Exceptional accomodation

  • 5 of 5

The house cannot be faulted. It was spacious, modern, bright and spotless. The configuration and ample bathrooms made for an easy stay with a large family. Communication with the owners was easy and stressfree. Thank you for allowing to spend our holidays at Vintage Oars.

Amazing holiday house!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the New Year's Eve weekend and I could not recommend this house more. It's a great house and such a great set up with a huge entertaining area and lots of space on the front deck and backyard. Bree and Mike were great as well and always got back to my messages & emails very quickly. Will definitely be staying again in the future :)

Real wow factor

  • 5 of 5

Vintage Oar was exceptional. Real wow factor when you walk in and see the large living space. Big bedrooms that don't feel cramped even with a king bed AND a daybed (or cot for us). Everything is provided and the location is both secluded and an easy lakeside walk to the pub and town. Everyone loved it.

Best property in Milang

  • 5 of 5

We booked at the very last minute but Bree and her wonderful cleaner Rae were more than accommodating and kind. The house was well appointed and had everything you'd need. The bed was very comfortable and the view of the lake was really lovely to wake up to. The spa was also a real treat. We visited Langhorne Creek and had a great lunch at Bremerton Winery. And the locals at Milang were super friendly. Highly recommend this lovely holiday home.

Wonderful Family Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

Excellent family accommodation. We had three families stay in this house and the layout was perfect. Large living/dining/kitchen area with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We loved the wood fire and outdoor spa.

The house was perfect for children, fully fenced property. Children's plates, cups, cutlery in the kitchen. And lots to keep the kids entertained - Books, toys, dress ups, board games and movies.

Highly recommend

Hard to beat!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our few days at Milang. We have stayed at many

apartments/houses around the world and we think this is one of the best.

The house supplied everything we needed and the layout meant we could enjoy

all aspects of the house and environs. The house was prepared well with

quality fixtures.

We did however miss somewhere to put soap, shampoo etc in the shower.
