    Great central location good facilities only small negative things really were quite a few plates etc were chipped, no remote for Tv in master bedroom for the cost probably needs a freshen up paint work etc would be nice to have small things like dish soap available when you arrive too.

  • Lovely modern, spacious property

    Lovely modern, spacious property. Very comfortable and well appointed, comfy beds with nice linen. Perfect location in the middle of Russell. The only thing I would change is to suggest the gardener/maintenance guy use a broom instead of a leaf blower!

  • Very nice property, but we consider it was overpriced

    Very nice property, but we consider it was overpriced... Note that the pool, jacuzzi spa and BBQ area are a short walk away, and shared with around 20 other properties, so not as intimate or convenient as you may expect.

    Property/location were both lovely but both the meet/greet and departure were bizarre - especially the check out process which was more akin to a property inspection after a lengthy stay, uncomfortable.
