The May Family
We are Andrew, Tania and James May.
In late 2017, we were trying to find accommodation for friends in the Mount Barker region and realised there was a lack of accommodation in the town. At the time, our business, Grandview Farm Homes, had an ex-display home rented out to a long term tenant and a display home used only on weekends.
When the tenants vacated the Flaxley Road home at very short notice, we seized the opportunity to provide two luxurious homes for people wanting to stay in a very centrally placed location in the Adelaide Hills.
In a very short time frame,Tania selected all the furniture and décor and set up the homes for guests. Our son James had just finished year 12 and was at a loss with his career direction. He decided to have a gap year and help set up the accommodation business, doing the marketing, online booking sites and social media promotion.
Grandview Accommodation started in March 2018 and instantly took off. In early 2019 after being overwhelmed by bookings and a lot of feedback from our guests, we decided to divide the Flaxley Home into two fully renovated, luxurious apartments, allowing us to provide more accommodation options for guests.
With further development plans to have a fourth apartment operating in 2020 we will be able to provide even more options for people wanting to stay in the rapidly growing Mt Barker region.
Grandview Farm Homes build high quality luxurious re-production weatherboard homes in the Adelaide Hills and surrounds.
Established in 2007, Grandview Homes were the first and original boutique home builders to build high quality, luxurious weatherboard homes in South Australia.
Their homes are all individually designed and crafted to an incredibly high standard and are designed to capture the grandeur,charm and ambience of a by gone era.
The accommodation homes and apartments were originally Grandview Display Homes and were both award winners in the Best Display Home category at the SA Master Builders Awards 2011 & 2016.
