Lovely sunny older style holiday home - for three generations. Lots of inside outside entertaining area, and also two living room areas inside the home. Great upstairs lounge with lake view to relax and watch boating activity.

Large private elevated deck looking out over lake.

Walk down sloping front lawn to very sheltered beach with own jetty, so great with the small ones. Great back lawn for kids to play.

BBQ on roadside deck leading to back lawn.

Ample parking on site. 2 mins to boat ramp at Boatshed Bay.

    This is a great house for families and larger groups with it's multiple sleeping areas and separate living areas. There are great outdoor areas across the whole property enabling us to chase the sunshine or find a quiet space if needed. Water safety was important with our small children and we felt perfectly safe there. There is easy access to the lake although it is far enough away to make it unlikely for children to wander down to the lake alone. The views from the property are to die for!

  • The location of this property is to die for

    The location of this property is to die for. Perfect also for a couple of families. Found the outside rooms could do with a little TLC. We had a fabulous holiday.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for your comments. Glad you had a good holiday. The outside rooms tend to be neglected as they are only used in the summer, but your point is accepted.
