Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic retreat right on River and rail trail !! Thank you to the owner and manager , Our family plus two dogs had the best long weekend with lush secluded surrounds in a spacious luxurious home away from home . Amazingly well equipped kitchen even a spiralizer !!! Great sun drenched deck trees and parrots overhead , fruit trees and the river beyond - a hammock too ! Super comfy beds and linen , spa bath candles and sauna - we felt spoilt - the gift pack was generous and nothing was too much trouble when we contacted Robin the property manager for advice re activities close by with our pets . A dog bed was there too !!!! Highly recommend this property and will be rebooking soon . Evie .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOTAL LUXURY Had the best weekend at the property. The split aircons warmed the place up before we got the big fire place going with the hydronic panels. Such a big house with so much room. The configuration will be perfect for my next stay with my family and friends and the descrition of the layout of the rooms was spot on. The welcome pack was a very nice entry present. It set the tone for our stay. The only complaint I have is It needs a nespresso machine but when I come back Ill bring my own. Thanks again for everything. Lindsay
