The Bower at Broulee exceeded our expectations. We arrived there very late at night and the owners had put up signs to direct us to our Bowers. I thought that was extremely cute and sweet of them. When we arrived, I was surprised to see how spacious, clean and modern their bowers were. As we were here for Easter, they... More

We have stayed at the Bower before and loved their Bowers. This time we stayed in their new Airstream "Bambino". It was a wonderful glamping experience set in a picturesque rainforest adjoining a pond. I have always loved the look of Airstream trailers and staying in this one was very luxurious. It has an expression machine, including shower and toilet,... More

We've just had a lovely 3 day trip to the beautiful south coast and enjoyed a wonderful experience at The Bower. The accommodation was faultless and perfectly described on their website.

This is a fantastic place to stay if you are looking for a private, relaxing getaway. The bowers are beautifully kept, and have been modernised. They are also equipped with everything you could possibly need and more!

Hi Eva, Thanks for your review. It's great to hear that you found your getaway to be private and relaxing. That's exactly what we aim to enable.

When you read reviews of The Bower I'm sure you'll be thinking "can it really be so good?" - I knew after booking our two nights that the premium price had set an expectation and when we arrived any worry of staying in a humpy in the scrub was blown away.

Location is tranquil and surrounding wildlife is abundant. Noise can be heard from the road, but it is a very small discomfort compared to everything else going on. The bower has extra hidden comforts, which adds to the luxury. I cannot wait to revisit

The attention to detail at this place really amazed me. From the customised welcome sign on the driveway to the pre packed fireplace, and music playing as we walked through the door. We had an fabulous time. This is easily one of the best places I've ever stayed.
