Situated on a small acreage, overlooking farmland on the outskirts of Maryvale, half way between Brisbane and the Stanthorpe Wineries and with sweeping views of the Goonburra Valley, Ombu is the perfect base to explore the Scenic Rim and Southern Downs, or chill and watch the wild life and gaze at the Milky Way. Only 10 minutes from Cunninghams Gap and Main Range National Park walks. A short walk to the historic Crown Hotel.
Open plan Lounge, Dining and Kitchen. Sweeping views through large bifold doors, allow easy viewing of birds and wildlife. Nesting boxes for the Rosellas and Red Rumped parrots ensuring regular visits from these delightful birds. A local bird enthusiast tells me he has spotted close to 150 different bird species. There are usually Swamp wallabies on the back lawn in the evenings and early mornings and there is a spotlight provided for nocturnal wildlife spotting. Ombu is also far enough away from the city lights to view the Milky Way clearly. Retro furnishings. Ceiling fans and a pot belly stove.
Call me if you have any questions or issues.
The Hot water system is solar and very efficient, (be aware the water is hot hot), but should there be very cloudy days then there's a power booster to switch on.
Please use the compost bin in the kitchen for any organic waste. Food scraps in the bin will attract ants into the house. (One of the down sides of a clean environment and country living)
There are games, puzzles and spare blankets in the draws of the second bedroom single bed.
There is a hammock that can be attached to the porch posts. Air bags (like bean bags) for outdoor lounging. They are in the large basket by the bifold doors.
• Be mindful of water usage, we are not on town water & collect our own.
• All sanitary items in the bin, we are not on town sewage but have a septic.
• Leave the house locked, windows shut & lights, heaters & fans off.
• All organic waste in the compost bin & place in the fridge when leaving.
• Close the gate when leaving.
If there are any queries or issues please contact me by phone.
