“Getting to the house is really easy. Lewis provided us with extra directions which made it a quick and easy journey from Sydney. The house is VERY clean, large and really has everything you can ever need for a weekend away. I stayed at the house with with 19 friends and everyone was super impressed on arrival. Big dining area where you can all sit together and have dinner. Large couch area with a fire. Worth mentioning that the house was lovely warm without the fire being on which was ideal in the colder months. All the rooms are large with comfy mattresses, comfy pillows and fluffy towels 🙂 Toilets and kitchen are also super clean. The location is away from everything and at night it is completely silent (ideal). There is a pool with a cool seating area beside it and lovely grounds to go walking around. There is also a balcony that goes all around the house with big comfy bean bags and chairs 🙂 At night my group sat around the fire pit which was ideal! The roll out beds and the tents are just as comfy as the additional beds in the house. If you are looking for a spacious, clean house where you can relax and enjoy a bit of nature then this is the perfect choice :)”

“Yanada Retreat was a fantastic place to getaway with a few friends. We booked the entire place and were blown away by the serenity yanada presented. 10/10 would stay there again.”

I have just been to Yanada on the Hawkesbury River for a weekend retreat. Can I say I have never felt so overwhelmed by the standard of accommodation, the over indulgence, presentation and quality of food prepared by the owners, Lewis and Curt, leaves a 2 hat restaurant way out of contention.

Yanada is a beautiful and generous property and we had an amazing family time away. So much so that we hope to come back another weekend! You have certainly created something incredible.

I had a great time, it was very healing for me, beautiful place, space. I liked the way the food wasn’t ‘hard core vegetarian’.

We just wanted to extend our warmest thanks for allowing us to stay at Yanada. We all had a wonderful time and it was the perfect place for a group of old friends to spend some time together.

We will definitely spread the word about the tranquil surroundings and the wonderful retreat you have built. Our massages were also fantastic and we all felt very restored when we left on Sunday.

Beautiful location and grounds. the constant smells of cooking and incense was relaxing and comforting. The food was incredible! also the fact the guys made such an effort to support my dietary needs without a fuss was great and very appreciated.

This is a truly magnificent part of the world! I’ve not experienced such tranquility for such a long time! Congratulations guys!

– Tony, Sydney NSW

A beautiful space. Perfect for a large group to relax in. Huge kitchen and movie room with a wonderful verandha to relax on. Space to be together and enough space for some quiet time. Works brilliantly as a holiday home for friends but have also attended a yoga session that was excellent. The countryside is also wonderful – if you can tear yourself away from the house.

– Sara Davenport, Manchester UK

Idyllic peaceful surroundings. Tasteful & comfortable accommodation. Calm and welcoming energy, and most of all, amazing hospitality.

– Luke Jovanovich, Ultimo NSW

Well done Curt. Fantastic achievement in such a short period.

– Andrew Davenport, Bronte NSW

Yanada is the place to relax; it is perfect! Great location away from the hustle and bustle to total wind down, but not too far from city.

– Brad Stanton, Byron Bay NSW

Absolutely fantastic, guys. A credit to you.

– Mark Butler, Sydney NSW

Yanada is quickly becoming a favourite place for me to come and relax enjoy the beautiful restful area of St Albans, enjoy a gentle swim in the river and hear birdsong and appreciate the nature of the hidden valley. Great food and good company. The furnishings are quality and really comfortable and the owners take such good care good care you. A very special place indeed.
