An excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property! We spent 4 nights at Bullaburra and could easily have stayed longer. Mary and Roger are great hosts and every small detail is considered (including bread, muffins and wine on arrival). The accommodation is extremely comfortable and the facilities mean there is no need to leave the property.

We particularly enjoyed spending time in the swim spa, playing pool, and general exploring the farm. Everybody in our travelling party returned home relaxed and with many new family memories.

There is no doubt we will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Catherine. Roger was delighted to give your boys the tractor ride experience and to inform them a little about the cows and calves. Farming on the Gerroa headland is indeed an idyllic holiday setting for our guests. Access to Seven Mile Beach and Crooked River estuary is just two minutes down the hill. We look forward to your return. Roger and Mary

Beautiful, relaxing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful weekend away ! Nice way to relax (even with the kids!!!!!)

65acres to explore.. Cows and a very scary bull, bunnies and a red belly that scared the life out of our teenage daughter, beach, our own rainforest with pathway and swing, nice seats to watch sunset and sunrise , Swimspa, pool table and log fire and a beautiful helpful accommodating host made for an awesome way to celebrate our 20 year anniversary ! Thanks Mary!

Owner's Response: Kylie So pleased you enjoyed your weekend away and the many amenities at Bullaburra. Relaxing in a peaceful environment is important in busy lives. Our well behaved bull, Basil, a handsome fellow, is contained in an electrified fence paddock so can be viewed from a distance. Echidnas, black snakes, and wallabies are part of the natural habitat and sometimes not sited for the whole summer season. You can walk and explore with confidence as all three do flee when humans approach. Kylie I was pleased to hear from you that the children want to return. We would be delighted to see you. Cheers Mary

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Bullaburra in many years. Mary is a wonderful host! She takes care of the tiniest details and is so welcoming! To my family Bullaburra is like a home away from home. We've visited many properties over the years but have always compared it to Bullaburra. The location, hospitality, accommodation, facilities provided are some of the outstanding things about this property. You need to go there to believe it. The kids loved it as much as the adults. I would highly recommend this property to all. Looking forward to our next visit at Bullaburra! My family had an awesome time! Thank you Mary!

Owner's Response: Zaria it was a pleasure to greet you and your family again. Roger and I are so pleased when guests appreciate the home, the special amenities (Swim spa, Pool table and Netflix), the lawns, gardens, farmland to oceanfront, and some of the best coastal scenery in Australia. Thank you for being such model guests. As grandparents, we have built the farmstead for families where children of all ages can explore our rain forest and enjoy the pebbly beach, rock platform and pools at the front of the property. Add canoeing in Crooked River, swimming and surfing at Seven Mile - you have the perfect family summer holiday venue. We hope to see you again soon Mary

Wonderful place to stay and super friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bullaburra with our toddler and a couple of friends. Hosts Mary and Roger made us feel welcome from the get go, with freshly baked blueberry muffins and a still-warm loaf of bread ready on our arrival. It's the perfect place to get away with the beautiful green lawn running down to the ocean and looking over 7 mile beach providing a couple of the most stunning sunsets we'd ever seen.

There's always something to do on the property (from table tennis, pool or just saying 'hi' to the herd of cows) and plenty of space to break away and get some quiet time.

The bathrooms are modern with great shower pressure.

The spa pool is state of the art and wonderful to relax in after a long day's surfing.

The decor is modern and stylish, and with a toddler running around we never felt worried we'd break anything precious.

The kitchen and BBQ had everything we needed to stay in and cook a feast.

All in all a super long weekend - highly recommend to a group of friends with or without kids!

Stunning location - great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a fabulous relaxing stay at Bullaburra with our family of five. Well located near beautiful beaches, national parks and all the conveniences at Gerringong and Kiama. The kids very much enjoyed the swim spa and we all had fun exploring the farm, its heritage rainforest, and the rocky surf beach within an easy walk. Our hosts, Roger and Mary, were very generous with helpful advice and more than happy to take our kids on tractor rides, which they adored. All in all, a very comfortable stay - we wish we could have stayed longer at this stunning ocean front farm.
