Villa della Rosa is a charming 4.5 star Bed and Breakfast up on the top of gorgeous Mount Tamborine. Situated at 5 Platt Place, North Tamborine, between the Gold Coast and Brisbane in Queensland Australia, allowing easy access to explore the beautiful sights and attractions of southeast Qld. It is the perfect spot for a romantic weekend getaway.
Four years ago Greg and I spent our wedding night at the Villa della Rosa B&B and now have returned to celebrate four years of marriage. The night before our wedding I stayed at this delightful B&B with my bridesmaid. We enjoyed a delicious 3-course dinner and a good night’s sleep. Then we woke up early for our morning wedding at the Pavilion Gardens, Mt Tamborine. After our wedding ceremony and reception we returned in the afternoon to celebrate our wedding night. We again ate a tantalizing meal for dinner and then a tasty, 4-course deluxe breakfast in the morning.
We were so excited to be able to return to where our married life began. We arrived around mid afternoon, checked in and then enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in the garden and watched a DVD in our room. There is even a huge DVD library in the living room that all guests are able to freely use during their stay.
Villa della Rosa has three charming rooms for guests to enjoy. These rooms are the Roman room, Venetian room and the Florentine room. Each room is unique and elegantly decorated and furnished with special touches of Tuscany throughout.
Four years ago we stayed in the Roman suite and had a lovely wedding night. We were able to light the candles and enjoy a candlelit soak in the spacious whirlpool hot tub.
For our fourth wedding anniversary celebration we stayed in the Venetian suite. This stylish suite is slightly smaller than the Roman and Florentine suites, but is still elegantly appointed with authentic Italian decor. There is a two-person Jacuzzi whirlpool bathtub fully surrounded by exquisite tiles and a column on either side of the tub.
The separate ensuite bathroom is tiled with white marble and has a spacious walk-in, glass enclosed shower. The oversized shower comes complete with a six-jet shower module and two showerheads for a relaxing shower and massage.
Outside is a quaint garden where you can sit for a quality conversation and perhaps drink a cuppa or glass of wine. The insects and birds are gently singing and you may even spot a native Australian bush turkey or two wandering past.
We were glad for this opportunity to return to the place where we spent our first night as husband and wife. (In fact, we were the very first wedding couple to stay at the Villa della Rosa Bed and Breakfast and have our photo on the villa’s website.) It is our aim to continue to return in future years for more romantic weekend getaways up on Mt Tamborine.
We highly recommend the Villa della Rosa B&B to other couples that want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday work and life to somewhere you will be pampered and able enjoy the quiet, tranquil atmosphere that Mt Tamborine offers.
