a brilliant stay

  • 5 of 5

Great property with fantastic views and location. Luckily the owner has the correct address on the map as I couldn't get in contact with anyone the week of the rental to confirm this. I'm not sure what would have happened if anything went wrong in the first couple of days on the stay as they were not contactable for the first couple of days with no alternative contact given, but it didn't and we had a brilliant stay. Would definitely stay again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

'A Lakefront House Escape' was truly the escape we needed. The view of the lake shimmering in the sunlight greeted us every morning. The house had everything we needed for our long weekend. It was clean, comfortable and the owners were a delight to deal with. We enjoyed our first stay there so much we went back for a second. Thank you!

Great House, Great View!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at A Lake Front House Escape. The owners were great to deal with and answered all questions prior to the stay. The house was larger than anticipated and kept in great condition.

Perfect spot to be close to the lake and not far from amenities (Supermarket, Food places…etc). I highly recommend this place, extremely great value for money and would happily return.

We had a wonderful time at the Lakehouse. Everything was there that we could possibly want and we were very comfortable. It was nice and close to Bonnells Bay Shopping Centre which made buying our necessities very easy. The house was lovely and clean and well maintained. Thanks for a great place to stay.

The Lakefront House was everything described and more. My family of children and grandchildren had a ball, even though the weather was not good. The house was fitted out with everything you could think of. Owners were very accommodating and we will be back!
