Appreciate the friendliness

My brother and I were welcomed by the manager with a glass of wine each and a chat. Very much appreciate the friendliness of this man. The separate 2xbedroom unit was very comfortable, private and quiet.

Rooms are so comfortable

We have stayed here a few times now and love the welcoming we receive from the owners. The rooms are so comfortable and we love listening to the birds in the morning surrounded by bush.

Lovely relaxing location and rooms

Lovely relaxing location and rooms. Peaceful little garden, and thoughtful to have good quality mosquito-blinds on windows just in case. We didn't use the pool, but that looked nice. The jacuzzi was a welcome feature.

Salt pool was a bonus

The grounds were clean and tidy. The facilities are modern and the rooms have great privacy. It’s in the perfect location and the salt pool was a bonus. Andrew and Jackie are the best host. They are very welcoming and you can tell they take pride in their work.

Love the spa bath!

Love the spa bath, fruit trees you can help yourself to, the deck out on to grass, nestled in a bush setting but right next to main road with cafes and chocolate factory within walking by distance.

I will definitely be back

The location was good and the owner was warm and friendly. She showed us to our room and turned our TV on for us, as it is sometimes daunting having to navigate an unfamiliar remote control. We also received complimentary glasses of wine, which was a real treat. The room was clean and the bed comfy. I will definitely be back.
