Best ever.

  • 5 of 5

we has 13 for a family holiday all ages little kids, big kids and adults, couples singles, grandparents. Harvest home was perfect for all, enough space to have some quiet time when required an amazing communal spaces when we all wanted to get together.

My favorite thing (other than our fantastic Host Karen) was the outdoor kitchen.Will be back and would highly recommend,

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you found the services lacking at the Harvester Home. Your comments concerned me greatly and prompted me to make the move back from Perth earlier than planned to manage the home. The caretaker left not long after you stayed. I can assure you that the issues you raised have been addressed and the property is well maintained and clean and very popular with guests that stay. Many of them have posted very positive comments on Trip Advisor Review site. Thank you for providing feedback on your stay. Kind regards
