“Great house for a few nights away”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Travelled with four teenagers for a few nights out of the city. The house was excellent and the photos don't do it justice. Can tell there was a lot of love and effort put into the building and maintenance - was immaculate. Kids played table tennis, fusball and pool non stop. Outside fire pit was a perfect way to end the day. Thoroughly enjoyed Grey Gums

“Perfect house for an escape from the city”
Reviewed 22 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We've just returned from a wonderfully relaxing weekend at Grey Gums. The house is a great set up for two families and Helen and Dennis have created a beautiful and extremely well provisioned home. The children had a ball in the huge grounds, playing cricket and soccer, and made good use of the pool and table tennis tables. The fire pit was another big hit, toasting marshmallows under the stars!
We saw many kangaroos on the property and wombats and echidnas nearby. The veggie garden was a nice touch, and thank goodness for a proper coffee machine.
Thank you Helen and Dennis. We will be back!

We are glad you were able to enjoy many of the aspects of Grey Gums. We are still working on the garden and hope the citrus trees will be in full production when you return.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Highly recommend this property. We stayed with three young families and it ticked all the boxes for us. It was very clean and well maintained, great layout, had extra fun things to play with and the Dad's and kids had an amazing adventure into the woods, which they can't stop talking about. Hope you pick Grey Gums and have as much fun as we did, thanks D&H.

“Fantaboulous”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We arrived just at the beginning of a major rain event which totally suited us. We needed a total break and that is exactly what we got. The fire was easy to get started, thanks to some expert fire laying by our hosts. I actually got it started on 2 mornings by myself, which I am ridiculously proud. Having breakfast on the first morning we were joined by 2 large kangaroos. On the 2nd and nd 3rd mornings we had and nd family of them, dad, mum with a joey in her pouch, and a little one. They stayed for about an hour each morning. Needless to say we were thrilled. Grey Gums is perfect. With just 2 of us so we had only the main part, with the additional bedrooms closed off. We didn't need them as the living area is so spacious. Surprisingly we arrived arrived 3 pm and the house was nice and warm even though the fire wasn't lit yet. It really was the perfect get away.

“Perfect, perfect, perfect!”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed here with three friends for Christmas in July weekend. The booking process was incredibly simple and stress-free thanks to Helen and Dennis. They replied quickly and fully to all my questions - including how best to see the wildlife in the area!
The house itself is superb - absolutely beautiful with everything thought of. Every detail has been considered to ensure you have a fabulous stay. They even decorated their house with Christmas decorations for us too! There's lots to do from walks to games to DVDs to books to exploring the garden never mind simply relaxing. There is so much space that you can always find somewhere quiet to be if you want and there are enough comfy seats and tables to seat everyone too if it's a full house.
We absolutely loved this house and our only issue was a weekend was not long enough! It's clear to see how much thought, care, attention to detail and love has gone into the house. I would highly recommend this house - its a home away from home for groups of friends, families in fact anyone - we will definitely be back! Thank you so much Helen and Dennis.

What a perfect review, I couldn't have said it any better myself! I enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit and decorating the house for you. We really appreciate it when someone loves the house as much as we do. Thank you.
