Bend of the River is an historic homestead on the Gold Coast in the Tallebudgera Valley, just 5 minutes from the beach. On a hill overlooking an orchard with beautiful river views, the house will relax and delight couples and families, offering peace and serenity.

The space
Perched on a hilltop overlooking a picturesque bend in the Tallebudgera River, this classic "Queenslander" homestead sits amongst a rare fruit orchard, peacocks, geese, chooks and other bird life. Only 10 minutes from the beaches and 15 minutes to the Gold Coast Airport.

The fully self-contained home is ideal for a family holiday or romantic get-away for two. Complete with three bedrooms (1 king (or 2 king singles) 1 queen and 1 twin), each with French doors leading on to a wraparound verandah, it can accommodate up to four guests.
A large open-plan kitchen, living and dining area with sweeping views over the river, orchard and dam is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Two golf courses border the property on either side, where we will arrange discounted golf rates for our guests.

I'm a Sydneysider who now lives in Queensland. The farm has been our family holiday home for over 40 years. Every school holidays I eagerly looked forward to spending time here – waking to the birds, horseriding, swimming in the surf, bushwalking, collecting eggs, growing and cooking fresh vegetables. I have travelled and lived in Europe, Asia and South America. I recently gave up my career as a Solicitor in Sydney to escape to the serenity of the farm and Tallebudgera area where I now look after the property and work as a remedial massage therapist. I enjoy gardening and cooking (especially trialling new recipes using our exotic fruit – some of my recent successes have been yellow mangosteen cheesecake and black sapote tiramisu), teaching kids these skills and keeping a vegetable patch. I generally go to the local farmers markets of a weekend for the weekly shop and to catch up with the local producers. I love welcoming people to the farm and hosting friends and guests.
