    This was a great venue for a multi-family get together - lots of outdoor space for kids; the kitchen made it easy to feed everyone, bedding was great. And the views made for relaxing evening chats and star gazing as well as a morepork spotting. The location - allowed for easy drives to beaches and walking tracks.
