  • A brilliant bach beside the water

    A brilliant bach beside the water. A peaceful time with the native birds as company. Well equipped and would heartily recommend.

    The love shack was so cute, they had thought of everything including snuggle rugs and mosquito nets over the windows! Such a tranquil spot, comfy bed, and awesome to be able to use the water toys. Very very keen to come stay again! Only thing I would do next time is bring our own supermarket food as the only eatery near is vegan (not a critisicm just an observation) and there is a bbq and cooktop available for use! LOVED this property!

  • The most stunning Bach we have ever stayed at

    The most stunning Bach we have ever stayed at. Extremely well presented, clean, and all the modern comforts of staying "at home", ie wireless Internet, flat screen TV, modern cooking facilities & a very nice shower. The location of the love shack is to die for, we seriously didn't want to leave. Cannot wait to come back again. Marc.
