Four acres of tranquility enables you to enjoy a small farm experience with native birds, bush & ponds. A beautiful wood fired hot tub overlooking the bay is available for guests to enjoy (weather permitting). If you like animals, this is perfect for you - alpacas, ducks, chickens and of course Ragdoll cats (and kittens during the season). Come share my little piece of paradise.

There are other accommodation options on the property, search Tumbleweed Downs.

The space

This comfortable farmhouse style home in a park like setting with plenty of areas to relax inside and out has a wrap around veranda giving many nooks to sit in or out of the sun. It's about enjoying it for what it is - a natural environment with the pleasures that animals bring. My aim is to promote a warm, friendly, stress free environment that all will feel at home in. There could be a bit of fluff or a leaf on the carpet - it is a farmlet after all. The home has two guest rooms available - this room with one queen bed and a single; the bathroom is shared with the other guest room (if occupied). Also available on the property, a studio unit (sleeps 4) and a camper (sleeps 2).

Home cooked farm style dinner and/or breakfast available by prior arrangement. Dinner (main and desert) $25 per person, cooked breakfast (bacon, fresh free range eggs and toast) $15, continental (cereal and toast) $10.

Guest access

Enjoy the entire property including the hot tub, walk through the beautiful gardens, native bush or farm paddocks with alpacas, chickens, ducks and ragdoll cats.

Interaction with guests

I love people, and enjoy interacting and sharing my beautiful property, but equally there is plenty of room for my guests to have their own space, including a separate lounge/living area.

Other things to note

Please understand this is my home, which includes my cats and animals. I vacuum and clean daily, but bear in mind it is a shared space, and is 'lived in'. I make every effort to keep it tidy during the day and would appreciate the same consideration from my guests.

Earlier check in possible by prior arrangement.

Dawn's place is the most beautiful place! It's out of the way so it's quiet but it's the perfect getaway spot. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try out the wood fired spa but I'm looking forward to it next time. I will definitely be staying here again.

Dawn is a great, friendly host with a lovely home. She took time to answer our questions and introduce us to all the animals (including the latest beautiful litter of ragdoll kittens). Very glad we chose to stay with her :)
