5/5 Excellent

Beautiful Spot`
We had a lovely time relaxing (especially in the spa pool) and exploring the farm. The kids really enjoyed all the animals. Would love to come back and see more. Thanks!

5/5 Excellent

Simply brilliant!
From the moment of arrival, We appreciated the relaxed and super friendly atmosphere. We could not of been more warmly greeted and made to feel welcome. It was a rainy night, and the accommodation was toasty and warm, the views were outstanding, and the hot tub was a perfect treat!! The little kitchen area had more than we needed! Super clean and contemporary. With two kids it was perfect having them in the bunk room next-door. The larger room had heaps of space for us to hang out together. Being on a real working farm was super interesting for the kids! Our hosts could not have been more gracious. We stayed the night before the Timber Trail, so it was a great start to our adventure. We loved it and highly recommend!!

on top of the world
Amazing view with great friendly hosts.

5/5 Excellent

Unbelievable views
This is a unique holiday home with absolutely amazing views. Janet and Mike are extremely welcoming and helpful hosts Fabulous spa to relax in while enjoying the views. Unfortunately we only had one night due to time restrictions, but would have loved more time to roam the fields and enjoy the serenity of this unbelievable location. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise Janet and Mike

4/5 Good

The views are breathtaking!
Outstanding! You will feel like you are standing on top of the world. However, to do so, you will have to drive up a 7 km one lane gravel road and then an extremely steep driveway. An older van or car may have problems with this. The hosts are friendly and outgoing. There is an outdoor kitchen (located in the carport) with cooking facilities, a private toilet and hot shower (located in a separate building very close to the room) - and even a spa to relax in after cycling the Timber Trail. There are many tables and chairs outside so you can take in the view. And there is even internet and tv! Keep in mind this is a farm with many working dogs, so if you are a light sleeper, the night time barking may keep you awake. (When we were there, the hosts were looking after their neighbour's dogs who barked during both nights. Janet mentioned their own dogs don't bark like these ones did.)
