Horseshoe House was so named because our toddler spotted the lucky horseshoe on the front door, that we had not noticed until we had completely settled in... We hope does not conjure up images of horses in the front yard, although there are quite a few around the corner

HH is a family oriented, spacious, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house.

The 4 bedrooms include:

- Master bedroom with Queen bed and a full bathroom ensuite shower, toilet & vanity

- Main bathroom with bath & shower combination, toilet & vanity

- Large bedroom with Queen bed with BIR

- Large bedroom with one Double bed and two Singles with BIR

- 4th bedroom used mainly as a games room kids / teen retreat. It has its own TV, DVD player, Wii / Playstation console with lots of games, and movies, toys for all ages, boardgames and books.

All bedrooms have a lush, green outlook of picturesque Warburton scenery All linen and bedding is provided.

The large living area is spacious enough to fit the whole family, with large, comfortable couches, yet can be cosy enough for a snuggle or a read by the wood fireplace. It also has a big screen TV with USB capability, and is the heart of the house, opening up to the modern, open plan Chef's Kitchen and Dining. The table can be extended to accommodate up to 8 people.

Horseshoe House is extremely Child Friendly There are plenty of activities on top of the games room to keep young minds and bodies active. From a rocking horse, colouring in books and crayons for wet days in, to a sand pit with Tonka Trucks and slide for sunny days outside. Kids under 2 stay free - there is a port-a-cot you may use; you will need to provide the cot bedding.

We are also Dog Friendly, no cats I'm sorry, we are allergic and we find they don't stay in designated zones so easily we request that when inside pets are only allowed in the laundry and games room as some of our guests may have pet allergies. It should also be noted that our fencing is not entirely secure - our local wombat is responsible for this.

The bathroom has a full-sized bath tub and shower. You are welcome to use the washing machine in our laundry, and try out the clothes airer of yesteryear above the fireplace.

The dishwasher will also be very helpful with those wine glasses.

At HH we are trying to offer something we believe is necessary for the area - THE GENUINELY AFFORDABLE FAMILY HOLIDAY. For this reason we may not have the hot tub spa, but for the price we do offer clean and comfortable accommodation that suits a couple, or a couple of couples, or a couple of couples and their kids. We hope you appreciate Horseshoe House as much as we do.

Oh, and the birds The yard will be literally littered with the beautiful colours of these native beauties we will also supply the seed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Family Getaway! The house was spacious, super kid friendly and perfect for a family retreat. The owners were absolutely lovely and we'd definitely stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A home away from home! We had a wonderful time with the kids. All three loved the "kid cave". It felt like home but far more relaxing. The bird feeding was a hit too. My 11 month old loved watching the cockatoos through the window.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean peaceful property. Thanks to Jess and family for a pleasant stay. House was clean and very comfortable and had everything to accommodate us as a family. Back end of house and backyard was also loved by our border collie who loved the length of the yard to run and chase his ball. I definitely recommend this family home to all for a relaxing getaway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Relaxing Family Retreat As the very first guests of Horseshoe House, we received a warm welcome from the owners. The property was in a quiet location, with only a short stroll to the river. The house itself was much bigger than it looks in the pictures, and the back yard is huge. Our 3 year old son loved the puzzles and toys available in the play room and backyard. But the biggest surprise for him was to be able to feed the native birds in a bird-feeder on the front verandah, and watch them flying in from all around to have a snack. We found the kitchen well equipped with everything you would expect, and some bonus items like condiments and lollipops which gave this place a very homely feel. We loved our stay, and look forward to coming back again soon!
