Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, clean contemporary home for families Fabulous house for a quiet getaway, especially with young children. Beautiful surroundings, quality design and finishes. Definitely recommend. Only downside are very limited direct sunshine during mornings. And we found one of the bedrooms to be quite chilly at night time (we stayed in late winter, the other rooms benefited from heat from the fireplace downstairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous house in a great spot As many of the other reviewers have said - this is a beautiful house and it exceeded our expectations. It is light and airy with loads of features. It is nestled in the trees which makes it very private. There is onone property to the left but no one was there when we stayed so it felt like we were in a tropical oasis. You can only see glimpses of the lake. There's a path down to the lake with a little beach and we got a fire going and sat under the stars. So lovely! We had 2 families (= 8 people) for 6 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The living area is downstairs with a seperate rumpus for the kids (win) and a fire place which we made good use of in our July stay. The rumpus was pretty cold though and there was no heating in there. One other criticism of significant proportions for me was there was no coffee machine (first world problems...). We had to make do with; sigh; a plunger!... Upstairs is 4 br- 2 are mains at either end with 2 rooms interconnected for the kids. It's a great place and I will be back for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful property This property was every bit as lovely as the photos suggest. Beautifully presented, competitively priced. Wonderful bedrooms, confotable beds and pillows, plenty of spares, great bathrooms with spectacular baths. Two separate living areas as shown, great for families or those who want/need some space while travelling. Nice location and views. Also a terrific deck out the front for breakfast with a view or late afternoon drinks. A little bit stingy on some things that are normally standard for stayz properties, for example, no soap in any of the bathrooms. This would have been fine if articulated, but it wasn't and that was a hassle until a visit to the shops. Although overall well presented, the place could have done with a really good scrub.
