  • Great house and great location, very quiet away from the road

    Great house and great location, very quiet away from the road. We made full use of the Kayaks and BBQ. Will def consider booking it again. Kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining (minus a dishwasher - but that's no biggie), beds were very soft and showers had great pressure!!

    We had a really fun time when staying here. It would be better to have a dishwasher and WIFI coverage in the main house (I have to stay near garden shed to get the WIFI connected as the WIFI extender has been set in the shed).

    Loved the property, we had a great time, thank you! With a big home like that tho and a few children, a dishwasher would be nice :-)

  • The property is great, lots of space for a family

    The property is great, lots of space for a family. Well equipped kitchen ,good bathrooms. Clean and tidy. Plenty of outside space. Lake access easy. We really enjoyed our visit. Wished we could have stayed longer. The owners family dog was a great success with our grandchildren too.which was a bonus for them.
