  • The property was very cold when we entered for the first time...

    The property was very cold when we entered for the first time with Mona in the middle of the day.Maybe the heating could have been turned on earlier.Once we had the heating unit up and running all was well. The land was constantly wet and because of that the grassed pathway from the roadside to the house was very slippery.Maybe a concrete path is required. Otherwise the group of 5 of us all had a very good holiday there.

  • Great location and very comfy bach

    Great location and very comfy bach. A really relaxing house. Hard to do a crossword out on the deck when a kaka is trying to get the pen from your hand..... Really enjoyed it. Lovely and quiet and close to everything. Would stay again.
