Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property; Awesome House This excellent property and awesome house made the perfect place to prepare for our daughter's wedding. The immaculate grounds allowed for some fantastic wedding photos as well. Enjoying a spa on the verandah whilst watching the sun set was so relaxing, as was fishing off the private jetty. The house was clean and very well equipped with linen, towels, tea towels, crockery, utensils etc. All we had to bring was food. Delicious fresh eggs daily from the chickens were a treat. The location of the property was quiet and private. We would highly recommend this property, and will definitely stay there again.
