Nothing not to like about this quaint house. Unfortunately for us our stay was only an overnight but would have loved to stay longer

Great host and communication.

Everything there for a great holiday.

We were a 'group' attending the Mt Gambier AG show and found the house and studio ideally located a half hour drive from the venue.

Our family with 2 small children stayed in the studio which allowed privacy but with all of the necessary facilities close at hand.

The house has everything in it for visitors and the iron and board where much appreciated. We used the washing machine too, it was great.

Heating with the split systems kept the house warm and it was the same in the studio. If heating has been a problem in the past, it certainly wasn't evident to our group.

We had dogs travelling with us, so the secure yard and garden, also the undercover area were ideal for keeping the animals entertained and dry.

The driveway amply allowed us room for a large van, trailer and an SUV.

The house is close to restaurants, shops and right on the waterfront.

Our only adverse comment would be the mouldy, musty odour when first entering the house. We aired the house regularly and it was fine for the duration.

Excellent property

Suited our needs wonderfully, the back undercover area was great and perfect for our dogs. The only down side was it took ages for the house to warm up, thank you for the electric blankets.
