At the and of our Australia trip we stayed 2 nights in the Treehouse. We wished we could stay longer. Kerry created her own paradise! Getting awake by the birds, big windows with looks around into the garden but besides that so much privacy, it seems you have your own forest. It is such al lovely calm spot, nearby the...

We had an incredible two night stop over here on our way north. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The owners Kerry and Peter have done a superb job- very rarely do you find such a combination of comfort, style, relaxation and eco friendliness. Kerry has designed the treehouses so that every window gives a relaxing green vista. We could...

The location suited us for a quick getaway with the toddler and baby. Loved the cabin, the bathroom impressed the most. The toddler loved meeting Jimmy the duck, the chicks, and the new addition of baby goats. The only downfall with the kitchenette was no microwave (as it saps energy). We were unlucky as the mozzies were out late this...

Fantastic to receive your review and it provides us the opportunity to better advise our prospective guests with small children about the absence of a microwave. As part of our Climate Action Business Accreditation we avoided the use of high end energy devices to ensure our solar farm could more than adequately meet our needs in all circumstances. Mossies are...

We loved our stay at the treehouse. The treehouse in itself is very luxurious, modern and spacious. The nursery, garden and area next to the river were best entertainment for our 2 children, so much to do on the property. Peter has so many great recommendations of what to do in a 10km radius. It suits small families or couple...

Thank you so much for the wonderful review of our property and it was great that you enjoyed both the Treehouses and the wonderful local area. We have recently adopted two darling miniature goats. Their names are Basil and Olive and along with Jimmy the Duck are providing even more entertainment for the children.

What a great moment in Australia. We were expecting a lot from this place and were not disappointed! The place is a little heaven in a great area. The little house is very nice, modern and has it all. We were hosted by a charming family of hosts and welcome to share their Christmas lunch together with the other travelers....

This has to be one of the most beautiful, tranquil and just down right relaxing places we have ever stayed. From the moment you enter the property down to the cabin is just beyond stunning! Waking up in amongst the trees, birds singing and the sun flowing through this super clean and comfortable cabin will defiantly be one to remember!...

Hidden behind a nursery on the banks of the Camden Haven River within 5km of Laurieton sits the Diamond Waters Treehouse Retreat. If you're lucky, the first contact you will have on arrival will be the resident nursery white duck, George, who has made it his business to greet all arrivals. The second contact will either be the owners (Kerry...

Ah .....I am sure that our duck is the real star of our property, and if anything his social behaviour has elevated over the past few months. We have also added Basil and Olive to our team. They are miniature goats and are just adorable. Thank you for taking so much time to review our property and we hope to...

Sublime. The stress dripped right off. A stunning Treehouse (one of two) in an amazingly gorgeous location. Oh the serenity...and so beautifully appointed, did not want to venture out! Sat by the blazing fire in the evening listening to the birds and wildlife. Perfect spot for pure relaxation.

We stayed at Diamond Waters Treehouse Retreat for one week after sailing up from Sydney in our sailing boat. Peter picked me up from the jetty in front of Laurieton RSL and whisked me off to the treehouse. I was delighted with our treehouse and after several days at sea it felt like the lap of luxury.

It was so nice of you to post such a great review. When building we had a lot of debate over the two shower and rainforest shower option, particularly as we are a 100% rainwater harvesting property. Winter time is also great with the fires in the lounge room and we would love to have you make a return visit...
