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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Property not suited for 3 couples. Good location. Nowhere to store food items when staying for extended period. Only 1 actual bedroom. Upstairs sleeping areas not at all private. Limited storage space as private items still located in house. Lounge room only had seating for 4, so had to move furniture from other rooms to cater for 6 people. The 1 bedroom and ensuite was very luxurious and comfortable.
