Tania & Leigh Cheyne - Owners
Tania and Leigh purchased The Farmhouse in 2016 and spent a year renovating with a view to using it as their primary place of residence. But when it was finished, they realised it was too beautiful to keep from the world, so they opened it as luxury, boutique accommodation in May 2017.
As a qualified real estate agent, interior designer and property stylist, Tania was the project manager throughout the renovation period and also responsible for the stunning Hamptons style interiors at The Farmhouse. Having renovated and built a number houses, she says The Farmhouse was definitely her most demanding but most rewarding renovation to date!
Leigh’s international entrepreneurial background enables him to identify opportunities and develop businesses from the ground up. Leigh has been instrumental in driving The Farmhouse and fostering our international relationships.
Ela & Brian Chamberlain – Hosts & Property Managers
Our property hosts, Ela and Brian, have worked at some of the world’s most luxurious properties, including the five star, Vatulele Island Resort in Fiji, which was named Small Luxury Hotel of the Year in 2000.

They have also provided their considerable expertise to Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort and Laucala Island (one of the world’s most exclusive private island resorts) before hospitality stints in both New Zealand and Australia.
Their understanding of delivering an intimate, personal experience to every one of our guests has guaranteed our 5-Star reviews, return customers and a strong word of mouth network.

The Farmhouse Eumundi's History
Through the extensive, year-long renovations carried out on our beautiful Garth Chapman Queenslander to the meticulous Hamptons styling, The Farmhouse Eumundi has been designed to ensure you enjoy every moment with us. We encourage you to do as much or as little as you like!
Built in 2001, our beautiful Queenslander was purchased by Tania & Leigh in 2016. After a year of renovations, our stunning, luxurious Hamptons styled boutique accommodation opened in May 2017.
Perched high above its 23 acres, the main farmhouse with its signature double-entry grand staircase, watches proudly over its animal family - Spot the Horse, Kaspa, Golda and Ozzie the Alpacas, Ivory and Pocahontas the Chickens.
Your hosts, Ela and Brian, will be on site to welcome you and assist throughout your stay.
Sunshine Coast Luxury
Enjoy a game of tennis, have a cool drink in one of our two summer rotundas, pet the animals or bask in the sun by the pool. When night falls, enjoy the lovely evenings with a glass of good wine and watch the stars start twinkling above.
Wake to birdsong serenade and a spectacular sunrise every day, breathe in the country air, enjoy a coffee on your verandah while watching the animals graze, or take a walk through the historic town of Eumundi to the world-famous Markets, followed by a dip in our pool.
A hearty farm breakfast is provided each morning at The Farmhouse which you can enjoy before you set off for the days activities. Our emphasis is on home-made and wonderfully fresh organic produce, locally sourced and renowned.
