We had a lovely stay at Gary and Merril's place. They went above and beyond to ensure we got our money's worth from our stay. The accommodation was beautiful, comfortable and welcoming. We'd definitely recommend their place to anyone!

Gary and Merril gave us one of our favourite AirBnB experiences ever! Gary showed us the night sky, and we talked science, astronomy, politics, philosophy and then some with both Gary and Merril. We felt loved and cared for, so much more than one ever expects from an AirBnB stay!…

Our stay was fantastic. Whilst the skies weren't fantastic for viewing there is still plenty to do around Coonabarabran and surrounds to keep you entertained. The time we did get viewing was very interesting and Gary is very knowledgeable. Will definitely be staying here again.
