I stayed at the property on the 21st April, with friends from Melbourne. This was the fifth time that I have stayed at the property and I have always found it to be a wonderful retreat from the city. As have my full family, who have celebrated many birthdays there.
Having read the reviews of previous stayers I can agree with their assessments. The property is very well fitted out, is comfortable in all seasons, and accommodating for even a large number of guests, It sits in a picturesque setting surrounded by rain forest and enjoying views of the Valley. Following on the heels of a previous April 2017 reviewer I was very surprised at that negative reaction, which is completely the opposite of others who have stayed, from my experience. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. Book in early, and you will keep going back.
This property is amazing, Beautiful area very large gorgeous well equipped house has everything you need. The hens are great and very friendly the grandchildren loved it. The owner is very accommodating welcoming us on arrival and letting us know how everything worked letting us know to let the chickens out and they would find their way back to the pen at 4.30pm and help ourselves to the eggs. Amazingly the hens went back right on time as if they had a clock! We swam in the pool. Enjoyed the games room. We had our game of cricket in the grounds. Went for walks loved the wildlife. The house is very clean and we had a great time. Beautiful log fires massive dining table which was great for my 60th Birthday celebrations. Our ages went from 1yr-67 yrs old and everything in between we all loved it and would highly recommend this property.
visited Ellywan with my whole extended family and the set up was perfect. The setting was amazing and we especially loved the walks seeing wombats and other wild life. the kids loved the chickens. The property was clean and well equipped with a gorgeous large kitchen dining area. We really enjoyed cooking marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit.
I stayed here for the weekend lately, when i browsed and found this home i liked it cause of the space and enviroment, but when i arrived the photo's weren't as they advertised very old photo's and the place was 4/10 for the price so you are really paying for the land tax thats all. I would not stay here again dishes were dirty cutlery were dirty and glasses needed to be washed befor use. It is peaceful but if you don't care much about eating on clean plates its the place for you.
I washed and cleaned this place better than i recieved it cause of my massive bond deposit, afraid of them not refunding it back in case they tell me that the house was dirty. Please sus out photo's carefully and ask questions but the end of the day they always say its a (beautiful place), its a business. i rate this home a 4 out of ten. so its a 3 on there chart.
We had 2 nights here with a group of 11. There are 2 separate cottages which others grabbed first as we were last there. The house is very large and has every little thing you can think of. It was blowing like a hurricane on Saturday so we couldn't really enjoy the grounds. After we got back from lunch there was a note saying there were power lines down and thus no power till later in the night. Would have been ok except the toilets don't flush without electricity and no water actually runs at all. We ended up filling buckets from the pool to flush the toilets which considering the price for the house I didn't think was great. Lucky we had already booked dinner in the Valley because we cooked there the night before. The bedroom we had (I think most of them) had glass in the roof so I would recommend eye shades if you want to sleep - even the moon is bright shining in. Also ear plugs, we were next to the bathroom and the walls are pretty thin. Once we got outside we found a lovely running creek, a large chicken coup with feathered friends. citrus trees along the driveway - blood grapefruits were sooo good, lemons oranges etc. Heaps of wombats at dusk, a wallaby and 3 foxes.
