Whether you're a rail enthusiast (like me!!) or not, Harmony Hill is a dream to stay in. A 1912 rail car perched in the hills, over looking Eumundi and surrounding valleys. A little piece of history, tucked away for your pleasure. Thank goodness people like Fizzie and John exist and are able to share this with us.
From the décor inside of steam train paintings and metro related art to the extras provided on the balcony, like mozzie coils/spray and the like, everything just felt so welcoming and like we'd stepped into our holiday HOME. With cute little quirks like cord pull light 'switches' and a set of original tiny steps off the back verandah (there's perfectly normal sized steps, too - these are just worth mentioning!), it sure beat the same old white on white hotel room we always stay in.
I heard Kookuburras singing, and the calls of so many wild birds I'd never heard before, it's amazing what an hour drive out of Brisbane can do for the senses.
Fizzie was a wonderful host, she gave us all the feeling we could bother her whenever the heck we liked, but also that she would give us as much space as we liked, being on a crazy girls weekend and all!
If you're looking for something unique yet homely, spend some time at Harmony Hill. Be warned though, you might cry when you leave. :)
Lovely accommodation, perfect for our night in Eumundi. Bed was super comfortable. Our Host Lizzie , met us and went through everything the carriage had to offer.
We rented the refurbished railway carriage for our family, and it was a great experience. We made lots of railway jokes while we were there (All aboard! Tickets please!). But the carriage was in fact much better than a joke: It was a fine 1912 real carriage now hosting 2 bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom. We used the well-equipped kitchen for cooking the breakfast which our hosts had provided (the so-called "hamper"). The surrounding garden is nice and features oranges. We even had some of these oranges squeezed for breakfast. I've never had fresher orange juice my whole life. Delicious! We were told about the often visiting kangaroos, but they unfortunately hid themselves when we were looking for them. Anyway, the tranquility of this countryside place is lovely. And it's not far from the town Eumundi either, with its restaurants and shops. Australia Zoo is also within reach.
When you drive up to where it is located the views are breathtaking. Great Location to markets and shops. So quiet and relaxing. Fizzie was so welcoming. The train carriage was beautiful to stay in. Clean, tidy and cosy. Would definitely stay again!!!
My two sisters and I stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the seclusion of the estate. We didn't feel we had to hold back with our laughter and mad stories while staying because there was nobody else there to disturb. The carriage was a delight to stay in. It was comfortably appointed with everything we three needed. Fizzie was an attentive host who obliged with our requests of extra filtered water and took our compostable waste each day as well as dropping by to check everything was going well. We will definitely recommend her harmony hill to friends and colleagues. Thanks Fizzie.
We loved the comfy & quirky railway carriage, the gorgeous hill-top location and the spectacular views. Also really appreciated the fact it was possible to stay for just one night (even over a weekend during the school holidays) - a rare find indeed. Great spot from which to enjoy everything that Eumundi & Noosa have to offer. Many thanks Fizzie & John, we hope to return!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the train carriage. The bedroom was more spacious than we thought and we had all we needed in the kitchen. the kids loved the pool and the sense of being away from it all was lovely. Fizzie and john made us feel at home. Would definitely book again.
