 Loved that it was fenced for our toddler, was able to house 3 families altogether and you just can't beat the location - Right in town across the road from the pools! 

 Many thanks Bayne for yet another great stay. I highly recommend this property as it is so well located to restaurants and the Springs - we wandered over the road in our togs and jumped in! We also love the history of the place as it accommodated the Post Master and is right next door to the historic Post Office - now a Robbies pub (which isn't flash, but is cheap and cheerful. Thanks again! 

 Arrived place was lovely and warm . Was just My mother and myself but would be a great place for big families . Heaps off room and lots of beds . Great location 2 min walk to pools just cross the road and you are there . Has fire but house was so warm we didn't use but saw lots of firewood if fire was needed . Thank you Bayne would love to come back . 

 Great location, plenty of room, lots of beds, great for families. 

 Outstanding property and so easy to book and deal with owners. Delighted with whole weekend. Thanks
