We had a lovely stay here - plenty of room for the kids & opposite the park is great. We woke up every morning with lorikeets in the backyard and kangaroos out the front. We had another family with us & were cosy but not cramped. Lovely homey feel. Many thanks!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.

We didn't want to leave after 4 days!Comming home from the snow, lighting the combustion fire for the night, sitting on the front deck watching the kids in the playground opposite the house, whilst saluting the beautiful sunset with a glass of bubbly...what a life! Seriously, plenty of room for 4 adults, 4 teenagers and 2 kids; huge air con for the mornings and special mention to the extras supplied by our hosts; the slow cooker(great to come home to a cooked meal) more than enough of crockery etc and heaps of storage space.THANK YOU!!!!! We'll be back.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
