    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.

    Wonderful,relaxing farm stay with all the mod cons. Taranutty was a pleasure to explore and the Drapers were truly accommodating. Recommend this getaway for young and old who want a piece paradise for a couple of days.

    A peaceful quiet place in lovely surroundings. About 10-15minute drive from the nearest beaches but not an issue really. Sweet surroundings and the lovely fruit trees were such a treat.
