Karen's place is a wonderful place to stay. Located in a quiet street, it is fully equipped and has modern features. Karen's place is very much suited for families. Located close to many popular beaches. I look forward to going again.

Fantastic property!

5 of 5
My partner and I enjoyed a week at Fishtales and it was a great experience. Steve and Kaz are fantastic to deal with and were most welcoming during our stay. The property itself is right on the beautiful shore of Smiths Lake and there is everything you could need to make your stay enjoyable and very relaxing. We had a great time and would love to return some time soon we hope!
