We aim to provide guests a high end luxurious stay whilst engaging with natures beauty and its surrounds. The stay may involve a curious stroll around the grove and/or discussing the processes of running it with the farmer.

On the Grove:

This unique luxury experience is situated privately on a fully functioning Olive Grove.

Each season brings its own excitement in the journey of the olive tree. As guests of the Grove you are encouraged to join in as much or as little as you like. If you prefer to sit back and relax – then ignore the workings behind the scenes and indulge your senses in your secluded villa.

May – July is generally our picking season. The grove is busy with hand picking and pressing of the fruit. Join in and learn how this process is managed with the opportunity to taste fresh pressed EVOO – a taste sensation never to forget.

August – November the grove is in full swing with pruning and tree maintenance. The leaves are carefully selected and hand picked ready to make Olive leaf tea and Olive leaf extract.

All Year Round  we are busy making hand made soaps, lip balms, dukkah, and general maintenance of the Grove – never a dull moment!

The guest has much on offer with a stroll into town or walking the George Bass Coastal walk with the added benefit of the walking track passing directly out the front of our property.

Our guests may want to indulge in the local food and wine trail or maybe a days surfing, followed by the penguins then dinner. There is much on offer and Mel and I will do as much or as little as our guests request.
