Some of our guest's comments:
Great stop on the way to Sydney! Loved the views. Julie, Victoria.
What a cosy little place with absolutely spectacular views and delicious treats! Very generous and well worth the journey for the peace and tranquillity! Exactly what we needed to help us unwind and break up our journey to Sydney. Thankyou for your hospitality, we loved our stay. Tom and Mary, Victoria
We were very cosy in the little house and loved looking out at the sheep while making a cup of tea! Our puppie, Harry, also loved exploring and staring at the sheep! Thankyou for having us! John and Jane, NSW

Relocating from Victoria to Queensland this property was an amazing find. Arriving late in the evening, we received a warm welcome. We had our Newfoundland (dog) travelling with us and she was so happy to be out of the car and for the opportunity to play with the three dogs living at the property. When we woke up the following morning we were blown away with the view, such a great way to start the morning before piling in the car for another long day driving. Wish we had longer to enjoy the area and the beautiful property.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. I loved meeting your beautiful dog!
Travelling through to Victoria from Harrington NSW we found this the perfect halfway point to rest and were so happy we did and will definitely do so in the future. We could not fault this accommodation at all. We found Jacquie to be friendly, delightful and very thoughtful insuring our stay would be pleasant and hassle free. Everything was so clean and all our needs were met. Good work Jacquie and we'll be definitely staying with you in the near future. Cheers, Cheryl and John
Thanks for staying with us. We do take pride in providing a clean and comfortable, pet friendly place to stay. Look forward to seeing you next time.
Ticked all our boxes!
We had the pleasure of staying here enroute to Victoria. It was everything we could have asked for - quiet, clean, amazing views & delightful hosts. Thank you, and we'll be back again soon.
Thanks Andy and Chris. So pleased you enjoyed our BnB. Look forward to your next visit!
Really great place to stay! Our dog loved the views of the wildlife.
Thanks for the positive feedback. Hope to see you again someday.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very dog friendly. Tip for new arrivals - text ahead to Jacquie so she has the opportunity to confine the farm dogs who can be quite intimidating. I was remiss in not doing that but Jacquie was very quick to allay our concerns about the dogs and kept them well away from our city fluff balls. We had a lovely stay at a beautiful location and can recommend it.
Thanks for your constructive comments Alison, regarding the dogs and texting arrival time. It really is a great help to know when guests are due to arrive. I was very pleased you enjoyed your stay, and I hope you can come again ( with your fluff balls!)
With all do respect it seems that you can't take on constructive criticism. Reflecting my persona!? I was your guest and unfortunately i was uncomfortable in your accommodation and the fact that you wrote in your reply that 'your reflecting my persona' is not very nice. Fact was you made my partner and I feel uncomfortable and a bit unwelcomed. Yes the pool and view was lovely but i think you need to re-read my review and take it on. Instead of blaming "my persona" maybe take it on board to improve the stay for your future guests. My review was honest and instead of laying blame you really should be apologizing for how uncomfortable our stay was. Yes i read the description and it seemed like a lovely place to stay, a nice little get away before we went back to our working life but unfortunately it wasn't as nice as what it seemed apart from the pool and views. As a person who runs a business i would take this criticism on board and NEVER LAY BLAME on a customer if they had a bad experience.
I'm very sorry you felt so uncomfortable, and that the stay wasn't up to your expectations.
