Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Guest house is fantastic!! we took family and bridal party for 4 days, during our wedding weekend. everything you need plus more is there. the owners are so friendly and helpful in booking and showing you around, yet once you are there, you are left to your own devices. the property is kept beautifully and the accommodation and guest areas are perfect. we brought food and beverages and that was all that was needed. ps the pool is fantastic and a great temperature and the lawns are great for a 20 person Bocce game. We will definitely be back!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We recently held our vow renewal/naming day at this beautiful venue and were not disappointed by the host's hospitality or the facilities available at the venue. We had a brilliant experience and could not have asked for a nicer weekend spent with friends and family. The kids also loved the large grounds and lovely pool. The wide sweeping verandahs are gorgeous and the Living Room is a lovely place for all to meet and greet at different times. The grounds and surrounds are just perfect. Thanks to Vicky and Imanz for going out of their way to ensure that our day was perfect, Sam.
