About Robyn Olsson
I am passionate about providing excellent holiday accommodation and service to our guests! Married with five children, I understand the importance of great family holidays. Some of our fondest memories have come about from past times spent together at family-friendly holiday locations. My husband, Murray, spent most of his growing up years at this property. He, along with three of our sons currently run a beef cattle farm in the surrounding paddocks of both the cottage and homestead. Murray is also really enthusiastic about sharing this fantastic property with guests, as does his dear mum, Jan.

A very homey, comfortable and spacious house. Large deck situated beside an in-ground swimming pool with views of the surrounding countryside. Location private and scenic, a part of Scenic Rim Queensland. Inground private swimming pool with large deck close beside. Close access to Albert River which runs through the Eighteen Mile property. Opportunities to hike and explore, including nearby access to Lamington National Park. Opportunities to see a beef cattle farm in operation, and sometimes guests enjoy participating a little.

What makes this House unique
Relatively close to city life (Brisbane) though very much 'away from it all.' Eighteen Mile Homestead offers the ability to experience genuine Australian bushland/countryside plus beef cattle and small crops farming without having to travel very many kilometres to do so. Great, open, dark skies at night for stargazing. Ability for outdoor campfires - cooking plate provided.

Quiet, lots of space to spead out
Our group of 3 young families stayed for a long weekend. The house has everything you could need, and there's lots of room to spread out. Some beautiful spots nearby for bushwalking and creek for the kids to play in. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thanks Jan!

Great country experience
Our group really enjoyed this property. There were beautiful views around the valley and up to the hills.
It had all of the facilities we needed and lots of little extras, like kitchen supplies, games, & firewood. The deck was our fav place to hang out, but it was also hot enough for some to enjoy the pool.
The country kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed to cook for a large group, and the common areas were big & comfy to play games or watch movies.
It even felt a bit like a farm stay when the cattle were mustered up the hill behind the property. My personal fav was the fire pit, where we could build a large campfire to sit around & watch the stars until late at night.
Brilliant place to stay!!!
Loved the peace and quiet. Beautiful place to stay.
Perfect for a weekend break.
A month ago we myself and 9 friends stayed at the homestead to farewell a member of our group who has now made the move to live in the UK.
The size of the house was perfect for our party. The beds were comfortable and all came with electric blankets which was much appreciated as it was chilly. Dinner and drinks were easily prepared in the large kitchen. We loved the living room with table tennis and a TV so we could watch the football at the same time. The outdoor fire was also a highlight. We were provided with ample wood to keep the fire going both nights and we enjoyed blissful mornings around the outdoor table with a BBQ breakfast.
Robyn and Jan were easy to communicate with and provided everything we could have needed. The property is so lovely, peaceful and well equipped for a short break from the city. We were all happy to have no mobile reception and just enjoy the serenity and each others company. I will definitely be enquiring to stay again in summer so we can take advantage of the pool as well!
