Stayed May 2022

Awesome stay, great location! House was warm and had lots of spaces to spread out into, considering we were a group of 6.

Stayed May 2022

Beautiful home, great for a couple, family or friend get together. Would definitely revisit.

Stayed April 2022

Well equipped, nice modern holiday house.

Stayed January 2022

The house is set up perfectly for a family to enjoy. Plenty of space and nicely laid out. However if you are planning in staying in the coming months be warned houses are being built directly next to the house and the noise of diggers day in day out really grindes you down. Might be best to plan big days out rather than sit at home with all the doors shut to stop noise and dust. Also before you leave home GET HOLD OF BACHCARE and get the lock number for the shed as all the outdoor furniture is inside. We are now home and despite 3 emails and a voicemail they never came back to us.

Thank you for your feedback, Lisa! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the spaces and layout at The Best Kept Secret. We are closely monitoring the work next door as we weren't aware this was going to happen, so while this is out of our control we do apologise for the inconvenience this has caused you. A note has been added to the listing so guests are made aware prior to booking while the work continues. We are terribly sorry that you couldn't get through to us during your stay. The garden shed lock code is on the house manual available at the property. We hope that you had a lovely holiday despite noise and communication issues!

We are a family of 5 with kids aged 8, 6 and 5. The house was perfect for us. The house was very warm with the heat pump on when we arrived and everything we needed to light the fire. It was extremely clean and well presented. The couches and beds were comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. It has Netflix

Excellent family home. The perfect weekend getaway for our family! We would book this place again. New home, good value for money and well located.

Stayed June 2020

Excellent place to stay and all the modern amenities. Love the blinds :) And having an extra lounge area was bliss with two 12yr olds...... Going on 20 :) So handy to town, pools and golf course, yet very peaceful. The log fire helps in the winter time Will definitely look to return at some point in the future
