About Larissa Carrus

I love nature photography, bush walking, going to the beach, camping, kayaking, gardening and growing my own fruit and vegetables. Travelling to new places and meeting new people. I love to share this part of the world with people, and let them experience what it's like to live in harmony with nature. I believe life was meant to be simple and I like to remind people that we are a part of nature and by taking care of it in turn we are taking care of ourselves.

Larissa Carrus purchased this house in 2008

You will leave here feeling reconnected to your purpose and inspired to live a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life.

Best Girls Weekend Experience!

  • 5 of 5

8 great Girls, 1 amazing house, close location to the Gold Coast and we couldnt have had a better time. Every girl has messaged me saying we must make this an annual stay.

Its just got everything. Comfy beds and pillows, entertainment theatre, outdoor spa, a gorgeous deck with a comfortable couch with views and you just feel like your in the hunter valley rather than 20 mins drive from my home in Gold Coast! The photos dont actually do this home justice.

Larissa is easy to deal with and answered any questions quickly and hassle free.

Highly recommend this stay for anyone.

Fantastic property

Our family group of 7 chose the Mountainview Retreat to celebrate a milestone birthday and we weren't disappointed. The home is magnificent, luxurious and comfortable with stunning views and the owners were helpful, obliging and very generous. Hope we have the opportunity to stay again.
