The booking process was very quick and easy and the staff were very efficient. The place was one of the best airbnbs we have hired. There were plenty of amenities such as pool, tennis court, dam, bikes, rackets, games and DVDs. It was however, disappointing that the spa is not in use for guests. We had a great time at this property and would recommend it to anyone.

Amazing property with spectacular views and amenities, the spa under the stars was just magic. We can’t wait to come back.

Charlotte Cassidy - 29th June 2020

The house has a lovely outlook and is a very comfortable place to stay. Three adults do have to stay in one room with a double bed-single bed. There are plenty of amenities such as cooking utensils, fire wood etc which made the stay great. The spa is also very nice and makes for a great stay for a group of friends.

Jen Hird - 26th June 2020

Amazing house, we had such a good time. Can’t recommend the house enough.


Cinamon Gifford - 21st February 2020

Group of ten friends enjoyed 2 nights at Araluan. We had an amazing stay. Furnishings & beds were comfortable and property very clean with plenty of room for everyone. Views from every room with manicured lawns, pool was great and had some great laughs on the Tennis court. Would highly recommend this property. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful Home

My expectations of spending a nice weekend away with a few friends was definitely exceeded by this lovely home down the south coast. The house is absolutely beautiful and the surroundings took our breaths away. Everything was supplied, movies, books, cutlery and cookware. I felt silly bringing all this myself! If you are looking for a nice place to get away from the usual day to day in the city, this is the place to go. Don't worry about packing anything other than clothes, everything is supplied and the markets nearby are great to buy cooking supplies. Thank you Aruluan, look forward to seeing you again!

Vivian - 3rd September 2019

This is the second year we have stayed at this property. We absolutely love it. It has everything we need. The setting of the house is perfect. The pool is beautiful and the views are magnificent!

Mark and Jayne - 3rd September 2019

Rural pleasure. Our group of ten friends spent 3 glorious nights at Araluan. We had a really lovely relaxing time in this well equipped home surrounded by well maintained and manicured lawns. The bedrooms are very comfortable with lovely white linen and soft towels, while the kitchen has everything and more that you would need. The views from inside the house are expansive with the morning sun glistening on the dam. There is plenty to do around the area as well, but not for us as we didn't want to miss one moment enjoying the tennis court and pool at this lovely rural retreat.

James - 3rd September 2019

Great property! We had a very nice long weekend. The house is large and comfortable. We would definitely recommend it as a place to stay.

Lovely Araluan. Araluan at Meroo Meadow is a lovely getaway for the extended family or friends. Views of rolling green hills with cows, country roads for walks, tennis court, pool, table tennis, fireplace and fire pit. The home is very comfortable for up to 10 guests. Thanks for a great stay
