Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just gorgeous We so enjoyed ourselves at this beautiful property. It is the perfect holiday house with all the comforts you can ask for. We sat by the fire and watched the wildlife outside. The pantry was well stocked with all the basics so we had no problems preparing our gourmet meals to accompany our Tassie wines! The children loved the tree swing outside and were just as happy lazing by the fire with games and DVD! Thanks, Jan for your hospitality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property!! Must be one of if not the best property we have stayed at so far! Whether sunshine or rainy this house was perfect! The house was cozy on those cold rainy days and great to open up and enjoy the sun on the deck. We stayed with our 5 and 8 year old boys and they also absolutely loved the property and it catered well for them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dissapointed compared with other properties I have stayed at in this price bracket it does not match up, but does have great potential. was very disappointed to see the open fire had been changed to a wood heater as if I had of known this prior I would not have booked this property, the open fire was one of the major reason I chose this property. there was a terrible chemical smell when we first arrived and so we had to leave the doors open for the first hour or so as it was giving us a headache. this smell was in the house each time we returned during our stay. wonderful touch with the fresh flowers left and the coffee pods and coffee machine where a life saver. The caretaker turning up and hanging around out the front before checkout time while we packed up was very disconcerting too and made us feel incredibly uncomfortable. this property has great potential but is overpriced for what is offered in comparison to other properties in this price bracket. wonderful view and if you have children it would be lovely (apart from the smell).
