lovely location

  • 4 of 5

house in quiet beautiful location . needs some serious furniture updates and heating ! the split system in main living area doesn't cut for such huge house winter . also worried running it when you read in house book after the fact you'll be charged for excess power ..........

Owner's Response: Thank you Debbie, charging for excess power is so that people don't leave the airconditioners on when not required and close windows and doors if it is on. Excess is way above normal use.

A real homa away from home

  • 5 of 5

Before we went back to Holland, after living in this area for 3.5 years, we found this great place!

It is really a home away from home! Everything you need and more you will find in this house The house is very clean and has everything you need if you don't have a "home" !

We especially loved the veranda, your kids can play without you have to worry about them! It a great place to enjoy the peach and quite! We really loved all the different birds we saw and even came up to us! Really if you need somewhere to stay for a short or long time this is the place to be! Also the house offer a lot of privacy ! Thanks Jan and Jim for making our final days in Australia so pleasant!

Awesome Family retreat !!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent family location. Close to a great park for the kids. Had an excellent time.

The listing description was slightly misleading there wasn't quite as much yard space easliy accessible for the kids as stated, however this didn't affect our stay in any way. The house was clean and well maintained with the basics of tea, coffee, milk etc provided which makes it easier when you first arrive. We were welcomed by the owners on arrival and once again about half way through our stay to make sure we were ok for linen etc. The theme parks are about 45mins - an hour away from the house which was convenient and only about 20 - 30 mins away from Southbank. All in all our stay was excellent and would recommend to others and we will be keeping this property on our "places to stay" list for our next visit for sure!
