Such a lovely stay... my husband and I and our three boys thoroughly loved it. Great spot, great place & great vibe. The house was very clean & organised. There was lots to do & enjoy with our children. They loved fishing on the lake. Thank you.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 4nights wish it was longer very peaceful and quiet location. The family enjoyed the ease of stepping out of the property straight onto the lake for canoeing, next time would take beach shoes as a bit hard on the feet in the water. Grassed area a bonus for the younger children. Plenty of room in the property with 2large queen rooms and with 10 people 3 toilets is great. Would definitely book again.

First time at a holiday house and would be extremely tough to beat. Owners are extremely kind, communicate well and welcoming. The place is stunning with 4 bedrooms all upstairs and amazing views. Extremely convenient with everything close by and a great spot to relax. Would highly recommend. Place was very clean and pest free.

Great family getaway

We took our almost 2 year here. He had so much fun chasing the ducks, playing by the water and exploring the backyard.

Hubby enjoyed fishing and got a few good fish. And I loved sitting around and relaxing!
