Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lakeside bliss Taking our mini Schnauzer and extended family away for some R&R allowed my husband and I to go kayaking up and down Smith’s Lake. So peaceful- more amenities than we expected in the small but essential array of shops nearby. The home was wonderfully comfortable being open, fresh and light with magical views of the Lake. We were able to wheel our kayaks to lakes edge and launch them so easily. The quality of the water was so good All the beds, Manchester, appliances, dining /lounge furniture was fresh and solid, BBQ and outdoor area on balcony a top entertaining as well as doggie retreat. Fenced garden for children and animals a fantastic asset. Looking forward to visiting again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Location Had a lovely week with family and grandchildren who loved the kayak and tinnie. It bought back childhood memories of holidays at our Summerhouse on the lake in Northern Sweden. The local bakery, with its hot 'sourdough' in the morning, the local butcher with good quality meat and best of all the local commercial fisherman removing and selling his catch from the net all made for a great week. We found the house comfortable and tastefully decorated with stunning views.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful place to rejuvenate! We spent a sunny week with our children and parents in this beautiful home. The open plan living area was comfortable and warm, perfect for playing games and sharing meals together. The construction made the house very quiet at night, and we all slept well. The place was so peaceful we slowed down our pace to enjoy it. We relished sitting in the hammock in the evenings, watching our kids skim rocks over the water as the sun set over the lake. The kayak and tinny were great! Paddling through glassy reflections and seeing giant freshwater jellyfish was amazing. We caught fish from the nearby beaches and enjoyed sitting on the deck, eating the fish straight off the BBQ. We also liked being able to stroll to the local bakery and Frothy Coffee Boatshed for meals. We kept our active kelpie secure on the deck, or opened the side deck gate to let her run down into the fenced yard. She was very happy greeting other dogs in the reserve. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a pet friendly family holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC - Lake views to die for!!! We could not be happier with our stay at Ripples - the view from the living area and balcony are amazing! The house itself is more than comfortable and covers off on your every need. We would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful house to anyone!
