The house itself was very clean and well appointed. Kitchen has been recently updated and all appliances are new. Everything you could wish for was available and Rod called around to run through some of the appliances and TV etc to make sure we were easily able to use them. He gave us great information about Bright and its attractions, did 2 great walks as he suggested, the Canyon Walk which is at the back of the property and the more challenging Lower and Upper Eurobin Falls in Mt Buffalo National Park. We were able to walk to the town centre in 5 mins and sampled some good meals at the Brewery and Riverdeck Cafe. Our favourite coffee was a 5 minute drive away at Sixpence Coffee and also loved Blackbird Cafe. Fresh flowers, chocolate and bubbles are a welcome touch. Would definitely stay here again.
