Excellent location but dirty everywhere and painted in a colour that somebody color- blinded would cry while looking at it. Back to Bookabach and Harcourts rentals, never again with Bach"care"

Lovely 'Bach" where we felt comfortable...good outside eating area under shade. Sleeping arrangements very good. Would stay here again.

Stayed April 2019

This is a lovely spot to stay in a great location. The younger members of our family loved the bath on the deck and we all enjoyed being so close to the lake.

Stayed December 2018

The property was in a great spot that is set in a quiet neighbourhood. The house is quite dated and the bathroom/toilet facilities needs updating as do the beds, singles small and uncomfortable, living area was pleasant. The hot water had good pressure but an annoying vibrating when used and the shower drips.
