My fiance and I, plus our dog stayed here for a mid-week getaway in October. The house is right on the canal which is lovely. We were able to interact and feed magpies, ducks, pelicans, night herrons and crows! It was an absolute delight. There is a canoe there which will fit 2 adults plus a dog! We rowed thru the canals which was great. We also took the paddle boat out which easily fit all of us too. The house is in the older style (maybe 60s and 70s decor), however, everything is in brand new condition, and there is new style furniture. It is so neat and clean it is unbelievable. Airfresheners in every room make it nice smelling too. Roller shutters are a nice touch because we like sleeping in. It is really nice to watch the sunset from the front of the property, as there is water there too! Dogs are also allowed to walk around the lake here. Heaps of outdoor space, and there is a gate fairly close to the water so it is child and dog safe. This was one of the first holiday houses we have stayed that includes wi-fi, all though we didnt end up using it. There is a hot tub which was unfortunately not set up, which was disappointing, but not a big deal either. The neighbours are so friendly here, many have dogs and like to have a chat. Neighbour next door is really nice, and across the water too! very accommodating and welcoming neighbourhood. It was so nice and quiet here. The only nit pick would have been about providing some bug spray for the insects inside the house, but there was aeroguard provided for outside. We tried really hard to always keep flyscreens closed but even so we ended up with midgies and mozzies mainly in the kitchen area. There are lots of mosquitoes, but we only copped one or two bites across the 4 days because we wore the provided insect repellent. Bed in the master bedroom was nice and soft. Large shower head and really hot water made for a nice bathing experience. House was well stocked with tea, coffee, sugar and spare toilet rolls which was a plus. Nothing i hate more than paying for a holiday home and they leave you half a dunny roll and you get caught short! its the small things that make it wonderful. I can recommend this place for a romantic getaway for couples with a dog, and probably kids too, as the house seemed well set up for kids.
