The location is wonderful and the room was clean, spacious and looked very nice. Unfortunately the place has no wifi which would have been good. Overall we were very happy, would definitely come back again!

The beds were comfortable, it had every amenity catered for. The views were spectacular in amongst the gums. We will definitely be back. Our host gave us excellent directions for the property.
