  • If you like peace and privacy you will love it here. It is so close to town and Kensington Park .
  • The main bedroom/ living room is really spacious. It has its own deck with lovely morning sun.
  • The perfect base if you are here supporting a team. It is an easy 5 min walk to Kensington Park.

We have divided our large home in half (locked door between each end) and created an independent self-sufficient home away from home, for guests.

This is an extremely quiet and peaceful home. It would suit 2 couples or a family, however if it's just you, you'll be just as happy

While we will be next door for some of the time, we are very quiet and you won't hear us.

As we both work full time, you will have the pool, BBQ area and garden area all to yourself during week days. This area has a lot of space around it and enjoys all day sun. You have your own access through the ranch slider off the main bedroom, and your own key for your end of the house. Parking is right outside your door.

We have set up the guest accommodation to be self sufficient and independent. The kitchenette consists of a sink, fridge, microwave, pantry, toaster etc. All the facilities are in separate rooms, toilet, shower and the bathroom( including bath).Large groups are given access to a 2nd bathroom ( with another toilet and shower).

You will be warmly welcomed here and we hope you will enjoy the place as much as we do. We are mostly busy and active so tend to do our own thing allowing you to do the same. Those who like privacy will enjoy it here.

  • This was a fabulous place to stay, had everything we could possibly...

    This was a fabulous place to stay, had everything we could possibly need including a huge range of books, maps & brochures, even kids toys! It was spacious and well set-up and the fact that Leone provided some small breakfast items and milk was a lifesaver as we got in quite late in the evening after a long journey. Tucked away in the bush but still very close to shops etc, it was quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.
