Some of our recent guests have said:
"The stay at your property was very pleasant and Venus bay is a beautiful
location. Our children loved watching the clear skies filled with millions
of stars at night. Pity we didn't have a telescope. They were mesmerised by
the kangaroos and wombats at night. They were in awe of the cows grazing on
your back fence in the mornings or at twilight." Nicolette, January 2015
"We all had a blast and everyone was pleased as to how the house was stocked up. Plus, the view was fantastic, made it a really soothing holiday. I will definitely be recommending your place to my mates." Tavish, October 2013
