Relaxing private retreat

  • 5 of 5

Roos with a View far exceeded our hopes for a private, tranquil getaway! We were blown away by the location with bushland at the backdoor step to wander through undisturbed, marveling at the beautiful wildflowers and wildlife along the way. The total privacy was a bonus as we sat on the front deck watching the birdlife & kangaroos in the beautiful native garden , where we were also blessed by a visiting emu! Kookaburras were also regular visitors. The house itself was immaculately presented and extremely comfortable, with lovely touches and an extremely well equipped kitchen. We cannot thank Frank & Sylvia enough for allowing us the opportunity to stay in their beautiful oasis and highly recommend a stay here!
