This large bungalow-style property is in grounds of a larger house, located about 100 meters away. Liesel, the owner, was in residence, as were her two delightful football-mad boys. She is a stickler for everything being right, and it was. She is also very helpful in giving advice when asked. A lovely person.
The bedrooms are a good size, and the showers/bathrooms very good (except – one of my bugbears – the shower in our room has one of those dreaded vinyl curtains which billow in and cling to your body!). The beds were uber-comfy, the bath-sheets excellent, the cooling fans very useful (temperatures were around 28deg.C). The very well-equipped kitchen we appreciated. A cool box was available for shopping, and pool towels supplied.
Being rather hot, we had a lot of outdoor living – the gas barbeque was useful a couple of times, the outdoor furniture comfy, and we ate and drank watching the red squirrels hopping about and listening to the parakeets flying above.
The location is a flat area next to a fast-flowing stream (far enough away to be no real problem if you have little ones), with a boules pitch, pool and trampoline (for the more energetic!).
Initially the approach is a little disconcerting, as it is approached by an unmade track – but this was no problem, and meant that peace and tranquillity were assured.
We were short of nothing we wanted, and would happily return someday to relive our stay.
