  • We had a fantastic weekend at this house

    We had a fantastic weekend at this house. We can't wait to go back again. The house is well set up. The kids had plenty to do and the kayaks are an added bonus. Thanks

  • Very well equiped property

    Very well equiped property. Great for 2 families. Lovely large deck and plenty of outdoor chairs for outside entertainment. Plenty of storage and space in double garage. Great to have second large fridge in garage. Would recommend the new Airstream Cafe caravan in the reserve a km down road.
