The kids loved riding bikes at the nearby park, I loved sitting on the back deck reading my book in the sunshine. The host was very helpful.

Well kept secret-we love it

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here on a number of occasions. It is equally good as a single, couple or family getaway. Well appointed house with a great bathroom and comfy lounges with good size television with disc player.Morning sun on the front deck and afternoon sun out the back-perfect chill-out zone. Great park for the kids and bike track just down the road. Just 2 minutes to great coffee, pizza, supermarket and good fish and chips. It's a winner, we will be back.
