Description

Newly opened to holiday makers in the Mary Valley!! Be one of the first guests to stay and enjoy this beautiful country farming property.

Step back to another time and another pace at Oakview Farm Stay.

Ideally situated on 200 acres of farmland and right next door to the picturesque Imbil State Forest charming Oakview farm house and property offers guests unlimited peace, quiet and tranquility. Put the mad rush of daily life aside and drink in the serenity at Oakview. The only sound here is the sweet tinkling of bell birds along Coonoongibber Creek. The views across to the majestic Brooloo Bluff are simply breathtaking. You cannot help but relax here at Oakview.

Built in 1945, the freshly renovated Queenslander farm house is roomy, comfortable and charming. French doors throughout open onto wide cool verandas to enjoy the cool breezes and stunning views of the property. 3 large bedrooms comfortably sleep up to 8 people ( 1 king, 1 queen, 4 single). Oakview is an ideal holiday choice for a large family, several couples, a group of friends, or a romantic getaway for two. We are happy to consider larger groups on application.

Curl up on the day bed with a good book and a nice wine or cup of coffee. Let the kids run and play in the paddocks. Show them how to cook snags and damper around the campfire. Meander through the property, along pretty Coonoongibber Creek and through the nearby bush spotting native birds, kangaroos and more. Meet the quiet cattle and horses and feed them an apple or two! Marvel at the original timber cottage and farm shed built in 1900. Explore the numerous sights and natural beauty of the Mary Valley. Take a day trip to beautiful Sunshine Coast beaches, the famous Eumundi Markets or the enchanting hinterland townships of Mapleton, Montville and Maleny.

Your pets are welcome to enjoy a holiday at Oakview too! A large fully fenced back yard will keep your dogs safe and happy during your stay. Your dogs are welcome to enjoy the entire 200 acres with you and to have the chance to really stretch their legs.

HOLIDAY WITH YOUR OWN HORSE

Oakview is unique in that it is one of the few holiday rentals in South East Queensland where you can bring your own horses on holidays with you.

Two large grassy purpose built horse yards and shady paddock shelters mean your horses will be safe and comfortable during your stay at Oakview. Unlimited cool clean drinking water is available. The horse yards can readily be sectioned off into smaller yards for extra horses. Storage facilities for rugs, tack and feed are available. There is ample off road parking and turning space for horse floats. Please bring your own horse feed, feed bins and hay.

The Imbil State Forest right next door offers some of the best trail riding in SE Qld. Extensive hoop pine forests and native bushland offer riders almost endless trails to choose from. Nearby Charlie Moreland Park and Amamoor State Forest offer even further choices for great riding and are just a short float trip from Oakview.

For those less adventurous riders or for the young people in your group, Oakview offers 200 acres of gently undulating paddocks and pockets of bush to quietly explore with your horse. After a day of riding and exploring, come home and swim your horses in the babbling Coonoongibber Creek in the bottom paddock.

For your next holiday get a group of horsey friends together and come riding at Oakview. You and your horses will love it!

Guided group trail rides with quiet horses supplied can be booked nearby if you don't have your own horse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing weekend full of memories! How can we describe such a special weekend?! We were a great mix of families or all ages - everyone loved it! Property - a tribute to past owners;clean/ cared for/ every utensil; extra you can think of (coffee machine, flour for damper, mayonnaise, picnic things and so much more); the beds so, so comfortable; shower hot and great; the garden was so beautifully cared for (herbs too!) and the entire property was so lovingly restored. Activities - your choice! Beauty of this place was everyone can do their own thing - go kayaking, bush walk, horse riding (thankyou Anne:), kangaroo spotting, horse patting every day like clockwork, watch the campfire, mad games of Soccer, reading, boardgames, resting under a tree! Location - brilliant for those from the Sunshine Coast, only an hour so easy and quick for a long weekend. Very close to Imbil and Kenilworth for those extra cheeses and wine. Special mention - to be able to please SO many different holiday makers is a true achievement... We are all campers usually BUT we loved having our own property, bathroom, campfire and so much space all to ourselves, we may never camp again! Thankyou to Anne and family for allowing us to share this piece of paradise, we will definitely be returning....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome property! We had a fantastic weekend at Oakview superb location backing onto the Imbil State Forest the kids really enjoyed the wide open spaces to roam free and the abundance of wildlife to see, but the highlight for them was feeding the horses carrots and checking on the cows and calves everyday, while the adults enjoyed relaxing in the lovely gardens and on the beautiful verandah. The house itself was well equipped with everything you could possibly need including a great hot water service that never ran out!!! Look forward to returning again soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Family Getaway Our family could not have had a better holiday!! We were able to include the kids with their trail bikes, our two great danes, and even our horse! The horse had a beautiful paddock full of green feed, with horsey company just across the fence to help him settle in. The dogs met the cows, the boys rode their bikes and I rode my horse, with a nice cool glass of wine on the deck at the end of the day. It was as active or relaxing as you wanted it to be :) Can't wait to come back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable and relaxing Lovely and comfortable, relaxing place to escape to with friends and family. Get away from it all for a weekend or longer. Far from everything to be peaceful, but close enough to Kenilworth and Eumundi if you need supplies. Enjoy walks on the farm and in State Forest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peace and quiet Oakview is a beautiful, old house in an idyllic setting. Surrounded by fields and right on the doorstep of the Imbil State Forest, it is an ideal location to relax and unwind. We loved the fact that we could take our dog on holiday too - it was the first time he'd seen horses and cows! We will definitely be back for another visit.
