“A wonderful bed and breakfast. Sandra has a beautiful private guest suite attached to the back of there house. It was cosy on the cold mornings. It's the little touches that really make this place special, from the hand made soaps, to the delicious homemade meals. Sandra and Bruce are thoughtful, kind host, they are there to assist with questions about the local area and also give you your own private space. We visited with a toddler, they had a little bed for him and a box of toys and books to entertain him too. We will definitely return.”
Hemingway’s on the Hill is a rustic private indulgence. Set high on the hill, bearing witness to the best of rural life. Cows graze paddocks, and flocks of birds fly overhead. Life is everywhere. Curated by Interior Designer Fifi. She wrote a story for the life to be lived in the space. Like the great man himself, thoughtful yet spare enough with surprises of artful collection. We escaped the city 15 years ago. We found a better life. Come and stay and write your own love story.
“Hemingways is outstanding - words cannot begin to explain how great this place is, if you get the opportunity to stay here - do yourself a favour and just book! Soaking in the outdoor tub under the stars, watching the wildlife (including a very cute frog who kept coming for a dip with us). Very clean place, and Fifi has gone above and beyond to make sure that it is carefully cleaned between stays, thoughtfully left us breakfast supplies (including bacon and eggs!) Really stressful time for everyone (Covid-19) and my partner and I are stuck far from home, few days here to relax and switch off was amazing. I never wanted to leave!Lovely hosts, unfortunately couldn't meet face to face but Fifi was readily available for us during our stay and literally everything has been thought of with plenty of information on what to do in the area, although we chose mostly just to stay, unwind, with such a wonderful view! Thankyou thankyou xox”
Come to a home in KURANDA rainforest reserve. A room is ready for a generous price!
“Elizabeths place is amazing. Its a rural setting with the designs of being a working farm. The wallaby grazing the yard in the morning was delightful as well as sleeping with the sounds of the jungle reverberating! This is NOT a place for everyone. If you are looking for that 5 star luxury resort atmosphere, go somewhere else. If you are looking to support local people in their real life, then look no further. The room that she has set aside for guests is safe, private and exceptionally clean. I found, though, i enjoyed the veranda out from the kitchen most, as well as Elizabeth's company. What a amazing woman she is! The bathroom is still being finished but is very serviceable and private. I loved the design she is working on. Again, this is not for those that want a pristine, postcard experience, but for those of us who love to experience the life of those that live there...day to day! THANK YOU Elizabeth for an exceptional experience!”
