Great location, view and handy to everything, within walking distance. The driveway is VERY steep so if you are in a truck you have to reverse up, you MUST be in 4WD to do so. We did not have any hot water for 2 of the 3 days we stayed as the hot water had been turned off but once we realised it was too late. Why turn it off when the next guests arrive 2 days later??? Anyway lovely and clean bach, comfortable beds, great outdoor area and great to see native birds on your doorstep.
