About Perina and Nick Oliver
Nick and Perina Oliver have lived here for 44 years and are "nearly" considered to be locals.
Perina and Nick Oliver purchased this Cottage in 1974
Why Perina and Nick Oliver chose Federal
It was and is very special - it is very private and picturesque. The property was bought from the original owner - Mr Stanley King who inherited the land from his father - a first settler to the area in the late 1890's
What makes this Cottage unique
The property is extremely quiet and picturesque and devoid of traffic and people - unless invited. We value the seclusion and privacy of our property and ask our guests to respect this. No Drones please.

Lovely cottage, scenery and hospitality
We have just returned from a short weekend away to Mara Joy Cottage and absolutely loved our time there. It was a great space to sit and enjoy the simple pleasures and spend time together and we hope to come back in the future. Our 3 year old had so much fun, we squeezed fresh orange juice, fed the chickens and had plenty of space to kick the ball around. We enjoyed taking the time to watch the sun setting and waking to see the fog in the valley.
Thankyou for making our stay so great.
Rolling Hills & Peace
Lovely weekend away with friends.
Our hosts Perina & Nick are so lucky to be living in this peaceful setting.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge of the local area & the history of the farm. All very interesting.
Everything at the cottage was as expected, as shown in the photos & info online.
Great location, clean & tidy, comfortable etc etc.
No complaints from us.
Oranges were deliciously juicy & tasted as they did as a kid - straight from the tree 😋�
Will definitely come back & try a summer visit next time, stay longer & relax on the deck, breathing in the fresh air & looking at that beautiful view on those long summer evenings.
Thanks for having us 😊�
A great place to escape the rat race and enjoy the green rolling hills of the Byron shire. Our friendly hosts Nick and Peri provided everything we needed. Free wifi and heated pool with a view were enjoyed by our kids. Highly recommend.
stunning peaceful cottage
Thank you Nick & Perina we enjoyed our stay in your beautiful cottage set in the hinterland of Byron overlooking the most stunning views across the valley. We also enjoyed sitting on the deck sipping our wine and taking in the beautiful sunsets. You were such lovely hosts giving us a guided tour of your lovely property.
Fantastic property on a stunning view.
The hosts were so accommodating.
A real little touch of paradise
Stunning location and amazing and spacious house
This house and location are really amazing. It is even better than the pictures. It is a dream house and a dream location. The large property is stunning. The views towards nightcap national park are beautiful. You can see and hear many birds. The house is very spacious and stunning. It has everything you wish for. Bbq outside on a very large veranda. The owners Nick and Perina are very very kind and helpfull. If you need them, they are there. The drive from Brisbane AirPort is easy and 2 hours. There are many things to do in the hinterland but you won’t be bored staying at this amazing house. The pool is also very nice. We can’t wait to return!
It’s a long long way from the Netherlands but you are both always welcome to return.
