Quirky eco friendly property, close to town.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Salt Springs for a girl's weekend break for one night. The place was clean, warm and cosy on arrival. Lots of recycled timbers and metal work as a feature. Lovely decorated rooms and cosy beds. Small kitchen and bench to eat. Only one bathroom/toilet. Cosy lounge suite, although TV/DVD did not work, batteries old, and no trouble shooting instructions available. I replaced the batteries (at my expense) and it would still not work! This was quite annoying. Lovely surroundings otherwise, garden, lake etc. Very dark at night, and steep gravel walk to steps made it more suitable for Adults than a young family.

Owner's Response: Hi Belinda, We`re so sorry the tv control didn`t work for you! Its been replaced and hopefully next time it will be fine. Thankyou for your feedback on Salt Spring. We have since replaced our dining table to a much bigger(and somewhat groovier!) version that fills the space better. kind regards Dave and Cherie

Stylish property in lovely surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We stayed only one night, but it was very pleasant, despite the weather. We arrived on a cold miserable day, but inside it was quite warm for most of the time, although I feel the cold and found the dining area and upper bedroom a bit chilly- however for most times of the year this wouldn't be an issue. Lovely surroundings and deck (which weather prevented us from using). Comfortable beds. Steep steps between the dining/bathroom area and living/lower bedroom make make it difficult for anyone with a mobility problem. Otherwise I would thoroughly recommend.

Owner's Response: Hi Judi, Thankyou for your feedback on your stay. We`re so glad you enjoyed it. We`re looking at the steps between floors to see if extra hand railing is needed. kind regards Dave and Cherie

Great little find

  • 5 of 5

We snapped up two nights at the end of Easter - which was a lucky find. It was lovely. Nice, relaxed surroundings. Rustic decor and tastefully furnished. Bush setting was lovely too.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property with lots of cool artwork. King bed downstairs was super comfy. Property was very clean, and owners very accommodating. Property manager is also very helpful, as I got lost when arriving. She was only a phone call away, and very helpful.
