We have just returned from a fantastic two night stay in the Cob Quarters. It was just wonderful - a real getaway from life. The cottage is done up beautifully in its very simple way and we were all very comfortable (we being my husband, myself and three children) . We just loved the outdoor bath and shower with the...

Stayed at Glazebrook farmhouse with my family - Spray Point is totally relaxing, a real "get away from everything" experience, great views, we saw wild deer, goats, pigs, sheep and horses. Lots of great walking or running tracks. kids loved to be near the animals. Roland and Jenny the owners are very welcoming, I recommend taking one of Roland's 4WD...

We stayed at Gladesbrook Cottage. Just far enough away from everything to be entirely private, but near enough to pop in to the farm house if we needed anything. The cottage is small (the bedroom really is tiny, but we slept well!) and simple and all we needed - cooked dinner on the BBQ, and then sat on the verandah...

From the minute we arrived at Off The Mapp, we felt welcomed and we were not disappointed with Glazebrook Cottage, everything we needed there and a beautiful view.

My wife and I have just returned from 2 nights stay at the Cob Quarters and it was magnificent. The first thing that hit me was no cell phone coverage or internet access.......fantastic. The quarters are lovely and after looking at the restoration photos I was amazed at the hard work done to revive the accomodation into what it is...

We stayed at their Boundary Creek cabin. It's in a very remote location, only reachable by a beautiful 45 minutes drive by 4WD. The remoteness in itself is a very interesting experience (beautiful stars at night, no distractions of the outside world) but it was not the romantic get-away that we expected. Maybe better suitable for families or groups of...

Jenny M, Owner at Off The Mapp, responded to this review

Each of our accommodations is quite different and unfortunately sometimes confusion occurs from various web sources when guests see comment or pictures of one cottage and then end up booking another due to lack of availability or price choice. Boundary Creek Cabin is advertised as a wilderness cabin with timber bunks sleeping up to 6 and the Cob Quarters is...

If you're looking to get away from it all, breathe in the fresh mountain air and immerse yourself in a wonderfully authentic high country experience, there is no place better than Off the Mapp. Jenny and Roland are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for such a wonderful, relaxing and gorgeous escape. We'll be telling...

Yes there is nothing short of 5 stars on TA, and yes this is much deserved. Cob Quarters is a lovely place in a truly special riverside location. Jenny is wonderful and has a great eye for interior design, and Roland is so enthusiastic about conservation, and, if you ask, is a wealth of knowledge about native wildlife and terrain....

We recently stayed in the Cobb Quarters & had a wonderful weekend. Every detail has been carefully thought through. We loved the baths on the rocky outcrop above the river rapids. The outdoor shower was devine & the location is stunning. The cottage has been restored beautifully - much of it handcrafted by Roland. We ate delicious dinners cooked by...

We recently stayed in the Glazebrook Cottage (the newest addition at Spray Point Station). The Cottage is clean and tidy and so cute and romantic.
