Easy and great communication with the host. There was a bad leak in the roof which was fixed on the same day we mentioned it to the host. The grounds of the house were a real highlight and well kept. We loved the big open lawns and loads of space. The house is lovely and spacious although we did find it grubby - for the high cost of the accomodation we would have expected better. there was a definite smell of mould in the bedrooms and and no screens to enable us to open windows and keep mosquitoes out.
Mirrabooka exceeds the description It was such a gorgeous garden which was in wonderful condition with the recent rains The home was very comfortable & stylish filled with many treats - including the large claw footed bath Our seven people all felt very comfortable with large spaces to relax and enjoy On a rainy weekend we lit a fire in December and had a very different early Aussie Xmas to our usual seaside one The gourmet kitchen is equiped with everything you need to cook up a storm It was great fun and we will be back with our friends and family We even had a house all decorated for Xmas which was so thoughtful Thanks again
A delightful lovely peaceful place to stay ... well equipped with few reasons to want to leave ... 🙂
Lovely house and beautiful gardens. Would love to visit again.
Mirrabooka is a lovely property with stylish interior and a beautiful garden. It was a relaxing stay.
Lovely spot for a weekend awayJohn - 9th June 2020
This was our second stay at Mirrabooka and it hopefully won't be our last. The house is charming and comfortable in a relaxed way. The three bedrooms are a good size and each quite separate - so would suit either a family or group of adults for a weekend away. The kitchen is large and well appointed with European appliances. Also, unlike a lot of holiday / weekend rentals, the utensils are plentiful and of good quality (including the kitchen knives). The large grounds make for a very peaceful and relaxing stay - just what you want when you get out of the city. The location of the house is perfect - set in a quieter part of the Highlands and near the charming town of Burrawang which boasts a good cafe at the General Store and a lovely village pub with good food and great outdoor dining on a sunny day.

Lovely stayNikhil - 26th January 2020
Thank you for the wonderful stay. We liked the spacious layout of the house, the comfortable rooms and are inspired by the beautiful gardens! We would love to return in the future.
What an absolute delight!Angela - 7th October 2019
We recently celebrated my daughter’s wedding in the southern highlands and needed a property to accommodate a big crowd. The online photos did not do it justice and Mirrabooka was even better in person. All the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was very well appointed and had everything we needed and more. The grounds were spectacular and provided the perfect backdrop for family photos and lots of room for the kids to roam. The fire and sitting room, which was quite spacious, made the perfect location to build some amazing family memories and the entire home was very clean. The master bedroom en-suite has the most glorious claw foot bath and was the perfect place to soak after the business of the wedding. There was also a great dressing room that was not featured in the online photos which proved to be a wonderful space to get ready for the wedding. We cannot believe our good fortune in finding Mirrabooka and we will definitively stay again. The house and it’s old world charm certainly did not disappoint.
Beautiful property - highly recommended!BecK - 4th October 2019

We spent a week at Mirrabooka. It is such a beautiful house with everything you need for a relaxing family holiday. Huge log fire, lots of places to relax with a book and so quiet. Our dog loved exploring the back yard. Will be back again.
