  • Beautiful little hide a way

    Beautiful little hide a way. Spotless, homely and friendly. A great romantic spot too. Right off the beaten track where you can relax and get away from it all, unless you want to cycle of course.

    Loved this place,great location on the river away from it all but close enough to enjoy Able Tasman. Ducks,chickens and great bird life. This Bach is clean and tidy ,tucked away from the main house. Private with amackulate lawns and fruit trees Great view. Only regret about staying at this private retreat was we didn't stay longer.
