Five minutes from Samford in semi rural Wights Mountain sits “Fuimus”. A tropical oasis nestled into 5 acres of undulating lawn and gum trees. Get lost in a book on the daybed by the pool, sip a wine while watching the kids on the activity centre or toast marshmallows over the open fire. A wonderful bush retreat in winter and a tropical paradise in summer, “Fuimus” is a wonderful getaway for year round family enjoyment.

The space

Picture yourselves…

Sipping a hearty red, or toasting marshmallows with the kids, around a bonfire, complete with bench seats and camp oven.

Losing yourself in that book you’ve been dying to read, or catching up on some much needed veg time in front of the 60” flatscreen, while the slow combustion fire warms the family room.

Grilling some snags on the Weber, while the kids swim or play on the Taj Mahal of activity centres complete with hopscotch, slide, swings, 2 metre sandpit and climbing walls.

Only 28kms from Brisbane’s CBD and surrounded by mountains, Fuimus could be your perfect getaway, with 5 acres of gently undulating land. The Palm trees dotted around the house and pool conjure up the feeling of a tropical oasis.

You wont be able to keep the kids out of the pool, complete with water slide, pool toys, and 2 adjustable umbrellas for sun protection. The queen-sized day bed in the gazebo is the perfect spot for an afternoon nap.

Watch your kids biking or scooting along the 220 metre long, tar driveway or kicking a ball around the wide, open spaces. Although once they discover the activity centre, it will be difficult to drag them inside at the end of the day.

Who doesn’t love to toast marshmallows? Can you see your kids singing songs around the campfire in its rustic setting or making damper in the camp oven?

With ample off-road parking, the motorized front gate provides privacy and security while the dog proof fence keeps your fur child safe and contained. And if your pooch needs a time out from the kids, they can rest up in one of the 2 kennels in the fenced pen.

Pets are welcome at Fuimus but absolutely no pets inside the house and guests are required to clean up behind their fur children.

Challenge your family to a game of Pictionary on the extendable coffee table while being enveloped in the plush leather sofas of the main living room. Need to spread out more? Put your feet up on the chaise while being served a cocktail from the bar, which houses a bar fridge and ice-maker.

Let the kids discover the large toy hamper containing dress up clothes and other fun items to keep them occupied while you switch off.

For some time out, get comfy in the recliners or the snuggly corduroy couch in the 2nd lounge room with 60” TV.

Conveniently the TV room is adjacent to the kitchen and dining area that are all warmed by the slow combustion fireplace. The dining table seats 8 comfortably and for the little people there is a tall toddler seat and a Fisher Price high chair that can be raised to table height or lowered to ground level.

Cook up a storm in the well appointed kitchen with oodles of bench space, a 90cm induction cooktop, 2 electric ovens, a large microwave, family sized fridge and freezer, dishwasher and Nespresso machine.

There is no shortage of appliances, serving platters, crockery and cutlery, cooking and baking utensils, cake tins, casserole dishes, plastic storage containers, tea towels and children’s plastic crockery and cutlery that is in easy reach for them.

The master suite with its walk in mirrored robe and wall mounted TV is perfect for a sleep in when you close the plantation shutters, and has French doors that lead out to the patio and pool if you like to remain part of the action.

The bright and roomy ensuite is newly renovated and has a large bath that will easily fit 3 children and bath toys are within easy reach. Once the kids are in bed, picture yourself soaking in a bubble bath with a book and glass of champagne. In the warmer months, open the windows for a view of the private garden.

The quaint second bedroom has a beautiful brass double bed, built in mirrored robe and a view to a garden of palms.

The huge third bedroom with its TV and queen sized bed has a sofa bed and a good quality portable cot with nappy changing platform and mobile of soft toys. You can raise the base of the cot for newbies or lower it for bigger babies. Feel free to use the stroller in the wardrobe.

Kids will fight over the top bunk in the kids’ room that has one set of bunks as well as a single bed and trundle. Pop on one of the 2 bed safety guards to prevent them falling out of bed, read them a bedtime story from the selection on hand then leave the night light on low

The newly renovated family bathroom also boasts a stand-alone bath, as well as shower with rain head, and hand shower.

If you really must do laundry on your holiday, the 10kg washing machine will ensure you get through it quickly. Hang your clothes in the fresh air on one of the 2 clotheslines or take advantage of the condenser dryer. You will easily spot the iron and ironing board.

Is Fuimus your kind of getaway? Well come on over!

ADDITIONAL INFO:
Feel free to take advantage of the magazines & coffee table books, games and jigsaw puzzle

Lovely home, suitable for both warm and cold weather. As it was a little colder when we visited, it was great to have the the fire pit.

A really great place for a family get together. Even with six adults and three kids there was plenty if space, we all loved it.

We really enjoyed our stay at Warren and Carole's house. As a family get-together for 6 adults, we all had heaps of room both inside and outdoors. We loved the bonfire outside and the ambiance of the lounge room area. Everything we needed was available for cooking. The house felt very comfortable and welcoming as soon as we stepped inside. Kids would just adore the outside play area. I've already booked a return visit in the summer.

We are keen travellers with a preference for motorcycle tours - one of our favourites being to Everest Base Camp in Tibet. We also love to travel around this magnificent country of ours with our caravan and 4WD.

We love to meet other travellers and hear their recommendations for special places to visit.
