Loved the camp fire at night. Great value with the inclusion of a meat pack with 2 nights accommodation. Good brekkie included too.

The hosts were completely brilliant - they were very generous with their time and knowledge and went out of their way to give us access to all the local knowledge in regards to things to do, the animals on the farm and the good fishing spots. Drained all the stress away! Charming and wonderful.

This is a beautifully presented relaxing cottage on a pristine family property. It was a perfect 'baby proof' place for our young child with animals to see and lovely walks. The owners were welcoming and then left us to ourselves, much appreciated. And there is a very friendly pooch who visits!

Most perfect B&B we have ever stayed at. Personal touches by the hosts and stunning quality furnishings are everywhere in this superb cottage. The produce provided was absolutely delicious. We just cant say enough. Perfect!

The place is fantastic & the host family are lovely. The chook pen (it is a farm after all) was a bit smelly in the morning, but the air-con sorted that out. The road in (dirt & gravel) is possibly not suitable for ordinary caravans or cars with lowered suspension. This said, we are definitely going back!!

The house was very clean and the air conditioner, very effective with the really cold nights - one night was 0 degrees! The hosts had made an extra effort to buy vegetarian food items and we appreciated that. The books left for guests to read through reflected the local context eg River Murray and that was great!

Words would never do this property justice. Toora Views HAS to be experienced to be understood, otherwise it just sounds like a cliché. In saying that, the cottage is magnificently built, the furnishings - stunning, the supplies - lovingly thoughtout and the hosts - just really nice people. This is the type of place that you never want to leave, until you realise that if you don't go home then you can't come back.....and you want to come back again, and again, and again........

The four of us enjoying a Glass of wine early evening watching the beautiful sunset. The brilliant night sky, seeing a shooting star. Then cooking up a storm on the Barbeque & eating it by candlelight as we sat around the beautiful redgum dining table.

Accommodation was just beautiful. The entire guest house was furnished with redgum and all had been hand crafted the owner/s of the property. Leadlight windows throughout, and all the facilities were 5 star. Absolutely nothing was overlooked. The owners of the property were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Just a pity there wasn't a view of the Murray River.
