We unfortunately had to cancel our arrangements due to COVID restrictions however Rob and Tracey were extremely accommodating and understanding and waived their usual cancellation fee. Based on other reviews we were really excited for our trip so hope to book again soon, virus permitting!

My friend and I recently enjoyed 3 nights at this venue. It was very comfortable in the B & B house. However, there are a few issues that should be made clear when booking. First and foremost you will have absolutely no phone or internet coverage at all. I was unable to make or receive calls and unable to use my tablet to do the work I needed to. The owner stated they had internet but was unwilling to let us use it. Whilst I understand this is a FARM stay, you would not think that being only a few KM’s from a main town that there would be no coverage. If you need to be accessible you will not be. Secondly, the website states there is a private pool. This is not the case. The pool is right next to the owners house and is overlooked by the owners kitchen and dining area. It is also a shared pool with anyone else who might be staying there - which could be anything up to and over 30 people if both houses are full and the campsite is utilised. I have attached a photo from the other angle than the one on the website. It was a lovely relaxing stay and very comfortable, however, I felt it important that the owner add this information to the website, hence why I am sharing.

Hi Kimmyinoz Thank you for your constructive review, Yes the best part about being in the country of Oz is being away from city distractions, Phone service is limited yes But Telstra does offer a service that does work on the property if it is needed. Also on our websites it is stated No wifi is available so that clears that up. Being a country BNB we pride ourselves on being positive , caring and sharing and guests being able to use the Heated pool is a great way of communicating this, we actively encourage potential guests to ask questions about our facilities if they have any, so there is no issues when they arrive or leave. we look forward to meeting more guests at Breakaway Farmstay. regards The Breakaway Team

We booked a 3 night stay for our three-year-old’s birthday as she had picked “animals” over the “beach”. We were initially unsure about not being at the beach but we are so glad that we picked the farm. We stayed in the spacious, spotless, two bedroom apartment which is located near the goats, chickens, ducks and basil the sheep, as well as a trampoline, swing and cubby house with slide. Every morning we watched the family of goats wander around their block feeding. Our little one loved hand feeding the animals every morning and cuddling the baby goats ( kids) as did we. There is no wifi and no phone reception which was exactly what we wanted, to disconnect from tech. Rob was always the gracious host, with darling Marley the resident pup always obliging an over zealous toddler who was besotted with her. Breakfast provisions are generous and of quality, with eggs from the farm “ladies”. Barely 10 minutes from Victor Harbour for tiny day trips. We look forward to being back. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Rob and Tracey has a huge and beautiful farm in Waitpinga. They have heaps of animals wherein you can help feed sheep, goats and chicken and Marley, their very friendly dog, that you can play with. Their BNB is clean, modern and comfortable. We were surprised at how generous Rob and Tracey were with the breakfast provisions and the added bonus of wine, chocolates, fruits and juices. The price to stay is affordable especially with all that you are getting and as comparison to other BNBs and farmstays. They also have a game room and indoor pool that are open during summer. Even if it wasn’t summer, we got preoccupied with playing darts, enjoying the woodfire and the farm animals. We’ve also learnt more about animals thru Rob’s expertise. Hehe! Rob is very accommodating and is always happy to help with anything. We’re so glad we found this place and we will definitely be back! Thank you so much, Rob and Tracey! 😊

Booked through Tripadvisor site for the weekend and paid in advance for weekend. All seemed good online. Called the property regarding the arrival time only to discover the venue was completely booked out! Absolutely no rooms available. Owner not sure how this could have happened. Contacted Tripadvisor - to get payment back, which they did, thankfully. Same weekend was also available on other sites. So be ware not all is as it seems online! Don't know who's to blame?

We certainly appologised for this mistake in booking. Unfortunatley with all the booking companies are now owned by overseas businesses things sometimes do not work out in the property owners favor. This is why we broadcast the idea of booking direct with the property you wish to stay at. It stops problems like double booking and all the money stays in Australia.
