Great family house!

Thankyou Tracey and Gail. Your house accommodated our extended family beautifully. Plenty of space inside to chat and a massive back yard for the kids. Warm, inviting and quirky!

Owner's Response: Dear Sheila, Thank you for reviewing our property following your recent stay. We regret any inconvenience caused with the issues you mentioned all have now been rectified. We hope that the substantial discount we offered (and you accepted) as soon as you let us know of the problems you encountered went some way to addressing any concerns you had. Although the main house is an older home we generally find our guests are very happy with the accommodation given it has been freshly painted inside and out in the last 2 years, and floorboards all refinished. Best wishes, Gail from Martha's Retreat
