Lovely homestead

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The house was huge and even nicer than in the photos. The fire in the living room and the gas heater kept the house warm despite it being a freezing weekend in ballandean!

The house is in a great spot - located on a cattle property at the end of the road after driving past a number of wineries, and we saw kangaroos and deer every day.

Juanita was lovely and very attentive - making sure there was enough firewood because it was so cold!

Large house with all amenities and wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful experience for us. A group of us stayed here for a music event held nearby and the owners were very accommodating and helpful from the time we initially enquired. A wonderful period home with modern amenities, it is a bit out of town so you will need to be stocked for provisions but to look at the clear sky at night and enjoy the serenity is well worth the drive.

A Perfect Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

Fairbanks is a wonderful house & we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay! (I did not want to leave). 3 great sized bedrooms with lovely, comfy beds. 2 bathrooms inside + outdoor loo. It's a large, sprawling farmhouse and there's plenty of room to spread out and take in the ambience and fresh country air. A local wine tour company picked us up for a day trip and then dropped us home which was brilliant. We cooked meals in the well equipped kitchen. We relaxed with our wine purchases in front of a crackling log fire. Juanita was a perfect host. We will definitely be back!
