Rated 1 out of 5 by from not for me The house is in a good location, surrounding gardens are cute etc but accommodation itself did leave a bit to be desired. No lounge to relax on, and the bed itself is a sofa bed so wasn't very comfortable. There was also a miscommunication about my dogs - she was quite put out that one of them was larger than she had expected, and expected the dogs would not be left alone on the property/in the cabin during our stay. This had not been communicated to us, and on the first day, after they were left along for two hours (after a big play in the bush) we received a message asking if our dogs were okay alone in the cabin (it was hard to feel like we had much privacy.) Ultimately despite these things, it was good to have cheap accommodation so we left on a good note, however, upon driving home we started to receive strange, rude messages and emails from the owner accusing us of leaving the place in an unacceptable manner. While we are happy to take ownership of problems that arise and deal with them in a respectful way, she dealt with these (quite strange) issues very unprofessionally, leaving us feeling quite confused and upset.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great basic property It is advertised as artist studio, without internet, phone or TV. Exactly what we wanted. Peace and quiet, lovely garden to enjoy and not far from natural bush and waterfalls.
