  • A very calm place with a unique atmosphere

    A very calm place with a unique atmosphere. Perfect for a couple or for a small family. We loved it

  • The property is well maintained

    The property is well maintained. The rooms were very accommodating for our family. The bathroom is a good size and all modern and clean. We liked the layout of the kitchen and living area. Having a deck was great for morning sun too (and evening). The fruit trees were fun to pick from and the kids enjoyed exploring the paddocks. We found we had to drive to any water or other spot, but that was quick and easy also.

  • Excellent place to stay, clean very handy location and very relaxing

    Excellent place to stay, clean very handy location and very relaxing. Plenty of space for our 4 legged son to explore and relax could not ask for more, I think if the place had wifi I would never leave :) Cannot wait to come back !!
