Hi Dianne,

We stayed at Top Hill last night with our daughter and family (Bayne) and just wanted to write and say thanks for lovely stay.

The property is perfectly placed for a visit to Paronella and is in such a peaceful setting. It is just fantastic value as it is excellently equipped with great views, especially early morning and so comfortable for a family.

We will not hesitate to recommend Top Hill.

Thanks & best regards,

Hey guys, Mel Bowmar here.
We would just like to thank you again for letting us stay in your lovely cottage and entertaining our kids for a couple of hours on your farm. The kids have been able to talk of nothing else since we left.
Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.
