Excellent and cozy.

We loved our stay at the cottage. The cottage has a warm feel to it and totally cozy. It felt like a home away from home. And the kangaroos came to visit!

Relaxation at its best

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Links retreat.

On a chilly Victorian weekend, we were welcomed with a toasty warm fire, with an abundance of wood to keep us warm.

Nestled by the golf course in a peaceful part of town, we were able to enjoy each other's company, and tour the area.

Beautiful gardens and surrounds.

Thank you Merren and Peter.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

You feel welcomed from the beginning... the owners are really friendly and the house is really comfortable. I had 2 dogs with me and didn't have any problems even considering there was no enclosed yard area. They loved it too!!
