Comments from guests

"This house was absolutely incredible. From the minute we walked into the house we felt totally relaxed and calm. The silence of the region plus the comfort of all the decor was gorgeous. We spent most of our time either watching the gorgeous fireplace roaring with heat, or sitting out watching the world go by. Thank you so much for our time there - everyone agreed that we WILL be back again!!"

"We had a brilliant time down at Charleson Farm for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Our 3 kids loved the place and the room outside to run around, and also quite enjoyed chasing the roos and helping with the fire duties. While we felt completely isolated (which is what we wanted), there were plenty of great food and wine places within 15-20 minutes to satisfy all our needs. Currently working out when our next trip to Charleson will be. Thanks - it was just brilliant."

"Our weekend was fantastic, we can not say enough about the gorgeous house and for thinking of all the little things needed but often forgotten. We had an amazing time with all the tired and frazzled mothers leaving yesterday feeling revived and a little sore from the laughter and warm with memories that we will keep with us for a long time. It really was a special weekend."

"Charleson Farm was very nice ... the perfect place for families who want total seclusion. The kangaroos came right up to the house almost every day."

"WOW that was great holiday even though we were rained in, we still went walking in the rain and dried by the beautiful fireplace! We definitely plan to come and stay again - it is hard to find such a nice house that fits all my siblings in it!!"

"The house is fantastic for a group weekend away, with all quarters very well designed"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing View This very relaxing property was a joy to stay in for a small group of friends. It was very warm and cosy for a large modern space on a winter weekend and lots of kangaroos to impress children. The kitchen is well stocked with basics and the beds are beautifully soft. We slept in, read by the fire all weekend, played board games and enjoyed the Foxtel! The local area was great for a stroll. Very relaxing. Highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace, quiet, space and beautiful scenery We stayed at Charleson Farm recently for my dad's 70th birthday - 6 adults and 2 children in total. It was a perfect location for a family getaway as there is plenty of space to spread out with activities for everyone. The games room got used loads! The scenery is incredible and so relaxing. My main loves were the space, scenery, the fire and games room. The only drawback is that there is only one bathroom but this wouldn't stop me staying there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Stay Me and my partner celebrated our 10 year anniversary here last week , we had a few friends stay over with us and it was the best time we had. The property is beautiful and the owner has taken care of every small thing imaginable.We stayed two nights and did not have to step out at all. The views around are amazing and it was a refreshing change to get out of the city . I absolutely recommend this place and will surely come back. Maria was constantly in touch with me in relations to booking and answered all my queries leading to the booking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent view An extremely well-presented property with a beautiful view. Although we were unlucky to come across a power outage during our stay, the owner was very supportive and kept us informed in advance. Overall it's been a lovely experience.
