Unbelievably terrible service from Bachcare. We arrived with no passcode for the front door couldn't get hold of anyone, no one called back. 2 hours we waited. Finally found someone through facebook messenger. All this said the property was fantastic and would happily stay again.

In spite of poor communication with Batchcare, we found the property had what we needed for a short stay. The property is located on the lake shore and has a café close by. Apartment 5 had a partial view of the lake. The apartments are well equipped, the barbeque was handy and so were the washing machine and drier. We enjoyed the pool and the gym was well equipped.
