    Amazing location & view, cooking facilities however were very basic with no oven and only a BBQ grill (not hooded BBQ).

    The property has fabulous views, and is very spacious for four adults. We found the bed very uncomfortable, the shower pressure debateable, and a bench top oven would be a good asset.

    We have stayed at this property 3 or 4 times, it is a shame the lovely view is starting to disappear with the plantings growing up, the mattresses are hard and need upgrading and the shower pressure is very low. Other than that, it is a lovely spot, clean and tidy, with all the modern conveniences and close to town.

    Beautiful views, excellent location and a peaceful atmosphere. We really enjoyed our 5 night stay here. There was plenty of space for two couples and two children. The zones were divided up nicely so we felt like we had lots of privacy. The property is stylish and modern and the facilities were excellent.
