Close to town and just off main road so traffic noise was minimal. Lovely kitchen that opened out to verandah so could enjoy meals, coffees, wines , snacks etc while making the most of the best view in town. Beds,showers, lounge rooms all very comfortable and well set out. Parking off road and out the back also good idea. Were lucky enough to enjoy the company of the property,s owners. They are a delightfull couple and you can tell they take much pride in this property. Would and do recomend this as an ideal place for any one or family or group of friends to stay and enjoy what this beatifull part of the world has to offer. Enjoy Jill & Trev CHEERS

Great location to lock up the car and walk to everything. We have 3 boys, 12, 9 and baby. And it was plenty big enough. Loved the red wingback chairs to flop in at night. And loved that there was nice crockery(just felt like home), not some bits and bobs that didnt match. Only down side was both bedrooms only had double beds. My husband is 6'2" and found legs to be hanging out. Thanks for the chocolates and champagne which was enjoyed.
