Wonderful Property!Lyn Aitken - 26th October 2023
Earlsbrae is a stunning, grand home with park like gardens. Well equipped, immaculately clean and comfortable with lots of living spaces both inside and out. Highly recommend! Thanks also to Craig from Holidays Collections for helping out over the weekend with an issue with the key! Definitely want to go back!
Lovely large home with a mix of character & modern touchesJohn Drummond - 23rd August 2023
Really enjoyed our stay at Earlsbrae. Large enough for family & friends, private with 7 acres of land. Kitchen is huge as is the refrigerator, 3 dishwashers and plenty of crockery & glassware. Casual dining for 14 people with an additional large table off kitchen. The hamper and supplies were unexpected (never had them with other properties) but made you feel welcome and appreciate it was some ones family home and they were allowing us and wanting us to enjoy it.
Fantastic as alwaysShayne topper - 17th August 2022
Our second stay at the Earlsbrae in 2 years. Such a beautiful place to stay with family and friends. The place gives a real Tuscany feeling. The service from Holiday Collections is very attentive and helpful. The property manager Brennan is incredibly attentive should we have any queries. Beds are very comfortable and ammenities are clean. Would highly recommend. A lot of wet grounds this time due to the recent rain however we cannot control the weather. Cannot wait for the next visit

From the beautiful gardens to walking through the front door, there was nothing that didn’t have a wow factor, the stunning decor and artworks, each room was just perfect and beautiful. Thank you so much for making our special family occasion so delightful and comfortable in your beautiful property and for the lovely and generous welcome hamper. We felt like we were in Downton Abbey!

Majestic house and gardens!Susan Moore - 7th March 2022
The house was a perfect place for a birthday celebration with very close friends. Lots of places to gather and also places to go for quiet moments. Gardens were amazing. Everything we could want from fire places to billiard tables. On arrival we found every room to be a ‘wow’! We will look forward to coming back again.
Perfect for large familyChristine Brodie ex HRS - 9th May 2021
Earlsbrae was a fantastic property for out large family to stay and prepare for our daughters Southern Highlands wedding. We were very comfortable and there was plenty of space inside the home so as not to be on top of one another. The grounds and outbuildings were also perfect for photos and bridal party prep.
