Tranquil Setting

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt truly on holidays. The house was instantly inviting, as were the owners - we felt completely at home both inside and out. The pool was a wonderful inclusion for our son, who spent hours floating, jumping and diving. This was the perfect place to bring our little puppy who spent her days watching the wonderful birdlife off the back deck. We cannot wait for our next stay!

Our hosts were very accomodating and had thought of everything. The hosue is beautiful and was a pure joy to be in. Could not give a higher recommendation. If you are wanting a quite place in the trees do not look further!

A real country cottage

  • 5 of 5

Christmas in July in an 1895 Australian cottage was just perfect. Full of character charm and a place to relax with the ducks on the pond. A real county cottage. How life used to be.....enjoy it!

Stunning Property

  • 5 of 5

This quirky, inviting property was an absolute joy to stay at. From the lovely warm welcome and tour by Paul to the fabulous pot belly fire we lit to enjoy our wine by, Glenwood Homestead was simply a delight! Comfy beds, excellent amenities and a perfect country vibe close to the ocean, I would highly recommend a stay at this property - just make it longer than 2 nights!! It wasn't enough.

We really enjoy our stay at this property... Eventhough it was short but was amazing staying there with private pool, big area and very quiet place. I recommend others to go and stay at this property.

Fabulous holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to our hosts for a truly wonderful holiday. The pool was a particular highlight for our two pre-schoolers and we loved the serene, peaceful setting. Fantastic location with world class beaches nearby. Hopefully we will be back sometime.
