What a fabulous relaxing weekend! The 2 biggest highlights - 1) The outdoor bath - BLISS! Even in the pouring rain, it was magic. Bath was huge! 2) Megan's cooking! My fussy husband LOVED the Tarragon chicken and the salmon was delicious. Lovely continental breakfast and fresh scones on arrival. The apartment is tastefully decorated, has everything you need and Megan and Robert were very friendly, helpful and respectful of your privacy. Very peaceful and private (you are the only guests) in the countryside. Loved watching the alpacas, horse and cows in the fields. Short drive into Forster for everything you might need and great beaches. Can't recommend Laurina Estate highly enough! 10 stars from us!

We had a delightful stay at Laurina Estate! Megan and Rob were wonderful, understanding and generous hosts - Megan's cooking was delicious and the perfect portion sizes, the location is so peaceful and picturesque and an easy drive to beautiful beaches and towns where you can get anything you need, and the facilities (the outdoor bath being a particular highlight) were clean, modern, charming and made us feel at home. The wing where guests stay is lovely and private as well. We had Megan's apple crumble three nights in a row, we liked it so much! Thank you Megan and Rob for having us!

My partner and I stayed at Laurina Estate in early December and it's now somewhere that will always hold such a special place in our hearts and memory's. Megan and Rob are incredible hosts and went above and beyond when I was surprised by a beautiful proposal picnic set up, even capturing the moment for us :) The property is gorgeous with a private outdoor bathtub being a wonderful feature. The food was great, I had the salmon cooked to perfection and the big brekkie all served on the veranda overlooking the property and their animals - I loved the alpacas! The residence itself is private and has everything you need for your stay. The decor was really lovely and homely, making the two of us feel really comfortable in the space. Thank you Megan and Rob, everything was just perfection!

Absolutely fantastic spot for a country getaway. Located just 15 minutes away from Forster and minutes away from Hallidays Point. Coming from Sydney, we immediately felt relaxed. The property is very spacious, with a private patio. I would recommend getting a weekend package, so you get to enjoy a hot breakfast. All dishes are restaurant quality. The outdoor bath is an extraordinary experience. We got lucky with the weather and saw an amazing sunset while soaking in the tub. However, it is covered so you can enjoy it in any season. As we paid a bit for accommodations, I had high expectations. Let’s just say we were not disappointed. We had the most wonderful time!

Lauina Estate was a great place to go just to relax. The accommodation was modern clean and comfortable. The back veranda has a lovely view of the estate and is a great place to have breakfast in the morning and watch the sunset in the evening. The outdoor bath is a pleasant unique experience as well. Meg and Ron were lovely hosts.
