The views are spectacular, the place is cozy, especially with the fireplace that provides gentle warmth on those cold Tassie nights. Jan's little farm is a beautiful spot and ideal for kids. We started every morning with greeting the animals, while overseeing the area towards the nearby lake, which was food for the soul. Every aspect of our stay was enjoyable, and Jan is a wonderful host, who is well prepared to go beyond what one could reasonably expect of a host. She is a warm-hearted person, always happy to have a chat and provide advice on what to do in the surrounds (of which there's lots!). If you think about staying at this wonderful place for a few days, make it a few days more as you'll otherwise regret not having added on a few extra days - time in this little piece of paradise flies. We visited with our little 10-month old boy, and the three of us had an unforgettable three days. We highly recommend Jan's place and hope that we'll be able to see her again in the future.

Nicholas and I were very grateful to meet Jan during our stay. Throughout all our experience using Airbnb, living with Jan is by far our favourite because of her friendliness, outgoing and motherly-like personality. We have never experienced host like her to bring us around to explore the hidden jems nearby. We took lots of photos and we enjoyed ourselves. Another favourite experience is having to play with Tilly, the dog, and the family of cattle ! Just remember to wake up early in the morning to play with them. Easily our favourite Airbnb stay. Thank you Jan :)

It's a lovely house set near to huntsman lake, an idyllic setting. Jan is a very thoughtful host who will ensure that the fireplace is ready before the guest arrive. She ensures that the home is conducive for the guest. Jan takes pride in her home and she has lovely farm animals who are dear to her. Just to name a few, alpaca, donkey, sheep, goat etc. it's definitely a good getaway from the city. A fantastic farm stay!:)

Jan's place is great. Me and my wife enjoyed staying there and loved every bit of the time we spent in Bonsmara haven. Jan is an awesome host and was very helpful with providing her insights about places nearby and helped us planning our days to make it more enjoyable. We loved everything about this place, especially the animals and her dogs, special mention to Tilly ;)

Wonderful farm view with mountains and lakes. Waking up surrounded by greens and blue sky. Lovely animals and energetic dogs are your companies during your stay. Amazing host that would put the fire on for you every single night just to making sure that you're coming back to a warm and comfortable home.
