The view is terrific and the morning kayaking is wonderful!

But the mattress is a bit old & we actually rolled together. The toilet is too small and a bit run down. There are actually 110 steps down to the house.

Stairway to heaven

  • 5 of 5

Need a city escape? I did, I found this beautiful home on the water, the decor offers a homely feel whilst knowing you are on holidays, the owners of the property were very easy to deal with, this property gave me the well deserved break I needed, I highly recommend this place to anyway wanting a piece of waterfront relaxation, a stone throw away from some of lake macqauries best beaches, close to an array of food options from pub grub, to a classy Mediterranean cruisine. The title says it all ‘Stairway to Heaven’!
