    We've stayed in a lot of bookabach's, this one is definitely in our top 3. The views are fantastic. The Bach is decorated perfectly and well equipped, Dianne is a pleasure to deal with. Perfect all round, thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.

    One big room makes the living pretty communal but anyone used to staying in National Parks will be familiar with that. The layout and location make it a terrific place and I always wish we had more time to spend on-site.
