Hemingway’s on the Hill is a rustic private indulgence. Set high on the hill, bearing witness to the best of rural life. Cows graze paddocks, and flocks of birds fly overhead. Life is everywhere. Curated by Fifi. She wrote a story for the life to be lived in the space. Like the great man himself, thoughtful yet spare enough with surprises of artful collection. We escaped the city 15 years ago. We found a better life. Come and stay and write your own love story.
“Hemingway’s on the Hill is such a wonderful place to stay, this was our second stay & we will certainly return. Is such a relaxing place & beautiful view, we love the outdoor tub & fire pit. Breakfast supplies, tea & coffee selection are fantastic and lots of extras to make cooking easy. Exactly as listed & you won’t get better value. Thank you Fifi for being a 5 star host.”

“What an unexpected little treasure we found! Roger was very welcoming and showed us around the place. Great hospitality, beautiful grounds- we sat under their massive tree for about an hour to relax in the cool and to listen to the birds. Roger kindly put on the aircon before we arrived. Breakfast was organised for us and placed in the fridge to cook the following morning - bacon, eggs, fresh bread, tomato, orange juice, milk, butter & jams. I would recommend this accommodation for a couple who likes to be surrounded by beautiful country scenery. Upon reflection, we should have stayed another night.”

“True hospitality, etiquette and attentiveness is a rare thing these days - and Lilia & Mark excel in these areas. The space itself has a beautiful rustic charm (on the elegant side), with a beautiful view. Inside, I loved the Egyptian cotton sheets & everywhere you look is full of thoughtful touches, an eclectic mix of tasteful furnishings that are put together so well. We also treated ourselves to their 3 course meal, excellent value for money, with silver service - our hosts even cared that it had the right amount of spices etc to our liking. Honestly, I can’t fault this place...and beautiful Phoebe, their giant but gentle dog, won the award for “best hospitality” with my daughter! Terimah kasih to Lilia & Mark 🙏🏽”
