 The house was perfect, this was our second time staying there and would not hesitate recommending the property to friends. Large living area, privacy for adults, comfortable kitchen and bathroom. Great place to stay.

 One of the best baches we've stayed in, great value for money, Very well equipped, clean and tidy throughout. Would certainly return. Owners very nice to deal with too. Thank you. 

Absolute lake edge cottage

 Beautiful location, so close to the lake edge. Great spot along that road, close to boat ramp and playground. Bach was well set up with everything we needed. Had a lovely weekend with the kids.
