Peaceful but needs a makeover

  • 3 of 5

The farm definitely needs an update and the kitchen needed a good clean. Our peace and quiet on the night was spoiled by party noise out in the middle of nowhere!!!! The breakfast items left for us were great and enjoyed.

Owner's Response: Thanks Barb for your review. We believe the retro character and charm of the Californian bungalow house, as the photos on Stayz show, would be spoiled with a modern update. The kitchen was definitely cleaned thoroughly before your arrival. We also believe the price charged is extremely reasonable as it includes a whole house and breakfast, and in a beautiful secluded setting. Unfortunately we have no control over parties in the district which are, however extremely rare. Thanks Marg

Wonderful family weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. The cottage was lovely and very cosy with the fire heating the house all night. We enjoyed playing card games by the fire once the kids were tucked up in bed. Beds were comfy, and everyone had a good night's sleep. Breakfast provisions were delicious and snacks were a friendly welcome. There were lovely touches throughout the house to make family stays more comfortable. The teapots were also a very cute idea. We had a great time going on walks around the property, seeing many kangaroos in the morning. Cottage was in great condition for its age and we enjoyed reading about its history. We look forward to staying again. Thank you

Back to nature

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay with the kids. The fire warmed up the house (we closed a few doors to focus the heat in particular areas), the paddocks provided lots of space for the kids with a highlight being the birth of a calf whilst there. The host was lovely and very helpful and breakfast covered all taste buds! If you are seeking somewhere to escape and get back to basics, this is the place to be. Kids (10 & 12) are already asking to go back. We took advantage of the courtesy pick up/drop off service offered by Elphinstone Hotel and enjoyed a lovely meal there on the Saturday night.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kim for your lovely words. Yes do come back again if you wish. You were lucky to be here while the cows were calving - we have 4 little ones now and they're all doing well!

Excellent property

Very enjoyable and well set out. Our dogs had a great time in the large fully enclosed yard. Was lovely to come back to the fire being lit every night.
