ReviewsWrite a review
Was anxious that this place was going to be all I wanted it to be - when Colleen was showing us around what was going to be our home for the next week I was close to tears with relief that it was all and more than I had hoped for. Beautifully rustic but modern and clean and comfortable. Keith and Colleen are great hosts - the views are stunning, the swimming pool perfect for relaxing by. Everything you want is a short drive away - bars, restaurants, supermarkets, river swimming (15 mins walk and there's a bar). A little bit further afield are some lovely towns and if you want the beach you're looking at about 40 mins drive. But to be honest you've got all you need without going to the beach. Temperature, if you've not been to this area before, was ideal - it got to 30 degrees one day but the rest of the time it was was between 22 and 26 - so not too hot but hot enough to go home with a tan. Would highly recommend!!
