Great to be able to drive 1 hour from home to a campsite set up and ready to go, but still feel disconnected from the city and fully relax.

Everything we needed there. Lovely to arrive to a burning fire pit. Even though we had some solid rain, we stayed dry.
Very comfortable.

We spent a night at rent a tent 1 and we loved it. You just need to take bedding and food, that's all. Chris welcomed us and was very helpful. I would definitely come again.

It is an awesome place to stay. The hosts are attentive to any needs you have, but otherwise let you just enjoy their wonderful property. One of my sons is very ill, so the ‘rent-a-tent’ option was a great idea for us - so much less to pack and set up. The daily visits of the horse and donkey were great, made us laugh, and helped my son immensely. Would recommend this property without hesitation. Thanks Chris and Deb!

If you’ve ever camped sitting around a campfire wondering how good camping would be without the setup and packup…then this is for you! We had a quick 2 night getaway while only having to bring food, drinks, clothes and sleeping bags. Great views, fireplace (which was even lit and hot when we arrived!) and not a noise or worry from anyone else. Highly recommend for a nature reset!

This place is simply heaven. What I loved - not having to set up anything, great views, a wonderful fire pit, camp chairs, camp kitchen, chemical toilet and solar shower. During our stay it rained heavily overnight, but none of the water tracked into the tent and the campsite remained pretty well drained. The additional touches that gave the lighting a cosy feel were appreciated. Very peaceful, Chris and Deb are unobtrusive yet available if needed (always a pleasure to communicate with).
We took a queen camp mattress, but the stretchers and mattresses provided look very comfortable. We also took a log splitter, which came in handy for our firewood. The proximity to home and very good value fee makes this a wonderful regular camping option. We are looking forward to another stay.

Great fire pit, and ample firewood.A stunning view to wake up to, and excellent night skies when the clouds part.

Great setup if you're looking to go camping without the hassle of taking much of your own gear. Beautiful views, awesome big fire pit, comfortable stretcher beds, well stocked kitchen area. Only words of caution are that it is a short dirt road to get in to property and some parts steep although most 2wds could handle it. This also doesn't make it a great area for kids looking to run around but the kids with us loved the visiting horse and donkey so that's a bonus. It was also a great location for the many walks and charms of the area - about 50 mins from Brisbane.
