Fantastic stay in a beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Four of us had a great time in this gorgeous place. The house is spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. Damien is a perfect host, friendly & helpful, but unobtrusive. He left us a magnificent basket of local produce, most generous. There are beautiful views from every room. The property is on acreage with very well maintained gardens & no other house in sight, so very private. We will certainly come again.

Awesome venue

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing holiday at Arinya. Damien has thought of absolutely everything. Our stay in his beautiful home couldn't be faulted in any way at all. From the welcoming warm fire on our arrival, the welcome gift basket and his friendly greeting, everything was just superb. The location, set amongst the trees with kangaroos nearby and beautiful birdsong make the location peaceful and restful. Can't wait to return.

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at Arinya Retreat. Damien had lit the fire for us so the place was warm and welcoming upon arrival. He left us plenty of fire wood to keep us going. He provided us with an assortment of local produce for our breakfast as well a bottle of wine and some cheese, pate and other delicious snacks. The home was clean and spacious and filled with natural light. We plan to return next year and take another family with us to fully utilise this large, beautiful space. Highly recommend this venue for a family weekend get-away.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Myself and seven mothers group friends staying here one night in July and we wish we could have stayed longer but despite this we had a completely needed and relaxed time. Damien accommodated an early check in (1pm) and on arrival he greeted us and we arrived to a beautiful warm home (love the log fire). There is quite honestly nothing to fault about this accommodation at all. All the beds were comfortable. Despite it being winter the sun was beautiful and if it wasn't for the bees liking our quince paste so much on the cheese platter (we brought) we would have enjoyed the beautiful view from outdoors. We utilised Damien's contacts and had three massage therapists come to Arinya and two of the girls reported having the best massages of their lives. We also utilised Daisy Dining also recommended by Damien and that also didn't disappoint. Being a little out of town in the middle of nowhere it is the ideal option for a yummy winter warming meal. I am already hoping to return with another group of friends again later in the year. Book it! you won't be disappointed.
