  • Overall, it was a ten out of ten experience. The best part was the amount of space, the activities and the utilities provided. The communication before the trip ever started was very professional and friendly.

  • We enjoyed the cosy feeling. Loved the fireplace, plenty of room for the whole family. Heating great. I enjoyed running up to the highway for a nice peaceful jog.

  • Galwiji Homestead was very appropriate for our big group, comfortable, warm and most of all, ‘farmlike’. The homestead facilities and service in particular were great.
