Plenty to do and see around and in the property. Make sure you leave a few hours to explore !

We had the very good fortune to find Bli Bli House Riverside Retreat online and stayed spontaneously overnight in July 2022. Wow !

What a lovely stay. A step back in time to enjoy all the fine touches. We really felt like we were in our own home. Delicious breakfast on... read more the front deck which literally is served on a silver platter.

Walking around the rooms freely - you’ll find a library - pool table and a media room with a projector. A candy trolly that’s always full. Many antiques and vintage paraphernalia throughout.

There are plenty of places to dine close buy - Teppanyaki was a favourite.
Meryl and Phil are incredibly Host.
Next time we’ll take a room on the riverside. Thank you for sharing your home. More
Bli Bli House is perfectly placed between the beach and the hinterland but that is not what makes it so special. It’s is the little things provided by the hosts... read more that make it a must. Strawberries and chocolate on arrival, a complimentary lolly and cake stand with tea and ground coffee, a cooked to order breakfast and more. The room with a four-poster bed as the focus was beautiful as was the entire house - tastefully decorated throughout and positioned on the riverbank.
Nothing more could be asked. We will go again and already have recommended it highly to friends and family.
As a Birthday treat for my husband's 70th I booked our stay and included the high tea. The accommodation, service, welcome and quality of food surpassed our expectations. We... read more have stayed at numerous B&B both in Australia and overseas and our experience at Bli Bli house ranks amongst the best. Such a lovely experience we have already booked again.
Chose this place for our anniversary, because it had a lovely victorian-esque theme that my partner loved. Definitely lived up to expectations, was quiet, private despite rooms being so close,... read more and service was excellent, and at our own volition. Was looking forward to in house dinner and breakfast, but dinner was off the menu due to health issues the lovely hostess had. The breakfast we ordered for the morning consisted of: crepes, fruit salad, bacon and fried tomatoes, yogurt, juice, pastries, tea and coffee. And was cooked and presented perfectly and delivered straight to our door. We ate out on the verandah overlooking the river, food was excellent and so was the view. Spent too much time in the spa, came out a little cooked, nothing a little rest on the comfy bed couldn't fix! Overall will definitely do again sooner rather than later, maybe even next anniversary. Posted to my google acct too.
