Max’s place is very comfortable and ideal for a couple. We were a party of 2 couples so having just one bathroom (with the toilet in bathroom) was a bit awkward, however the amenities were all very well looked after. The kitchen includes a portable double hot plate but no oven if you like to bake things. Although there is a hooded BBQ available as well which we did use. The kitchen/ dinning area lighting is a bit dim which we thought could do with some improvements for preparing, serving and eating. It was very comfortable for our short stay. I asked Max for a blanket instead of duvet for our bed and he happily provided one. The beds are very comfy and towels and sheets all lovely quality. As is the kitchen crockery and glasses. You might want to pack earplugs if you’re a light sleeper beacuse there is some road traffic noise during the night. The property is lovely and it was very pleasant sitting outside with the chiminea alight in the evening. I would recommend a stay at Max’s Nature Stay.
Very beautiful surroundings. Lovely stay and max was a great host.
Lovely brief stay en route north. Very spacious, comfortable and full of beautiful woodwork. Lots of lovely spaces inside and out, to sit, meditate or just be. The bed was so comfortable that I went out and bought a mattress topper for my own bed yesterday!
This place is so relaxing. You’ll be amazed by all the beautiful furniture and natural decor that Max has made. Definitely recommend staying here!
My husband, our dog, and I just stayed the weekend at Max’s place and it was incredible! A gorgeous place in a stunning spot, we had the best time just relaxing on the property. It was a perfect escape from our usually chaotic lives. Max was an amazing host and we enjoyed spending the evenings chatting with him and his beautiful children, playing games, and eating dinner together. Our dog, Oban, also had the time of his life running around the property with Max dog Dusty and a friend’s two golden retrievers, Kirby & Dyson. It was a fabulous ‘pupcation! I would highly recommended staying at Max’s! We are already planning a trip back in few weeks. 🙂 Thanks Max!
Lovely accommodation, although no chickens and veggie garden as advertised. Whilst the host was friendly, there was a lack of communication and attentiveness to our needs as guests. Dusty, the three-legged dog is gorgeous!
What a beautiful place to stay. Everything we needed was there and we were very comfortable. Highly recommended.
Very nice place to stay and get away from the city, had everything we needed and was the perfect place for our doggies to come visit as well.
Max is a great host & his Rural escape is both luxurious & relaxing. Great location. Very comfortable. Pet friendly is a big bonus. The resident dog Dusty was cute. The property is gun & great to explore. Nearby walking & 4wd tracks are worth a look. Will definitely be back.
Max’s place looked too good to be true. We locked it all in last minute and then the night before, we weren’t sure if we were going to be able to make it work with our dogs there, so I got a little worried while awaiting a reply & started to search around. There was some nice places, however for the deal you can get to stay at Max’s for … nothing could beat it! From the start I was scared to lose this awesome deal. Max is extremely friendly and accommodating. Nothing was to hard and if we needed anything at all he was happy to help. He was also encouraging of me to continue to be creative and this felt uplifting. He istantly did not feel like a stranger. My dogs may have needed more of an area on their own however it was still worth every cent with what we got. The atmosphere of the place and people just brings out the calm, peace and creativity. The woodwork is inspiring. If I lived near here, I would even be booking for weekends where I just want to get away. Absolutely amazing. Dont pass up your chance.
Fantastic, creative, comfortable, inspiring, relaxing place to stay and connect with the beautiful space that Max and his family have created. So elegant and calm and utterly gracious. We really loved out stay. The beds were super comfortable!!
Would highly recommend to any one looking to get out of the city and have a relaxing farm stay. Max has built and amazing place that has everything you need. Big verandahs, large property for the dog to wander around and endless hand picked macadamias.
My friends and I decided to stay with Max for a few days during our Easter road trip. It was a very good decision. Max’ apartment is spacious and very clean. Max is a very hospitable and considerate host. He even organized a campfire bbq. The place was well equipped with dartboard and board games keeping us busy at nights. We also collected fresh Macademias. We really enjoyed staying with Max and hope to return. Thanks Max!
Great accommodation and hospitality. Some delicious homemade provisions (jam, honey, eggs, macadamia nuts) provided with breakfast provisions.
A home away from home! Max’s property is spotless, nicely furnished, the bouquet of flowers in the room & the beautiful scent of Doterra essential oil is an added value. Max is friendly & answered my enquiries promptly. Spacious indoor area & great to get away from the flies!
