The Poolhouse is situated at the rear of an 1880s meticulously renovated Cottage called Heatherlie in the beautiful township of historic Maldon.Fenced on one side by a French lavender hedge and the other by a magnificent climbing white Wisteria and Virginia Creeper, The Poolhouse is an eclectic mix of Tuscan/French Provincial and Modern day Country. It has an eight metre high cathedral ceiling, bagged cement walls and its stunning centrepieces would be the open fireplace (Seasonal) and the amazingly beautiful French chandelier which had been sourced locally. The beautiful french doors framed by white Italian linen curtains lead either to the shimmering azure inground solar heated pool (pool is covered during cooler months) The best times to use the pool are mid Nov to the end of Feb depending on the weather.   (Pool Towels are provided).

Looking out the double French doors whilst snuggled under the covers at the expanse of iron rooftops and smokey chimneys on foggy winter mornings is enchanting.

Perfect getaway

We had a fantastic and romantic stay at the Poolhouse. The accomodation looks just like the pictures. It had everything you need while on holidays, along with the extra touches to complete your stay. The pool is the perfect place to relax and cool off during the hot Aussie Summer. Jamie was also very helpful and insightful on local recommendations. We highly recommend staying at the Poolhouse.

Beautiful, relaxing getaway!

We loved our long weekend stay at the Poolhouse! The pool was so inviting, I even got up early in the morning for a swim (very unlike me!). And the shower was amazing! It was the perfect location for a couple to relax, and getaway from life for the weekend. Maldon is a lovely, laid-back town, perfectly central to a range of surrounding towns and places to visit. We will definitely be back!

It's like coming home

This was the second time staying at the Poolhouse - and was as wonderful as the first. It's not just staying away, it becomes our wee home; from the wonderful comfy bed (waking to bird song) to the cosy relaxing lounge sipping the provided red wine alongside our own provided cheese kept in the provided fridge; all absolutely wonderful. Arrived again to Jamie's smile and warm welcome. This man is a gem; not only with his welcomes but his local knowledge; Thanks Jamie. Beautiful heart-relaxing views from every window. Again, sad to leave, but in the words of Arnie; we'll be back.

Perfect accommodation for a perfect stay

We have stayed twice at the Poolhouse this year and both occasions could not have been better. The accommodation is in beautiful, quiet and private surrounds and is in the perfect location to enjoy the pleasures of Maldon. The cottage is immaculate and well equipped for a self sufficient stay, or to use as a base as you explore the culinary delights of this beautiful town with everything in walking distance. You can also venture further afield to enjoy beautiful vineyards or visit the other quaint and beautiful towns that are close by. The mezzanine bedroom is very comfortable with a perfectly positioned window to ensure that you can wake to a stunning sunrise, and there are beautiful, sunny 'nooks' where you can relax with a book or a glass of wine if you just want to laze the day away. The fireplace is also there to cosy up to should the weather be chilly. To top it off, there are cold beers and a bottle of red, with snacks, awaiting you on arrival to help you settle in. There is nothing that you could want for while staying at the Poolhouse! We can't recommend it highly enough.

There is nothing about this property that will leave you wanting. The host is amazing. Perfection at it’s best. Very private. Absolutely above standard comfortable private accommodation. Beautifully clean cottage. Pristine clean solar heated swimming pool. Was just divine. Will be returning very soon.

We didn't want to leave

We've just got home after 3 nights at the pool house and after seeing the photos onscreen Kate's holding me back from grabbing the car keys and zooming off back in the direction of Maldon. Folks you won't have any trouble finding this place as Jamie met us the front and we just couldn't miss his huge welcoming smile. Everything is thought of, and provided in an elegant country fashion, soooo cosy, classically comfy and complete carefree. The owners provided more than you'd expect - tantalising treats to welcome, scrrrrrumptious posh towels to snuggle in after using the luxuriating toiletries, and a bed to dream in until the local birdlife awakes from the window. The owners are totally discrete but when you do bump into them (in the street in Maldon) they joyfully ensure you have all you need. And offer more. What a wonderful world, is the pool house. Plus - Jamie and Maldon Getaways get it ALL right, from booking to greeting to anything else. Very professional. Now.... where's those car keys again?......

Luxury and relaxation

The Poolhouse is just a beautiful place to stay. It is private and the space is immaculate with lots of luxurious personal touches. We very much enjoyed our stay and the beautiful town of Maldon. We even enjoyed a dip in the pool. We would highly recommend.

We loved this place, it was beautifully appointed quiet and peaceful, just what every couple needs. A short walk from the historic town.
