This has not been our first stay in Karralika, and it won't be the last one either! My partner booked a stay there to surprise me for my first 12 months in Australia, thinking that I'd like to get away from the city for a few days and enjoy the countryside and nature. I didn't just like it: I fell in love. I didn't know that you could find such a beautiful green place in NSW that looked more like the European or British countryside, but mixed with the most wonderful Australian, relaxed hospitality that I like so much. The hosts made us feel truly at home from the very first minute and we had such a great time that before we left we had booked our second stay. This one was longer and we managed to achieve something difficult to get when you are on a holiday: to feel at home. It sounds like a cliché ("a home away from home") but this is the only place where I've actually felt like this, because the place is set as a home (a very clean, comfortable home), the owners are a delightful couple with interesting and fun conversation, very down-to-earth and approachable, and the location is… Well, actually I wish my home had these views and this wonderful location. It is actually the home I wish for. Because of its location, where you just hear the birds and the breeze moving the leaves of the trees, you get true relaxation, connecting with nature instantly and feeling recharged! (As if the super comfy bed and the delicious home-cooked breakfast was not enough for this!) And, if you like animals, then it's paradise… Oh, I'll have a look at my diary and see when I can get my next break in Karralika!
