  • Fantastic property

    Fantastic property. Very clean and nicely decorated. Everything you could possible need is there including coffee machine. Its in a quite location with bush as main back drop. Bed was very comfortable, excellent quality linen also. The driveway is very steep so we decided to leave the vehicle parked on the road side which was fine. Three minutes by vehicle to an awesome Japanese restaurant in town. I would highly recommend this property, we will be booking again! Wish we could've stayed longer.
