Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

'Lara' was perfect for our group - ample entertaining areas, a relaxing picturesque setting and very comfy beds. Notable inclusions were the tennis court, fireplaces (plenty of wood) and lovely gardens surrounding the house. Lindy, the owner was very helpful. We would all highly recommend this property.

Fabulous Lara

  • 5 of 5

We were a travelling group comprising multiple families - Lara was the perfect set up. The house is fabulously designed with separate living and sleeping wings, which meant morning lie-ins for parents not on the morning shift with the littlies. Heaven! The grounds provided many hours of entertainment - trampolining, tennis camp, bocce tournaments. Happy kids, happy parents, happy holidays.

Fantastic property with heaps of space and great outdoor areas for the kids to play. Wilsons Prom only a 1 hour drive away and plenty of other exciting adventures to go on in surrounding areas. Will definitely go back again.

Excellent property with room to move

  • 5 of 5

"Lindy" you have a beautiful home with lots of room for large families/friends to-gather.

The setting is lovely and my grandson certainly enjoyed the toy room and running outside on the flat well cut lawn. As for the adults we enjoyed sitting outside under the veranda and going to the local Walkerville beach and the beautiful lighthouse. In the evening we would light the fires in both rooms (plenty of fire wood provided) and play the wonderful boardgames from the well stocked games cupboard. We all agreed that we would return again.
