Great spot.

  • 3 of 5

The house is in an awesome spot, great views.

It is a bit worn, im not sure it fits the luxury title but it did the job.

A new dart board would be good.

Outdoor shower floor is pretty stuffed.

Handrail seems very low on the top deck.

Fabulous holiday home

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with another family - there was plenty of room for all 12 of us to easily move about and share quality time. The games room was an absolute high, and the sunset from the spa divine.

Wonderful place ~

  • 5 of 5

We recently had our whole family gathering at the Ski Cove house and it was fantastic!! The house has breathtaking views with so much entertainment plus a kid friendly Lake in our backyard.. The adults and kids all had a ball outside the house and inside.. My children have realised that they love table tennis and playing pool!! We were sad to leave ... Will definitely be back again... An extra big thanks to Kate as she was so helpful with any information about the area and things around the house!! Thank you Kate for making our stay so easy!!
