    Lovely place, perfect for a night or two. The bach is well kitted out, cosy and warm. We enjoyed playing games and making the most of the beautiful bath!

    This place is so cool! The bath tub is magical, the outdoor toilet and shower are really special (and nicer than you're probably imagining too by the way) and the wood burner makes the cabin super cosy in no time at all. Highly recommend!!!

    We had a lovely stay at this little bach, and wish it could have been longer! A real oasis away from the city. Highlights were the outdoor bath under the stars, the bush walk with the dogs and the relaxed and welcoming attitudes of the hosts. We'll be back!

    We can stop talking about what a wonderful experience we had here. A very special place... that admittedly we are reluctant to share!! We plan to make this a bi-annual escape.
