Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCEPTIONAL This has got to be without a doubt one of the best places i have ever had the pleasure in staying, the perfect family getaway, just wish i had stayed longed but unfortunately we drove to the Top of Gloucester Tops, had a lovely picnic and then the car wouldnt start ( dead battery.. of all places!!) and had to be rescued by the police which pretty much ended our lovely stay ( stuck up the mountain is always fun with two kids!!) !!! Oh well... these the breaks... but we will be back .... The firepit was amazing and the kids loved the openness of the property and so did puppy!!! thanks guys...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So close to perfect! The house, location, view and inclusions were amazing! Our expectations were definitely met....except....the only downfall was the electricity supply. We understand the house is set up to be environmental, using the sun as much as possible and using the generator when weather does not provide. But even with the generator kicking in we had some issues when using the oven, where we had to turn off most lights and electrical items for it to actually work.
