    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, Amir! We're sorry to hear about google maps not pointing you in the right direction of the holiday home. That happens unfortunately in small rural areas. I'll pass on your feedback to the team so we can resolve this issue for future guests. Regardless, we hope you enjoyed your time away with us and we’d love to accommodate your group again at any of our Bachcare holiday homes for your next getaway! - Scotty

    Beautiful place to stay,amongts natural bush and stream. Our Pups loved it. 2min drive down the road to Sandy bay. Not too bad of a commute into town. The cottage was spacious and warm. Loved our stay very much. Thanks
