  • This is a great location and a nice cottage with a touch...

    This is a great location and a nice cottage with a touch of the rustic - and very interesting with the alpaca herd and the building's packed earth construction. We enjoyed our stay very much and hosts were great (i.e. 5 stars). Note that the cell coverage is generally adequate on the property, but it is poor/unusable when inside the cottage itself needing you to go outside for reception - if this is important to you. Otherwise on the whole a great location and we may stay again in near future!

    the spa pool was great, the unit was clean, tidy and all that we needed. Loved being in the bush and being able to see the alpacas and hear the birdlife. Was a great place to unwind and relax - a definite retreat from the city.

    Lovely place, had everything we needed. Very friendly hosts - peaceful and pretty with the Al Pacas. We could also take our beautiful dog. We will go again.
