beautiful breakfast provisions in the morning, freshly baked biscuits, wine and cheese plate in your room when you arrive and beautiful soft bath robes and towels.
The room was spotless and beautifully appointed with a USB of beautiful music to listen to and a pile of the latest home decorating magazines to pour over all provided.

My favorite thing about Melawondi and the reason why we chose this destination over others was the secluded location. This cabin provides absolute privacy from the world and Tanya and Tony (your hosts) are absolutely discreet.

I could rant and rave on all day but just try it for yourself, you won't be disappointed!!!

Room Tip: The luxury studio should be your only choice.

Just spent our 25th wedding anniversary at Melawondi for two nights, and can only concur with previous reviewers: this place is very special if privacy, comfort and quality are important to you.

The attention to detail of the owners is to be commended, everything is just right. Running this cottage is obviously more than just a business for Tanya, it is a labour of love.

We will certainly remember our "25th" for all the right reasons. Congratulations on creating a very special experience.
