Home away from home
We have been coming to Parma Farm since 2002. This place is heaven. Escape, recharge, reconnect, breathe.
Amazing location, views and overall stay. Our dog was also in absolute paradise! We just loved it and will be back. Thanks Alistair
Property was not clean and no air con. Not a farm stay as advertised
The property was a farm stead not an active farm, therefore our kids were extremely disappointed. The lake is a dirty cow bath and as we arrived they were happily cooling down and urinating in the lake.
The floor coverings were dusty and covered in pet hair. Being middle of summer the fans only pushed the extreme heat and dust around. The kitchen and bathroom were clean and tidy however the bedrooms were dusty as were the staircase. The sugar bowl was filled with ants also.
The location is central to the beautiful beaches & the kitchen is fully equipped for bbq’s and cooking. The property itself is well maintained and picturesque with amazing views and surrounds. The peace and quiet of the settings is lovely. The owners communication was speedy and informative which was also appreciated.
Given we paid above the average amount per night for two nights we were not impressed with the overall experience
It's very disappointing to read such an unhappy review.
The Sydney Morning Herald headline over these days was "National records melt in 'prolonged spell of heat' with more to come". It was almost unbearably hot anywhere but the beach. We have always relied on fans which are perfectly adequate in normal conditions. However we have an air con installer coming to the farm tomorrow.
I am surprised to read that it wasn't clean. We have great cleaners though prior to this stay I cleaned it with a friend as our cleaners were unwell. I think of my self as very clean, and my friend is obsessive but it looks like we missed some stuff. We have recently installed new carpet in the bedrooms which I do not believe would have had any dog hair. The rugs in the other rooms can be a bit more difficult to get everything out of but they are always thoroughly vacuumed.
The property is a 100 acre active farm. We have a small herd of belted galloway cattle, an appropriate number for the land size, which we breed. There are cows, a bull and calves. A new calf was born 2 days ago which I was able to pat while it's mother looked on. We also have chooks and a small orchard. Yesterday we actively herded the cows into the cattle yard to tag the new calves, and seperate the older ones. Some times the work required looking after the stock and maintaining the farm feels like too much activity!
When the cows are in the paddock that includes the lake it is their source of water, and they love to cool off in there when it's hot. Unfortunately they do wee in the pool sometimes. Given we are beef growing farm we do not have the luxury of blocking a whole paddock off from the stock.
Despite the odd cow wee, the lake is not dirty, it has a fine mud floor which means the water is brown. It's not especially inviting for swimming, though some guests do. It is fun for kayaking or paddle boarding which our kids love. Until now I've only every heard it called beautiful.
We are always trying to improve and usually find people love staying on our farm.
A perfect family getaway!
A serenic peaceful getaway perfect for any families. A rustic farm stay only a short drive from the best beaches Jervis Bay has to offer. Having the best of both worlds with acres of land around the cottage to enjoy nature and the sandy beaches close-by, it was a pleasant stay. The cottage was comfortable, clean and spacious for our small family. We would definitely stay here again.
We loved our stay
Lovely relaxing cottage , overlooking beautiful farmland . We wondered down to the back part of the farm and saw plenty of kangaroos . We even had a wombat wonder 2 meters from where we were eating outside . Beautiful stunning beaches about 25 mint drive so you get the best of both worlds . The owners are a delight ! Easy going and friendly.
Our dog benji had the best time so much so he spent the next 24 hours sleeping after our short stay .. he was exhausted from all the running around .
THANKYOU so much we will be back !
