Best Holiday House we have ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this house and we can't get enough! This time we took the boat and watched the sunset on the Jetty. Judyth is the best host, very friendly and always there to answer your questions. This is a great house for a weekend with friends and we would recommend to anyone looking for a great getaway house!

Excellent Property; Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

This excellent property and awesome house made the perfect place to prepare for our daughter's wedding. The immaculate grounds allowed for some fantastic wedding photos as well. Enjoying a spa on the verandah whilst watching the sun set was so relaxing, as was fishing off the private jetty. The house was clean and very well equipped with linen, towels, tea towels, crockery, utensils etc. All we had to bring was food. Delicious fresh eggs daily from the chickens were a treat. The location of the property was quiet and private. We would highly recommend this property, and will definitely stay there again.
