Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful location Lots of room to explore the environment and fish off the jetty. The kids loved seeing the cows everyday, and going on frog hunts in the evening (gorgeous green tree frogs). We loved the beaches at old bar and at crowdys point. Manning point was a great place to explore too. It was nice to have all the kids in one room together with the trundle under the bunk perfect for our little one. Sunrises and sunsets were just magical, we even got blessed with a rainbow reaching across the manning river. The appliances in the kitchen and laundry were a pleasure to use, and it was nice to have a real tv to watch in the evenings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rivers Edge is Exactly RIght We found the house to be as described and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked with everything which is sometimes an issue in holiday houses. Oh and its so nice not to have to bring home a huge load of linen to wash as its provided! Whilst not a farm stay there are a few cows in the area and fields which the kids loved. Its a beautiful base to explore the local area.
