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 The most delightful owner! The owner of this beautiful property could not have been more helpful or generous. While we had a bit of a hiccup in our own circumstances, Anne was so kind and thoughtful and helped us work it all out. We hope to be up there again very soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spot for a family holiday Thanks for sharing your beautiful farm with us, we all had such a good time exploring the property, feeding the horses, cooking marshmallows on the campfire, walking in the forest next door or just sitting on the cool verandahs reading our books and enjoying coffee, or wine and cheese. Loved taking our canoe out on Lake Borumba too. Great that our dogs could spend the holiday with us as well. Home has been beautifully restored, with lots of space to spread out, and it's a great base for exploring all that the Mary Valley has to offer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive and comfortable property Our stay at Oakview was most enjoyable. The property is very rural and beautiful. The owners couldn't be more friendly and the house has everything that one needs. It is perfect for a small or large family. Lovely to see the horses and cows close up and great for some good walks in the forest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from tranquility and privacy stayed at Oakview farm stay for just two nights in Jan 2015. it was exactly what we were looking for and so the description was spot on. the house is like a home from home and was very well equipped so that we didn't need to bring a thing. our 2 year old collie loved the gardens and balcony and even tried to make friends with the horses through the fence. the creek had water in it which we all loved. the swimming holes in the forest just up the road were also full and so we swam whilst it rained, pure fantasy stuff. we visited Eumundi market and Kenilworth (great for breakfast) and walked the dog for miles in the rainforest which is accessible from the house on foot. we can't praise this one enough. thank you for your care at the property and for being trusting enough to afford us such total privacy during our short stay. we will be back for sure. and next time we will try to get more than just two nights. highlights include evening by the firepit, huge flock of cockatoos, swimming holes in the forest and the sheer comfort of the house.

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....
