We had the most wonderful stay at Dumaresq. Thank you Chris for making us feel welcome and ensuring we had a great stay. Cannot fault this amazing property...everything you could need and a spectacular outlook. We truly enjoyed unwinding and the kids loved seeing the countryside.
Clean, warm and plenty of space for 13 of us. Quality finishes with all the extra touches, thank you Chris for a wonderful welcome, already planning the next get together!
Absolute rural luxury!
Fantastic group accommodation. Very clean, spacious and really quite luxurious overall.
A great winter retreat, was an absolute pleasure to stay here and spend quality time with friends away from city life.
We experienced a rare treat of sitting, chatting and having a few drinks around the camp fire whilst having a dome of a sky full of stars as the only lights for miles. Blissful!
We will definitely be back.
Just don't forget the milk.....the shops are a loooong drive away!
Amazing Amazing Amazing
We have just returned from the long weekend at Dumaresq Homestead and I cannot rate this property highly enough. There was eight of us in total - 4 adults and 4 children and the moment we stepped into the house we knew the weekend was going to be amazing. It is located 4 hours from Brisbane and about 1 hr 15 min from Stanthorpe but I can tell you the drive is worth every moment you will spend here. Our days were filled with relaxation , sitting by the fireplace, playing cricket, exploring the property, cooking our meals in the gourmet kitchen, sipping on a wine as we watched the amazing sunset then heading to the fire pit where we sat around the warmth and toasted marshmallows. This is an amazing place for the children and they hardly wanted to watch TV all weekend - they spent hours running around the property, collecting things and we even got to visit the pigs and chooks owned by the caretakers Keith and Lynda. There was never a fear in our mind of where our children were and we knew no matter where they were they were safe as there is no one else in miles. The house boasts 6 bedrooms and the hallway is something to be seen . I could keep going on about the property but all I can say is do yourself a favour and take the visit - we have already put in a booking to visit again next year. Oh and the caretakers Keith and Lynda are an absolute delight to deal with as is Paul the owner.
We have just spent Easter at this fantastic property. It surpassed our expectations. So much space and everything we could need. We had 10 people in our group and not once did we feel crowded or cramped.
Amazing house. Wish we could keep it our little secret. Top fishing spot too.
