Not all would appreciate the feeling of isolation that I do. although it is only 5 minutes drive from town it does feel quite remote. Parking is a small issue and access requires some level of fitness. Personally, I love the location and the feeling of being nestled right in the bush while overlooking the water and hills. Comfortable bed and the perfect bedside view.
