Second time here and will be back again. By far the nicest place to stop for Brisbane - short drive to the city but worlds away. Samford is a beautiful place with many cafes, to which Jo’s place is close. Add grassy paddocks, rolling hills and a campfire in a fire pit and you get the ideal place to stay and relax. Jo is incredibly welcoming and friendly. We just love it here.

Wonderful Spot!
We really enjoyed our stay at Joanne’s and would definitely stay again! Such a great part of Brisbane and for us so close to everything we need. A lovely peaceful setting that has been perfectly leveled up to save you time.

Peaceful nature stay in Samford
Mountain View Retreat is ideally located for exploring the Samford Valley. Quiet, spacious and private, backing onto a walking trail, with dogs and farm animals that are friendly and engaging, Mountain View Retreat is minutes from Samford Village, and about 20 minutes drive from Mount Glorious and Mount Nebo, with many other nature spots for hiking, walking, birding or kayaking nearby. Joanne is a great host, very helpful when we arrived and any time during our stay, and the site was perfect for us and our van. Picturesque, with views of the lush bush, great place to watch the local birds and have an outdoor fire with firewood conveniently available to purchase on site. I’d stay again, for sure - it was relaxing and a real break. Our first Hipcamp experience, and we are now spoiled.

What a beautiful peaceful property
What a beautiful place to stay. Greeted by friendly dogs, and a lamb coming to say hello, and chooks and geese. Jo was very helpful and welcoming. We would absolutely stay here again
