Mavis Kitchen & Cabins

Midginbil Eco Resort
Nestled under the shadow of Mt Warning (Wollumbin), this spectacular 400-acre farm is all about those iconic Tweed Valley views. Primarily a wedding venue, Midginbil doesn’t accept individual bookings. But if you’re searching for somewhere to host a school excursion or corporate retreat, this super scenic property can’t be beat. Accommodation is in cottages, bunkhouses, campsites, or lodge rooms.
Heartwood Cabin Farmstay
Chic contemporary design and sweeping Burringbar Ranges views define Heartwood Cabin Farmstay. Overlooking the ocean and Mount Wollumbin, this panoramic tree house-inspired abode comes complete with top-end amenities and sleek minimalist interiors. Throw a few logs in the fireplace or relax in a warm open-air bath as you soak up the view. Don’t forget to say hello to the roaming goats and Muscovy ducks.
The Coffee Roasting Shed in Stunning Carool
Set in a converted coffee-roasting shed, this tranquil bungalow-style building has been custom-designed to provide stressed-out city dwellers with a much-needed rural escape. Savour the scenery of the sea, mountains, and surrounding coffee plantation from the lounge room or deck. Inside, you’ll find homely furnishings plus natural materials like timber and slate.
Mt Warning Estate Wollumbin
The heritage-listed Mt Warning Estate is a stunning 300-acre working farm with sweeping Wollumbin views. Only two well-appointed cabins reside inside—one for couples and another for families—to ensure utmost seclusion throughout your stay. Full-sized kitchens, open-air tubs and outdoor fires amp up the luxe factor a notch. The multi-award-winning property follows a strict sustainability ethos.

The fabulous pet-friendly property offers a slew of engaging activities to pass the time. Examples include telescopic stargazing, board games, movie nights, a painting station, and more. For next-level indulgence, take a hot bubble bath with a bottle of bubbly under their rustic fairy light-festooned shelter.
A Warm Welcome to Hillview Dairy
Big groups mustn’t pass on Hillview Dairy, a traditional 1887 home with space to sleep up to eight guests. The charming wooden house harks back to the elegance of yesteryear, with antiquated furnishings and a carefree vibe. The best bit? There’s a lovely wine barrel-style plunge pool with sweeping Currumbin Valley views.
