There is lots of off street parking and room for all your water toys, mountain bikes etc. Everything you need for an awesome stay is here.

The house is nestled on a large gated section so there is plenty of green space for back yard cricket and volley ball; or enjoy BBQ's and fish n chips, with a local wine or a beer, out the front on the deck overlooking the lake.
