  • Lovely location

    Lovely location. Convenient for the town yet in the bush with a nearby stream. The property was well kept but seemed more suitable for four people than any more. There are only four dining chairs and only four rather tall stools on the deck. Nowhere to eat outside except at a picnic table that is right amongst the trees and too heavy to move. Having said that we improvised two more chairs and very much enjoyed our stay.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback. I've passed these comments onto our team. It's great to hear that despite a wee move around of the chairs that you enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope to see you again in the future! Cheers, Phoebe

    Wonderful location. We enjoyed bird song and the privacy. Quickly warmed by the heat pump.

    Lovely new, cosy house with a great heat pump on a chilly winter weekend. The native bush just off the decking was busy with Bellbirds and Fantails feeding and were worthwhile watching. It was a quick, easy walk down to the village and back again. Lovely to stay at!!
