Thank you to Jodi our host - made our short stay very comfortable. She is a fantastic cook, Italian with garden fresh vegetables and the fluffiest omelette I have ever eaten. Loved the relaxed vibe of the property and made friends with the chickens, rooster and ponies. Will definitely be back.

A big place with plenty of rooms, each decorated in its own way and with extra attention to detail. The overall atmosphere is very homely and the shared spaces are a joy. Located amidst the hills five minutes from Milla Milla.

We arrived and it was raining and it was 'no problem to light the fire in the main dining room'. :) The next morning we had breakfast on the lawn out the back overlooking alpacas, chickens and horses.
