"Thank you, a fabulous place to stay. This is a perfect place to retreat to. Quiet & so well set up with everything we needed.The garden setting, the art work & the extra, quirky outdoor bathroom means this place has the X factor.

We'll be back, Roger, Anne & Eliza

    We love this bach, and would highly recommend it to anyone! Its always clean and tidy, and has everything you need for a great relaxing holiday. Its an easy 5 minute walk to the boat launching ramp, and backs right onto a park. An added bonus is that it is pet friendly.
