Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cellitos. The kids had a ball in the pool everyday and the games room is so well equipped. Beautiful view of Smiths lake from the kitchen and balcony.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home away from Home We found Cellitos very comfortable and peaceful. The views were stunning and the outdoor area was relaxing in the sun. Our boys enjoyed all of the toys and the pool. If we return to Smiths Lake, we will definitely stay here again. Thanks Debe for your hospitality, we really appreciated it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stay! Beautiful house with great views. Very spacious with ample space for families. The pool was also fantastic (although a little cold in April). There are also shops a few minutes walk up the road. Using the canoe across the lake to the Sandbar was the highlight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Inside and Out! Cellitos was a wonderful choice for our mother's group weekend away without the kids! However, upon seeing all the great things for the kids to play with, many of us were planning our next trip with the kids! It had everything we were after, beautiful pool, fun games room, and comfy resting areas. Debe was very welcoming and happy to assist with any questions we had, and gave great tips for things to do in the local area. We couldn't recommend Cellitos any more highly, thank you again Debe for a great stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as it gets. Words and pictures don't do this property justice.!! From the greeting from Debbe and Scott to an immaculately presented home that was faultless for the week we stayed is a credit to both Debbe and Scott. Added with the great location of Smiths Lake and surrounds made for a fantastic stay. After many years using Stayz for our yearly holiday i can honestly say this is by far our favourite accommodation/destination we have visited yet. Will be worried next holiday of a let down so may just have to return next year.!! Many thanks Debbe and Scott, The Keegan family.
