About Philip & Yolanda de Haan
We love providing our guests with accommodation that will make you feel special. So, together with a small, dynamic team of local people, we ensure you have an amazing and well maintained holiday house in the bush. “We love the Australian bush and being surrounded by nature. The bird sounds, croaking frogs, the summer hum of cicadas, the scent of the bush and the starry nights are re-energising and liberating. Topi Gums transports you to a place where you feel like nothing else matters. So we're enthusiastic about sharing these experiences with you. We invite you to relax at Topi Gums. It's an appealing and beautiful place and, even though you'll have the space to yourself, you'll still feel our warm welcome. HISTORY: The name “Topi” comes from the Worimi people who occupied many areas of the Great Lakes and the Birrimbai tribe who occupied areas of Bungwahl. “Topi”, means to stay, and “Topi Topi” means to stay a little while longer. It is believed that the region of Topi Topi was not settled by any of the Worimi tribes, rather they travelled through and rested there. So, we invite you to come and relax, and stay a little while longer. Our 2pm checkout time means that you too can stay a little bit longer.
Philip & Yolanda de Haan purchased this house in 1994
Why Philip & Yolanda de Haan chose Bungwahl
We chose this place because you feel 'away from it all', nothing else matters. It offers you your own space without a 'next door' neighbour while being near the coast and lakes of the Great Lakes. We love the choices - trees and bush air, taking long beach and lake walks. Topi Gums gives us the opportunity to explore different places. At the day's end we love returning home to retreat in our own bit of paradise, just in time to hear the late afternoon twitter of tiny finches, wrens and wagtail birds. Topi Gums gives us joy.
What makes this house unique
We love Topi Gums for its fresh bush scents, the trees, the solitude, its ability to transport you from usual life to a green and clean environment, and to experience the re-energising and delightful touch of nature.
