Amazing property!!! The views are stunning. Vittoria is so lovely and welcoming
Thanks so much
A perfect place...a slice of heaven...
We booked this house after seeing the beautiful pictures. Let me tell you, they don't do the property justice! A perfect home combining comfort, space and wanting for nothing. Long days in the sun... walking, snoozing or playing one of the many games provided for outside and indoors. Spending your evenings cooking up a feast in the beautiful well equipped kitchen or lazing in front of the fireplace. This is a home away from home. I will definitely be back! I kind of want to keep it my secret place...but that just wouldn't be fair. The world should know about this slice of heaven.
Had a wonderful stay in tranquil surroundings. Felt at home in luxury- beautiful home, beautiful view.
The property was wonderful, every amenity catered for. Short drive to KV and Berry shops
Family celebration with 7 adults who flew in from interstate and overseas.
Wonderful setting, everything very homey and comfortable, beautifully decorated.
Feels like a second home...
...only nicer. It has everything you need, in a beautiful location, and in close proximity to the town at Kangaroo Valley. (We had incredible breakfasts at the General Store cafe.)
We love the massive kitchen and the open back lounge room. We spent most of our time there, or on the chairs out the back. Even though it rained most of the weekend we were warm and protected.
Highly recommended and we look forward to our third visit soon.
Great Property！ Highly recommend！
This house is amazing. It's even more beautiful than what's on the picture.
There are so all kinds of DVDs and card games the group can enjoy.
The kitchenware was so much better than our expectation. Basically， anything you need is there for you.
We all loved our stay！Highly recommend！
