We recently stayed two nights after a recommendation from friends. We were very happy.
The bed was comfortable, and everything was very clean.
We stayed in the Overland carrige and spent about the first hour just looking at all the original details in wonder.
Geoff and Yuan were wonderful hosts and we found the food to be amazing and from the massive veggie patch.
My partner made instant mates with the cockatoo and I loved the dogs and cat and small chickens and alpacas..... There were so many animals living there in harmony with the gardens.
By far my most favorite part were the gardens. We spent the afternoons wandering with a glass of Rose, looking at the sculptures, sitting on the deck chairs, feeding the alpacas, looking at the bees flying into their houses, and generally relaxing in the beuatiful surrounding.
This place is a lovely sanctuary and we wished we could have stayed longer.
