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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely property, beautiful view Six of us have just spent five nights at Ripples and have had the best time. The spacious living area fronting the wide deck overlooking the lake, the beautiful sunsets, the well equipped kitchen, the comfy sofas, the amazingly good pictures on the walls - I loved the large sea scene canvas - the excellent furnishings, the use of the dinghy and kayak, the fenced garden for the dogs, the proximity to beautiful leash free Blueys Beach (five minutes in the car early each morning) and the perfect weather all helped to make for a great holiday for us and our friends from the UK. Thank you Lynne and David. We will return. Hilary and Peter

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location and fun property! Really enjoyed the stay at Ripples - the house is lovely and well equiped. Having the lake in the "backyard" plus the use of the tinny and kayak really made for a relaxing break. Would definitely go back!
