Relaxing Week Away
The family had a great time at the ECO Olive Farm stay. Everyday we fed the Cows, Sheep, Ducks, Chickens, the Alpaca and Gary the Goose. The accommodation was a lovely three bedroom house with every thing you could need. There was a large games room with Foosball, Air Hockey and table tennis and even a cricket set that we used for a backyard game. We spent a lot of time playing in the pool. It was a very relaxing, very quite holiday.
Home away from home
Very tranquil, clean and affordable, the kids enjoyed themselves and so did the boss, very suitable for families that want privacy.
Very happy with the stay at Eco-Olive farm. The accommodation was fantastic, it had every thing and more than what we needed. Monica was a great host, she took us around the farm. Kids had great fun feeding animals. Would recommend to every one.
Beautiful Country Retreat
Our family of ten stayed for two nights and it we would have loved to have stayed longer. The property was clean and tidy and had the most homely cozy feel you could imagine.
There was a lovely fireplace which was well stocked with pre-chopped firewood. In addition the kitchen was well-stocked with all the cooking equipment / utensils you will need.
Monica was the most gracious host. She allowed our family complete privacy but was available on call whenever we needed anything.
Monica took our whole family to meet her farm animals , including cows, sheep, alpacas and ducks.
Monica also started the campfire for us so we could cook dinner under the stars.
The property is spacious and has magnificent views of the surrounding farmland.
I recommend EcoOlive Farmstay for everyone - whether it's a huge family holiday or a romantic retreat to get away from it all.
What I loved was it is only 2 1/2 hours from Sydney but you feel like you are in another world far far away from the city.
Monica is a knowledgable and warm host so book now.
I know my review sounds like an advertisement but it was an amazing holiday.
Thanks Monica - Andrew Wong.
Six of us stayed for band retreat and could not have done better. The double garage/ playroom was perfect, allowing us to set instruments, amps, PA and foldbacks. Monica, our host, even joined us for vocal backup. The house was perfect for us and the surrounding countryside wonderfully relaxing. It is also easy to see why it has received highly favourable reviews from family groups friends looking for a rural retreat within easy driving distance of Sydney. Highly recommended.
Very grateful for the wonderfully kind review. What a great bunch you were and I am so glad that the band felt relaxed and all your needs were met. It was my pleasure to screech into the microphone and play tambourine! I hope to host another future band getaway.
Great family holiday
We had a terrific 3 nights. Monica was incredibly helpful, always friendly and went out of her way to help. Our 5 kids (aged 12 to 4) all had a great time feeding chickens, ducks, sheep, cows and the favourite - alpacas. Nights were by the fire, days were in the bright sun. The kids loved the trampoline, swings and mud.
