Private Bush Retreat

 Absolutely perfect ;D we will definitely be back again when we are back in Taradise ;D Inspiring work with the self-contained, eco-friendly bach! Keeping true to the nature that surrounds this beautiful bach. I would love to call this home! 

The Loveshack.Romantic secluded lake front cottage

 Had an absolutely wonderful stay. Beautiful spot and a sweet wee cottage with everything you might need. Found a wee gem at Okere Falls Store, great feed and German beer. Definitely recommend. 

Castor Bay Serenity - Self contained flat

 The owners, Sue & Phil, are amazing! Even though the apt is underneath their house, we didn't feel that and we had a complete privacy!!! The apt is very clean and you feel like you leave in the middle of the forest because of the surrounded beautiful garden. The apt is well equipped, and if there is anything missing they will immediately help you. Great location!!! Near a beautiful beach, supermarkets, shopping center and great restaurants. Highly recommended!!!!!
