Amazing golf course views in a quiet cul-de-sac

 Good location for mountain bike riding. Family friendly with excellent collection of toys, a high chair and a cot. A verandah with lounge room doors fully opening to verandah and golf course views from verandah. Nice surprise of black-out blinds in bedrooms as we had changed a couple time zones. Well equipped kitchen and herbs in the garden! Wifi internet was handy and plenty of DVD's and board games kept the kids busy when we weren't out exploring. Excellent water pressure, wow! A lovely stay. 

Bike to the forest and mountain bike trails

 It's like a home away from home. We loved our stay and definitely suited our family holiday. Would recommend to all. 

Seventeen Sala, Centrally located

 Bach - lots of space, large dining and outdoor tables, well presented, large outdoor area, modern and functional kitchen and table tennis and darts in garage. Location - proximity to mountain bike trails and city centre. 

Escape to family holidays in modern sunny house

 Ideal property, modern facilities spacious and comfortable. Conveniently located – we had a fantastic time. Thanks again ? 

Lynmore Rise Retreat

 Very tidy place and close to the city centre. We would like to rent this place again in the future. 

Bike to the forest and mountain bike trails

 The location is perfect - half way between town and the Redwoods. The house is perfect for what we wanted. Until next time......
