            1) Quiet, beautiful location, 2) Warm, welcoming staff (owners), 3) Comfortable room, bed and lots of space for a portacot for bub

            Aaronlee Retreat is a hidden gem. Located at the top of Mt Tamborine, it boasts beautiful views of the Gold Coast and is a short distance from Lahey's Lookout. The lush garden provides a large for BBQs, picnics and for kiddies to play. The pet ponies and alpaca are a real treat for children and the friendly staff (owners) make you feel right at home. Our room was clean, tidy and spacious providing plenty of room for our portacot and playmat for our 6 month old. We were only a short distance from the local cafes, shops, and attractions. Although we filled our short stay with lots of activities, we would have liked to stay longer to explore the retreat itself.

            Arrived on a wet afternoon (unusual) with limited visibility. Next day dawned bright and sunny and we could see from mount Tamborine all the way to Southport and Surfer's Paradise etc, stunning. Accommodation is a bit dated but clean and comfortable. Eggs, bacon etc in the fridge for a cook up. Flora and fauna just outside the door was amazing. "Retreat" sums it up, peaceful and relaxing, enjoyed our stay.

            We chose the Aaronlee as our base for our son's wedding over the weekend. It is in a beautiful location, with complete views to the west, south and east. We had a very warm welcome from Kirsten, and a great chat as we were leaving. We also met the hardworking Kevin, maintaining the grounds, and the friendly animals. Kirsten and Kevin and the staff are such warm and welcoming people! Our unit was spacious and well appointed, and the spa bath quite a treat. We cooked bacon and eggs on toast for a very special breakfast sitting in front of the view on a beautiful sunny morning. We can certainly imagine spending more time in such a beautiful place.

            We stayed only one night as we had some other plan but we would have like to stay longer. The Studio room was very confortable with a personal little touch that makes you feel welcome. Very clean with absolutly everything you can need. The view is great: mountain range and Surfers Paradise. Ideal situation to explore Tambourine Mountain. We did the Skywalk, the Glow worms cave and Winery and visited the lovely little shops in the Village. We will stay again.

            We arrived on Friday afternoon and were met by Ian. We booked three rooms and all were good sizes. The views from the retreat are what sold this place to us. Absolutely beautiful. Bacon and eggs were placed in the fridge for our breakfast but if I knew better next time I would take some fresh milk and juice. We look forward to going back.

My 2 year old daughter adored the horses and 'Patrick' the Alpaca and spent alot of time feeding him and following him around. Ian also pointed us to the secluded garden nursery cafe, what a hidden gem. Best Apple Pie ever. Will definitely be staying again and already recommended to friends in the area who will be visiting.

            Ideally located and comfortable rooms. Our stay was really ruined by a very simple request not being followed. Breakfast is left for you to prepare in your room. I specifically asked for no pork, ham, bacon or pig products. I was given Baked Beans with Ham Sauce for breakfast. Could not eat anything. No response to my emails and no way of rectifying their mistake. The office is unattended before checkout so there was no one to talk with. Very disappointed with the service. Spoilt our stay.

            Fantastic place to stay”

            What a fantastic home away from home. The staff are so helpful and accommodating and the rooms are beautifully clean and tidy. Beautiful views and ponies and animals. Loved it and definitely coming back.

            Memories are made here”

            We were given a beautiful cottage with a magnificent view and the bacon and eggs on arrival was a lovely surprise. A lovely pub meal down the road for dinner a refreshing run in the morning and the high ropes course only 20 mins away loved it!

            Further out of town than expected but looks great from the outside.”

            The place looks great from the outside and has great lawns and views. Did not see staff. Office closed with a note on door for me saying what unit. You don't sign in or out - just leave the key in the door and go (as long as you wash up or you will be charged $25). There was breakfast included in the price which was a big factor in deciding but we did not think this meant some eggs and bacon in the fridge along with a fry pan to cook it ourselves. When I booked the room for a super low price, I logged in to agoda after booking to see the description - no view. Thinking that was due to the price, I upgraded to a higher priced one thinking it would have a view. Instead this put us in a downstairs room with no view at all and heavy people above us that we heard all night as they walked around. My wife had trouble getting in to the shower as it was over the spa bath which was quite high. We have a spa at home so it was of no appeal for us. Maybe the first room without the spa at a lower price may have been better.
