Great find near Canberra

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Christmas Tree Cottage. The cottage has everything you need. It's very clean. There's a great yard for the kids and the dog and we were surprised and delighted by the billabong - we all enjoyed swimming on the hot day. Keng is a lovely host and we really enjoyed our stay here.
