Q. What’s the difference between the Satin (aka Private) Spa Bower, the Double King Bedroom Bower and the Premium Spa Bower ?

A. The details of each type of Bower we offer are as below:

1.Premium Spa Bower, which has a deep double spa, log fire and king size bed (such as flat screen TV mounted on a swivelling wall mount to allow viewing from lounge or bedroom, reverse cycle air con, separate double shower from the spa & piped music to the spa room, etc.) The king beds in the Premium Bowers are a pillow top’ type and some guests find they are a little soft.

2. Re-furbished Satin Private Spa Bower has the same deep double spa, log fire and king size bed as before, but with the addition of under-floor heating in the bathroom and loo, as well as a separate shower recess with Italian stone tiles alongside the double spa bath. We’ve also installed reverse cycle air con & piped music to the spa room. The kitchen has also been completely updated with new fixtures and appliances. These king beds are a firmer type than those in the Premium Bower [above] and some guests prefer that.

3. Double King bedroom Bower is essentially the same as a re-furbiished Satin Private Spa Bower except that it has a second king bedroom with a king size bed which can be split into to 2 x single beds, if required.

If a spa bath isn’t on your list of “must haves”, the Bambino also offers exceptional privacy and luxury in a smaller space, but with a great outdoor area for relaxing in the sun or under the stars at night.

Are there many 4wd Tracks and Trails near The Bower ?


According to our local eco-guide, “Some of the nicest forest driving can be found not far from the Bower in an area called the Deua River National Park – the park consists of fire trails and creek crossings. I would suggest you check out Diamond Creek Falls and Donalds Creek Gorge, [both will show up on a google search].

The other pla4wd Bowerce is the Tuross River Valley, head south from the Bower to the town of Bodalla and then turn right towards the town of Eurobodalla, here you will find a lovely valley with river crossings and a famous waterfall called Tuross Falls.

Do you have Pay TV ?

Do you have Pay TV ?

No we don’t have Pay TV in your Bower, but it is available at our local Tomakin Sports & Social club, if you wish to watch a special event or your favorite footy game.

Do you have Free WiFi access ?

Yes, [in case you need it] we have WiFi in the office [and we’ve installed an omni-directional WIFI aerial to transmit broadband to/from the Spa Bowers]

Full Disclosure: The WiFi is dependent on a slow ADSL connection and the signal to your accommodation is susceptible to the many trees surrounding each of our buildings.We do NOT want to cut down any trees to rectify this !

We DO however, have good mobile phone signal with both Optus & Telstra if you need to set up a hotspot.

If you have any difficulties, please contact us so we can assist with Plan B.


Do you have TV & Videos ?

Your Bower has free to air TV [ABC, WIN, Prime, Ten & SBS] available [plus a DVD & CD player].

VHS video is also available [to re-live that wedding video] by advance request. Please email us prior to your arrival so we can have it set up in your Bower for you.

What cooking facilities will I have in my Bower ?

What cooking facilities will I have in my Bower ?

Each Bower is designed to be completely self contained with its own private kitchen, equipped with refrigerator, stove, oven, microwave and dishwasher plus a BBQ on the timber deck. Therefore you’re welcome to self cater, plus we can alsromantic-getaways-ultimate-private-bower-launch (37)-1400o order in a range of ‘ready to cook’ BBQ hampers, as an additional option.

We also offer a selection of romance packages and picnic hampers, should you prefer. The ‘bowers’ are designed with a full kitchen so guests can self cater … the hamper options are just an extra service that some people [who don’t want to or can’t cook] like to take advantage of.

If you’re pressed for time, there’s an excellent IGA with quality meat and local produce (plus easy parking etc.) about 2kms away from us at Tomakin.

Do you cater for guest’s pets ?



The Bower is designated a ‘wildlife refuge’ and our management plan specifies that we cannot accept guests pets on the property.

However, as animal lovers ourselves, we can recommend some excellent local pet boarding houses and even pet friendly accommodation that may be better suited to you and your best friend[s].
