Milnthorpe Holiday Cottage

 Oh so quiet, just what we needed. Walk to the beach along bush walkways a pleasure and what a delight when you get there, golden sand, the ocean enticing you to swim- could be standing on a beach anywhere in the world.

Luxury Cottage with Spa Pool

 Great stay in a lovely rural setting (but still close to town). Owners were very easy to deal with. Cool place with great facilities. Loved the Spa. 

Sunny Apartment right in the heart of town.

 Beautiful apartment, tastefully decorated. Very easy stroll to town and lake. Very secure and quiet and even has a swimming pool. What a bonus to find an apartment with two large bedrooms with two separate bathrooms. We look forward to staying here again. 

Luxury Cottage with Spa Pool

 Sweet little outside room, big rooms, divine spa settled amongst the garden.
