My wife and I, with our 23 month old absolutely loved our 2 night stay at MR Hideaway. It is located 5 mins away from MR town, and the ample space between the cottages on the 'farm' was fabulous for city dwellers like ourselves.
We were greeted at 3pm by Julian who showed us to our Studio Cottage (smallest one). We knew right away that we have made the right choice to stay here. He shared that 2 Singapore families couldn't make it because of the QF grounding.
For the past month, I was searching for farms to stay in W.A. Most of the rooms look dated until we chanced upon MR Hideaway at their website. The rooms are very new. Looking at the numerous positive comments by fellow Singaporeans on Tripadvisor, who are usually fussy but wants good value. We decided on this place!
The studio is already big by our standards, and I wonder aloud why would anybody stay in a hotel when they can easily get this. The rooms are modern, clean and very comfortable. It has got a stove, microwave, fridge, cutleries and cookware, very easy if you self-cater.
They are still in the midst of finishing 3 more cottages. I believe making it a total of 8 cottages in a really huge compound.
Even though it is not a working farm (not many farmstays are anyway), it was still quite an experience to get up close with the animals. Animal feeding was fun even for the adults. This is probably the only time you get to see the other guests in their cottages faraway !
There is so much space for our active son to run around and play safely.
Julian isn't the smiley sort. But he does have got a heart of gold when he introduced our son to Patsy, his adopted joey. He also help correct the amount that we had already paid as it was FOC for our 23-month old.
On the day of departure, I had a flat battery, and I approached Julian for help. Without any hesitation, he and his 3 gung-ho ladies, helped push the akwardly parked car out of the porch and jump-start my car from his van.
He is passionate about his place and showing the guest all the wonderful animals.
If we are coming back to the MR region, we are definitely coming back here again !
