Stayed January 2022

Great little house for a family lakeside holiday. Good parking, nice deck for meals and relaxing, located close to boat ramp and reserve, and loved the sound of the native birds in the morning and evening.

Stayed December 2021

Place is nice & private great for relaxing & for the kids to play around. Lake just couple mins away with amazing swimming spots . Would rent again

Stayed July 2021

Poor service, not delivering even basic requirements eg. hot water. Poor management and lacking spirit to look after guests, items were not properly fixed and after check out ask us to pay to fix something that was broken before we moved in, for an item that was not damaged by us and ignored our feedback.

Bachcare replied

We appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback on your stay and are so very sorry that this was not the Bachcare experience we would have liked to provide for you. We have been glad to discuss this with you further directly.
