I chose this beautiful venue for my daughter's first birthday. From the get go, Debbie was extremely helpful and was an amazing support throughout the party. The facilities are excellent both inside and out; including plenty of play equipment for the children. I highly recommend The Hide Out for any type of party!

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Debbie's Hide Out is the perfect haven for kids and party planners alike. Not only was the venue the object of much admiration from all the guests, but Debbie was also amazing in giving her time and expertise and energy to make the party a success. Debbie's creativity, her rapport with the kids and her generosity are some of the qualities that made the whole experience great. Thank you Debs. You are an extremely impressive and gifted person. This is the best place to throw a party by far!

We celebrated our daughter's 6th Halloween Birthday party at The Hide Out on 01 March. It was a rainy day and I was getting worried that the party was going to be disaster. For starters we got there late, 5 minutes before the party, together with our first guests. Debbie quickly helped us to set up in 10 minutes tops! Our guests were even raving about the lovely theme set-up. The party was a great success despite the pouring rain because of an indoor and outdoor option. The kids couldn’t resist the great play area and were soaking wet when they left. The adults were accommodated in the spacious entertainment area. My daughter and her friends had loads of fun!! Thank you so much Debbie for your assistance in setting up and packing up afterwards and for your wonderful personality. The Hide Out is such an awesome venue, run by an awesome Lady, I will recommend it anytime!!!

This is the third year running that we have had Colette's party at The Hideout and as always the venue, organisation and eye to detail exceeded expectations.
A beautiful, relaxing atmosphere for adults and a fun party venue for kids. The waterslide was a win and the treasure hunt with a twist (the kids has to search for the party food) was a brilliant idea.
All in all a wonderful afternoon.

We had our 5 yr old boy's Pirate Party at the Hide Out last Saturday and wow, the venue exceeded our expectations ! The parents loved the serenity of the place and the kids of course had a wonderful time doing the Treasure Hunt on the track/bushes. The setting is private which is perfect and there was lots of different playing equipment for the kids to enjoy. Debbie of course was, as I summed her up, "the Jack of all trades". She made sure everyone is happy, assisted me with everything and more, to make it easier for me to enjoy the party and manage to mingle with everyone. Thanks Debbie. I will definitely make use of your venue again !

We had a treasure hunt at the Hideout for my daughter's 7th birthday party. The venue was perfect for this as there are so many places to hide things with plenty of curious landmarks.
Debbie was a great help, and when threatened with rain, she had plenty of alternatives to keep the children busy had we not gone ahead with the treasure hunt. Everyone thought the venue was stunning! Thank you.

My daughters 5th bicycle birthday party was held at the hideout. The kids absolutely loved the sand bicycle track and all the other playground equipment, that kept them busy for 3 hrs. The venue is safe, secure & not shared which allowed us parents to relax and enjoy the afternoon. Debbie was an absolute professional from start to finish, was around just enough to be helpful without being obtrusive. This was money well worth spent!! Thanks for a great venue & your wonderful interactions Debbie.

I would say the best attribute of the hideout is the homely atmosphere. Having use of the bottom half of Debbie's home just adds that "something extra" and sets it apart from other venues. The patio, garden, pool and play area offered the perfect solution to accommodate a number of people. Debbie's hospitality made nothing too much trouble and the experience was fantastic! Highly recommend this venue.

On the 6th of August we held our son's 3rd birthday at The Hideout. This place is a jewel. I found the venue highly recommendable. The playground is well kept with tons of things to do ample space for kids to play; from the patio that houses loads of seating space you can see the playground clearly and keep track of children all ages. The venue is squeaky clean and Debbie is extremely helpful and hands on during the entire event in case needed.It is the ideal kiddies party venue and for adults too. All our guests commented on how beautiful the venue is. Debbie was very professional and helped with everything.One can see that she truly loves what she does. Thank you Debbie for a wonderful day.

I would readily recommend this venue to any of my family and friends. Thanks Debbie for an awesome day!

We chose to have a Bakers Party. I was most impressed with the room layout as well as all the Baking supplies that were arranged by Debbie.
The Children all had an incredible time between baking and playing in the outdoors, so much so, that not one child could stay awake beyond lunch. They all had a good afternoon nap and all the Moms that attended had a good rest too.
Thank you Debbie for the wonderful venue and we'll be sure to see you again!
