Heaven in earth
We have to say that our stay at the farmhouse was one of the most memorable and relaxing we have ever had. The property is just amazing and I can’t express how much we loved the location, the beautiful furnishings and attention to detail in the house and the most stunning views we have ever seen. Alita was so welcoming and hospitable in every conversation we had and we can’t wait to come back again to experience the slice of heaven 😊
Epic week in Byron hinterland
Had an amazing week with my family making memories to last a lifetime! The house is spectacular. The home is decked out as a kids haven from the mud kitchen, cubby, swings, toys and pool...I could go on! Very comfortable. Welcoming host. Every angle is breathtaking. Highly recommended!
Always a great escape
Hello, this is our second visit to Temple farmhouse and we really enjoyed our stay again. The view and the pool are really what make this place so special. If the owner is open to suggestions, I think there could be some improvements made to really make the place feel luxe as it’s expensive if you are just taking up a small family of four.
The mattresses are uncomfortable and not realistic for small children to sleep on high beds, the bed frames on the main bed and the one in the space next to the kitchen have these head boards that bangs against the wall with any movement whatsoever (even making the bed makes noise!), the couches aren’t very comfortable to sit back and relax however they do look good. The addition of the kids play area is nice and the outside baths are fabulous. We loved this experience and made the most of the amazing views from this perspective of the property.
There seems to be a magpie problem which wasn’t there the last time we stayed with over 10-15 magpies sitting on top of the swings at any given time. It meant that the swings were covered in bird poo and our children weren’t keen to play In that space with so many magpies around. The magpies also woke us up every morning at about 5am as they scratched on the roof which is metal. It is so loud I thought someone was breaking In at first. Kind of takes away from the relaxing sleep ins with the amazing views across the valley. Is there a way a bird of prey could fix this problem? Or even some fake owls on the roof and swing set to deter them?
There was also an ant problem from the main bathroom through to the kitchen which was frustrating as this ant trail greeted us on the first day.
I appreciate the snake repellents that were placed around the property as we had a very scary experience on our first trip last year with a brown snake under the swing set. The owner was quick to respond and put so much care into doing all she could to do deter snakes. Keeping in mind this is a farm so nature is going to live and breathe which is what we sign up for when staying at Temple farm.
I think with improvements this place will
Continue to be a special holiday destination for our little family.
Most amazing weekend getaway!!
We booked Temple Farmhouse for a girls long weekend getaway and had the most amazing time! The house and property is stunning and we were blessed with perfect weather to relax poolside all weekend. Check in was quick and easy, the property was immaculate, and everything went perfectly. We would definitely stay again!!
The Farmhouse was all we could have hoped for on the weekend of our wedding. Was a fantastic base for our weekend. Such a relaxed environment and the sunsets each night were breathtaking.
Alita was a wonderful and accommodating host. Would highly recommend for a family getaway or weekend away with friends in the hinterland.
Thank you Alita for a wonderful stay!
Beyond amazing. This is what dreams are made of!!!
From the very first enquiry Alita was an absolute dream to deal with. Everything went as smoothly and easily as possible. The house is so incredible, the moment we drove up we knew we had entered in to something VERY special. The house, the interiors, the appliances were all top of the range. The endless detail in the styling was absolutely beautiful!!.
The view, oh my goodness the VIEW is out of this world!!! Breathtaking. Absolutely stunning.
We have 3 young kids and they were so happy, calm, relaxed and entertained the whole time. It was such a beautiful time for us and the perfect place to reconnect as a family.
You will not be disappointed if you book this house. It is so beyond perfect we never wanted to leave.
