About Carl Harman

With my wife Fiona, we bought Willows in 2009 and worked tirelessly to make it one of the most sought after short-stay experiences in our beloved village. We have brought some 450 families to the area in those years and we love to hear some of the great memories they create while staying with us. In 2016 we added Haldegarte to our portfolio and market that in the same spirit that has brought success to Willows.

Carl Harman purchased this house in 2009

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

3 minutes walk to the river, 10 minutes walk to the bridge into town. Fabulous location and the house was perfect for 2 families. The house itself was well equipped and very clean. I would recommend it.

Cosy & Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a delightful three nights at Willows, especially enjoying wine and nibbles on the big deck at the back each evening - the views across the expansive garden with all the trees are magnificent. The living / kitchen area is cosy and comfortable. The three double bedrooms are a good size (great beds) and nicely appointed; the fourth is really only a child's room, yet one adult slept there. Adored the quirky features like the fishing rod lamp. We would most happily stay at Willows again.

Spacios, great for family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends have thoroughly enjoyed this property. Kids loved the massive backyard backing into the river where they could feed the ducks and throw rocks from the bridge! Well furnished, great details, 2 large living rooms with an entertaining terrace. Great home away from home. Thank you for having us!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely break at Willows on the Yarra River, the house was cosy, comfortable and had everything you needed for a short break. Our children loved the board games, the birds that came and visited us on the deck and the river walk at the bottom of the garden. Arriving to an already lit fire was also a really nice touch on a very cold day, much appreciated. Would definitely recommend this property to other families.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need in an accomdation to getaway and relax with a scenic view of the mountains. You can have scenic walk into town from the house which was a surprised bonus, through the California Redwoods.

Carl the owner was a pleasure to deal with.

We are on the quiet periphery 5 mins from the village of Warburton, a burgeoning tourist and sports destination being only a short drive from Melbourne and a verdant escape with wonderfully clear air and pristine waterways. The Yarra river is literally at the bottom of the garden.
