Great service from Robert.
We enjoyed staying there. Kids had great time. The house was big and all the bedrooms were specious. We will recommend it to our friends and wish to go there in summer.
Great house. Great for 4 families + kids and pets.
Beautiful location! Loved the pool, tennis court, and open fire!
Wybaleena was a fantastic residence
Wybaleena was a lovely inviting residence whom the owners obviously take a lot of pride in maintaining. There was plenty of room for 7 adults and 7 kids and the open fires were lovely during the cold evenings. The kids loved running around the gardens and picking apples.
Great Country Getaway
This place is a fantastic family getaway. We stayed with another family and all the kids enjoyed riding their bikes, visiting the cows and picking apples from the orchard.
The house was warm and comfortable.
Ticked all the boxes!
This is a great house, loads of room and everything in the kitchen for cooking anything up although shopping for decent food not quite so easy. Would have loved to have seen photos of what it used to be like as the gardens were obviously once beautiful and maybe very English as lots of old roses, azaleas and even a laburnam tree! Enjoyed the fresh fruit from the garden and the pool was great
Perfect for a family retreat
This house makes you feel like you have stepped back in time. Beautiful property with lovely heritage-style house, plenty of space and area for family entertaining. Ideal stay for large families wanting to re-connect. Just lovely.
