Truly unique and spectacular property! We spent 5 fabulous days with a family group of 10 in this truly unique and amazing home! The house was very spacious and comfortable with quality fixtures and fittings and was fully stocked with everything we needed. The caretakers were welcoming and on hand for anything if required but respected our privacy. The views, wildlife and serenity made for the most relaxing time. The drought meant the river was low but we were still able to enjoy a swim and kayaking which the children (and adults) loved. We cannot recommend this property highly enough and wouldn't hesitate to return!

Leanne’s place was absolutely stunning. We couldn’t have asked for a better long weekend. It was so nice to just unplug and explore the surrounds of Leanne’s beautiful home. Leanne’s place is equipped with absolutely everything you could need, I’ve never seen a better stocked kitchen. Highly recommended!

This is the one of the best holiday/getaway we had in last 10 years. As usual 4 (3 families less this year for us though) of our family/friends set out on a pre-Christmas journey to explore country NSW and for 2017 we chose a farm stay at World Famous Rotating house. The property in 40 Acre land is surrounded by spectacular and serene mountains and beautiful manning river. What a fantabulous place!!! Whole years work stress was relieved in 5 days. It was a divine and peaceful for all our family and friends and kids loved this place. Entire group went Kayaking in the river that flows beside the Rotating House - thanks to caretakers. We spent more than 3 hours in Kayaks and it was never enough. Dear Property owners and caretakers, thanks you for making our stay so memorable... Wishing you all a prosperous and great New Year 2018. Best Regards Vinod
