    My husband and I stayed here over the weekend while attending a show in Airlie. I wish I had of booked two nights!!! Check in was easy, and a lift up to our room in the golf buggy was fun! Some things to keep in mind if you are looking at staying here: Limited wifi. 1GB per day for use and no phone reception. Great if you want to switch off for a weekend!! Limited power. Aircon can only be on in either bedroom or lounge room, not both at the same time. Worked okay for us as there was a lovely breeze. Cooking facilities: there is a single hot plate, microwave/oven and heaps of kitchen utensils available. There is also a BBQ available for use in the pool area. Bore water: I didn't specifically confirm it is bore water but going by the pump at the entrance to the property, they use bore water. It has a very slight taste but nothing too bad. If you are fussy with your water, make sure you bring some bottles. The hot tub/bath is amazing. So nice to sit out on the patio at night under the lovely fairy lights and enjoy a beverage. The shower head is also spectacular. If I didn't feel so bad for using too much water I could have stayed in there all night! All in all, we both really enjoyed our time here. Hopefully something else brings us back to Airlie soon so we can come back!! Thank you host :)

    Seclude is aptly named. Peaceful, spotlessly clean with NO phone service. Will be back again and highly recommended.

    Yes! The perfect retreat!

    My husband and I absolutely loved this place. In the middle of a long trip around Australia to meet all his friends and family (I’m American) we stayed here as a break and chance to rejuvenate. The Acacia Villa is gorgeous, feels brand new, and has everything you’d need for a long weekend trip. We loved the gorgeous view, watching the birds, and relaxing in the outdoor bath. We brought most of our own food to cook, but did get one of the baskets delivered to us, which was fun and yummy. I only wish we’d had time to stay longer. We loved it. Highest recommendation.

    Hidden Gem

    Villa was spacious with everything we needed. Outdoor spa was amazing. Food hampers were delicious and just the right size. We took our own drinks, there was ice in the freezer and a full size fridge. View of the valley was beautiful with wildlife the only sound. We didn’t need to leave the villa for the whole 2 days. The only improvement I could suggest is a comfortable lounge on the deck (for reading or relaxing), the outdoor setting was a bit hard on the backside after a while. We had a very relaxing few days. Be aware that there is no phone reception and wifi, although available, is limited. Great if you really want to escape for a while. Fantastic hidden gem, we will be back.

    The retreat was surrounded in a forest environment as the name says and offered an opportunity to relax in a private setting with nature. The accommodation was fantastic and very clean with its own spa bath to finish each day. The pool was also very clean and over all a must do when going to Airlie Beach.

    The surroundings are beautiful. The owners Tony & Yvette were lovely and welcoming. The privacy that Seclude offers is unparalleled, it really is a retreat away from it all!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Thoroughly enjoyable

    Very nice, it is as stated very secluded and private, slight issue with hot tub which was quickly resolved. Only negative would be the WiFi limited usage which was frustrating especially as no mobile signal, but if you’re after seclusion then it possibly didn’t matter.
