  • Glenda and Paul are friendly and accommodating

    Glenda and Paul are friendly and accommodating. Our stay was comfortable and cosy and the bach had everything we needed. The bush bath was fabulous and just added to that relaxed feeling of being in the bush away from everything. The gardens are peaceful and unique and we cant wait to come stay in the Artists Chalet with our children in spring to see the gardens in their full beauty.

  • The bach was comfortable with everything we needed for our few days...

    The bach was comfortable with everything we needed for our few days away. Nestled in a lovely peaceful and tranquil setting and it was great to return to late in the afternoon after busy days with our family. The silence and stillness of this wonderful property was bliss!! Thankyou Paul & Glenda, we'll be back again.

  • Paul and Glenda are wonderful hosts

    Paul and Glenda are wonderful hosts. The property is peaceful, and we were blessed to be there when the many Rhododendron were in flower. Favourite memory though for us was the heated out door bath tub. Magic.
