My girlfriend and I stayed at Michael and Alaine's property for a long-weekend getaway from Sydney. It was a truly wonderful escape. Michael and Alaine were lovely hosts, and the entire process was seamless from arranging check-in to saying our goodbyes. We very much appreciated the little touches - the candles and fresh plants left in each room of the studio, for example, and the electric blankets and complimentary teas/coffee/cookies. The outdoor bath (and firepit) was, of course, a major drawcard, but the indoor bath is also a lovely place to sit and read (especially by candlelight). Bailey is a delightful and friendly dog - you can tell she was the life of the party in her younger years. In terms of local attractions, we would highly recommend the Drawing Room Rocks Walking Track (just outside of Berry, about two, two-and-a-half hours return, quite steep). The views from the top are well-worth the effort. We would also recommend the Cambewarra Lookout and Two Figs Winery. I cannot recommend Bilberry on Edwards enough to future guests.

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend away at Michael and Alaine's Studio. The studio was exceptionally clean, spacious and included all the little luxuries needed for a comfortable stay. Communication before and during the stay was first rate and we were blown away by Michael and Alaine's hospitality and attention to detail to ensure we had a pleasant night's stay. Michael and Alaine are wonderful hosts. We wouldn't hesitate to come back in the future.

We came for a weekend away at Michael and Alaine's studio and we were blown away by their hospitality and friendliness. The studio was in pristine condition with great features such as the heated bathroom floors and electric blankets which were very appreciated on those cold winter mornings. They had fabulous views off the verandah, perfect for a morning coffee looking over the cows in a nearby field. Michael and Alaine were the perfect hosts and we could not recommend this place enough!

Michael & Alaines place is everything you are expecting and then more. This is not your standard check in check out accommodation. Bilberry on Edwards is a home away from home with 6 star hospitality from the hosts. Michael & Alaine were there to greet us and run through everything with us making sure we were making the most of our stay and had great tips and suggestions and nothing was too much trouble. For future guests we definitely recommend the Two Figs Winery of an afternoon & the Cafe at Cambewarra Mountain Lookout for breakfast or Lunch. A coffee on the deck in the morning sun is an absolute must. Clean, friendly, picturesque and everything we could have hoped for and more. Will definitely be back!!!

A quiet and relaxed location, ideal for a weekend away. We enjoyed the stay very much, the studio apartment is superb. It was great to get away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD, the weekend just went far too quick! Until next time. Thanks to you both.

We loved our visit to Bilberry! Wonderful hosts, wonderful studio and amazing view... the studio was large, with everything you could need. Bonus was a huge new bathroom with large bath (with included bath salts) and outdoor bath! We had a very relaxing weekend away exploring the local area (Berry, Cambewarra Lookout, Fitzroy Falls, plenty of south coast beaches surrounding) and coming back to the studio with to veg out on the couch with local produce and watch some tv. Only 2.5 hrs drive from Canberra.

In our past lives we operated our own Design & Construction business. We are now semi-retired having passed the business onto our son ... still offering assistance from time to time.

Now after having operated on Sydney's northern beaches successfully for 3 years Bilberry our "short stay" accommodation is now open for business just south of Berry.

We also offer 2 approved camping sites.

I am an avid gardener ... Alaine loves the ride on mower. In time we will create a 2.5 acre garden.
