Wonderful Family Easter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay here for Easter!

The beds were nice and comfy, big rooms and the kids loved the spa bath.The outside area is well finished and included 2 outdoor sitting areas and lots of play space. Having our Easter hunt in the beautiful garden was magical. Two very happy families!

Will definitely recommend this to others

My partner, mum and I stayed 2 nights here and loved it. Would highly recommend. Merren and Peter you made our weekend. It is a beautiful house with amazing views.

We took our dogs and as long as you keep them on the lead it is great. Loads of roos jumping around the golf course next door.

Thank you Merren and Peter.

Excellent and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage. The cottage has a warm feel to it and totally cozy. It felt like a home away from home. And the kangaroos came to visit!

Relaxation at its best

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Links retreat.

On a chilly Victorian weekend, we were welcomed with a toasty warm fire, with an abundance of wood to keep us warm.

Nestled by the golf course in a peaceful part of town, we were able to enjoy each other's company, and tour the area.

Beautiful gardens and surrounds.

Thank you Merren and Peter.
