Great location

We had a great stay at this property. The bed was more comfy than my own and our kids loved the backyard. The pictures and description are accurate and we thought it was value for money.

Old and not maintained

  • 2 of 5

Very strange. Possum living in bedroom wall. No A/C or even ceiling fans. Bathroom and kitchen very out dated. Only one window had a fly screen.

Beds were good.
