The Perfect Weekend Escape For Intimate Groups of Friends and Families
About Larissa Carrus
I love nature photography, bush walking, going to the beach, camping, kayaking, gardening and growing my own fruit and vegetables. Travelling to new places and meeting new people. I love to share this part of the world with people, and let them experience what it's like to live in harmony with nature. I believe life was meant to be simple and I like to remind people that we are a part of nature and by taking care of it in turn we are taking care of ourselves.
Larissa Carrus purchased this House in 2008
Why Larissa Carrus chose Wongawallan
This is a place where you can leave all your worries behind. It's a place that re-energizes and rejuvenates the mind, body and soul. Set amongst pristine nature, wake to nothing but the sounds of birds singing. Get high on the fresh mountain air while enjoying the magnificent views from the large timber deck. Take a stroll through the lush gardens and pick yourself some fresh seasonal fruit for breakfast while you greet the local wildlife. Kookaburra's, Wallabies, King Parrots, Koala's, Rosella's, Rainbow Lorikeets and Wedge Tail Eagles are all at home here. You will leave here feeling reconnected to your purpose and inspired to live a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life.
What makes this House unique
Bordering a protected national park and set high up in the mountains you really can't get much closer to nature. While also being completely comfortable in your very own luxurious mountain retreat with everything you need including fresh organic food growing in the garden. You will find yourself using every excuse not to leave this wonderful place.

Amazing property with so much to keep you entertained without leaving the house!
Thank you so much for allowing us to be at your stunning property for the weekend, we had an amazing time and with all of the different rooms and places you could hang out, we had a great weekend with friends bonding and enjoying the serenity of the surrounds. We have planned to make it an annual trip so will definitely come back again next year.
I cannot praise this place enough.
I stayed here with my partner, my
Mum and my aunt for three nights over my 29th birthday. The house itself is incredible. The walls are full of the owners own art work. The furnishings and decor is truly stunning. Great outdoor area with fabulous hut tub and incredible views from the huge balcony overlooking the mountains. To say it’s only around half an hour drive from surfers paradise and a lot of other busy places it’s a beautiful serene area where you can fully relax and unwind. I would certainly stay here again in a heartbreat!
We enjoyed our stay very much at this well presented property with stunning views of the mountain range. Very private. Loved the fire pit area and the bar area downstairs. Our hosts put in a lot of effort in making our stay most comfortable and memorable
Thank you Shiv, so happy that you all enjoyed your stay. Please come back again.
Fantastic Girls Weekend Away!!
What a fabulous property this is! We had such a fabulous time at this great house in an amazing location. It was so peaceful and relaxing sitting on the spacious,comfy verandah of an afternoon/night watching the sun set over the mountains.
We were visited by a kangaroo and several birds and really appreciated being in such a natural, beautiful environment.
Plenty of room for the 7 of us, and everything you need for cooking.
Not too far away is Mt.Tambourine, where we went for a 1hr walk on the Witches Track, followed by a stroll through the village and a beer at the brewery which had live music.
We enjoyed Larissa's property so much we will be making this an annual event.
Thanks so much for such a wonderfull review Suzanne..I'm so happy to hear you and your friends had such a great time. You are most welcome to come back anytime!
This property is absolutely outstanding. Every detail is pure luxury, right down to the beautiful shower and bath products and amazingly comfortable
pillows. The stunning mountain views plus the total peace and quiet make relaxation easy. The secluded outdoor spa, fire pit and bar make it easy for a group to unwind and enjoy a truly exceptional weekend.
Gorgeous views and perfect for a relaxing weekend
We had a relaxing girls weekend away at 'The Mountain View Retreat'. The house is spacious, lovely and there are gorgeous views from the deck. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and took advantage of the fire pit, spa and movie room. Highly recommend staying here for a group weekend getaway and would love to come back!
Thank you Eunice, You and your friends are most welcome anytime! you left the property so clean and tidy which was very much appreciated!
