KirstenStayed January 2022
A wonderful location, set in lovely bush surrounding and so close to the lake. The downstairs living area, outside space and bedrooms are great, however the internal steps to the upstairs bedrooms are quite steep and not really suitable for young children.
MelissaStayed January 2022
We were two families and this place accommodated us well. Great location.
TammyStayed January 2022
Lovely house, really great location. Had everything we needed. The stairs are very steep and not suitable for under 5 year olds at all. House is a good size and the new extension is great. The house could of done with a bit more of a deep clean - a lot of dust by beds etc. Overall we had a great time and really enjoyed our stay. Thank you

Fantastic location, beautiful secluded and quiet property tucked away 50m from the beach. Lovely summer holiday spot.
IsabellaStayed January 2021
This property is so close to the lake, it was fantastic to be able to go back to the bach for food or some shade so easily. The Bach is mixture of old style with a newer extension. The stairs are steep but we had two families with four children aged between 5 and 8 who could carefully manage the steep stairway, younger children would need to be supervised. Would loved our stay.
BStayed December 2020
Great location, only steps to the lake. Comfy beds but no darkening curtains on windows so very bright in the mornings, take eye-masks. Would ideally suit a small family but not with very young chn as stairs too dangerous. Unfortunately was a bit too small and ill equipped for our 2 families of 8 pple. But enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for your feedback. We agree the location of this property is amazing and are happy to hear you enjoyed it. We do mention on our listing to take caution on the stairs as they are steep. We hope to be able to welcome you back in the future.

So very close to the lake and public playground, awesome native bird experience. Upstairs not child friendly. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
JaclynStayed May 2020
Location of the property was great, however the "friends" living in the ceiling weren't welcome and a good spring clean wouldn't go amiss.
TammyStayed October 2019
We had a wonderful time at your house. It was close to the lake and had great bird life to watch and listen to. Thank you.
