  • Everything about this property and the owners is fantastic! The house was a great set up with everything we needed and more. The kids loved being outside on the play equipment or in the large games room. The beds were really comfortable. We loved the peacefull atmosphere.

  • Loved the large house. So quiet in the bedrooms while people are in the living space. The family which owns Galwiji Homestead are lovely to deal with.

  • It was great for all the family to be able to stay together. We enjoyed the quietness and space in our home away from home. We can’t think of anything that could have made the experience better for us.

  • Only good things to say about our stay here. The Pryors’ place is exactly as it’s described – a real farm homestead. Surrounded by nature, the house is also spacious inside, the place can accommodate large families or group.
