Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely retreat in the bush. My family and I were met by the owner, Rod, who handed us a very welcome drink. He happened to be at the property working on the grounds, a friendly fellow with a passion for the bush. Before he left, Rod showed us how to fill up the outdoor spa tub, what a terrific way to cool down! The back veranda of the big house faced onto a sunset over the swampland. With some big rains on Saturday night, the dam started filling up and we got to see some great bird life. Rod had even started building a “bird hide” on the ridge. In the house, I very much enjoyed cooking in the pretty stunning hardwood and slate kitchen. I found everything I needed, but the owners are still equipping the kitchen. I believe we were one of the first guests. The open living room had a wooden floor and a high ceiling that made me want to do yoga or dancing and there is a lovely didgeridoo which I enjoyed playing. The beds were comfortable and we slept well with the fans; we didn’t bother to turn the aircon on.
