Sharon and I have been visiting the Southern Highlands for almost 40 years, staying variously in Bowral, Sutton Forrest and Berrima. But now we’ve discovered the Hidden Door Cottage, we’ll never again stay anywhere else. Truly, this well-sited home-away-from-home is just perfect. It was a pleasure and privilege to stay there in late July 2023. - Alan & Sharon Hill, The Cottage

The Villa exceeded our expectations with its luxurious touches and convenient location. It was an easy walk to all the great shops and cafes in Bowral, with a gorgeous park just around the corner. The accommodation is cleverly designed, the decor is lovely, and the beds and linen are divine. Jo and Greg are superb hosts; they have meticulously thought about everything to create an atmosphere of luxury and comfort. Our dogs were welcome and loved lounging in front of the fire - it was the perfect place for us all to unwind. - Sara, The Villa

We had a fantastic stay at the cottage in Bowral. The accommodation was cosy, beautiful, and had everything we needed for an excellent stay. The location is perfect, only a short stroll away from the Main Street of Bowral with restaurants, shops etc. Jo and Greg were brilliant hosts and we highly recommend to anyone visiting Bowral and surrounds to stay here! - Ben, The Cottage

Jo and Greg are wonderful hosts. The Villa was beautifully adorned, cosy and within walking distance of Main Street. We felt right at home and appreciate Jo and Greg’s responsiveness and professionalism so much! The little things really made it so special, underfloor heating in the bathrooms, gorgeous gas fireplace and the most comfortable lounge! The selection of wine glasses was amazing for an AirBnB!! We will certainly be back when we are in Bowral! - Sophie, The Villa

A fabulous mini break in this delightful cottage. The home was beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean. We loved the location with great proximity to all the highlights of Bowral within walking distance and easy access to the rest of the southern highlands. I can highly recommend The Hidden Gem and can’t wait to come back again myself soon! - Deb, The Cottage

Beautiful relaxing few nights away from the city for a winter break. When we arrived the heating was on and the place was warm, cosy and so welcoming. Easy check in and check out. Exceptionally clean and well kitted out. Super comfy beds and everything we needed on hand, as well as a brilliant location. Thank you for a fabulous stay. Definitely recommend a stay in this beautiful home. - Helen, The Villa
