“5 Star all the way********”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

Great place for a holiday of whatever type you desire - the house is luxurious. We were 2 couples - lazing by the pool for some or laying around inside on magnificent lounges, reading, music,etc. One couple were cooks so they were cooking up a storm - couldn't believe the implements,dishes etc available. NIght time around the pool with the lights created a special mood - never wanted to go out.Would recommend it for groups - fun but so elegant. A "special"place - we will be back.

“Wonderful ambience, quiet location”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2013

From the moment you enter the front door you feel relaxed. Four good bedrooms that are well separated, large and comfortable living areas, great pool and outdoor area and a garden designed to ensure privacy. The decor and furnishings are comfortable and carefully chosen for the overall design, feel and practicality of a holiday rental. The owners obviously care about the amenity and the condition of the property. We stayed with a group of 6 people and it was perfect in terms of space and accommodation. It was amazing to walk through the front door and see the house open up before us through to the garden pool area. Location is convenient to Port and the hinterland and just near Sea Temple Golf Resort. Perfect for families or groups of friends / couples.

“Our favourite Queensland holiday destination”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2013

What amazing holidays we have had at Orchid Hill on two occasions now, one in 2011 and the second last year. Orchid Hills lends itself beautifully to both smaller more intimate or larger groups of family and friends. The house which is stunningly presented also caters for all your practical needs, so much so that should you choice you never need to leave the house other than to collect food and beverage supplies. The delightful pool and tranquil gardens make for thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We plan to visit Orchid Hill again later this year. Thank you Orchid Hill !
