Perfect relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! Exactly what is needed for a quiet and peaceful escape. Property is lovely, clean and with everything you need. Surrounded by bush, a very leisurely walking track and lots of wild life. My partner and I spent a wonderful 2 nights here and wished we could have stayed longer. We will be back.

Great getaway experience - not that far away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to get away and just relax with plenty of low impact touristy things and restaurants to try in region. Our two kids 11 & 8 made comment that they were sad to have to go. Inside wood fire kept atmosphere and temperate warm and comfortable. Everywhere you look you see trees & trees & trees. Loved the serenity.

Loved the tranquility

Nothing better than getting back to nature, with an added bonus of numerous wildlife sightings. Hosts couldn't be more helpful. Loved it and will be coming back.

A perfect break from city life

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you'd want for a peaceful / relaxing time out. The property is beautiful with plenty of activities available on site such as, bush walks, tennis, basketball court and an outdoor fire pit. A huge bonus was that it's very child friendly which was great for our 2 year old. Kim (the host) is very lovely and you feel welcome straight away. We really enjoyed our time here and can definitely see ourselves going back.
