"Fantastic place for a weekend. Perfect for a group of friends or couples. Everything you need is supplied. Plenty of space to do whatever you want. Really quiet surroundings, great place to unwind, but still close enough to all the wineries, restaurants etc."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome property The house was perfect! It is so private and had everything you could ever need. It was so relaxing and our dog also loved exploring the property! We did a wine tour with Andrew which was also great, but I did feel bad that he had to put up with a bunch of wine filled friends singing Daryl Braithwaite on the way home.. Thanks Val and Andrew!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely property, great for 8-10 people Lovely spot 15 mins drive from the heart of Polbokin, but with a lot to see and do between the house and there. Very secluded and quiet with fantastic views and surrounded by wineries. The house is very large with a fabulous living area with a gigantic table, perfect for entertaining, and lovely big and cosy sofas. Very warm with heat pumps and a fire for the colder months. Too cold for swimming when we were there but the pool area is lovely and would be great in summer. We had 11 people in our group but that was a bit many, as one of the rooms has two double beds in it and the double sofa bed too, so that means that if you have more than 10 guests some people will have to share. No curtains in the living area so not really an option to bring the sofa bed out. Fine for some groups obviously, but something to be aware of! The small room off the master is very small and basic compared to all the other rooms, three of which are very big with king/super-king beds (super comfy too!) So, perfect for 8 people, alright for 10 if you don't mind sharing. Also be aware that while 4 of the 5 bedrooms have an ensuite one has a (lovely) spa bath but no shower, so if you're not in the mood for a bath you'll have to jump into someone else's bathroom! Andrew, one of the hosts, is a lovely guy, and next time we are back we will hopefully be able to go on a winery tour with him, which would be really fun. Thank you for having us.
