“Delightful diwali”

tripadvisor-rating-excellent Reviewed 24 December 2014

Sydney, Australia

We went to riverside for diwali this year and it was one of the best diwalis we’ve ever had.
Its impossible to speak about the place without gushing so here goes.
Fish the location : hidden amidst cheerful hills and a slender but playful stream, it takes a few days just to come to terms with the beauty and to believe one’s luck at being there.
The walk from the drop off point to the property itself is a gorgeous introduction to what lies ahead.
walking a trail and crossing a mountain stream( very easy and safe . We had a five year old who did it almost blindfolded 🙂 is just the amuse bouche of this superlative experience.

The property : we were expecting a basic and spartan lodging and would have been happy with it but Ratna and Manish have created a place which is classy and replete with anything you might want. From electric blankets to beautiful retro style fittings and a blazing fast wi fi -the place has it all.
The effort that must have gone into making the place caused me much wonder as I sat with my coffee looking at the waterfall that’s on the property.
I knew then as I know now, given half a chance id be back at the riverside, solo/friends /family.
Truly magical.
And thanks to ratna and manish chandra for building this property with such care and love and for sharing it with us city fatigued folk.:)

Stayed October 2014, travelled with family
