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. 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... 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.
Great property and very tidy. Ideal for families.
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.
One of the best places to stay in Russell! Pool and spa in complex, with use of BBQ etc. Short stroll to the waterfront. Plenty of parking. The cottage was in mint condition and super comfortable, highly recommended!
