We absolutely loved our stay - Mary Rose is so welcoming and it was great to see the farm and participate in some activities to help out the community the day after our stay. We learnt a lot while also getting to relax and be in a beautiful environment. Mary Rose worked hard to ensure we would be able to stay for our chosen date and all the amenities and tiny house design made our stay even more special. Highly recommended!...

Our weekend away was glorious, we couldn't have asked for a better host in Mary Rose and her family. The homestead, location, animals and accommodation all intertwined to deliver the perfect getaway, one which was well needed and super easy to arrange. Definitely recommend to all. Thank you!!!

We had an amazing time staying at Mary Rose's farm in the Blue Truck. Mary was a kind and welcoming host, showing us around her property, introducing us to the animals and letting us cuddle and feed the lambs! The cabin was beautifully crafted and so cozy with the little rocket of a fireplace.
During our stay we travelled out towards the Otways to see the stunning forests and waterfalls on offer, including Hopetoun Falls and the Californian Redwoods. It was a beautiful drive there and the real highlight was the walk to Beauchamp Falls through magical mossy forests. We also spent some time exploring the beach, food and shopping experiences on offer in Torquay and Geelong which were just a short drive away.
